Ingredients for Pumpkin S’mores Cheesecake Bars

If you have left over s’mores ingredients from the summer, making pumpkin s’mores cheesecake bars is a great way to use them up. Here is a quick look at the ingredients you will need to make this tasty dessert:

For the Crust: Graham crackers, sugar, pumpkin spice, butter

For the Filling: cream cheese, brown sugar, eggs, pumpkin puree, heavy cream, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg

For the Crumble/Topping:  Graham crackers, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, chocolate chunks, mini marshmallows, marshmallow cream

I bet you already have a lot of these ingredients in your pantry. Now is also a great time to stock up on pumpkin puree. It tends to sell out in our local grocery store once fall arrives. I like to have a few cans on hand, ready to use whenever a pumpkin craving hits! Especially the craving for this pumpkin cheesecake bars recipe.

How to Make Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

There are three main steps to make the perfect pumpkin cheesecake bars recipe. First, you make the graham cracker crust, then the pumpkin cheesecake filling and then the s’mores crumble topping. When the recipe is broken down into parts, you will see that these bars are actually quite easy!

how to make pumpkin cheesecake bars

1. Make the Graham cracker crust- Mix the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, pumpkin spice and butter in a bowl. Press the crust into the bottom of an 8×8 inch pan then bake until it is golden brown.

2. Make the pumpkin cheesecake filling- beat the cream cheese and brown sugar. Add the eggs, pumpkin puree, heavy cream, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg.

3. Pour the pumpkin cheesecake over the graham cracker crust and bake for 45 minutes.

6. Cool the pumpkin s’mores cheesecake bars in the fridge and then enjoy!

There may be a long ingredient list to this recipe but the steps are actually quite simple. You are probably going to make these bars a lot this fall (I know I will be!) and they will get easier and easier to put together!

Tips and Tricks for Making Pumpkin S’mores Cheesecake Bars

Even though fall is just beginning, I have already made pumpkin s’mores cheesecake bars a few times. I wanted to perfect the recipe before I shared it with you and I also just wanted to eat a few more… I just can’t resist!

Here are a few tricks and tips that I have found to help make these pumpkin cheesecake bars recipe truly perfect.

  • Eat with a fork – The filling of these pumpkin cheesecake bars is soft and very cheesecake-like. Since the cheesecake layer is very thick, it is best to eat the bars on a plate with a fork.
  • Make the bars thinner – If you want a pumpkin s’mores cheesecake bar that you can pick up and eat with your hands, double the crust and the crumble topping portion of the recipe. Spread the crust across a 9×13 pan and then make the pumpkin cheesecake layer thinner. The bars will bake a little faster but, once chilled, you can eat them with you hands, more like a bar.
  • Use the marshmallow cream – Drizzling marshmallow cream over the pumpkin bars takes them from looking like a homemade dessert to a fancy, bakery-worthy treat. Marshmallow cream also just tastes great and adds another flavor and texture to the bars.
  • Use cinnamon graham crackers – Cinnamon graham crackers will add a little more fall-flavor to the recipe. Honey graham crackers will also taste great.
  • Make the bars and then eat them soon – The graham cracker crust can get soggy if it sits for more than a day or two. I have found that the bars taste best when eaten soon after they bake.
  • Watch the marshmallows – Marshmallows tend to burn quickly in the oven. If you ever made s’mores in the oven, then you know this is true! Keep an eye on the topping as it bakes to make sure your marshmallows are a perfect golden brown.

Follow these tips and you are sure to bake a perfect, pumpkin pie bar recipe that will kick off your fall season in the best way!

It is never too soon to start making pumpkin spice desserts. I wish pumpkin season could last forever! But I also get sad saying goodbye to my favorite s’mores recipe and also goodbye to summer.

Give these pumpkin s’mores cheesecake bars a try and let me know what you think. They are the perfect blend of summer and fall so now is the best time to make them. Enjoy! 🙂
