    Well this is an odd one. If you're expecting something rich and decadent and smores like this is not it. It does look nice, i used candy corn marshmallows as its october. The texture of this is rather gelatinous...ish and the flavor is surprisingly non existant given the ingredients. Also, mine puffed like a souffle in the oven...which was alarming.

    I made this for a BBQ & had trouble right away with the graham crust, too much crackers for the amount of butter, added another Tablespoon & continued. After the overnight chill when I took the rim off of the springform pan most of the crumbs crumbled around the bottom of the plate, not a good look ! The cheesecake part was wonderful but the chocolate layer was just to thick. I'm going to make this again but drop the crumbs down to 1 1/2 cups, leave the butter at 6 T & reduce the chocolate by half. Hope this help's anyone making this for the first time.

    thisonebetterwork - besides the marshmallow cream, the recipe also calls for 1/4 cup sugar

    thisonebetterwork - The sugar in this recipe comes from the marshmallow creme. No added sugar is needed in the base.Sue StetzelOnline Community Manager

    My cheesecake is in the oven right now as I was pouring the batter in the pan I tasted it and it had no sweet taste to it... Wondering if you forgot to put the sugar on the list of ingredients?? Because this was an expensive recipe!!! Was the sugar missed????

    Excellent recipe--came out just like the picture and was easy to make. One of the best textured cheesecakes I have made.

    Holy cow! This is awesome cheesecake! It was a huge hit at a recent pot luck and one I will definitely make again. It was so rich and creamy.

    What's not to love? Cheesecake and smores combined into one dessert!!! This will become one of my go-to cheesecake recipes!!! Could change the crust and use chocolate graham cracker crumbs to add more chocolate taste!
