No Bake S’mores Cheesecake
I know… I’m a genius.
What other logical conclusion could you draw from this completely amaze-balls recipe?
Cheesecake + S’mores = ohmygaaaaah levels of awesome.
But add-in a little no bake action? MAJOR. Like, twerk it out major.
(sorry, had to mention Miley once)
Basically, No Bake S’mores Cheesecake is the dessert of your dreams. You’re welcome.
This week is already feeling like the longest of my life, which is a pretty bad sign considering it’s Tuesday. With half my coworkers on vacation and nearly all my emails generating “Out of Office” replies, my motivation to work is nil. Personally, I just don’t see a point forcing people to come to work when clearly, nothing is going to get done. As a society can’t we just band together and decide that working these five days before Labor Day really has no point? Wouldn’t it just be easier if we all admitted that everyone would benefit from a little extra time boozing on the beach, slammin’ a six-pack in the sun?
Obama… Can you hear me?
But alas, we have yet to go the European route and require that everyone gets drunk for five weeks of the year. As such, I’m forced to attend to my desk and pretend that there are tasks that require my attention. What I’m really doing is browsing Pinterest for recipe ideas and wedding inspiration, learning all about Lamar Odom’s crack problem, and occasionally browsing actual news.
In all fairness, work has been pretty busy recently and I could use a break. It’s kind of nice to head into the office knowing that the day is going to be slow, your free time will be ample, and that hour and a half lunches are totally acceptable. This brief respite also gives me the down time I need to envision newfangled treats, like No Bake S’mores Cheesecake.
Long story short, your Labor Day weekend needs No Bake S’mores Cheesecake. A thick, buttery graham cracker crust, a silky smooth cream cheese and marshmallow filling, and a luscious Hershey’s chocolate swirl, all brought together into utter deliciousness without a second spent in the oven. How could you not love this?! I mean, it’s possible you don’t love this… if you’re the kind of person who enjoys working before Labor Day.
So leave your brownies and your cookies and your oven-baked whatever for another time – No Bake S’mores Cheesecake is where it’s at.

- In food processor, grind graham crackers into crumbs before setting aside in large bowl. In another bowl, slice butter before melting in the microwave for ~45 seconds. Combine butter with graham crackers, mixing thoroughly until all crumbs are damp.
- Using the back of a spoon, press buttered crumbs into springform pan, distributing evenly. Place in freezer until needed.
- In food processor, combine cream cheese, sugar, greek yogurt, marshmallow fluff, and vanilla, pulsing until well combined and scraping the sides as needed. Next, evenly pour mixture into crust.
