S’mores No Bake Cheesecake

We love roasting marshmallows and making S’mores. It is an easy and fun dessert any night of the year.
After a request by one of my kids, I made it into a cheesecake. Of course I went the no bake direction, because it is easy, simple and well not too time consuming.
This cheesecake is best made with regular cream cheese, the fat-free just didn’t hold its form as well.
You can make this into a 9×13 or a 10 in round spring foam pan, like pictured.

S’mores No Bake Cheesecake

This S’mores No Bake Cheesecake layers of marshmallow, chocolate and graham cracker goodness topped with chocolate ganache; it puts a new twist on your traditional summer must have.


  • Graham Cracker Crust
  • 2 ½ packages graham crust, equal to 2 ½ cups
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melt
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar, optional
  • Chocolate Ganache
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup Ghirardelli 60% Cocoa Chocolate Chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Marshmallow Cheesecake
  • 2 – 8 ounce cream cheese
  • ½ cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 container Cool Whip
  • 1 - 7 ounce container marshmallow creme
  • 1 ½ cups miniature marshmallows
  • Chocolate Cheesecake
  • 1 – 8 ounce cream cheese
  • ½ cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 container Cool Whip
  • ½ cups Ghirardelli chocolate chips
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract


Graham Cracker Crust

In a food processor add both packages and process until cookies resemble coarse crumbs. Pour 1 ½ cups of crumbs into medium mixing bowl, add melted butter and mix together until it starts to stick together, add sugar at this point if you choose to add it. Press into the bottom of 9x13 or spring foam pan. Set in the fridge until ready to use.

Marshmallow Cheesecake

Beat cream cheese, sugar, and marshmallow crème in large bowl until smooth. Now stir in Cool Whip and miniature marshmallows until they are well combined; spread over prepared crust. Chill and set in refrigerator while you prepare chocolate cheesecake layer.

Chocolate Cheesecake

In a small mixing bowl or large glass measuring cup, melt chocolate in microwave for 1 minute, stir until completely melted, you may need to stick it back in the microwave for another 30 seconds. Set aside and cool to room temp, or cool to the touch.

Beat cream cheese, sugar, and chocolate in medium mixing bowl until smooth. Now stir in Cool Whip until mixture is well combined; spread over marshmallow layer.

Spread evenly the remaining 1 cup of graham crackers crumb on top of chocolate cheesecake layer, press in a bit so that the crumbs stick. Stick in the refrigerator while you prepare the ganache.

Chocolate Ganache

On a small sauce pan over medium heat bring heavy cream to a rolling boil. Once it has started to boil remove from heat and add chocolate chips. Let it sit for 2-3 minutes, then stir chocolate and cream together until smooth, add vanilla. Pour ½ of the ganache over the cheese cake, on top of the last graham cracker crust layer. If you want to pour it all by all means go ahead. But I like to set the rest of the ganache as a dipping for fruit and animal crackers.

Now chill until filling is firm, about 1 hour.


Total time includes time to chill.


Kids Review – Amazing! They loved this, and they loved seeing the mini marshmallows in their cheesecake.

  2. Oh my, I am so craving this right now. I can’t wait to try this!

  3. wow, now that looks absolutely delicious!

  4. WOW! Need I say more? Thanks for linking up at Wonderful Wed Blog Hop. Carrie, A Mother’s Shadow

  5. Wow… so yummy, Sandra. Even I could probably make this. Great food photography by the way!

  6. Marissa says:

    This looks so good! I may have to make it for tomorrow’s festivities. Most that attend our barbecues are too full for dessert, but this will definitely be one they’ll want to take home for later.

    While reading through the recipe, I noticed that your directions for the marshmallow layer indicate to “Beat cream cheese, sugar, chocolate, and marshmallow crème in large bowl until smooth”, but there’s no chocolate listed in your ingredients list for the marshmallow layer.

  7. This is amazing! This would be great for any summer party…I wonder if the adults would even get any! The kids would be going crazy for it! I am so glad you linked it up with us at Foodie Fridays! I’m going to add it to my Facebook page for Sunday!

  8. I love cheesecake and s’mores, and in the summer I adore anything “no bake”. I was a bit intimidated by the list of ingredients until I read the instructions. Easy Peasy.

  9. Marissa says:

    We had 20 people at our 4th of July barbecue, and this was a hit with everyone that tried it. People were asking for seconds. Hubby says it’s his second favorite cheesecake, only because his favorite is traditional New York style (with no toppings or flavors).
    I made this in a disposable foil pan for convenience, using premade Graham crusts (because they were cheaper). This made enough to fill a 9x12x3 to the top plus a regular pie tin.

    Will definitely make this again!

  10. Those look delicious!! I will have to try those!

    I saw this recipe on Pinterest and had to make it, I just finished assembling all the layers and it’s chilling in the fridge right now. I can’t WAIT to try it, it took a while to make all the filling but it’s worth it :D I will make it again for sure!!!

  18. Roxanne says:

    Is there something you could substitute for the cool whip?

    • You could make homemade whip cream, but that won’t hold the exact same, but if you made it from heavy whipping cream and sugar, it would be okay. xo San

  19. Linda C says:

    Hi Sandra, this dessert looks fantastic and can’t wait to make it. 2 questions, what size containers of cool whip do you use and in the marshmallow cheesecake layer it says to add chocolate but I don’t see it listed in the recipe. Maybe I’m missing it?

    • Linda – thanks for the questions. I used just the standard size, not the extra large size. Thanks for catching that, ignore that part. I updated the recipe. Thanks again! xo San
