Nutella Cheesecake Mousse
Nutella Cheesecake Mousse – light, fluffy Nutella cheesecake mousse in a glass, with hazelnuts. Super easy dessert recipe for special occasions.
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.
