Nutella Cheesecake Mousse

12.22.2013

If you know much about me, then you know cheesecake is one of my most favorite foods, ever (that’s right, I said most favorite. Not proper, but for these it’s just so right)! It really doesn’t get much better, so when I can create something that tastes exactly like cheesecake without having to bake it then chill it for eight hours then I’m pretty ecstatic. Don’t get me wrong, I adore baked cheesecakes, but sometimes I don’t have the time nor patience that they take. That is where these come in. Cheesecake mousse. They contains no eggs (like many mousse recipes do) so it doesn’t require any cooking on the stove top either. It’s just simple, irresistibly silky smooth and luscious, and amazingly fluffy mousse, at it’s finest. Then you add Nutella into the mix (literally :) and people what are you waiting for? These are calling your name! Simply put, these are what dreams are made of. Cheesecake and Nutella combined into one easy to make dessert that will leave you begging for more. Enjoy!

Nutella Cheesecake Mousse

4 from 1 vote

Yield: 5 - 6 servings

Ingredients

Crust

  • 12 Oreos (leave in cream filling. Don't use Double Stuf), finely crushed
  • 2 Tbsp butter , melted

Mousse

  • 1 1/3 cups heavy cream
  • 4 Tbsp granulated sugar , divided
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 8 oz cream cheese , softened
  • 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp Nutella
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Topping

  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • Toasted , chopped hazelnuts (optional)
  • Chocolate shavings or sprinkles (optional)

Instructions

  1. For the crust:
  2. In a bowl, using a fork, blend together crushed Oreo's and melted butter until evenly coated (alternately, I just chopped the Oreos into fine crumbs in the food processor then poured the butter and and blended, scraping down sides of processor once). Divide crust mixture among 5 - 6 glass cups or dessert cups. Gently press into an even layer. Set aside in refrigerator while preparing mousse.
  3. For the mousse:
  4. In a mixing bowl, using an electric hand mixer, whip 1 1/3 cups heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add in 3 Tbsp granulated sugar and 1 Tbsp cocoa powder and whip until stiff peaks form. In a separate mixing bowl, using electric hand mixer, whip cream cheese and 1 Tbsp sugar until very smooth and fluffy. Add in Nutella and vanilla and whip until well blended and fluffy. Fold half of the whipped cream mixture into cream cheese mixture and fold until slightly combined, then add remaining half and fold just until no streaks remain. Transfer mixture to a large piping bag (you can also just spoon it into cups or use freezer Ziploc bags and cut corner, if you don't have piping bags). Remove cups from refrigerator and pipe mousse over crust in each cup, then transfer to refrigerator and chill 1 hour (or up to 12 hours).
  5. For the topping:
  6. In a mixing bowl, using an electric hand mixer, whip 2/3 cup heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add in 1 1/2 Tbsp granulated sugar and whip until stiff peaks form. Transfer to a piping bag and pipe over tops of mousse. Serve garnished with chopped hazelnuts and chocolate shavings if desired.

  • Rosie: It was easy to make and delicious! Not a powerful hazelnut flavor more decadent chocolate. November 24, 2017 at 10:04am Reply

  • Lily: Delicious recipe, definitely enjoyed it. I did think the consistency was alittle too thick and sweet, so i whipped up some heavy cream and added it after the fact which I think helped make it more light and fluffy. I do recommend for anyone who doesn’t love super sweet stuff. July 27, 2017 at 7:19pm Reply

  • Remy: Hiii!
    This sounds delicious! Can’t wait to try it…just wondering if you can tell me how firm it is when set? Hoping to use the recipe for a layer cake!
    Thanks a bunch :) February 5, 2017 at 12:00am Reply

  • Kristin H: I’ve tried three of your cheesecake mousses now, and this one is my family’s favorite. (I haven’t decided which one is my favorite, because they’re all divine.) My boys are pretty picky, but they all really liked it! I doubled the recipe, and I had to make a triple batch of the crumbs. This is definitely another keeper! September 3, 2016 at 7:13pm Reply
