A couple of weeks ago, I attempted the no-bake Nutella cheesecake recipe from Rasa Malaysia. The only thing I didn’t add was the nuts because I couldn’t find any in the supermarket at the time. While I generally liked the taste of how the cheesecake turned out, I found it a little too Nutella-ish and not cheesy enough. Yes, to me, there’s such a thing as too Nutella-ish. Haha…
I had a gathering with some friends yesterday and decided to use the opportunity to make the cheesecake again, only this time, I tweaked the recipe to suit my taste.
So here it is, my version of no-bake Nutella cheesecake:
20 pieces of digestive biscuits
125g soft unsalted butter
13-oz Nutella (that’s basically a small jar of Nutella)
750g cream cheese (at room temperature)
½ cup icing sugar (sifted)
The gathering with my friends was on Monday, and I made the cheesecake on Sunday, so the cheesecake was chilled in the fridge overnight.
I definitely like this new version better because the extra layer of cream cheese balanced the Nutella better.
Of course, the way I tweaked the recipe was to suit my own taste, so others may or may not like my version.
I must say though, that I am loving no-bake recipes right now. When I have a young baby and a preschooler, I don’t always have a lot of time in the kitchen and no-bake recipes give me alternatives when I want to make dessert.
Someone recently shared a whole list of no-bake cheesecake recipes and I’m definitely going to try some of them.
