No-Bake Kinder Bueno Cheesecake!

*This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure for more details!*

A Buttery Biscuit Base, Kinder Chocolate & Kinder Bueno Filling, Whipped Cream, Melted Chocolate, and even more Kinder Bueno! The PERFECT No-Bake Kinder Bueno Cheesecake!

So, I knew this recipe had to happen soon. I have had SO MANY REQUESTS for this I can’t actually count them anymore! I used to refer people to my Ferrero Rocher & Nutella No-Bake Cheesecake, because Ferrero and Kinder are actually quite similar nut wise, and flavour wise, so its easy enough to swap out the Ferrero Rocher, and put in the Kinder Bueno.

HOWEVER, after using the Kids Kinder Chocolate bars you can buy in my Kinder Bueno Cupcakes for the buttercream, I knew melting them down and flavouring a cheesecake mix would work as well! Honestly, it makes it a completely different taste to just regular Milk or Dark Chocolate!!

I went for my usual style of No-Bake Cheesecake as they’re oh so popular still, and they always work for me. A similar style to my No-Bake Terry’s Chocolate Orange Cheesecake, I used a Digestive biscuit base (use any biscuit you like really, but if its a filled biscuit like an Oreo, reduce the butter to 125g) and then topped it with the creamy and delicious filling.

A mix of Full-Fat Cream Cheese, Icing Sugar, Double Cream, and Vanilla is the perfect vanilla cheesecake; but adding in the Melted Kinder Chocolate gives it a light but delicious hint of a flavour of Kinder Chocolate. Folding through the Kinder Bueno was just heavenly.

You can of course use normal Milk Chocolate in the Kinder Chocolates place if you wished, but I love the flavour of the Kinder Chocolate. It does cool quite a bit quicker compared to normal chocolate, so I only waited about a minute before I poured it into my Cream Cheese mixture. You don’t need it to be stone cold (and therefore solid) by any means, but it just can’t be fresh out of the microwave hot!

I made a Video for this recipe on my Youtube channel, and I always have to speed up my videos (Kinda like those Tasty ones you see on Facebook?) as you can only watch sooo much of whisking a mixture. However, you can see the order in which I add the ingredients, and that I use a stand mixer and the whisk attachment.

If you are using a Hand Whisk instead of a stand mixer, try not to whisk it tooooo fast as the surface area in which its whisking is smaller, so it can be more likely to split! Stay patient, and you’ll have a delicious pud! I wouldn’t really recommend whisking by hand, as you arm is going to probably fall off by the end of it, and I don’t think you would be able to get it thick enough!

Yes, the Kinder Bueno in the middle goes ever so slightly soft after its been sat in the cheesecake mix for a while, but it’s not the end of the world. It’s there for flavour, but if you don’t want to use them in the middle then you don’t have to! It’s optional. I really hope you enjoy this recipe! x

Biscuit Base
  • 300 g Digestives
  • 150 g Unsalted Butter/Stork (melted)
Cheesecake Filling
  • 500 g Full Fat Cream Cheese
  • 100 g Icing Sugar
  • 300 ml Double Cream
  • 250 g Kinder Chocolate
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 13 Individual Kinder Bueno Bars (chopped)
  • 150 ml Double Cream
  • 2 tbsp Icing Sugar
  • 3 Individual Kinder Bueno Bars (chopped)
  • 50 g Chocolate (melted)
  • Sprinkles
To make the Cheesecake Base
  1. Melt the butter in the microwave on short bursts on in a small pan over a medium heat – Blitz the biscuits in a food processor to a small crumb, add the melted butter, and pulse a few times until it is combined well. 

  2. Tip into a 8″/20cm Deep Springform Tin and press down firmly – chill in the refrigerator whilst you do the rest!

To make the Cheesecake Filling
  1. Melt the Kinder Chocolate in the microwave in short bursts until fully melted – leave to cool slightly whilst doing the rest.

  2. With an electric mixer (I used my KitchenAid) Whisk the Cream Cheese, Icing sugar and Vanilla until combined. Pour in the melted Kinder Chocolate and whisk again till smooth.

  3. Pour in the liquid double cream and continue to whip the mixture until it is starting to thicken a lot like a Mousse does (I use speed 6/10 on my KitchenAid)! It will hold it self completely when finished whipping – It won’t take too long as the chocolate will harden quickly and cause it to thicken.

  4. Chop up the Kinder Bueno Bars and fold through the mixture – Pour the mix on to the biscuit base, smooth over, cover, and chill in the fridge for at least 5-6 hours hours or preferably overnight.

To decorate the Cheesecake
  1. Remove the cheesecake from the tin, and decorate by drizzling over some melted chocolate, some whipped up cream (double cream + icing sugar), a piece of Kinder Bueno for each slice, and some chocolate sprinkles!

Recipe Notes
  • ** I used 2 x 4 pack of Kinder Buenos for this. Each 4Pack contains 8 individual bars, as there is 2 in each. I used 3 for the topping, and the other 13 for the inside of the cheesecake! I used these Kinder Chocolate Bars for reference, for the filling of the cheesecake!
  • If it looks like your cheesecake isn’t setting, or its a but sloppy, or you’re even not sure.. try it anyway. Try to set the mix anyway! If it still doesn’t set, freeze it and have an Ice Cream Cheesecake!
  • I recommend using a 8″/20cm Deep Springform Tin in this recipe!
  • always set my cheesecakes in the fridge overnight otherwise they risk being a little runny still and slipping off the biscuit base but if you want to risk it then go for it!
  • This Cheesecake will last covered in the fridge for 3 days!

    Hi Jane,

    I made this tonight but the mixture just tasted of cream cheese 🙁 is there anything I can do in the future to stop the cream cheese from overpowering with a tangy taste ? Thanks

    • Jane's Patisserie
      January 27, 2020 at 9:43 pm

      Personal taste is difficult, as what you make thing is cheesy I might not. It also depends on the brand you use – mascarpone is sweeter, less ‘tangy’.

    Hi! I made your back to basic vanilla cheesecake I’m not sure if i whipped or over whipped though! Or could of been too hot in the room as the sides were melting whilst i decorated it, I’ve popped it back in the fridge. Do you think it will firm back up? X

    • Jane's Patisserie
      January 22, 2020 at 8:34 pm

      It’s probably a little under-whipped and the warmth – it’ll be absolutely fine though I’m sure!

    Hi Jane – I’ve just made your chocolate orange loaf cake and this cheesecake tonight. The cheesecake is in the fridge to set and I plan to decorate tomorrow evening. How would I know if it’s potentially not going to set can I ask? It felt just a little runnier than I expected but still needed a spatula into the cheesecake tin so not completely pourable :/

    Thank you

    • Jane's Patisserie
      October 9, 2019 at 9:11 pm

      Hiya – yeah it would. A 9″ tin is roughly 1/3 bigger in volume, so it would be quite a bit thinner! Otherwise – no difference.

    Would it work if I put some chopped hazelnuts in the cheesecake mix? For extra crunch. Or am I better off adding to the base?

    Hi, I love this recipe! I’ve just made it today for tomorrow!

    You mentioned sometimes the cheesecake being slippery. I used to have that issue. Sometimes it was from over whisking the double cream. But I also always had that trouble when I used Icing sugar. I always get excellent results using Caster sugar instead. It’s also not quite as sweet (so you get richer/smoother chocolate and stronger citrus flavours).

      I’m not 100% sure if I understand – but this cheesecake lasts for three days in the fridge. You can freeze it, but fresh is best. You must set in the fridge and then freeze for up to a month.

      You will have a plain cheesecake with chunks of kinder in. I would 100% recommend melting it for the best flavour in this cheesecake!

    • Jane's Patisserie
      February 9, 2018 at 7:42 am

      It might be that your chocolate is too hot. If you are struggling, whip the cream separately and fold through, and also make the chocolate slightly cooler. Also, if using lower fat ingredients that can contribute!

    Hi Jane!
    I made this today, it was absolutely delicious! My family loved it!
    Instead of a big cheesecake, I decided to make it into mini cheesecakes, like your mini egg nest recipe. I used muffin cases, as you suggest there, but found that the cheesecake mixture spread out in the cases and the cakes were very top-heavy. Any suggestions?

    • Jane's Patisserie

      Double cream is our fattiest liquid cream that you whip up. In America it’s considered heavy cream for example.

    • Jane's Patisserie
      June 22, 2017 at 10:53 pm

      No, as you whip the cream yourself with the icing sugar it will be fine. You must whip it yourself and not use pre whipped cream.

    Hi Jane, have tried this flavour and the caramac so far. Not sure if I’m doing it correctly. They set perfectly fine but the fillings don’t taste of the Bueno or caramac. They taste of normal filling. Is this what she supposed to happen? I stick to your recipe. Also when I melt the kinder/caramac when I add to the the filling it goes sort of hard with lumpy bits. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    • Jane's Patisserie
      June 17, 2017 at 2:01 pm

      If it’s gone hard and lumpy it’s seized which means it won’t have its full flavour no, as it’s reverted back to a solid. Try putting it in after cooling it for less time and it should be fine. It might be that it’s slightly too cool and then the other ingredients harden them again.

  • Sana
    June 13, 2017 at 3:39 pm

    I made this cheesecake. It was delicious but i had a problem.
    The base was sooo hard
    I used 300 g biscuits and 150 g butter
    Another question, can i add some gelatin for cheesecake filling to have a better shape and if i can how much should i add?

    • Jane's Patisserie
      June 13, 2017 at 4:26 pm

      Hiya! It’s a biscuit base so its meant to be solid – its a standard ratio of ingredients. And you can if you wish, but I’m not sure for the amounts as I don’t use it! ?

    Dear Jane,
    I have a small bakery and would love to add a cheesecake with kinder chocolate and a Biscoff bottom crust or in a cheesecake recipe. My question is do you have any recipe for a baked cheesecake? The no bake cheesecakes are wonderful in a home environment but will not stand up for any period of time as we would need a cheesecake to do.
    All of your creations are so beautiful and mouth watering and I am praying that I will be able to offer some form of any of them in my bakery.
    Thanks for your time and attention.

    • Jane's Patisserie

    The first time I made this it turned out fantastic but since then I’ve had some issues with it not setting completely. Is this likely due to under whisking after adding the double cream? Also is it possible to over whisk at all?


    • Jane's Patisserie
      April 29, 2017 at 7:50 pm

      Hiya! Yes often its purely from it not being quite thick enough. If its because its over whipped it would be lumpy and almost split? x

    • Jane's Patisserie
      December 15, 2016 at 11:45 am

      I just chop each of the pieces up as it’ll break down a bit more when you mix it in, and they do go slightly soft but they’re there for the flavour more than anything.
