No-bake Nutella Cheesecake

I know I am quite slow with my posts. I made this cheesecake when my sister was in town, now please don’t ask me when that was, then I may have to see your gawking jaws!!! Hehe… She requested me to make a cheesecake as she wanted to eat one and I have been wanting to make one with Nutella for so long, so landed up with the opportunity to make it. Not that I am a fan of Nutella, in fact, I don’t like it much. Strange, yeah? Maybe, my taste buds are now so saturated towards the taste of it. We always keep a small jar of it in our pantry, as the kids want it on their toasts once in a while. But I really wanted to know how Nutella and cream cheese would gel. You may want to ask me, “You can do that on a toast, right?” Yes, right… but sometimes, you want to know things by making them complicated! πŸ˜›

So having got the perfect excuse to make a cheesecake – in fact, the only cheesecake featured on my blog till now is the Eggless Mango Cheesecake which was more of an Indian “shtyle” and happens to be the all time favorite too! – I put myself into act when the house was empty. I had come back from office, to see that the people in the house had gone for shopping, including the kids. The silence was perfect to lazily make this cheesecake and dump it in to the fridge. It’s just a matter of mix and match and there you go – luscious chocolaty nutty cheesecake is ready! We all enjoyed a slice of it as dessert for dinner the next day… yum…

  • Slowly add in the sugar and continue to beat.
  • Finally add the gelatin water and beat till it is well combined.
  • Take out the springfoam with the base and pour the Nutella cheese mixture on top of it.
  • Allow it to set in the fridge for a minimum of 3 hours or till done.
  • Pull out the sides of the springfoam and cut into slices.
  • Serve with chocolate sauce or fruits of your choice. I decorated it with melted white cream. Bliss!!! πŸ™‚
