nutella-swirled cappuccino cheesecake bars
Oh me oh my oh YUM.
That’s what I always say to myself when I take a bite of one of these delicious Nutella-swirled cappuccino cheesecake bars.
You read that right: Nutella. Plus cappuccino. Plus cheesecake. In bar form, with a chocolate cookie crust. Glory glory, hooray!, huzzah!, oh me oh my oh YUM.
Remember that one time I told you about a salted caramel peanut butter cream pie and Liberté’s new caramel-flavored yogurt? Welllll, now is the time when I tell you that they also are about to come out with a cappuccino-flavored yogurt, which only further reenforces my plans to camp outside the grocery store until both yogurts are in stock. WHO’S WITH ME? (For extra motivation, see above, Nutella-swirled cappuccino cheesecake bars.)
Liberté’s Méditerranée Cappuccino Yogurt may be the best yogurt I’ve ever tasted — truly. Well, besides the caramel-flavored yogurt, maybe. I’ll have to eat at least a dozen of each to decide for sure which is my favorite. And then I’ll have to eat no less than three slices of pie and three of these bars to decide which dessert is my favorite. It’s going to be TOUGH.
But more about that yogurt. It’s smooth and decadent and indulgent and made just with what’s necessary to create a delicious yogurt-y nirvana, like whole milk, cream, cane sugar, yogurt cultures and coffee extract. It tastes almost like a tangy latte that you can eat with a spoon. And combined with chocolate, hazelnut and cheesecake flavors, well, the end result is just about one of the best things to come out of my kitchen.
And it’s also best that you double the batch of these lest you want to run out of them in, like, a day (not that I have any firsthand experience with this. Ahem).
In conclusion: Dream a little dream of Nutella, cappuccino yogurt and cheesecake until later this summer when the yogurt arrives in stores. Seek out said yogurt and buy a million containers. Make these bars, and snack on the extra yogurt while doing so. Repeat.
Liberté Méditerranée Cappuccino Yogurt will be arriving in stores later summer. Here is a link to Liberté’s product locator to find a retailer near you: http://liberteusa.com/Product-Locator

Disclosure: I received compensation and sample yogurts from Liberté for recipe development purposes. All opinions are my own.
These are the prettiest swirled brownies! And those flavors sound perfect together. Man oh man…I have such a list of things to make when (if) our grocery store finally gets the goods! 🙂
I may or may not have stood in the yogurt section in Whole Foods for a good ten minutes the other day trying to find these flavors. Now DEPRESSED that they’re not out yet. Because I want these SO TERRIBLY!
Yes please! Nutella + cappuccino sound like the perfect combination! I can’t wait to dig in!!
This type of yoghurt sounds like my dream breakfast food! I am sucker for caffeine, so you pairing it with a baked Nutella cheesecake? Literally craving it right now at mid night
Nutella, cappuccino yogurt and cheesecake.. get outta here.. This looks amazing..
So not cool these yogurts are not out yet. It’s going to be dangerous when they come out.
Wow, this is just an utterly good looking bars and so sinful. Love the swirl on top, too with loads of cappucino in it. This is a mortal sin that I am willing to risk. Thanks you for this wonderful recipe, Stephanie.
I’ve never wanted anything MORE!!!
Goodness, I don’t know which part I’m more excited for, the cappuccino, nutella, or cheesecake ha these look ridic!
Oh me oh my oh Holy freaking fantastic Batman!!
These are just awesome and totally my kind of cheesecake!
I couldn’t get over the Nutella part, but now seeing the recipe… there’s also cream cheese?? Oh boy!!!! Cappuccino yogurt, YUM!
Wow you did a great job swirling! Laughing here. I am being silly, but it really is marbled nicely. Makes you want to have a piece even before you know what it is.
And it’s a winner flavor combo wise!
Nutella AND coffee?! Those are probably my two favorite things ever. These cheesecake bars look just amazing!
Wow, those look amazing, and I don’t even like Nutella, although I might not mind it in this form! I think the cappuccino part wins me over!
I must get my hot little hands on a (17,000) container(s) of that cappuccino yogurt! THese cheesecake bars? Are you kidding me? They look so flavorful and addicting, and I can’t believe how few ingredients the recipe calls for. I’ve got no excuses…I need to make these as soon as humanley possible

You had me at Nutella. That basically seals the deal for me on anything. These look FAB!

This combo is out of this world. How’d you get them so perfectly swirled? Beauteous!
Ok, even without looking at the pictures, I officialy announce that the name of this cake is the most delicious and gorgeous thing I’ve ever heard!
Oh my, these bars look amazing and combine two of my favorite flavors–coffee and cheesecake! A must try.
hi, made your beautiful cheesecake bars but one question, was there any sort of additional sweetener inadvertently omitted from the cheesecake part? i for one do not enjoy overly sweetened desserts, but these seemed like they really needed some sweetness. thanks!
Lauren — Hi there! Did you use the Liberte brand of yogurt? That should give it just the right amount of sweetness to the cheesecake filling. Otherwise, you could add a couple of tablespoons of sugar to the filling, if you’d like!
What if i don’t have cappucino yoghurt? 🙁
Hi! I’m absolutely LOVING this recipe, but the only problem is I can’t find cappuccino yoghurt ANYWHERE. I really want to make these because I love nutella, I love coffee and I love cheesecake. Its the PERFECT hybrid. what can I do to substitute the cappuccino yoghurt? Could I make a shot of espresso and mix it into greek yoghurt? (I’m slightly desperate here, because your photos and just the idea of them make me so excited, oops.)
Thank you in advance for any substitutes (:
Jess — So sorry you can’t find it! I’ve never made these bars without the cappuccino yogurt so I can’t say for sure what would make for a good substitute, but I do think your idea of mixing espresso into regular yogurt (not Greek, either plain or vanilla) could work. If it does, let me know! Good luck!
