Smores Cheesecake

I have always LOVED making cheesecake and eating it. I found this recipe a couple of years ago and have made it a couple of times. My brother Jordan has been wanting me to make him one since he got here and I finally did the other day. It turned great and was so easy for a cheesecake. If you are dying for a smore, but want it a little upscale, give this a try.

1/2 cup butter, melted
2 1/4 cup graham wafer crumbs
1/3 cup sugar

2 packages (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1 can sweetened condensed milk (Eagle Brand, 300ml)
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 eggs
1 cup miniature chocolate chips
1 cup miniature marshmallows

1 cup miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 tablespoon butter


Combine butter, graham wafer crumbs and sugar. Press into the bottom of a 10" springform pan.

In a large mixer bowl, beat cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla until smooth. Add eggs and beat until combined.

Stir in chocolate chips and marshmallows. Pour over crust. Bake at 325 degrees F. for 40 to 45 minutes, until centre is almost set.

Remove cheesecake from oven and sprinkle marshmallows over top. Return to the oven and bake another 4 to 6 minutes, until the marshmallows are puffed.

Melt chocolate chips and butter together. Drizzle over the marshmallows.

Let cool to room temperature and then refrigerate overnight.
