“Cheesecake S’mores” Recipe
Slices of your favorite cheesecake – we recommend the following flavors:

Hershey’s® Milk Chocolate Bars
Honey Maid® Graham Crackers
Place the cheesecake slices into the freezer for several hours until they are “deeply
Remove the deeply chilled slices of cheesecake from the freezer and cut into squares
approximately ¼” thick. Set aside.
Place 3 squares of Hershey’s® Milk Chocolate onto a Graham Cracker square.
Use a crème brulée torch to carefully warm the Milk Chocolate until it starts to get
“shiny” across the top (approximately 15 seconds.) (If you do not have a crème brulée
torch microwave for a few seconds).
Cut a Jumbo Marshmallow into 1/3’s and place one of the 1/3’s (cut side “up”) on top of
the warmed Milk Chocolate.
Use a crème brulée torch to carefully toast the Marshmallow until it turns a nice toasted
brown color (approximately 30 seconds.) Note: Use a small container lid to “fan out”
the flame when the Marshmallow reaches the ideal color. (If you do not have a crème
brulée torch microwave for a few seconds).
Place the deeply chilled Cheesecake square directly onto the toasted Marshmallow and
immediately top with another Graham Cracker square.
