Nico Norena's Kinder Cheesecake Recipe - Exclusive

Food blogger and self-trained cook and baker Nico Norena has a fool-proof answer to your ever-unquenchable sweet tooth. The Forbes 30 Under 30 honoree's desserts are not only unbearably mouth-watering (his social studio is known as The Succulent Bite, after all), but they're also almost too-good-to-be-true easy.

If you're one of his 1.6 million followers on Facebook or Instagram, maybe you've already eyeballed his cheesecakes on his eye-catching reels, wondering if, in fact, they're as effortlessly achievable as they look on video. We're here to confirm that they are. We've exclusively got his Kinder cheesecake recipe, and we dare you to try it out for yourself. It's not only no-bake (!), but it's also, as Norena once told Mashed in an exclusive interview, a stand-out favorite when he was taste-testing among local baking professionals for his recently published cookbook. Say goodbye to painful, 6 to 8-hour bake times and overnight chills. Say hello to rich, silky, Kinder chocolate-infused, and deliciously sweet succulence.
