S’more Cheesecakes

by aimee @ shugarysweets on August 7, 2013

Next time you are craving S’mores, try making these individual S’more Cheesecakes! All the flavor of a S’mores with no campfire needed!

S'mores Cheesecakes: individual cheesecakes topped with chocolate ganache, marshmallow frosting and Hersheys!

Baking cheesecake is something I love to do. Although, I try not to do it very often. I tend to eat more than my share, cheesecake leaves me weak in the knees!

Today’s recipe is perfect when you’re looking for that delicious S’mores flavor. With a graham cracker crust and chocolate cheesecake filling, you’re almost there! The chocolate ganache was just an added bonus. You need that melty-gooey chocolate when eating a s’more. And undercooked chocolate cheesecake is just gross, so let’s go with ganache instead!

S'mores Cheesecakes: individual cheesecakes topped with chocolate ganache, marshmallow frosting and Hersheys!

These S’more cheesecakes are topped with a marshmallow frosting (OF COURSE) and an extra Hershey bar, you know, for garnish purposes!

If you’re looking for a treat to bring to your next potluck, these cheesecakes are the answer! Or if you’re looking to fit better in those fat pants, this cheesecake is the answer. What?

Is it necessary to refrigerate for three days? I need these done by like seven or so, does freezing it until then work?

Reply

Anne December 31, 2013 at 6:24 pm

I need these done in less than four hours, does freezing them work instead of keeping them in the fridge for three days work?

Reply

aimee @ shugarysweets December 31, 2013 at 6:33 pm

These are ready in about an hour and a half. The Three days in fridge is how long you can store after baking. ENJOY.

I am thinking about doing these for my wedding. If I were to make the cheesecake and bake them ahead of time, would I be able to freeze them? I will decorate them a day before the wedding, but I don’t want to have to bake them as well. Do you know if they will still taste the same and how long I could keep them in the freezer?

Reply

aimee @ shugarysweets April 20, 2014 at 6:36 pm

You can. Just make sure they are completely airtight so no frost gets on them! I try not to freeze my cheesecakes for more than 1-2 weeks.
