S’mores Cheesecake Bars – delicious chocolate chip cheesecake bars topped with marshmallows, graham crackers, and Hershey’s bars!
When I’m not eating cheesecake, I am 100% convinced that I don’t like it. Which is ridiculous for a couple reasons. A) Cheesecake is DELICIOUS and B) I once admitted to eating an entire cheesecake with my BFF while myspace stalking our ex-boyfriends.
So when Nicole and I set out on this s’mores week project I decided to make a cheesecake because I, like just about every other wife of a deployed serviceman, am trying to lose a few pounds before my husband comes home and I knew without a doubt that the cheesecake would not sit in the fridge and call my name until I finally got out of bed at 5:30 am to have a piece. Because I don’t like cheesecake.
But guess who was standing in front of the fridge yesterday morning with a cheesecake bar in her hand while she waited for the coffee to brew.

How To Make S’mores Cheesecake Bars
I love making cheesecake bars instead of a cheesecake because they are so much easier. No worrying about a water bath or a cracked top. They come out perfect every time!
- Make crust by combining graham cracker crumbs, butter, and sugar; press into bottom of 9×13-inch pan
- Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth
- Add flour and beat until blended; add eggs
- Stir in chocolate chips
- Bake for about 30 minutes
- Press chopped Hershey’s bar, mini marshmallows, and chopped graham crackers into the top
- Bake for another 10 minutes, unti the center of the cheesecake is set
- Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before cutting into bars
Can You Freeze Cheesecake Bars?
Yes, you can freeze these S’mores Cheesecake Bars!
I like to freeze in individual portions by wrapping each bar in plastic wrap and then placing all the slices in a freezer ziploc bag. You can also freeze the entire pan by covering it tightly.
Cheesecake will stay good in the freezer for up to 2 months. Defrost in the fridge overnight before serving.
