Nutella® has long been the rich, decadent, dreamy, creamy combo of hazelnut and cocoa we can always count on to take our favorite desserts to the next level of delicious. So it was only a matter of time before we combined it with our other favorite creamy, rich dessert— cheesecake, of course!
What’s more, these can’t-have-just-one bite-sized treats are baked on an easy-to-make chocolate cookie crust. The traditional cheesecake layer gets sandwiched between it and a to-die-for Nutella® cheesecake layer that’s basically everything we want in our dessert life.
Want to make sure those layers come out crystal-clear and perfect, so all of your friends will be as impressed by the presentation as they are by the taste? Pop the first cheesecake layer into the refrigerator or even the freezer to let it firm up while you make the Nutella® layer.
Care more about flavor and fun than super-straight lines? You can also throw caution to the wind and use a fork or toothpick to mix the layers together for a sweet swirl of both kinds of cheesecake.
You can never have too many Nutella® recipes, right? That’s what we thought. Check out some of our favorites, from dessert to breakfast and back again:
