No Bake Nutella Almond Cheesecake

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!
