Y’all listen to me now.
I know that I often say I love an easy recipe. But this time, seriously, this time, this is so incredibly easy that my 7 year old could make it himself.
3 ingredients and 10 minutes of your time.
THAT. IS. IT.
So, a little back story. I was checking into how to make a New York Style cheesecake for my hubby, because he LOVES cheesecake as much as he loves this raspberry dessert. So, because my mama always said that the quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, I set out to see what all I would need for cheesecake making.
Considering I got some springform type pans for Christmas, I figured I should make hubby something he really loves.
So, as I’m tooling around Pinterest I know for sure that I want to add Nutella to this cheesecake. Did you know how many people had this same idea?! Good Gravy y’all, there is like a 1,000 recipes for this kind of stuff…
Anyway, I run across a no bake type of recipe (my favorite kind!) and realize that I really want something close to the original type of New York style cheesecake. You know, just cheesecake, no crust, just smooth, creamy goodness.
So, I decided that I would use my ramekins that I just got the other day (they were on sale, I promise!).
After I grabbed my ingredients, mixed everything in the Kitchen Aid, the most time I spent actually making this dessert was the time I had to take to put it into the ramekins. Seriously.
Serve this at your next dinner party, smooth out the tops if you like, and you will be the talk of the town!
- 2 (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese – room temperature
- 1 (13 ounce) container of Nutella
- 2/3 cup of powered sugar
** The cream cheese MUST be at room temperature, no cheating! Otherwise the creaminess will be a no go. The cream cheese must be completely soft for this to work correctly. **
Put your cream cheese into the stand mixer and blend until creamy. Add in your Nutella, scrapping the sides of the jar to get every last bit, and blend until mixed well. Make sure to scrap the sides of the mixer so that everything gets mixed in, otherwise you will have some spots from the cream cheese.
Add in your powered sugar and after it is mixed well, let it blend for at least a minute or two so that extra air gets in the mixture.
Using a scrapper, put this decedent mixture into your waiting little dishes, or ramekins, filling them completely.
Put the dishes in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, so that it will solidify. Once the 2 hours are up, grab a spoon and enjoy!
This decedent dessert is now on our MUST MAKE list and once you try it you will understand why!
The smoothness. The creaminess. The Oh My Gracious, roll your eyes, deliciousness.
It’s like mousse. No, it’s like cheesecake. No, it’s like…
Seriously, you will thank me!
Enjoy and let me know your thoughts once you make this recipe.
I look forward to sharing my next recipe soon, so stay tuned.
In His Grace.
