S'more Cheesecake

All the classic campfire s'more flavors baked into a decadent cheesecake – that's easy to make!

Ingredients

GOLDEN GRAHAMS CRUST

1 1/2
cups crushed Golden Grahams™ cereal (or graham crackers)
3
tablespoons sugar
6
tablespoons melted unsalted butter
1
pinch salt

FILLING

10
ounces milk chocolate, melted
16
ounces cream cheese
3/4
cup sugar
1
pinch salt
3/4
cup heavy cream
3
large eggs

MARSHMALLOW TOPPING

1
cup sugar
2
large egg whites
1
teaspoon cream of tartar
1
pinch salt
12
large marshmallows, cut into quarters
1/2
teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  • 1 Pulse Golden Graham cereal™ or graham crackers in a food processor until they are in a coarse meal. Then stir with other crust ingredients.
  • 2 Pack crust into a springform pan. Use a measuring cup to pack it in to make sure the crust is evenly packed around the edges.
  • 3 Bake the crust at 350°F for 12 minutes. Then let cool.
  • 4 Meanwhile, combine cream cheese, sugar, and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl with a hand mixer or in the bowl for a stand mixer. Combine until smooth.
  • 5 Add eggs to the filling and stir to combine. Then stir in melted, but not hot chocolate. I recommend just melting the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second bursts, stirring after each burst.
  • 6 Finally, add heavy cream and mix well until mixture is smooth.
  • 7 Pour mixture into crust and bake at 325°F for 55-60 minutes until just set.
  • 8 Turn off your oven, crack the oven door, and let the cheesecake cool slowly in the oven for an hour.
  • 9 Remove cheesecake and transfer to fridge to cool completely. Let it cool for at least 3-4 hours.
  • 10 Meanwhile, add all the topping ingredients to a large mixing bowl except for the marshmallows. Heat the bowl over a pot of boiling water and whisk the ingredients until they are well combined and starting to turn silky.
  • 11 Cut marshmallows into quarters and add them to the topping. Let them melt slowly and whisk constantly as they melt.
  • 12 Once the marshmallows are melted, beat the topping furiously for 4-5 minutes until the mixture holds stiff peaks.
  • 13 Remove the cheesecake from the springform pan and top with the marshmallow topping. Work quickly at this point or the topping will solidify.
  • 14 Turn your broiler on high and broil the cheesecake for 60-90 seconds until the topping is just starting to brown. Be careful as it will burn quickly.
  • 15 Remove cheesecake once the topping is lightly browned and let it cool for a minute. Then slice and serve!

S’more Cheesecake

As prepared by Macheesmo,

Seriously, who doesn’t love a good s’more?


They’re one of the best things on the planet. But: There are two issues. First, you need a fire. Second, they are messy.

Turns out that the s’more ingredients (graham crackers/chocolate/marshmallows) go equally well together in my S’more Cheesecake. It’s actually an easy cheesecake to make since it doesn’t require any fancy water baths.

Most importantly, anyone with a broiler in their oven can make the marshmallow topping perfectly toasted!

 

Golden Grahams crust in food processor

This recipe starts with the crust and while you could use normal graham crackers, I used Golden Graham cereal for this version. It worked great and is actually a little easier to pulse into crumbs.

 

Packing crust in pan

Just mix the crushed cereal with melted butter, sugar, and a pinch of salt and then pack it evenly into a springform pan. I like to use a measuring cup to make sure it’s evenly packed around the edges.

 

Bake this at 350 degrees F for 12 minutes so the crust solidifies. Meanwhile, mix together the filling ingredients.

Like I said, this is a very easy cheesecake filling. You can use either a hand mixer or a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Start by mixing together the cream cheese, sugar, and pinch of salt. Then add in the melted (but cooled) chocolate, eggs, and cream and mix until combined well.

 

Filling mixed

It should be a silky smooth texture.

 

S’more Cheesecake, ready to bake

Pour this into your prepared crust and you’re ready to bake!

 

Turn your oven down to 325 degrees F and bake this cheesecake for 55-60 minutes until the center is just starting to set. Again, you don’t need to bake this in a water bath or anything. Just straight in the oven!

 

After baking

Once the cake is cooked, turn off the oven, crack the door a bit, and let the cheesecake cool slowly in the oven for one hour. Then transfer to the fridge to cool completely for 3-4 hours.

 

When your cheesecake is completely cool, make the marshmallow topping!

This might look intimidating, but it’s pretty straightforward. Basically, it’s a cheater’s meringue. Just add all the topping ingredients except the marshmallows to a large metal mixing bowl and whisk together over a pot of boiling water to slowly heat the mixture.

 

Making topping

Be careful that the topping doesn’t get too hot, as it might cook the eggs. Move it on and off the heat to keep it hot, but not solidifying. Then stir in the marshmallows and let them slowly melt. I cut the marshmallows into quarters so they melt faster.

 

Once the marshmallows are stirred in, let this sit over the heat briefly so they melt and then start whisking the mixture like crazy. You can do this by hand or with the whisk attachment of a stand mixer, but you want the meringue to have stiff peaks and hold its shape.

 

Topping on cheesecake

Then quickly transfer it to the cake, which you should remove from the springform pan at this point.

 

Turn your broiler on high and broil the cheesecake for 60-90 seconds just so the topping starts to brown slightly. Watch it very closely as it can burn quickly and ruin your work!

When the topping is lightly browned, let it cool and then cut and serve!

 

S’more Cheesecake, ready to eat

 

This is a show-stopping dessert and definitely classes up some traditional campfire eats.
