S'mores Cheesecake Bars

1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
3 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup marshmallow cream
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
4 ounces milk chocolate, melted
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8x8-inch baking dish with foil; coat with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, stir together graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter until well combined; pat into bottom of baking dish. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

In a medium bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together cream cheese and marshmallow cream until fluffy - about 1 minute. Beat in cocoa powder, vanilla and eggs until combined - about 1 minute. Stir in melted chocolate until combined. Pour filling over crust, and bake for 25-30 minutes or until set, and no longer wobbly. Remove from oven.

Preheat oven broiler. Evenly top cheesecake with mini marshmallows. Broil for a few seconds until marshmallows start to brown. Cool on a wire rack (drizzle with additional melted chocolate, if desired). Place in the refrigerator or freezer until well chilled - about an hour or two. Lift out foil from dish and slice cheesecake into bars.

Makes 12 big bars
