On a recent trip to Khan market, my sister brought me two packages of cream cheese. Excited and clueless, I searched the internet to find something very simple and no-fail to make with it. After reading several recipes, I realized that a no bake would definitely be easier for a beginner like me. And trust me when I say, that anyone can make this No Bake Nutella Cheesecake.

No Bake Nutella Cheesecake

I have always fallen for cheesecakes and mousse cakes. Even when on a diet :P. My palate loves the silky smooth creamy taste.
This is the first time I am working with cream cheese and the No Bake Nutella Cheesecake is the perfect recipe to start with.
It’s so simple that you can hardly go wrong with it. You may think, that I say this too often :P. But trust me, I am too lazy to do difficult time consuming baking.

The No Bake Nutella Cheesecake just involves three basic steps.
First make a cookie base for the cheesecake with your favourite cookies.
Next mix the cream cheese with the nutella to form the core of the No Bake Nutella Cheesecake. I have also added dark cocoa powder to it. Before you pour it over the cookie base, lick some and realize how very lucky you are ;).
Next pour some dark chocolate ganache over the cheesecake once set. Dust with cocoa powder.
The bitterness of the cocoa powder balances the sweet nutella and tangy cream cheese.
The result is a thick creamy and sinful dessert!
