Individual No-Bake Nutella Cheesecakes

This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure for further details.

There are so many things I love about this recipe–the individual servings, the ease, the chocolate, the Nutella!  To be honest, this dessert reminds more of a mousse than a cheesecake, but it’s delicious and fun, no matter what you call it. I’ve been thinking about all the other flavors and versions that might be possible.  The possibilities are practically endless.  I got my cute individual serving dishes at Wal Mart, and I know I’ll use them again and again.  These individual cheesecakes would also be really cute served in Mason jars.

    1. I love no bakes. They always come in handy. It looked awesome on the container used =)


    2. I grew up with nutella and will have to try this, specially as it is a no bake dessert!

    3. Making this right now! Putting them in little jelly jars for easy transport to a lunch party!

    4. I made this last night for a girls night in at my house. I just made one large portion instead of induvidual ones that way girls could go back for another bite without feeling guilty that they were eating more than one serving! IT WAS HUGE HIT! They couldnt stay out of it and the entire thing was gone, which usually never happens with dessert 🙂 GREAT recipe I will make again and again! THANKS!

    5. My mom made it, but, she didn’t allow the cream cheese to get soft enough before making it. As a result, there’s a good dessert with small cream cheese lumps throughout.

    6. I am planning an open house for the holidays and I am doing a tasting party. These will be PERFECT since I know that at least half of my gusts LOVE Nutella. I may just have to double or triple the recipe and get some disposable cups for this one! Thanks!!
