Do I really need cheesecake to set up overnight 

Yes, you absolutely need to let the cheesecake set up overnight. If you don’t, the cheesecake will be very mushy and fall apart as you try to cut it. I know it’s tempting to skip this step so you can taste how delicious it is, but I promise you really need to let it set up overnight to get the full effect. 

How to Know When Cheesecake is Done 

When checking your freshly cooked cheesecake you should take a thermometer and insert it into the center of the cake. It should read between140 degrees to 150 degrees Fahrenheit.

If the temperature of the cheesecake is not close to 140 degrees, then you should go ahead and cook it for another 5 to 10 minutes in your instant pot. When you’re looking at your cheesecake, the outside edges should be set up when the cheesecake is done, and you will have a slight jiggle in the center.

Tips For Freezing Cheesecake 

You can freeze this cheesecake very easily. All you need to do is let the cheesecake cool in the refrigerator overnight, then wrap it up very tightly and place it in a food storage container to keep it in the freezer for up to three months. When you’re ready to serve the cheesecake, place it in the refrigerator or the night before so it will be thawed out when you’re ready to eat it. Sometimes I will make an extra cheesecake just so I can have it handy when something creeps up on me, and I need a fast dessert.

Can I Make an Oreo Crust Instead of Graham Cracker 

Yes, absolutely! You can easily swap out the graham crackers for Oreos instead. You can opt to use a regular Oreos, mint Oreos, or even a peanut butter Oreos would be delicious. You can crush up the Oreo cookies in your food processor and prepare them the same way that you would a graham cracker crumbs. 


Crust Ingredients:

  • 2 C crushed graham cracker crumbs
  • ¼ C unsalted butter, melted

Cheesecake Filling

  • 2 – 8oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 C sugar
  • ½ C sour cream
  • ¾ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ⅛ tsp kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs

Chocolate Ganache

  • 1 C Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ C heavy whipping cream
  • 1 8oz bag of Hershey Smore mix

How To Make Instant Pot Cheesecake S’mores Recipe

Crust Directions:

First Step: Begin by lining and 8in springform pan with parchment paper and set it aside. 

Second Step: Combine the crushed graham crackers with the unsalted butter to form a crust. Press the crust into the bottom of the springform pan. You can use the back of a glass or cup to help press it down. You want the crust to be a thin layer. 

Cheesecake Filling Directions

First Step: Take a stand mixer and beat together the cream cheese and butter until they are creamy and smooth. Add in the sour cream, vanilla, and salt until they are combined. Then add the eggs one at a time, being sure to beat in between each addition. 

Building and baking the cheesecake:

First Step: Carefully pour the cheesecake batter into the crust and cover it tightly with aluminum foil. 

Second Step: Then put the trivet in the bottom of the instant pot along with 1 and 1/2 cups of water. 

Third Step: Slowly lower the cheesecake down onto the trivet and add the lid to the instant pot. 

Fourth Step: Turn the instant pot to high pressure for 34 minutes and complete a full natural release. The natural release will take around 15 to 20 minutes, so don’t be alarmed if it takes that long. 

Fifth Step: After the cheesecake has cooled, remove it from the instant pot and place it on the counter to finish cooling completely. 

Sixth Step: Put the cheesecake in the refrigerator overnight. This will allow it to set up completely. 

Chocolate Ganache Directions:

First Step: You will need to add the chocolate chips to a heat-safe bowl. Pour the warmed heavy cream over the tops of the chocolate chips and whisk until smooth. 

Second Step: Carefully pour the ganache over the top of the cheesecake, so it is smooth and even. 

Third Step: Allow the ganache to go ahead and drip off the sides of the cheesecake. Allow it to sit and harden for at least 30 minutes. 

Fourth Step: Make a batch of homemade whipped cream and add dollops around the edges of the cheesecake. Add any other toppings that you would like, such as chocolate chips, marshmallows, crushed cookies, or anything else you enjoy.
