Everyone loves S’mores. Why wouldn’t you? It’s an incredible combo! You’ve got the crunchy texture from the biscuit base, the creamy sweetness from the marshmallow & a silky indulgence from the chocolate. It’s only natural to want to adapt this fabulous trio of flavours to create other delicious treats. Now it’s no secret that I love a good no bake cheesecake. They’re so easy to prepare & the fridge does all the hard work for you. So, without further ado, I give you my No Bake S’mores Cheesecake! (Recipe adapted from The Gracious Wife.)
Here is what you will need to serve 8.
For the Biscuit Base
For the Filling
Line the base of your pan with baking paper.
To make the base, blitz the digestive biscuits in a food processor (or bash in a freezer bag with a rolling pan if you need to de stress!) until small crumbs form. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small saucepan over a low heat.
Pour the melted butter into the biscuit crumbs & pulse until it just starts to clump together.
Press the crumbs into the prepared base with the back of a metal spoon then pop into the fridge to set whilst we prepare the filling.
Pour the marshmallows into a large glass bowl and melt in the microwave for about 30 – 40 seconds.
Mix the melted marshmallow together with the cream cheese, icing sugar & vanilla extract until smooth. You can do this either in a stand mixer or in a large bowl with a spatula.
Break the chocolate into another large glass bowl. Add 1 tbsp of the marshmallow mixture & 2 tbsp of milk.
Microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring each time, until melted and smooth. If for any reason it splits, just keep adding a little milk & stirring until it becomes smooth again.
Pour the marshmallow mixture into the prepared base and spread evenly.
Top randomly with the chocolate mixture & swirl around with a knife or skewer to create a marbled effect.
Place into the fridge to set for a minimum of 4 hours. Overnight is better if you have the time.
When completely set, slice into 8 and serve! This should keep in the fridge for 3 – 4 days.
And there you have it! An insanely indulgent dessert that will wow your dinner party guests, friends & family. It’s a great make ahead dessert, and I think it’s always good to be able to take a bit of stress off the ‘big day!’
I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time!
