Though cheesecake is usually made with just cream cheese and sugar, the added marshmallow puff just adds a hint of sweetness and creaminess to the cream. The buttery crust, cheesecake along with homemade ganache and fresh berries are such a great combination of flavors and packed in every bite. SO GOOD!

how to make a no bake cheesecake-

Since this is a no-bake recipe, it’s a good recipe choice when the weather is hot and you don’t want to turn on the oven, you’re welcome!

CRUST- This crust is a classic recipe and so easy to prepare. Crush the graham crackers in a Ziploc bag with a rolling pin or a hand-held blender (we love this Cuisinart blender and use it all the time).

Add the crushed crackers to the bottom of a springform pan and combine with melted butter. Gently press down on the mixture to form crumbs (either a 9” springform pan may be used or a 10” pan).

GANACHE- Prepare the ganache per instructions below and set aside to cool completely.

CREAM- This cream is so easy. It’s rich, creamy, velvety and takes like a cheesecake with the marshmallow puff adding an unexpected hint of flavor. In a bowl, combine the ingredients for the cream until smooth and well incorporated.

Spread the cream cheese mixture over the crust and spread into an even layer.

Remove the sides of the pan and add the cooled ganache over the top of the cream cheese layer.

BERRIES- Berries of personal preference may be used; raspberries, blueberries, strawberries or blackberries. Tweak the proportions of the berries as you like. (Tip: The strawberries may be sliced thin, halved or quartered in the recipe. The remaining berries may be added whole)

Finish off the no-bake cheesecake by topping it with your favorite berries.

how to make homemade ganache-

The perfect consistency for homemade ganache is with a ratio of 1 oz to 1 oz, meaning 1 ounce of chocolate to 1 ounce of heavy whipping cream. I used cups in this recipe and the same goes to cups, 1 cup of chopped milk chocolate (or chocolate chip morsels) to 1 cup heavy whipping cream.

The ganache is perfect in consistency. It’s not runny and thick enough easily spread over top of the cream cheese layer.

what kind of chocolate should I use for ganache?

You can use milk chocolate of choice (our favorite) or dark chocolate if you prefer dark chocolate over milk chocolate. If using a chunk of chocolate, be sure to chop it finely so it melts when the warm cream is poured over it.

I just love all the ingredients in this no-bake cheesecake. From the butter crust to the surprise marshmallow cream cheese and added ganache with berries. Perfection in every bite.

    Really like this cake. My boy just had surgery for appendicitis and wants to be pampered (poor thing) so this one is in order today! Love that the ingredients don’t require a special trip to the store – we already have them in the pantry and fridge. So pretty, too!Pinned.

      I’m sorry about your son, Milena. That’s not good. Hope he feels better! And yes, this is so pretty. Thanks for pinning. 🙂

    I made this cheese cake 3 times already. My husband really loved it. Second time I made crust without sugar and it turned out perfect, not too sweet. And ganache turns out a lot. I tried making half recipe of the ganache and still I had left over ganache. But overal I like how it turns out with marshmallows, it gives unique taste

      Thanks so much for all the tips, Lily. Yes, it does make a thick layer of ganache and if you aren’t a fan of chocolate, prepare less. 🙂
      I didn’t even think to skip the sugar, great idea! Thank you for trying our recipes :)..
