Incredibly delicious no bake s’mores cheesecake made with layers of crushed digestive biscuits, creamy no bake marshmallow cheesecake, chocolate ganache and toasted marshmallows. It is absolutely amazing.
Two cheesecake based desserts in a row. What am I like! I do love my cheesecake.
The funny thing is as a child and in my early adult years I wasn’t a big fan of cheesecake. It was after I started baking and trying different cheesecake recipes, that I began to enjoy cheesecakes. What’s not to like about cheesecake, it’s rich and creamy and quite simply delicious. You can enjoy cheesecake baked or unbaked and make it in many flavours. Fruit, cookies or melted chocolate are some of the many ingredients that you can be add to cheesecake.
I am constantly on the look out for new cheesecake recipes. Like this s’mores cheesecake recipe which I found on My Baking Addiction.
Which I am sharing here today, Well my my version of a no bake s’more cheesecake. 🙂
The s’mores cheesecake starts off with a biscuit crust. Traditionally s’mores are made with Graham crackers. But as I live in country where graham cracker are not easy to get and can be quite pricey, the crust is made with my favourite all time biscuits. Sweet crumbly digestive biscuits. Digestives always bring back memories of my days in boarding school. They were my go to treat in school and still are. Now I use them for some of my cheesecake crusts. Like these individual no bake marshmallow cheesecakes or this creamy chessecake with strawberry compote. To make the crust, mix crushed digestives with melted butter and spoon into your serving dishes.
Next is the incredibly rich and creamy marshmallow filling. I kid you not when I say this cheesecake filling tastes really good. The ingredients are cream cheese, marshmallows, whipped cream, icing sugar and vanilla extract. Prepare the filling by beating together the cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla extract. Melt the marshmallows in a microwave on high until puffed and begins to melt. Stir with a buttered spatula until smooth. Fold the melted marshmallows into the cream cheese mix. Finish off the cheesecake filling by folding in whipped cream. Then pipe or spoon the cheesecake filling over the crusts.
When you are ready to serve drizzle the top of each s’mores cheesecake parfait with chocolate ganache. Make the ganache with milk or dark chocolate that you enjoy eating.
Now for the finishing touch. Top each s’more cheesecake parfait with toasted marshmallows. Place the marshmallows under a grill until golden brown. The marshmallows toast really quickly so watch the oven carefully. Or you could use a kitchen torch to toast the marshmallows.
And that’s it. So little work for such a luscious dessert. 🙂
