I think of s’mores when I think of January. On this day, my kids and I made a S’mores Cheesecake. All the bells and whistles of a s’more but in cheesecake form. Yum!
For this recipe, you will need a 9″ springform pan. You can find these pans everywhere from Target to Williams-Sonoma and a multitude of places in between.
2 cups of crushed graham crackers
1 stick of butter, melted
4 (8 oz) packages of cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar
4 eggs, at room temp
1 (7 oz) container of marshmallow creme
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 cup of chocolate chips
a little chocolate fudge to garnish, optional
a few mini marshmallows to garnish, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly spray your springform pan with cooking spray and set aside.
In your food processor, pulse 2 cups of your crushed graham crackers with your melted butter until combined. Press this mixture across the bottom of your pan. Set aside.
In your mixing bowl, beat with an electric mixer your cream cheese and sugar. Beat in your eggs followed by your marshmallow creme and then your vanilla. Stir in your chocolate chips.
Pour your batter into your pan on top of your crust.
Bake one hour.
After you remove the cake from the oven allow to cool on your counter 20 minutes before covering and placing in the fridge at least 4 hours (up to 48).
When you’re ready to serve, remove from fridge, pop the sides off of your springform pan and either serve or you can garnish it with a little chocolate fudge and a few mini marshmallows.
That’s it! Your kids will LOVE this nod to s’mores!
