Who can resist a creamy piece of Chocolate Chip S’mores Cheesecake?

Can this cheesecake be frozen?

Yes. However, I would suggest freezing only the cheesecake portion. Wrap it well after the cheesecake has been loosened from the springform pan. Return the springform pan around the cheesecake, and freeze for up to 2 months.

When it’s time to serve the cheesecake, allow it to come to room temperature, add the chocolate ganache topping, and the toasted marshmallows.

How to store a cheesecake in the refrigerator:

Wrap this cheesecake loosely with plastic wrap or on a covered cake stand, and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

For best flavor, allow the cheesecake to come to room temperature before serving.

  • In a food processor (or in a zip-top bag with a rolling pin), crush the graham crackers for form fine crumbs.
  • Add the melted butter and sugar to the graham crumbs and mix until it resembles wet sand.
  • Pour the crumbs into the prepared springform pan and flatten into an even layer.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for approximately 10 minutes.

  • Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 60 minutes and then turn off the oven, leaving the cheesecake inside with the door open for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the cheesecake to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • To prepare the ganache, heat the heavy cream just shy of boiling in a microwave-safe dish.
  • Pour the hot heavy cream over the semi-sweet chocolate chips in a medium bowl.
  • Whisk the hot heavy cream and chocolate chips until smooth and glossy.
  • Cool slightly.
  • Pour the ganache evenly over the cooled chocolate chip cheesecake and spread it evenly over the entire top of the cheesecake, allowing it to drip down the sides.

Oh my goodness, I saw this picture on Foodgawker and just had to click it. This cake looks AMAZING, I just want to grab a fork and dig in. I've had to hid the computer screen from my kids so they don't see it, as they would want me to make it ASAP!
