Units Scale
  • 4-8 crunchy chocolate chip cookies such as Chips Ahoy
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup nutella
  • 8 ounces frozen whipped topping, thawed*
  • Whipped cream for topping
  • Sprinkles, chopped hazelnuts, or chocolate shavings for garnish, optional


  1. We're keeping it extra simple here, and instead of making a graham cracker crust, simply crush up a few crunchy chocolate chip cookies, and create a layer of crumbs in the bottom of each cup or dish you're using to build your parfaits. We're going to come back and do a second layer later, so save some cookies for round two. I literally just broke them up with my hands right into the cup. Make it easy on yourself, friends.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese and nutella with an electric mixer until smooth. Now ditch your mixer and switch over to a rubber spatula. Gently fold in your whipped topping until you're pretty much streak free. It doesn't have to be perfect.
  3. Divide your cream cheese mixture between your four glasses. If you're layering, here's where you'd add more cookie and then another layer of nutella cheesecake mixture. Finally, top the whole thing off with a fluffy cloud of whipped cream and any extra topping you might like.


  • If you can't get Cool Whip or another frozen whipped topping where you live, look for a packet of powdered Dream Topping or Dream Whip and prepare this according to packet instructions.
