S’mores Mini Cheesecakes

My foray into the ranks of the Girl Scouts of America was a brief and un-momentous part of my life as I entered the fourth grade. All the girls in my class were joining, so naturally I wanted to be part of this elite service-oriented group. I mean, they got to wear an array of brightly colored embroidered badges on a banner across their chests, who wouldn’t want to do that. And so I did what any red-blooded American elementary schooler would do, and I enlisted.

I knew immediately this might be a decision that I would regret. Being the fashionista that I was, even in the fourth grade, my heart sank as soon as I tried on that green, military-style scouting dress. Oh no, this was bad. There was apparently no way to doll this outfit up. The deal breaking moment came when we had a camping weekend out in the woods and  to my horror there were no proper “facilities”. I called my mother and had her rescue me from this terrible fate.

But there is a silver lining in all our life’s experiences. It was in the Girl Scouts (yet ever so briefly) that I was introduced to that heavenly concoction they call s’mores. In life, what could be better than graham crackers with melted chocolate and marshmallows. Bless the Girl Scouts. That snack was the inspiration for these S’mores Mini Cheesecakes. You don’t need to be a scout to enjoy them.

Mama’s Tips: 

You can leave your cream cheese and eggs out overnight so that they will be room temperature. The cream cheese is so much easier to beat, and will incorporate into the batter easier when it is room temperature.

  1. Wow, these look so gorgeous! I, too, had a brief stint as a girl scout, but I think it just petered out. I don’t think we even went to camp. My kids had a lot of fun in their scouting groups, up to a certain age. Heck, I think I had more fun in their scouting groups than they did!

    I didn’t know there was a mini cheesecake pan thingy! I thought you might have cut them out, the look so perfect. I need one now…

    Smore’s and Banana Boats…best part of scouting!

  2. Sheryl, I find great joy in reading your posts. I smile, smirk, and smile s’more. Since you couldn’t embellish your uniform, good thing you paid attention at the campfire because you dressed up these little dessert gems worthy of a sash full of badges.

  3. Thanks for liking my Gluten free cake post Sheryl!!!

    I absolutely love your blog. This is definitely a recipe I’m going to try. Quick question do you cut out the mini cheesecakes or do you make them individually?

    Thank you
