Smores Cheesecake

FOR CRUST

  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus room-temperature butter for pan
  • 12 graham crackers (3-by-5 inch)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt

FOR FILLING

  • 2 1/2 pounds bar cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon fine grated lemon zest and juice
  • 1/4 cup semi sweet choolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Topping
  • 1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows or enough to cover the top of the cheese cake
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Make crust: Butter a 9-by-3-inch springform pan. In a food processor, pulse graham crackers until fine crumbs form; add melted butter, sugar, and salt, and pulse to combine. Press crumb mixture into bottom and about 1 inch up side of pan. Bake until set, 12 to 15 minutes; let cool on a wire rack. Reduce oven to 325 degrees.
  • Set a kettle of water to boil. Make filling: Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese on medium until fluffy, scraping down side of bowl. Gradually add sugar, beating until fluffy. Beat in lemon zest and juice, and salt. Beat in eggs, one at a time, scraping down side of bowl after each addition. Beat in sour cream.
  • Wrap bottom half of pan in foil. Pour in filling; place in a roasting pan. Pour in boiling water to come halfway up side of springform. Bake until just set in center, about 1 3/4 hours. Remove pan from water; let cool 20 minutes. Run a paring knife around edge; let cool completely. Cover; chill overnight before serving. Add the marshmallows completely over the top of the cheesecake, put the oven on broil, and toast the marshmallows until golden brown 20 to 30 seconds – this goes pretty fast! drizzle melted chocolate all over the top! slice and enjoy!
