Nutella Cheesecake-Mousse

Nutella cheesecake top


It's absolutely no secret that I love Nutella, so when it was requested that I make these cheesecakes again for my boss's birthday last week... Of course I did. It's Nutella and cheesecake. I did take the opportunity to modify the recipe a little bit, by accident that is- I (being a brilliant human being) bought pure cream instead of thickened, which means I made a mousse rather than a cheesecake! It was still delicious regardless and it means I get to present you with two recipes rather than the one. Yes, what you have to do is identical (except for cooling time) for both recipes.


Nutella Mousse
Modified from a recipe on HighWalls Blog
  • 1 packet of Oreos
  • 2 heaped tablespoons of butter, melted
  • 250g cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup Nutella
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 250mL pure* cream
  • various decorating deliciousness
Nutella Cheesecake
Modified from a recipe on HighWalls Blog
  • 1 packet of Oreos
  • 2 heaped tablespoons of butter, melted
  • 250g cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup Nutella
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 250mL thickened* cream
  • various decorating deliciousness
  1. Place Oreos into two bags and using a rolling pin ...pulverise them into crumbs. In a bowl mix the melted butter and Oreos until well combined.
  2. (Depending on the size of your cheesecake dispensing devices) In each of your cheesecake dispensing devices (I used martini glasses) place a heaped tablespoon of Oreo-butter mixture. Compress slightly with your fingers / spoon and place to the side.
  3. In another bowl, mix the cream cheese and Nutella with a spatula until reasonably combined, then beat using an electric mixer until well combined. Add cream and mix until well combined.
  4. Spoon (cheesecake) or use a piping bag (mousse) to evenly distribute mixture between cheesecake dispensing devices.
  5. Refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours (mousse) and 4 hours (cheesecake). Overnight is ideal.
  6. After an hour, add your various decorating deliciousness to the top.
Cheesecake layers


Mine were covered in lightly crushed Malteasers, with 100's and 1,000's in the stem of the martini glass (it was hollow, and trying to fill it with Oreo mix was... not going to look pretty)

*pure cream is "normal" cream, and doesn't contain any thickeners. From my understanding (and research), "thickened" cream in Australia is equivalent to whipping or double cream.

Aaaaand they were delicious. Though just as a heads up, leaving the mousse version out for an hour caused them to ...melt a little bit...

Pattern: No Navi!

It's been a while...  Life's been pretty hectic around here, finally 3/4 way through my prac, so hopefully I can get more pattern making / stitching sometime...  For now, here's a small pattern inspired by this demotivational poster:

23 before 23: 6 month update!

Back in August I posted about 23 things that I wanted to achieve before I hit 23 next year (read about it here). Since we're at the 6 month mark, I thought an update was in store!



Writing this post and reading over my list I'm realising how much I've got to achieve - school holidays now, time to get busy! So far I've achieved...

12. Spend a day at the beach
Check! Was a gorgeous day and both myself and my boyfriend came back without being completely roasted. Considering how pale we both are, that was a surprise.



19. Find a signature makeup look
It only occurred to me the other day that I'd done this - I <3 my winged liner and bright lip.

20. Read 2 "classic" novels
Done and done!
Clearly I've gotten lazy with my book reviewing, haha. I've since read The Great Gatsby, Little Women and am currently marathoning my way through Anna Karenina.

I've noticed it just seems like I'm not a Jane Austen fan but have enjoyed all of the others that I've re…

Pichu Cross Stitch

My first cross stitch creation, created with KG-Chart LE.  It's a Pichu (from Pokemon), and I'm hoping to continue with this Pokemon theme through other cross stitches.  If I get around to this, I'll post a picture when I'm done =)
