  • 15-18 chocolate graham crackers how many you need depends on the size of your pan
  • 1/2 cup chocolate milk or room-temperature coffee
  • 8 ounces (One 8-ounce package) cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup Nutella or other chocolate hazelnut spread
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 8 ounces (One 8-ounce tub) Cool Whip thawed
  • Chocolate curls or miniature chocolate chips for garnish
  • Whole hazelnuts for garnish


  • Line an 8x8" square pan with foil, extending the sides of the foil over the edges of the pan. Mist the foil lightly with cooking spray.
  • Dip the chocolate graham crackers quickly, working one at a time into the chocolate milk. Line them up side by side in the pan, breaking some of the crackers to fit. You should have one even layer. Set aside briefly.
  • In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream together the cream cheese, Nutella, and vanilla extract on medium speed until combined and fluffy, about 1 minute. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the whipped topping until fully incorporated. Spoon 1/4 of the Nutella mixture evenly over the graham crackers.
  • Repeat layers twice more, for a total of three (3) layers. Spoon and spread the remaining Nutella mixture over the top. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least 4-6 hours. Just before cutting into squares, garnish with chocolate curls or miniature chocolate chips and whole hazelnuts.
