Smore’s Cheese Ball

S’mores Cheese Ball is all you love about s’mores rolled up for a sweet dip!

Summertime always means there is plenty of BBQs, pool time, lazy days in the sun and smore’s!

This Smore’s Cheeseball (cream cheese not cheddar cheese…that would be gross) is the perfect snack, appetizer, dip for any BBQ, camping trip, summer party or poolside snack! It comes together in minutes and is delicious! I am normally not a sweet eater but I loved it and the teenagers at our last family party devoured it!

I prefer just graham crackers to dip, but my kids love Nilla Wafers and Animal cookies. The sky is the limit with what you can dip and I know you will love it!

S’mores Cheese Ball is all you love about s’mores rolled up for a sweet dip! The perfect treat (without the campfire)!

Ingredients

S'mores Cheese Ball Mixture

  • 2 pkgs cream cheese (8 oz. each)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup marshmallow cream
  • 1/3 cup mini marshmallows see notes
  • 1,3 cup mini chocoloate chips see notes
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla (optional)
  • pinch of coarse/kosher salt

Smore's Ball Topping (it will be rolled in this)

  • 5 whole graham crackers, crushed see notes
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips see notes
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows see notes

Cookie/Cracker Suggestions for dipping

  • graham crackers
  • Nilla Wafers
  • animal crackers/cookies
  • shortbread cookies
  • teddy grahams

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl or mixer, mix cream cheese, marshmallow cream, powdered sugar, vanilla (optional) and kosher salt. Mix until smooth.
  • Add in mini marshmallows and mini chocolate chips and mix until incorporated evenly.
    *Adding in the mini marshmallows and mini chocolate chips to the cheese ball is optional. If you want the cheese ball to be smooth for dipping you can skip this step. If you choose to add them to the mixture, you can add more or less of them to your liking.
  • Place cream cheese mixture in the fridge for 20-30 minutes to chill so it will be more firm to roll into a ball.
  • While the cheese ball is chilling, crush graham crackers and put in a shallow dish. Add mini marshmallows and mini chocolate chips and mix well. You will roll the cheese ball in this mixture so you can add more or less of the chocolate chips and mini marshmallows-however much your little heart desires.
  • Once the cream cheese mixture has chilled in the fridge, roll the mixture into a ball. Then roll the ball in the smore's topping mixture so the entire ball is covered evenly in the smore's topping mixture.
  • Serve the cheese ball with crackers and cookies of your choice.
  • This cheese ball will keep in the fridge for only 2 days. The graham crackers in the topping will soften the longer it sits.

Notes

If you can’t find the tiny mini marshmallows (in my grocery store mine are near the hot chocolate mixes) then you can use the regular little marshmallows that are easier to find and can cut them into tiny pieces. 
For the outside Smore’s topping you can add more or less of the mini marshmallows or mini chocolate chips.  
Adding in the mini marshmallows and mini chocolate chips to the cheese ball mixture is optional. If you want the cheese ball to be smooth for dipping you can skip this step. If you choose to add them to the mixture, you can add more or less of them to your liking.
I have made this with crushed up graham crackers in the cheese ball mix and it was delicious for the added graham cracker taste but the graham crackers will go a bit soft… so give it a try and you may like it!

  1. The ingredients list only shows the choc chips & mini marshmallows as part of the rolling ingredients, but the written instructions show to add mini chips & marshmallows to cream cheese mix….. do you just throw in a handful or so? I can’t tell from the pics if they are in the actual ball or just on the outside. Thanks!

      Hi Cassie! I’m so glad you caught that in the recipe! I will go in and fix the actual recipe with the amounts I add to the actual cream cheese mixture! I usually add about 1/3 cup of each to the cream cheese mixture. You can add more or less or you don’t have to add them if you want the cream cheese mixture to be smooth for dipping! I hope you enjoy the recipe! ❤️
