Th ingredients you’ll need to make these Mini Nutella Cheesecakes

Oreos – you can use any type of similar chocolate cookie.

Butter – I used unsalted butter. When melting your butter, give it about 5 minutes to chill before using.

Heavy cream – this is the type of cream you use for whipping.

Vanilla ExtractAlways use good quality vanilla extract when baking, it makes a huge difference. I have a great recipe here for it if you’d like to try your own!

Cream cheese – make sure the cream cheese is softened.

Powdered sugar – also known as icing sugar

Milk powder – The milk powder used in this recipe is the type that is used to make long life milk and ca be found in the long life milk section of your supermarket. The milk powder is used to make the cheesecake more creamy and to help it set.

Nutella – You can use any brand of chocolate hazelnut spread you like.

Let’s go through each step. Making these Mini Nutella Cheesecakes are easy!

Does it matter what level of fat the milk powder is? In the USA milk powder is often nonfat and I wanted to check if I needed to seek out whole fat.

Dear Nick,
Delicious recipe as usual.
I just wanted to tell you that in your written recipe you left the whipped cream out, the one you prepared at the beginning of this recipe. You say to put it aside and it isn’t mentioned to add it to the nutella mixture as you do in your video.
Thanks for your yummy and beautiful cakes.
Ciao,
Luisa
