Gluten-Free Smores Cheesecake

Gluten Free S’mores Cheesecake Recipe

When I was a little girl, I desperately wanted to join the Girl Scouts. I had visions of learning life saving skills and getting badges for such things as besting a raging river, finding my way out of the forest by looking at where the moss grows on trees and giving CPR to fellow Girl Scouts. I dreamed of camp-outs, songs around the fire and most of all, making and eating s’mores!

At the time, I was too young to join the Girl Scouts so my mom signed me up for Brownies. I donned my crisp brown uniform, all excited for the adventures ahead, only to find out that the only thing we did at the meetings was make macaroni art. Kind of ironic for a gluten intolerant girl, don’t you think?

My association with the Brownies did not last long. The closest we got to a camping trip was a meeting outside for an hour in the park. There was no roaring fire, no ghost stories and certainly no s’mores!

I’ve been obsessed with s’mores ever since.

This is a Gluten Free S’mores Cheesecake Recipe, made with Kinnikinnick gluten-free graham style crumbs and S’moreable crackers. Beware – this cheesecake is VERY RICH! Start with a small piece.

Campfire is optional!

Ingredients
Crust
  • Gluten-free non-stick cooking spray
  • 1 (10.5-ounce) box Kinnikinnick gluten free Graham Style Crumbs (about 2 ½ cups)
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
Filling
  • cups heavy whipping cream
  • 16 ounces cream cheese , at room temperature
  • cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • cups semisweet chocolate chips , melted and cooled
Topping
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup marshmallow fluff (marshmallow creme)
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 (2-ounce) milk chocolate candy bar, coarsely chopped
  • 2 full sheets Kinnikinnick S’morables gluten free graham style crackers , coarsely chopped
Instructions
  1. Spray a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray.

Spread the marshmallows in an even layer and place under the broiler until browned. About 3 minutes but watch closely so they don’t burn. Let cool.

    Anything that even remotely resembles a s’more reminds me of summer camp. This looks delicious!

    I, too, was disappointed by Girl Scouts! When I was a troop leader assistant for a while in college, I tried to make it more interesting for my girls. But boy, is that an organization that bogs you down with huge amounts of paperwork for every little thing.

    Wish I could eat cheese! I’d be all over this yummy dessert you’ve made.

    Wow! That looks amazing! I can’t believe there’s no gluten in it.
    I LOOOOVE s’mores stuff. I want some right now!

    That looks heavenly! I used to be a Brownie. I was disappointed, too, at the lack of adventure. I loved the cookies, though. I sold 100 boxes one year!

    Looks delish – what a great way to make a crust too…Is it really 1/4cup of cinnamon?? I’ve never used that much cinnamon in one recipe. Anyways, it looks wonderful..thanks for the idea!

    Deanna – OOOPS! NO it is 1/4 teaspoon – thanks for pointing out my typo! I have corrected the post to reflect the correct measurement.

    I have got to try this! It looks so delish!

    this looks absolutely delicious! mmm! I was bad in girl scouts – my friend and i spent most of our time just creating a new language together instead of paying attention. tsk tsk on us.

    I really connected with your first sentence. I always wanted to be a girl scout too as a child, but with 5 other kinds to tend to and a limited budget, it was never an option. I remember begging and crying to my mom to let me join.

    We’re obsessed with smores too, that’s we have two fire pits in the backyard, so that all us drunk adults can roast smores during our late nite parties.

    Your delicious, brilliant and fire free version just might be safer for the really drunk guests! Thanks, it really does look soooo good.

    You make me want to try things I am not even very interested in, like chocolate. That is testament to how good your food is.

    oh my gosh, but that is the most amazing thing I’ve seen all week!! I WANT SOME!!! You must share dear girl!!

    Yikes, I’d love to try some of this! I’m a huge cheesecake fan but have never made a successful one (because I always try to make lower in fat). This certainly beats a regular old cheesecake anyday! Although I just came back from NY and I think a lot of people might disagree with that.

  19. July 24, 2008

    i’m so jealous b/c it reminds me of how my entire family is going camping this weekend and will making traditional s’mores.

    i’m sending this link to my mom. she and my dad will love it.

    Thanks for stopping by. I’m loving your blog, especially because I share a similar smores addiction and thinking of my favorite gooey combination in cheesecake form is a little too overwhelming on this Monday morning. Looks delicious!!

    Now that’s a pie! Everything a pie-eater could want.

    This looks fantastic! The cheesecake is so creamy and I love the marshmallow fluff topping.

    This recipe looks great. I’ve missed eating S’mores.
    The whole GS thing is really dependent on energy of the leader. Because of law suits you really have to jump through hoops for the adventurous outings. I’ve been a leader for 10 years and my girls have gone camping 2-3 times a year with lots of adventures, it’s just a lot of work on me, but totally worth it for my outdoorsy girls!
    Can’t wait to try this recipe, maybe I’ll make it for our next snoe camp out in January!

    I've never seen a s'mores cheesecake. Brilliant!

    What a great idea! Not to mention you managed to make it gluten free.

    I never had good experiences with girl scout troop either, we camped out in our scout leader's backyard. Pathetic!

    I love the idea of that crust! I love s'mores desserts, but have had to stay away because of the graham crackers. I'm definitely bookmarking this to try!

    I can't believe it's grain-free! Wow, that looks decadent. Thanks for sharing. I know what I'm craving… :)
