Mini S'mores Cheesecake / #NationalCheesecakeDay

Welcome to #NationalCheesecakeDay! If you are like me, you probably did not know there is such a tasty day! But there is, and I am celebrating today with some blogger friends. We are sharing yummy, delectable cheesecake desserts, that you will want to make!

You will love these Mini S'mores Cheesecakes! They are creamy and bursting with flavor. Crushed chocolate graham crackers are the base for these mini cakes. Cream cheese filling stuffed full of mini marshmallows and chocolate pieces fill the middle of the cakes and they are topped off with melted chocolate, flame licked marshmallows and chocolate. 

Make these anytime for a great dessert to serve to family and friends! By the way, these cheesecakes are baked in an air fryer! I have also included oven times. 


 Mini S'mores Cheesecakes 

     1 cup crushed chocolate graham crackers

     8 tablespoons melted Butter

     12 ounces Cream Cheese (softened)

     1/3 cup Sugar

     1/4 cup Heavy Whipping Cream

     2 1/2 teaspoons Corn Starch

     2 Eggs

     1 Egg Yolk

     2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

     2 cups Mini Marshmallows

      5 Chocolate Bars (1.55 oz each)




Place the graham crackers in a plastic zip lock bag and crush them with a rolling pin until they are finely crushed. A food processor will work also.


Add the crushed graham crackers to a bowl and stir in the melted butter. Mix thoroughly. Spoon the chocolate into the mini cups and press the cracker mix into the mold. Refrigerate until they are ready to fill.





Chop the marshmallows in half.


                                                                                  
                                        Chop a chocolate bar in pieces. 
                      



In a medium bowl, mix together the softened cream cheese, sugar, whipping cream, corn starch, eggs, egg yolk and vanilla extract. Mix until creamy and smooth. 


Mix the chocolate and the marshmallows into the cream cheese mix.



Bake in the air fryer at 350 degrees for 5-6 minutes. All air fryers are different, so I would suggest checking at 4 minutes of cooking time.
Remove from heat and let cool completely. If baking in an oven I suggest 350 degrees for approximately 8-10 minutes.


Melt one of the chocolate bars in the microwave or on the stove top. Spread some of the chocolate on top of each cheesecake. 


Cut a chocolate bar into small pieces cutting along the separation lines that are molded into the bar. Place one chocolate piece into the back top of each cheesecake. 
Place 5 or so mini marshmallows on top of the chocolate, which should still be wet.


Drizzle some melted chocolate over the marshmallows.


Go through the cheesecake and add just a little bit of a touch of brown or black from a kitchen torch or lighter to the marshmallows to give them that campfire look!
