  • 1
    Pulse Golden Graham cereal™ or graham crackers in a food processor until they are in a coarse meal. Then stir with other crust ingredients.
  • 2
    Pack crust into a springform pan. Use a measuring cup to pack it in to make sure the crust is evenly packed around the edges. Bake the crust at 350°F for 12 minutes. Then let cool.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, combine cream cheese, sugar, and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl with a hand mixer or in the bowl for a stand mixer. Combine until smooth.
  • 4
    Add eggs to the filling and stir to combine. Then stir in melted, but not hot chocolate. I recommend just melting the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second bursts, stirring after each burst.
  • 5
    Finally, add heavy cream and mix well until mixture is smooth.
  • 6
    Pour mixture into crust and bake at 325°F for 55-60 minutes until just set.
  • 7
    Turn off your oven, crack the oven door, and let the cheesecake cool slowly in the oven for an hour.
  • 8
    Remove cheesecake and transfer to fridge to cool completely. Let it cool for at least 3-4 hours.
  • 9
    Meanwhile, add all the topping ingredients to a large mixing bowl except for the marshmallows. Heat the bowl over a pot of boiling water and whisk the ingredients until they are well combined and starting to turn silky.
  • 10
    Cut marshmallows into quarters and add them to the topping. Let them melt slowly and whisk constantly as they melt. Once the marshmallows are melted, beat the topping furiously for 4-5 minutes until the mixture holds stiff peaks.
  • 11
    Remove the cheesecake from the springform pan and top with the marshmallow topping. Work quickly at this point or the topping will solidify.
  • 12
    Turn your broiler on high and broil the cheesecake for 60-90 seconds until the topping is just starting to brown. Be careful as it will burn quickly.
  • 13
    Remove cheesecake once the topping is lightly browned and let it cool for a minute. Then slice and serve!

More About This Recipe
  • Seriously, who doesn’t love a good s’more? They’re one of the best things on the planet. But: There are two issues. First, you need a fire. Second, they are messy. Turns out that the s’more ingredients (graham crackers/chocolate/marshmallows) go equally well together in my S’more Cheesecake. It’s actually an easy cheesecake to make since it doesn’t require any fancy water baths. Most importantly, anyone with a broiler in their oven can make the marshmallow topping perfectly toasted! The marshmallow topping might look intimidating, but it’s pretty straightforward. Basically, it’s a cheater’s meringue. Be careful that the topping doesn’t get too hot, as it might cook the eggs. This is a show-stopping dessert and definitely classes up some traditional campfire eats.
