No Bake Nutella Almond Cheesecake - Outrageously good and simple to make! Enough said.

Earlier this month, we hosted a Super Bowl party to cheer on our hometown team, the New England Patriots. We had a group of about fourteen people at our house – a mix of kids and adults – and this No Bake Nutella Almond Cheesecake was on the party menu.

Let’s just say….You know you’ve come up with a winning recipe when you see your guests sneaking into the kitchen for more slices of this cheesecake – even during a nail-biting-close football game like this year’s Super Bowl!

No Bake Nutella Almond Cheesecake - Outrageously good and simple to make! Enough said.

This No Bake Nutella Almond Cheesecake has a thick but crispy no bake cookie crust made from raw almonds, almond butter, graham crackers, and melted butter. Then it’s topped with a rich cream cheese, Nutella (see our homemade recipe here) and almond butter filling that is sweet – but not too sweet.

We topped this cheesecake with unsweetened whipped cream – simply piping the cream in a decorative pattern over the top with a large star tip.

Our No Bake Nutella Almond Cheesecake was the hit of our Super Bowl party – and I predict you and your guests will love it too!

  • Yield: 8-10 servings


For the Crust

  • ½ cup raw almonds (1/2 cup after chopped)
  • 1 sleeve graham crackers (9 full crackers)
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter (or any nut butter such as cashew or peanut but almond butter is best. Available in any average supermarket)

For the Filling

  • 2 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 13-ounce jar Nutella, or make our homemade version
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • ½ cup powdered sugar

  • ½ teaspoon almond extract

For the Topping

  2. In the food processor, grind graham crackers to a crumb size. Add to almonds in bowl.
  3. Stir almonds and crackers then add butter and almond butter. Mix to combine.
  4. In a 9 inch spring form pan, press mixture into bottom working a little up the sides (about ¾ of an inch high). Use thumb and index finger to push it against the sides and bottom to make a nice neat crust. Refrigerate for one hour.
