Smores Cheesecake is the Perfect Combo of Two Classic Desserts!

This past weekend was my birthday, and of course what kind of cake I want is always a source of heavy reflection and internal debate. My husband is usually pretty good about making a cake for me. I mean, there have been those years where he said, “I thought you were dieting”…which have ended in me murdering him with my mind.

But the longer we’ve been together, he has come to the realization that a cake is a non-negotiable…diet or not. Also, can we just let all men know that our diets are NONE OF THEIR BUSINESS.  I do not ever want my husband reminding me of my diet. Ever. EVER.

ANYHOW!…National S’more Day happens to fall on my birthday, August 10th…ahem.  Which basically is the most perfect coincidence in all the land.  Right? So I decided to take the universe’s cue and make a S’mores Cheesecake.  Because, well…S’mores and also cheesecake.

If you have been reading my site for any length of time, you know that cheesecake is my lover.  I am obsessed. I’ve created all sorts of cheesecake recipes here on my site, most recently CHOCOLATE CHEESECAKE!

And this Smores Cheesecake recipe is the ULTIMATE combo of my favorite summertime treat AND my favorite ALL TIME dessert!

How To Make Smores Cheesecake

Start with an easy graham cracker crust recipe and press that into a springform pan.  Sprinkle two cups of mini marshmallows all over that…

Then heat up some hot fudge sauce and pour that all over the marshmallows…

It’s getting there…

Next go ahead and make your filling.  This recipe doesn’t use sugar, but instead uses sweetened condensed milk.  Not gonna argue with that!

After the cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, eggs and vanilla are mixed, add in some more mini marshmallows and also some mini chocolate chips!

Pour that over your crust…

And bake it until it’s almost done.

At that point sprinkle some more marshmallows on top until they get puffed and slightly golden…

Then here’s the hard part.  You have to let it cool.  I recommend a full overnight. Before you put it in the fridge, loosen the edges of the crust with a knife.

When it’s completely chilled, pull it out of the fridge, and garnish it with graham cracker crumbs, milk chocolate bars and more hot fudge sauce…

Isn’t it beautiful?

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

  1. I made a half version of the Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake Cheesecake for my birthday 2 years ago. TO DIE FOR!!! But instead of making the chocolate cake layer, I made a brownie layer and instead of whipping the chocolate ganache for the icing, I just poured the ganache over the cake. But I did make the peanut butter frosting and piped those little blobs on top of my cake then topped them with Reese’s PB minis. My birthday is next month so I think i’m going to make your S’Mores Cheesecake for my celebration this year. It looks fantastic!

    I love that your husband made you a birthday cake…a fancy one at that! My husband made his first cake ever for my birthday a few years ago. It was not as fancy as the one that you got but I loved it. Husbands baking…yay!

  3. gs

    Wow this looks really nice.Could u please tell me which cream cheese have u used in this recipe? Also can I use yogurt cream cheese without altering the taste? Thanks

    1. Shelly

      I used Philadelphia brand Cream Cheese! I haven’t ever worked with yogurt cream cheeses, so I’d love to hear how yours turns out, if that’s what you use.

  4. Omg I love that you put marshmallows in every layer!! Eek yum!
    Oh and I hate when I am reminded of my self-imposed eating restrictions. When I say “it’s time for a cupcake and froyo” or “don’t forget to have a cake there on my birthday” the LAST thing I want to hear is “Are you sure? Are you going to actually eat that, because you said you weren’t eating that anymore…?” Ummm…that is for ME to judge. GIVE IT TO ME.
    Yeah, anyways! Hooray for birthday weekend!

    Oh.My. A husband who actually BAKES you a cake – doesn’t just pick one up at the bakery… I think you must keep him and make sure he’s infinitely happy! And that’s not just ANY cake either, but a pretty spectacular one.

    I am also a cheesecake lover and I will have to try this one. It sounds fabulous! We are having a family dinner tonight with extended family and I used your fudgy brownies and made them onto Rolo Brownies. What I got from the leftovers in the pot was fabulous and I’m sure they will eat it up, literally. I do wish I had made a cheesecake but there will be other cheesecakes to be had .. such as this one..
    Hope you had a fantastic birthday too!

  6. Julie

    Not to take away from your awesome smores cheesecake, but holy sh*t I can’t believe that cake your husband made!!

    Hope you had a GREAT b-day!

  7. Erica

    OMG, your husband made you that 500 component cake and he is NOT getting a blog feature?!?! That’s a crime! I’m super amazingly impressed with his baking skills, especially because I am deathly afraid to tackle a Sprinklebakes recipe myself! Kudos and well done.

  8. It’s SO beautiful! Multiple birthday cakes are always enjoyed for my birthday. No way around it! And true that lady- diets are none of men’s business! Happy belated ShellY!

  9. I am amazed that your husband conquered that cake! I have been too intimidated to try it for years…maybe THIS year it will be different. Also – s’mores cheesecake?! And your birthday falls on S’MORES DAY?! Talk about fate.

  10. Your husband is amazing!! WOW! I could not even make a cake look that amazing! You have a real winner!!

    Ok now this cheesecake? My kind of cheesecake!!! I am not into the fruity ones all that much, but chocolate and marshmallows?? HECK YES!

  11. how gorgeous is that topping! You are so lucky to have him make that for you, he must love you very much. Sprinkle bakes is genius isn’t she?
    My sister also turned 30 this week too but she requested a macaron cake (aka three tiers of pain). Next time i gonna suggest this cheese cake to her, she loves s’mores!

    Happy late birthday by the way. ^_^
