Comments & Reviews

  1. 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?

    1. 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.

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

  2. These do not just look good but taste good too!!! I made these on a whim to take with me to a friend’s house. They received rave reviews from the kids and the adults. DELICIOUS!

  3. This is really awesome combo, cheesecake,cupcakes and S’more, all in one.I’ve featured this recipe on my blog, hoping that you don’t mind, but if you do, please contact me and I’ll remove it. All the best.

  4. Cheesecake is my absolute favorite dessert and I’m always looking to try different kinds. This one just made the list! 😀

  5. Call me sold! I love individual cheesecakes so I am not tempted to eat more than a slice. And s’mores makes this even better!

  6. LOL, fit better in your fat pants! That’s hilarious. I would definitely have to bring these to a large gathering. I hate my fat pants.

  7. This is just sooooo cool! these cheesecakes look soooo gorgeous and that little Hershey’s bar, gosh, just the cutest! I’m a sucker for cheesecakes and I’m definitely gonna make this one!

  8. I know what you mean… I tend to eat more than my share of cheesecake too. We should start a club! I’m loving the tiny size of the S’mores Cheesecakes. Totally helps with portion control!

  9. Cheesecake and smores both make me weak in the knees! Something about smores is just incredible and I never turn down cheesecake. Not to mention they are so pretty and adorable! Every layer looks so rich and delicious – this is an amazing recipe!

  10. These are adorable! I love chocolate cheesecake so turning that into s’mores cheesecake sounds heavenly!
