  • 200g honey nut cornflakes
  • 2 x 400g jars chocolate hazelnut spread
  • 2 x 180g tubs full-fat cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp roasted and chopped hazelnuts



    Grown in Europe and the US, hazelnuts are encased in a smooth, hard brown shell but are most…


  1. Put the cornflakes and half a jar of chocolate hazelnut spread in a bowl and beat to combine – don’t worry about breaking up the cornflakes. Press the mix into the base of a 23cm springform tin.

  2. In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth, then fold in the remaining chocolate hazelnut spread. Smooth onto the cornflake base, wrap tightly in cling film and freeze overnight.

  3. Remove from the freezer 30 mins before serving, or until you can cut it easily with a sharp knife. Serve in slices with hazelnuts sprinkled over. Will keep in the freezer for up to 1 month.

So disappointed. It tasted like it was made with 4 easily identified ingredients with no time spent on it. Would not serve it to guests and my children wondered why there were a load of crunchy nut cornflakes on the bottom. They eat them in a bowl.

So quick and easy to make! And tastes great! Really good cheat if you don't have a lot of time to knock something together.

2 x 400g jars of chocolate hazelnut spread AND 2 x 180g tubs full-fat cream cheese?!!! This should be called heart-attack on a plate! I feel guilty enough if I have 2 teaspoons of chocolate hazelnut spread on 2 slices of bread!

This is THE most delicious and decadent dessert. It is so quick and simple to make and ideal to share after a simple, light meal. It IS rich, so I served it with a dish of unsweetened raspberries (you could use a mix of summer fruit) and everyone came back for more. I used Lidl's own Cream Cheese, and their own version of Nutella, and it worked a treat. It is impressive.

Delicious! Loved the cornflake base. So easy and quick to make too! My daughter doesn't like hazlenuts so I suggested she make it using one of the other varieties of chocolate spread available in the supermarkets. I used two large tubs of cream cheese to make more filling and it turned out beautifully.

I did not like this cheesecake at all, fan though I am of Nutella. A little goes a long way...I used a gingerbread biscuit base (based on reviews) which was probably a mistake..the taste of ginger and nutella don't really go together for me. All together too dense and a waste of nutella! sorry!

So simple, so tasty, so many calories but who cares. Great to keep in freezer for mid-week guests of for a sweet indulgence after a hard day at work. Will make again definitely.

Need these the other weekend, very simple and impressive, everyone loved it. It is however very rich. I will certainly make this one again, but I think I will try it with a ginger biscuit base, as I imagine it will compliment it well.

Why do you have to freeze it? can it not just be chilled?

Thanks for your question. This dessert is intended to be frozen for the right set and texture. We'd recommend freezing.

Thanks for your question. We would recommend freezing this overnight but if you want to make it in the day, do so in the morning and take it out in the evening.
