Although it is as hot as hot can be here in the desert, I love a roaring campfire and roasting marshmallows after the sun sets. As I thought about all the other things I love about summer, you know s’mores had to be on the list!  It’s Crazy Cooking Challenge day and this month we are making cheesecake! I don’t know about you, but I love a good cheesecake too! So, what could be better than S’mores Cheesecake! That’s all of my summer loves rolled into one! Yum!

Graham Cracker Crust

1 1/4 cup finely crushed Graham Crackers

1/4 cup melted Butter

Cheesecake Filling

24 ounces softened Cream Cheese

2/3 cup Sugar

1/2 cup Whipping Cream

5 teaspoons Cornstarch

4 Eggs

1 Egg Yolk

1/4 cup Vanilla Flavored Syrup(Torani)

2 teaspoons Vanilla

8 oz. Milk Chocolate(Callebaut)

3-4 oz. Whipping Cream

Mini Marshmallows

This is my “go to” cheesecake recipe. Well, it is if you stop 

after the Vanilla in the ingredient list. I used it to create this 

s’mores recipe by making a few tasty additions.  But, if you are

in the mood for a really good, creamy, vanilla cheesecake

make this. You won’t be disappointed. Oh, yeah, change the 

graham crackers to nilla wafers. So good!!

Combine the cream cheese, sugar, whipping cream

and cornstarch. Beat with an electric mixer till smooth.

Add eggs and the egg yolk, one at a time, beating well after

each addition.

Beat in vanilla flavoring and vanilla.

Mix together your graham crackers and butter.

Press the mixture into the bottom of your 

springform pan. Set aside.

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler set up.

Add the cream a little at a time until a desired 

smooth consistency is achieved.

Fill your springform pan with your cheesecake filling.

Leave a little room at the top for the chocolate to be added.

 Add about 3-4 spoon fulls of the melted chocolate

to your filling.

Swirl around for a pretty effect.

 Place some of the chocolate on top of the cheesecake.

Top with mini marshmallows all over.

Using a kitchen torch, roast the marshmallows.

You can roast them as much or as little as you wish.

Happy Roasting!
