Nutella Cheesecake Bars


Nutella Cheesecake Bars Recipe

Makes 16 Bars | Prep Time: 30 minutes | Bake Time: 50 minutes (total)

Adapted from The Moonlight Baker; via LiveLovePasta


2 cups Oreo crumbs
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
16 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
2 eggs, at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon heavy cream
1 vanilla bean, halved and seeds scraped (or 1 tsp vanilla extract)
1/3 cup Nutella


Preheat oven to 325F (170C). Butter an 8×8 baking dish and line with parchment paper, making sure that the parchment is well pressed in the corners. Set aside.

In a food processor, pulse Oreos until they become crumbs. Add in melted butter and pulse until moistened. Press Oreo mixture evenly into the bottom of your baking dish. Bake crust until set, about 12 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Clean out the food processor. Add cream cheese, eggs, sugar, ¼ cup heavy cream, and vanilla. Pulse until smooth. Put 2/3 of the cream cheese mixture in a bowl and set aside.

Add Nutella and 1 tablespoon of heavy cream to the remaining 1/3 cream cheese mixture in the processor. Pulse until smooth.

To assemble, spread the plain cheesecake mixture over the cooled Oreo crust, being careful of the crust. Then pour the Nutella cheesecake layer on top of the plain cheesecake layer and spread evenly.

Bake on the center rack of the oven for about 35 minutes, or until the center jiggles slightly. Remove from the oven and cool completely on a cooling rack. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

When ready to serve, lift the bars out of the pan by lifting up the parchment paper (it should release easily). Cut into 16 squares and serve.

Cook’s Note:

Put the Nutella cheesecake mixture into a piping bag, then pipe on top of the plain cheesecake layer, to get more even layer than spreading.

    1 vanilla bean, halved and seeds scraped (or 1 tsp vanilla extract)

  13. Jac says:

    This might be a dumb question, but when I make the oreo crumbs, do I have to remove the white cookie filling or do I pulse the whole cookie?

  14. miishkoo says:

    Hello, I was wondering which cheese should I use. I have 170 gr of Philadelphia and 500 gr of Mascarpone and I don’t know which to use. Would it be okay if I mixed them? If so, how much of each should I put? Or do I only put one of them? Would it taste differently if I used Mascarpone instead of Philadelphia? Thank you so much!

  15. Bee says:

    Can I freeze this a few weeks before consuming?

  16. Bev says:

    Not sure what you mean by ‘heavy-cream’. The grocery store carries half-n-half and whipping cream. Also, what temperature should the oven be?
