Gluten Free S'more Brownie Cheesecake Parfait

I have been wanting to try this recipe for some time now, and I was not disappointed! Gluten free brownie chunks are layered with a cream cheese, marshmallow cream and yogurt mixture, chocolate ganache and gluten free graham cracker crumbs...oh yum!  You can make one bowl of parfait, or little single serving ones.  I used jelly jars and it was super cute.

As you know, I love recipes that can cut some time by using a mix.  I used the Betty Crocker Gluten Free Brownie Mix for these Gluten Free S'more Brownie Cheesecake Parfaits.  Although I have made some amazing gluten free brownies from scratch, I have to say, this box mix was just as good for this recipe.  We couldn't wait to eat these sweet little parfaits as soon as they were assembled, and they were so rich and decadent with a nice tang from the yogurt and cream cheese, and a bit of crunch from the graham cracker crumbs, but I have to say, after refrigerating them and going in for another round the next day, I really liked the parfaits set up.  The cheesecake mixture became more like cheesecake, instead of a cream, and the ganache turned fudgy.  It was quite amazing!

1 box of Betty Crocker Gluten Free Brownie Mix or a gluten free mix of choice (or homemade)
1 8 oz. package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup Greek vanilla yogurt
1 cup marshmallow creme
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 cup gluten free graham cracker crumbs (I used Kinnikinnick S'moreables Gluten Free Grahams)
2 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted

Make and bake brownies as directed on box.  Cool completely.  Cut into 1/2 inch cubes.  Set aside.  In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer until smooth.  Beat in yogurt, marshmallow creme and sugar.

Place chocolate chips in a medium bowl.  Heat whipping cream in the microwave on high 1 minute or until hot and steaming.  Pour hot cream over chocolate; stir until a smooth and glossy ganache forms.

In a small bowl, stir together graham cracker crumbs and melted coconut oil until combined. In 4 to 8 cups or jars, layer cracker mixture, cream cheese mixture, brownie cubes and ganache.  Garnish with a dollop of marshmallow creme or cream cheese mixture and sprinkle with graham crumbs.  Serve immediately or refrigerate for a more cheesecake-like consistency.
