Smores no bake cheesecake recipe

Since I live in New York I’m pretty spoiled with good cheesecakes in my area. We have some of the best Italian Pastry Shops that sell the most amazing creamy, delicious cheesecakes. My Instant Pot NY Cheesecake Recipe is one of my go-to recipes when I have the time to make it at home.

However, when I’m short on time, I make No-Bake Cheesecake. It’s a recipe that I’ve had for years and it’s great when I’m in the mood for a sweet treat. This time I added a twist and made it into a S’mores dessert.

For the graham cracker crust:

To assemble Smores no-bake cheesecakes in mason jars:
