  • 225 gms cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 85 gms semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 85 gms heavy cream

How you can put it together:

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter. Evenly divide the crumbs between 6 individual serving dishes and press into the bottoms of the dishes to form a crust layer. Place serving dishes into the refrigerator while you prepare the cheesecake.
  2. Place 25 Campfire Regular Marshmallows in a large, deep microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high power for 45-60 seconds. Marshmallows will puff up and begin to melt. Use a buttered spatula to stir the marshmallows until smooth. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, whip the cream cheese for about 2 minutes. Add in confectioners’ sugar and vanilla and beat for an additional minute. Use a buttered spatula to scoop the melted marshmallows into the cream cheese mixture and beat for an additional minute. Use a rubber spatula to fold in whipped topping.
  4. Spoon or pipe the cheesecake filling directly onto the graham cracker crusts and place them back into the refrigerator while you prepare the ganache.
  5. Add chocolate to a heat-safe bowl. Bring cream just to a boil over medium-high heat. Pour heated cream over the chocolate and Let stand for 5 minutes and then whisk to combine. Spoon chocolate ganache onto the cheesecake layer and place back into the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.
  6. Just before serving, top each cheesecake with a toasted Campfire Giant Roaster marshmallow.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 cans (13.5oz) coconut cream 
  • cup chopped avocado 
  • 5+ tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla 
  • 2 tbsp black cocoa (optional to darken one layer)
  • 1 cup dates soaked, pitted, chopped
  • 3/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/3 cup cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp black cocoa (optional to darken bottom layer)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • upright paper liners

How you can put it together:

Make the Coconut Cream (top layer)

  1. Blend a little less than two cups of coconut cream (only use the solid white portion from each can) and 3 tbsp of maple syrup until smooth and creamy. Taste for sweetness, adding more maple syrup to your taste. Separate the whipped cream into two bowls, one of them large.

Make Chocolate Mousse (two middle layers)

  1. Blend the avocados, cacao powder, black cocoa, 2 tbsp maple syrup, and vanilla.
  2. Hand-stir the chocolate avo mixture into the whipped cream that is in the large bowl. This is the chocolate mousse you will use to create two chocolate middle layers. Taste for sweetness, adding more maple syrup to your taste.
  3. If you are going to create a dark layer of chocolate, separate the chocolate mousse into two bowls. Stir into one of them 2 tbsp of black cocoa.
    Now you have three layers ready – the top whipped coconut cream, and the two chocolate layers waiting in bowls. Time to make the raw brownie bottom layer.

Make Raw Brownie (bottom layer)

  1. Chop and pit dates.
  2. In a mini-food processor (or blender), pulse dates, walnuts, cacao powder,  black cocoa powder (only if you want to darken it), cinnamon. You want the mixture to be sticky-crumbly.

Build Round Cake

1. Insert upright paper molds into a cupcake tin or line on a cookie sheet or pan.

2. Press the brownie layer into cups, dividing between them evenly. Press the mixture flat with fingers and bottom of small glass.
3. Spoon darker mousse layer on top, dividing evenly. My recipe ended up creating about 3 cups of mousse so I spooned 3-4 tbsp of mousse per layer.
4. Spoon the lighter mousse layer on top of that, spreading gently with a spoon.
Last, add the whipped coconut cream. You want the paper cup filled to the top.
Freeze the cups solid, then peel off the paper.
