Nutella Cheesecake Brownies

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

Where do I even start with these Nutella Cheesecake Brownies? Basically, you’re getting two amazing desserts in one. First there’s a dense, chewy brownie layer. And that’s topped off with a delicious no-bake Nutella cheesecake layer. Together, they equal a slice of chocolate heaven.

If you’re wondering, yes, you can make the brownie layer and the Nutella cheesecake layer as two separate desserts.

They are both amazing on their own! But why not have two desserts in one? The best part is, they’re really easy to make.

I mean, it is hard to wait for the cheesecake layer to set so you can eat them, but other than that, this is one of those fabulous desserts that makes everyone think you spent hours in the kitchen.

Just try not to eat the Nutella cheesecake layer while you wait for the brownies to cool!

      This recipe sounds pretty amazing!!! Nutella. Cheesecake. Brownies?! Yes, please!!

    3. This sounds sinfully delicious! Wondering if a boxed brownie mix would work instead of doing it from scratch if one is pressed for time?

    4. Looks divine

    5. Merci c’est juste dé li cieux !

    6. Co-worker of mine had never tried Nutella. So I thought this was the perfect recipe to introduce her to the wonderful goo. YUP!

      The cheesecake did not set….. followed the recipe …I notice there was no binding agents…ie gelatine / condensed milk was this the problem?


      • This cheesecake always sets up quite well for me, so I’m not sure what the problem was. If you used a light or low-fat cream cheese, it usually won’t set up nearly as well, so I always recommend full fat products in recipes like this. Whipping the cream until it’s very stiff is the only other suggestion I would make.

        • Donna Ashworth says:

          Thank you for quick response… I used full fat creamcheese maybe cream was a bit soft, I’ll try again


    8. I wanted to make this recipe today, but I was wondering what the measurements on the pan you used are? The layers don’t look too thick so I was thinking a pan larger than 8×8 but I wanted to be sure before I got started!

    9. Made this twice now and it’s freaking amazing! Lasts for ages in the fridge too. My husband and I managed to make it last a whole week (I’m not sure how!) Love how easy it is too.
