S’mores Cheesecake

This S’mores Cheesecake is a crowd pleasing cheesecake recipe for sure! Creamy cheesecake loaded with all the flavors of your favorite fireside treat!

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?

I was nervous about making this because I’ve never made cheesecake before, but it was DELICIOUS. Recieved lots of compliments on it! This recipe is a keeper.

When you mention dividing the marshmallows it would be helpful to say how much should actually go into the filling. In reading the recipe it would indicate that all marshmallows go into the recipe until you read further and see that 1.5 cups are needed for the top.

I know this comment is wayyyy after the fact, but I was wondering about the marshmallows- after melting them then refrigerating them what is the texture like? Do they stay nice and gooey or become hard as a rock? Thanks!

I just made this smores cheesecake for my husbands birthday and everyone loved it. I thought 3/4 of a cup of butter in the crust was perfect but I did let my butter sit for a little bit after melting it. I almost through out my old 10″ springform pan once I got a new 9″ and I’m glad I didn’t. There is now way it would have all fit in the 9″ pan.

I am making this cheesecake right now, and it is looking very good in the oven. I have never used sweetened condensed milk before, so I am excited to see how it turns out. It looks like it will be great, but I do have one note for future bakers. The 3/4 cup of butter was WAAAAAY to much when I made the crust. I literally pressed the crust into the pan and it was oozing out melted butter. I held it over the sink for a while to let it drain, but next time I would probably only use… Read more »

omg I need to make this!! but I’ll have to buy normal sized marshmallows, we don’t have the small ones in Brazil… I make cheesecake whenever I have the time, I love it! Btw, when making the cheesecake just use a toothpick to check the center of it, if the toothpick comes out clean it’s done 🙂 I always bake it in low heat.

Love the S’mores Cheesecake! However, I believe I’m in a sugar coma and I made an extra large one…do you think it will freeze well???
Thanks!! 😀
