I don’t know what the weather is like near you, but it is BLAZIN’ hot here in Ohio. Like you don’t even want to go outside hot.

While Ohio is definitely no stranger to the summer heat, it’s been in the 90’s for what seems like weeks.

And when you happen to have a husband that is most comfortable with a thermostat set to 75 during the day, flipping on the oven to make a cheesecake might just not my best choice.

No-bake nutella cheesecake recipe

We can never have too many no-bake recipes, right? 

I hope you agree, because I sure do love making recipes like this No-Bake Nutella Cheesecake recipe. 

Why do I love no-bake cheesecake recipes so much?

  • They’re quick and easy – you can even whip them up on a weeknight
  • They don’t require me to turn on the oven in the middle of summer
  • There are so many variations you can make!

This version combines my love affair with no-bake and my love affair with all things Nutella.  

The first time I made No-Bake Nutella Cheesecakes, I whipped them up from ingredients I happened to have on hand in my pantry and fridge. I almost always have a jar of Nutella, a package of Oreos, cream cheese, and frozen whipped topping hanging around.

Between the fluffy Nutella filling and the chocolatey Oreo crust, these cheesecakes are pretty much impossible to resist. I like to top them with extra whipped topping and some chocolate shavings just before serving.

Can I use whipped cream instead of whipped topping?

I know not everyone is a fan of frozen whipped topping and some of you might want to use homemade whipped cream in this recipe instead.

Whipped topping has stabilizers in it that help it hold up when folded into recipes like this one. Since whipped cream does not have any stabilizers in it, I can’t promise that it will hold up as well while the cheesecakes chill before serving.

There are some recipes for making stabilized whipped cream at home, but I personally have not tried using the homemade stuff in my no-bake cheesecake recipes.

Can I make this recipe into one large cheesecake?

I like to make this recipe into individual No-Bake Nutella Cheesecakes by putting them into small serving dishes. Depending on the size dishes I use, I usually get 4-6 servings.

You could even make the servings even smaller for a party by putting them into shot glasses.

But you can also make this into one big cheesecake by putting it into an 8-inch pie plate instead of the individual dishes.

    I’ve made these before and they’re always a hit. But do you think these would work in cupcake liners, or would they be too soft and stick? Thank you!

    1. Jamie says:

      Hi Mel – They would definitely be too soft and would stick to the liners. Happy baking!

  2. Vickie says:

    I really don’t like nutella what can I use.

    1. Jamie says:

      Hello! Since the Nutella both flavors and sweetens the recipe, I would not recommend using a different ingredient in its place. If you’re looking for more no-bake cheesecake recipes, I like to several in the post that you might like better. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Hafsa says:

    Wow thankyou. These are great. They are quick and almost easy!

    1. Jamie says:

      So happy to hear you enjoyed the cheesecakes, Hafsa! Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your feedback!

  4. Arooj Farooq says:


    I just want to ask. In your second step, do I mix the whipped cream with Nutella and cream cheese mixture? 
    Or whipped cream is just for the topping?

    1. Jamie says:

      Hello! You will fold the whipped topping into the other ingredients. If desired, you can top with additional whipped topping, but that would be in addition to what is used in the recipe. Hope this helps! Happy baking.

  5. Beth says:

    Hi- I am looking the similar mini-dessert cups to make this recipe. I went to Pier 1 and no luck there.  Need at least 12 for baby shower this weekend and prefer clear glass like in your pic. About how many oz is each one?  I was going to double the recipe and looking at some Libby options on Amazon that are either 2, 3 or 5 oz each.  I was thinking 5 oz?? 

    1. Jamie says:

      Hi Beth – Since this is a no-bake recipe, you can really use whichever size you want the cheesecakes to be. Something in the 4-to-5-ounce range would probably be appropriate for a baby shower (for reference, 1 cup = 8 oz, so 5 ounces is just over 1/2 cup). Hope this helps!

  6. Kristina says:

    I’ve made this several times. So easy and delicious. And my kids love o help prepare it (and eat it). Thanks!

    1. Jamie says:

      Yay! So happy to hear you enjoyed the cheesecakes! Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your feedback. Happy Baking!

    2. Jelena says:

      Love all your recipes!!! What can I replace 1 (8 ounce) tub frozen whipped topping, thawed with? I live in Kenya and we don’t have this. Can I make it myself? Thanks!!

    3. Jamie says:

      Hello! There are a number of homemade cool whip recipes online. I have used some of them to make a stabilized whipped cream frosting that held up well and was delicious, but have not used any of them in recipes like this, so I’m not sure of the result. If you happen to try it, I’d love to hear how they turned out. Happy baking!

  7. Isabella says:

    Can I use this No Bake Nutella Cheesecake as a frosting for cupcakes and cakes? If yes, how good can it hold up high before frosting falls?  Please reply. Thank you.

    1. Jamie says:

      Hi, Isabella! I haven’t tried this, but it sounds like a great idea! I would say make it a couple of hours ahead of when you’re going to serve it and refrigerate it. Let me know how it goes!

  8. Matya says:

    This looks absolutely delicious. Do you think this will last if it is made 3 days in advance and left in the fridge?

    1. Jamie says:

      Hi, Matya! I think it should be just fine. I hope you enjoy it!
