No Bake Mini Cheesecakes – Delish Camping Dessert

Everyone knows that s’mores are THE classic camping dessert. And for good reason – there’s just something about roasting a marshmallow over an open campfire then smushing a perfectly toasted hunk of gooeyness between two graham crackers lined with chocolate. Yep. Pretty awesome stuff. But sometimes you’ve gotta change it up a bit. And these No Bake Mini Cheesecakes are the perfect fun, easy, and delicious alternative to s’mores.

No Bake Mini Cheesecakes have their own special kind of yumminess. Rich, dense, sweet, tangy, luscious cream cheese filling nestled in a homemade, buttery, crispy graham cracker crust made and served up in individual cups are a fun, simple, and very tasty make-ahead dessert that’s perfect for sitting around a crackling campfire with friends and family.

Our plastic wine cups are just the right size for these elegant, individual no-bake mini cheesecakes. They’re light, portable, line up neatly in an RV fridge (or your food cooler) and are just the right size to grab and go! Not only that, there’s plenty of room to top off your cheesecake with any number of wonderful toppings (I’m thinking raspberries, strawberries, or perhaps a drizzle of caramel or chocolate…? Mmm! Delicious!)

How To Make No Bake Mini Cheesecakes

Drizzle melted butter into finely crushed graham cracker crumbs and add some sugar. Mix well. Press into the bottom of the plastic wine cup (using the bottom of a shot glass makes this super easy) and refrigerate for 15 minutes. Blend softened cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice, and vanilla until creamy. Spoon mixture onto chilled crust and refrigerate at least 4 hours. Serve with topping of choice! See full recipe below.

And you certainly don’t have to wait until next time you go camping to enjoy these! Any old occasion will do (or no occasion at all…) Just make ’em and enjoy! I prefer mine with no topping at all – well, maybe a little extra sprinkling of crushed graham crackers. But the fresh strawberries and chocolate drizzle are a hit with everyone else. Comment below with your suggestion for toppings. I’d love to try something new! (And if you’re still hell-bent on s’mores, I’ve got that covered here.)

Instructions
Graham Cracker Crust
  1. Crush approximately 8 slabs of graham crackers in food processor to yield 1 1/2 cups crushed. Add melted butter and blend well. Spoon 1/4 of the mixture into the bottom of a plastic wine cup. Press firmly (the bottom of a shot glass works well) and pack on the bottom and slightly up the sides of the cup. Place in refrigerator for 15 minutes to firm up the crust.
Cream Cheese Filling
  1. Blend room temperature cream cheese, sweeteneed condensed milk, lime juice and vanilla extract in a medium bowl using a hand held mixer. (Can use a stand mixer if prefered, or whisk by hand.) Spoon 1/4 of this mixture into each crust-lined wine cup. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or covered overninght. Just before serving, top with a sprinkling of crushed grahams or sliced berriers. Grab a cup and sit by your campfire at dessert time!
