Nutella Cheesecake Bars

August 29

I am a Nutella fiend and I know I’m not the only one so if you are a fan of the chocolatey goodness from a jar, this is the recipe for you! These little bars have all the flavour and richness of a traditional cheesecake but are ready in half the time! Sliced up, they are perfect for cakes sales, bringing into the office to share or even just keeping all to yourself to gorge on!


  • serves Serves 20
  • time 60 mins


  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Mix together the biscuits with the melted butter in a mixing bowl until combined. Pour the mixture into a 18 x 28 x 5cm high sided baking tin lined with parchment paper and press down until smooth. Place in the oven to bake for approx 15 minutes. Remove and allow to cool.
  2. 2. In a food processor blitz together the cream cheese, eggs, caster sugar and 60ml of the cream until completely smooth. Pour 4/5 of the cream cheese mixture on top of the biscuit base. Add the nutella and remaining cream to the leftover cream cheese mix and blitz until smooth.
  3. 3. Using a spoon blob the nutella mixture over the top of the cream cheese mixture and then using an offset spatula swirl the mixtures together until you have a nice swirling pattern.
  4. 4. Place in the oven to bake for 35 minutes until there is a slight wobble in the center of the tin. Remove and allow to cool before slicing up and serving.
