The best quick and easy no bake Nutella cheesecake recipe with Oreo crust, homemade with simple ingredients. Loaded with a decadent, rich, creamy, mousse-like Nutella filling.

I love Nutella so much that I can eat it straight out of the jar by the spoonfuls. It tastes amazing as a spread, dip or even a filling in cakes, cupcakes and cookies but my favorite way to use it is in this cheesecake, hands down!

Easy Nutella Cheesecake With Oreo Crust

Today’s recipe is one of the most requested from my family and friends. It looks and tastes as if it may have taken hours of work but in reality, it’s super fast to prepare. You can even make it a few days in advance of a party and kids can also help.

First things first, this is not a Nutella swirl cheesecake nor is it a baked Nutella cheesecake. Those are different recipes and require turning on the oven and baking.

Tips and Techniques

  • Can I use whipped cream instead of Cool Whip? Yes, make Homemade Whipped Cream and when stiff peaks form, fold it into the Nutella filling.
  • What to do if filling is too thin to pipe? Chill the cheesecake mixture in the fridge for 20-30 minutes so that it firms up a bit and then you can easily pipe.
  • Add cheesecake toppings– I used chocolate sprinkles but you can also use other types or colors of sprinkles, chopped nuts (especially hazelnuts), shredded chocolate, chocolate curls, chopped up candy bars, whipped cream or Dulce De Leche. A light drizzle of ganache or warm Nutella is also delicious or you can even try this Nutella Syrup.
  • Try a different crust– Instead of making an Oreo Nutella cheesecake, use a Graham Cracker crust.
  • Measure properly- This is especially with regards to Nutella. It is 3/4 cup, NOT 1 cup. Adding a whole cup will make the mixture thin and you will have to fix it by adding more powdered sugar to thicken it. That will obviously change the flavor and make the filling sweeter.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Oreo pie crust mixture and spoon it into 12 cavities of a lightly greased muffin pan or cupcake pan.

  5. Fold in the whipped cream until smooth and creamy.

  6. Attach the star tip to a piping bag and fill it with this cheesecake mixture.

  7. Remove pan from freezer. Gently tun it over to a sheet of wax paper or parchment paper and tap the pan until the mini crusts come out.

  8. Pipe the cheesecake filling on top of each mini Oreo crust. 

  9. Sprinkle chocolate sprinkles.

  10. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours so that it firms up even further. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • Read all my tips above.
  • In the pictures, you will notice that I used a combination of graham cracker crumbs and Oreo crumbs but you can just use Oreo crumbs. 
  • If you like a thick crust, make 2 batches of my Oreo crust.
  • Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
