This marshmallow cheesecake is a quick and easy St. Patrick’s Day dessert that you can make the night before. Then, add the topping before serving. However, with the colorful marshmallows, it’s a fun treat to make anytime in the Spring or Summer.
I love the addition of lucky charms cereal marshmallows and the color green! If you didn’t know, you can buy the marshmallows only, without cereal, from Amazon! Read how I used them to make yogurt parfaits.
St. Patrick’s Day Dessert Recipe
What you need:
graham cracker pie crust
1/3 cup heavy cream
2 8 oz blocks of cream cheese – sit at room temp to soften
16 oz tub cool whip
1 stp vanilla extract
1 cup of powder sugar
green food coloring
*To be honest, I made this without powder sugar to reduce the carbs. However, without the sugar to stiffen the cheesecake, it serves more like a pudding pie. Same great taste, so worth a try!
What to do:
In a mixer, whip the heavy cream till peaks form. Sit aside.
In a separate mixing bowl, combine softened cream cheese, 2 cups cool whip, vanilla extract, food coloring with a mixture until smooth. When cream cheese has softened, add whipped heavy cream and powder sugar.
Next, pour the mixture into an already prepared graham cracker pie crust.
Then, refrigerate the cheesecake for 6-8 hours. Overnight is even better.
With a large spoon, add heaping spoonfuls of cool whip around the edge of the pie, leaving the center open. Use the back of the spoon to create overlapping piles of cool whip.
Lastly, sprinkle handfuls of cereal marshmallows onto the whip cream. Refrigerate until served.
Pour the mixture into the pie crust.
Add spoonfuls of cool whip.
Sprinkle marshmallows on top.
Refrigerate until served.
These cereal marshmallows are the cutest thing to add to desserts and treats.
