S'mores Cheesecake Bars

S'mores Cheesecake Bars

1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
3 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup marshmallow cream
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
4 ounces milk chocolate, melted
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8x8-inch baking dish with foil; coat with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, stir together graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter until well combined; pat into bottom of baking dish. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

In a medium bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together cream cheese and marshmallow cream until fluffy - about 1 minute. Beat in cocoa powder, vanilla and eggs until combined - about 1 minute. Stir in melted chocolate until combined. Pour filling over crust, and bake for 25-30 minutes or until set, and no longer wobbly. Remove from oven.

Preheat oven broiler. Evenly top cheesecake with mini marshmallows. Broil for a few seconds until marshmallows start to brown. Cool on a wire rack (drizzle with additional melted chocolate, if desired). Place in the refrigerator or freezer until well chilled - about an hour or two. Lift out foil from dish and slice cheesecake into bars.

  4. I'm always cold too - I was even blue when I came out of the womb. Poor circulation, always :) Oh and it's 14°F here, so THAT doesn't help. Brr!! Stay warm.

    Perfect WARM campfire-esque treat there!

  5. Delicious! When I hear the word s'mores I can't help but think of The Sand Lot. Man I love that movie. Sorry totally off topic. I also have to agree with you about the old men fashion sense. They are just so adorable :)

  6. Those are such stunningly *edible* photos! The marshmallows are just the perfect amount of toasty on top. I love them!

    Keep warm, Emily!!

  7. Oh my gosh, I love flannel shirts and funky old man hats. Next time, just ask for their hats and shirts instead of a tip...I dare ya.

    I'm always cold too. It's the temps drop below 50, I wear long underwear, and my brother jokes that I should just strap a space heater to myself. I'm all about the artificial sources of heat.

    S'mores Bars...amazing.
    Off to vote for you now. :)

  10. OO these look yummy--s'mores make me think of summer, which I desperately need right about now! I once read that if you low on iron it can contribute to being cold, because I always used to be but now I take folic acid and I rarely get freezing anymore. Who knows! :-)

  11. Those look amazing! You always create the best treats!

  12. I eat those darn gummy vitamins like candy too!!
    Maybe you're not getting enough protein? I dunno? I think I read that somewhere.
    Great bars though.

  13. These look yummy!! I'm still thinking about your Oreo Cream cheese brownies that I saw last night. Unfortunately I have no Oreos in my house at the moment and I'm not going grocery shopping till Tuesday so . . .

    Voted for you! Who can turn down mac and cheese balls?

  17. okay i can totally empathize with ALWAYS being cold. it's terrible! i was in cleveland the past few days and it was sickeningly cold. i was miserable!

    also, i love LOVE love gummie vitamins :)

  18. Oh my. I wish you hadn't invented that! I'm afraid I'm going to have to make them and then I will end up eating most of them myself!

    ReplyDelete
  19. These look incredible. I love to see and try the recipes you have invented. You are amazingly talented! Best of luck on the appetizer contest!

  20. I bought some of those gummie vitamins today, and was so excited about them even though they cost an arm and a leg! So I ate one, and it was good, and then came the taste it leaves in your mouth. Do you get that taste? It's weird, and I have to drink something afterwards to get it out! Hmm maybe it's just me.

    I also am freezing all the time! I bought some really good socks called Smartwool and they are amazing at keeping my feet warm. You should try them!

  24. i, too, am always cold. ny is clearly not where i need to reside. great bars, of course--anything topped with toasted marshmallow is bound to strike a chord with me.
    and by the way, my little brother (he's 24) asked for an old-man hat for christmas. i guess he knows where to turn for style guidance. :)

  25. Oh man, I'm not on facebook and can't vote :(

    Gorgeous pictures of your S'mores bars! Those marshmallows on top look so good, although I'm sure I'd burn them in the broiler if I tried to make them... :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Okay I voted for you. I wonder if I can vote with both my FB and my MySpace accounts. They look aretery-cloggingly delicious.

    This cheesecake looks pretty delicious too. I love s'mores flavored stuff.

    My grandfather had a plaid flannel shirt. It shrank in the wash too much, so he gave it to me. 15+ years after his death I still have it.

  27. I'm just like you...I'm always cold! Since I grew up in the Phoenix area, I usually blame it on that...but I think it's also bad circulation, which I don't get cause I'm active. I'd take a summer day in Phoenix over a cold weather, anytime! S'mores cheesecake? Oh my!

  28. Love the cleanness of the squares you've cut!

    I know what you mean about being cold - I'm always the cold one!

  29. I "starred" you and posted to my Facebook page. Those little bites look really, really yummy. I love white cheddar in macaroni, in fact the year I won the grand prize at Tillamook it was with a white cheddar macaroni. Hope you win!

    The s'mores bars look very decadent, too.:o)

  33. You never cease to amaze with your beautiful photos and wonderful recipes. Thanks girl!

  34. These sound AMAZING. Why have I never paired marshmallow creme with cheesecake before?

    Oh, and I'm always cold. Living in CA for seven years completely spoiled me, and now anything below 60F is cold.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Every time I read "recipe by me" I am just amazed. I couldn't even begin to put together my own recipe. Those bars look wonderful. I love the addition of the marshmallow creme...I'm addicted to that!!! I would love to try that recipe...

    ReplyDelete

  40. I've made a s'mores cheesecake but not bars. The cheesecake was really good but I'm digging your bars. Did I read marshmallow fluff in the filling? Oh, yeah!
