Self-taught baker Eloise Head has a Nutella cheesecake recipe that doesn't require any baking.
The cheesecake has an Oreo crust, plus a filling with Nutella, cream cheese, and powdered sugar.
Head's recipe only has a few steps, making this cheesecake easy to make for everyone.
A great cheesecake usually takes a lot of time — and a lot of effort.
And it doesn't even require an oven.
"This is one of my favorite cheesecakes," Head said. "It's so creamy, so chocolaty, and it tastes amazing."
Eloise Head's no-bake Nutella cheesecake only needs a few simple ingredients
To make the crust, you'll need:
26 Oreos (finely crushed)
90 grams unsalted butter (melted)
To make the filling, you'll need:
500 grams cream cheese
450 grams Nutella
400 milliliters heavy cream
80 grams powdered sugar
For the topping, you'll need:
150 grams Nutella (melted)
3-4 tablespoons roasted hazelnuts (chopped)
"Make sure you use full-fat cream cheese and that it's at room temperature," Head told Insider. "This will help it mix more easily and set better."
Head said it's also important to use cold heavy cream, which will help it whip to stiff peaks.
Here's how to make the no-bake Nutella cheesecake
To begin, add your crushed Oreos and melted butter into a bowl and mix until they're combined. Pour your mixture into an 8-inch springform cake pan and press down firmly. Pop the pan into the refrigerator while you make your filling.
Pour your heavy cream into a large bowl and whip it to soft peaks. In a separate bowl, add your cream cheese, Nutella, and powdered sugar and whisk until smooth.
Fold your whipped cream into the bowl with the Nutella and cream cheese. Mix until the ingredients combine but make sure not to overmix — Head said this can make your filling runny.
Scoop your filling onto the Oreo base and smooth it out to the edges. Then refrigerate for at least six hours (Head recommends leaving it in the fridge overnight for the best results).
To finish, pour the melted Nutella over your filling and smooth it out. Then just sprinkle roasted hazelnuts around the edges and your cheesecake is ready!
