Life has been a little crazy lately! The kids have been sick, we’ve had family in town, and we just found out we’re moving to Washington D.C. next month!! With so much going on, I haven’t had much time to bake… or do much of anything for that matter. These no-bake Nutella brownie cheesecakes were my last minute attempt at making dessert for our family, and you know what? We loved them!

Here’s how we made them:

I grabbed some leftover brownies (crushed Oreos would work too), diced them up and gently pressed them into the bottom of 6 glass jars. P.S. I love my tulip Weck jars for individual treats, they’re about 8 ounces each (which is the perfect size – and they come with lids)! Then I broke out my hand mixer and whipped up the 5-ingredient filling.

We had homemade Nutella leftover, so I used up the rest of that. You know, in case you’re wondering why the filling looks a bit speckled. If you prefer dessert on the sweeter side, you may want to add a tablespoon or two of powdered sugar, but I really loved it just the way it was. It’s hard for me to admit, but my sweet tooth isn’t so sweet anymore!

Using a ziplock bag or a decorating bag, pipe the filling into each jar. For a firm texture, transfer the jars to the refrigerator for an hour before serving. This is what I did, but you can also serve them right away if you prefer a lighter, mousse-like texture. Placed halved strawberries on top of the filling, then add a generous amount of whipped cream on top.
