Nutella Cheesecake - easy no-bake cheesecake loaded with Nutella and hazelnut. Creamy, rich, the best Nutella Cheesecake recipe ever, by Nigella Lawson.
- 10 oz. graham crackers (digestive biscuits)
- 5 tablespoons soft unsalted butter
- 13 oz. Nutella at room temperature
- ¾ cup chopped toasted hazelnuts
- 1 lb. cream cheese, at room temperature
- ½ cup confectioners' sugar sifted
1Break the graham crackers (digestives) into the bowl of a processor, add the butter and 15 ml or 1 tablespoon of Nutella, and blitz until it starts to clump. Add 25g/3 tablespoons of the hazelnuts and continue to pulse until you have a damp, sandy mixture.
2Tip into a 23 cm/9-inch round springform and press into the base either using your hands or the back of a spoon. Place in the fridge to chill.
3Beat the cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until smooth and then add the remaining Nutella to the cream cheese mixture, and continue beating until combined.
4Take the springform out of the fridge and carefully smooth the Nutella mixture over the base. Scatter the remaining chopped hazelnuts on top to cover and place the tin in the fridge for at least four hours or overnight. Serve straight from the fridge for best results.

I love your recipes but I get a 404 error (page not found) each and every time I click to save them. The print function works OK.
I’m ready to try this. I m wondering why powdered sugar instead of regular granulated white sugar. I think I know the answer, but please explain why. Thanks!
This recipe is from Nigella Lawson. I just followed the recipe. Granulated might not completely dissolve.
The granulated sugar gives a grainy texture when mixed in the powdered sugar gives a smoother taste that’s why

Will try soon
I love it, thank you for the recipe
Very good, but the crust was crumbly and to thick. I will try half the amount of graham crackers next time.
Is the sugar the same as iceing sugar please. Could I sustitute sweetener. Thanks
Yes. Don’t use sweetener. I don’t know how it affects the results.
I made this and it tasted amazing. My crust was a bit overdry and crumbly so next time I will melt the butter instead of softening or add a bit more. The filling was divine.
Awesome, so glad that you tried this Nutella Cheesecake recipe.
I’ve made it. it is easy and DELISH!
