Nutella Cheesecake Mousse
Nutella Cheesecake Mousse – light, fluffy Nutella cheesecake mousse in a glass, with hazelnuts. Super easy dessert recipe for special occasions | rasamalaysia.com
Prep Time: | Cook Time: | Total Time:
4 sheets graham crackers
2 tablespoons (20 g) hazelnuts, plus extra for garnish
1 tablespoon (15 g) unsalted butter, melted
1 cup (240 mL) heavy whipping cream
2-3 ounces (56-84 g) cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup (50 g) Nutella
red melting chocolates
With the whisk attachment, add the cream to a stand mixer bowl and whisk on high until thick whipped cream forms. Transfer the whipped cream to a bowl; set aside.
Change the attachment to a beater, and add the cream cheese (as much or as little as you like) and Nutella to the bowl. Mix on high until thoroughly incorporated. Add half the whipped cream to the Nutella mixture. Use a spatula to fold in the whipped cream. Add the rest of the whipped cream, reserving a small quantity for the topping, and fold until evenly mixed. Refrigerate the reserved whipped cream.
Evenly fill the dessert trifles with the mousse. Refrigerate for a minimum of four hours.
Meanwhile, chop the extra hazelnuts for the garnish and toast on the stove until golden brown. Set aside to cool completely.
In a microwave-safe bowl, add a few red melting chocolates and heat in 30-second intervals in the microwave. Stir in between intervals until the chocolate is completely melted. Fit a plastic piping bag with a #1 decorating tip. Fill the bag with the melted chocolate, and begin piping red hearts onto a wax-lined baking sheet. Place the hearts in the freezer to set.
Remove the mousse from the refrigerator when ready to serve. Top with whipped cream, toasted hazelnuts and a chocolate heart.

I am seeing a lot of pink lately almost everywhere I go, and it dawned to me that Valentine’s Day is less than a month away. I reached out to my contributor Baked by Joanna about a Valentine’s Day recipe and she developed this amazing Nutella Cheesecake Mousse recipe with a pink heart on top. Aww, how sweet and beautiful! Read on for her recipe.
Valentine’s Day is a great excuse for whipping up dessert. Decadent treats always sound great, but if you’re like me, I spend the holiday enjoying a really delicious meal that usually is not light. In that respect, I’m opting for a light dessert this time. But don’t worry, I don’t skimp on the decadent part as this dessert is inspired by cheesecake.
Cue the fanfare for my Nutella Cheesecake Mousse. The mousse itself is incredibly light, whereas the flavor has such depth due to the addition of hazelnuts in the Nutella and in the crust. The cream cheese also adds a bit of lusciousness to the dessert’s texture, which is exactly what you want when eating a spoonful of mousse.
And because we’re talking Valentine’s Day, I had to add a chocolate heart. A simple heart outline onto wax paper using melting chocolates and a piping bag creates the cutest and easiest edible decorations. I only used one heart per serving of mousse, but feel free to add as many as you’d like. A few candy melts will create numerous hearts for you to garnish with.
