Nutella-Strawberry Cheesecake Bites

Well, hello National Cheesecake Day!  I'm not usually up on all the kinda-random food holidays that exist, but a day dedicated to creamy cheesecake deliciousness?  That's one I can get behind!  I certainly  love a great cheesecake.  How about you?

My absolute favorite cheesecake is our family's go-to Thanksgiving dessert, creamy Pumpkin Cheesecake.  It's smooth, cinnamon-laced pumpkin deliciousness is divine.

But what if for whatever reason, ...
... {like you're worried you'll gobble up the whole thing in a matter of just a few short days, perhaps?} ... you don't want to bake a whole cheesecake?  Or you just want a tiny  bite of cheesecake to satisfy that cheesecake sweet tooth?

Well, these Nutella-Strawberry Cheesecake Bites are a perfect plan!

Topped with a quick-and-easy 3-ingredient creamy Nutella cheesecake mixture, Nutella-Strawberry Cheesecake Bites make a fabulous little-bite dessert, party-platter treat, or afternoon snack.  Or hey, I wouldn't be opposed to considering them breakfast food, too.

Nutella-Strawberry Cheesecake Bites

Let's see ... fruit, dairy, and Nutella spread ... that should count for breakfast food, right?

Not only are Nutella-Strawberry Cheesecake Bites versatile little bites of choclatey-cheesecake deliciousness, they're really easy to whip up, too.

Simply cut some large strawberries in half.  I like to leave the leaf cap on and just cut right through it ... because it looks pretty, and the leaves act as a little 'handle' to hold onto when picking up and eating these tasty little bites.

Place the strawberry halves, cut-side-up, on a platter.  If the berry halves don't sit level, cut a teeny tiny slice from the rounded platter-side of the strawberry to give it a flat spot to sit upon.

Making Nutella-Strawberry Cheesecake Bites

Pipe on a bit of Nutella-cream cheese mixture, and sprinkle on a few chopped hazelnuts or slivered almonds if you'd like.

Then enjoy your little Nutella-Strawberry Cheesecake Bites dessert!  Or snack.  Or ... dare we say ... breakfast?

(Printable recipe)
  • 10 large strawberries
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 2 T. Nutella chocolate-hazelnut spread
  • pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 T. chopped hazelnuts or chopped slivered almonds
  1. Place softened cream cheese, Nutella, and cinnamon in a small bowl; stir until well combined and smooth. Chill for about 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. While cream cheese mixture chills, rinse strawberries and pat dry with paper towels. Leaving leaves on, slice each strawberry in half lengthwise and set aside on a plate or serving platter with the cut side up. {If strawberry halves do not sit level on the platter, cut a very tiny slice from the rounded side of the berry half to create a flat spot for it to sit upon.}
  3. Spoon cream cheese mixture into a piping bag fitted with a large star tip. {If you don't have a piping bag, use a zip-top baggie. Cut one of the bottom corners of the bag and use it to pipe through.} Pipe mixture onto each of the strawberry halves. Sprinkle with chopped hazelnuts or almonds.
  4. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to about 3 hours.
