Summer desserts are my thing. I just love coming up with all the No Bake Things — cool, creamy, and no slaving over the oven or stove!

One of my favorite desserts from last summer is this Nutella Brownie Fruit Pizza — it is SO wildly delicious I had to leak the recipe to my taste testers before it even hit the blog last summer. You guys — Nutella and fresh berries is an out of this world combination.

And so here I am with these No Bake Nutella Cheesecake Bars, and a pile of fresh berries because it’s just so darn good!

It’s nearly impossible for me to resist piling all the no-bake desserts with strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. I wait anxiously for strawberry season to hit Manitoba in the summer. And I know we’re a long way off here, but we’re just about at that point where I’m so over the cold and ready for the sunshine 😉

Growing up, we went every summer — multiple times! — with my mom to the U-Pick to pick strawberries. There is nothing like fruits and vegetables gathered straight from the field or the garden.

I love taking my girls now to do the same thing, even though they’re not all that helpful! They’re more into the quality control 😉

Tips and Tricks for Making these No Bake Chocolate Nutella Cheesecake Bars:

  • Adding a bit of melted chocolate to these no bake cheesecake bars helps them to set and slice beautifully. But also, chocolate.
  • I added a little bit of gelatin to the cheesecake mixture because I was a little worried about not getting a clean slice even with the chocolate. You can leave it out if you think that’s weird, but they might not slice quite as cleanly as these ones did here.
  • You can swap the Greek yogurt for an extra block of cream cheese if you prefer — it shouldn’t make a difference in the recipe. I just love adding Greek yogurt for an extra boost of protein (because, hey — it’s chocolate and Nutella).

These bars can easily be frozen and thawed or served frozen — they are perfect either way! And if you need to make them gluten free, simple swap out the cookies with gluten free cookies or skip the crust and be sure to check all ingredient labels to ensure they are gluten free.

Calories 526cal

Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter (melted)
  • cups chocolate baking crumbs (383 grams)
  • ¾ cup chopped chocolate (100 grams)
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon heavy cream (divided)
  • 3 packages light cream cheese (250 grams/8 oz each)
  • ¾ cup Nutella or other chocolate hazelnut spread (200 grams)
  • 1 cup powdered icing sugar (110 grams)
  • Whipped cream and berries for garnish as desired

Instructions

  • Line a 9×13" pan with tin foil or parchment paper if desired. Combine melted butter and chocolate crumbs and press into the bottom of the pan.
  • In a small bowl, combine chocolate and 1 tablespoon cream. Microwave on high for 45 seconds and stir until smooth. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add in Nutella and powdered sugar and beat until combined. Add in cooled chocolate mixture and beat until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, beat cream with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Add to the cream cheese mixture and beat on low until combined.
  • Spread on top of the crust and refrigerate at least 8 hours. Remove from the pan and slice. To help with removal and slicing you can put in the freezer for 1-2 hours before removing from the pan. (You can even serve them partially frozen!).

Notes

Ingredients and Substitutions:
  • Chocolate baking crumbs: you can use graham crackers or crushed oreos if you prefer (no need to remove the icing).
  • Chopped chocolate: I like to use dark chocolate if I have it to balance out the sweetness of the Nutella. Any chocolate will work!
  • Nutella: you can substitute the Nutella for any spread of a similar consistency: peanut butter, cookie butter, etc.

    This is my kind of dessert! A little bit of chocolate, some nutella and fresh berries is the perfect combination. I also love that they are no bake so that I can make them during the summer heat and don’t have to worry about turning on my oven.

    Hi Ashley! You just combined three of my son’s favorite things…cheesecake, nutella and fresh berries! He is 33, loves to cook and bake and he is going to be so excited when I forward this to him! He has one extremely lucky girlfriend!

    I think we’ve been on the same wavelength lately! I’ve been using Nutella and berries together a lot lately too, they’re just so good! These bars look delicious, Ashley. I feel like I could just make no-bake desserts the rest of my life and be happy!
