A dear friend of mine tagged me on a S’mores post on Facebook after knowing that I have quite an obsession with S’mores (Check out my S’mores Milo Brownie, I swear its the best of both world!). Quite frankly, there is something very appealing about S’mores! That melted chocolate and gooey toasted marshmallow, sandwiched between crunchy and slightly salty graham cracker… Mmmmmm I’m salivating as I’m writing this post! Honestly, if you do not know what S’mores is… you are missing out! Get yourself some S’mores and start living baby!
This cheesecake was inspired by a recipe from Bakerita. I was looking at pictures of S’mores cakes and thought this was really appealing! It was made out of Graham crust layered with marshmallows, Nutella, cheesecake batter with chocolate chips & marshmallows, then topped with toasted marshmallows, Hershey’s bar, graham bits, and drizzled with home-made salted caramel sauce. I made one, in celebration of Teachers’ day. I made it for the teachers at school, as a “Thank You” for all their hard-work. It’s not easy being an educator, it is draining, but at the same time, fulfilling. They start their day very early 5.30 in the morning, and very often do not go back home till late. Work doesn’t stop when they get home, they have to grade papers, write recommendation letters, and plan for the next lesson. Amidst all that, they have to juggle their own personal life, parenting, and/or taking care of their parents. So a little cheesecake to fill their belly is nothing. 🙂
