Instant Pot Nutella Cheesecake FAQs

Can you freeze Nutella cheesecake?

Yes. Cook and cool your cheesecake in the fridge. Then, wrap it in 2 layers of foil, label the foil with a permanent marker, and freeze up to 3 months. 

You can also slice up your cheesecake and freeze it in individual slices. That way, you can have a chocolaty sweet treat anytime the craving hits.

Are cheesecakes hard to make?

No. Cheesecakes are not hard to make, but they do have quite a few steps. If you are new to making cheesecake, set aside at least an hour to prepare the batter and get it ready for cooking. That way, you won’t feel stressed.

How do you know a cheesecake is done?

Give it a little jiggle! Your cheesecake is done when it is still wiggly in the center, but set around the edges. If it is wiggling around the edges, it is not quite ready and you will need to add a few minutes of cooking time. 

The center of the cheesecake will firm up as it cools in the fridge. That’s why your cheesecake is not actually done and ready to eat until it has been chilled. It’s all a part of the process!
