S'mores Cheesecake

On Christmas Eve, as we all were finishing our last tamales, it occurred to Little E that no one had thought about a dessert. There is no worse tragedy than a dessert-less holiday meal in her mind so dinner quickly transformed into a brainstorming session. Collectively we listed the various ingredients we had in the kitchen and it became immediately apparent what had to be made: a S'mores Cheesecake. 

I am quite adept at figuring out how to make a recipe better, but that is only if I have a recipe to begin with. Little E, on the other hand, has a gift. She can just make things up as she goes along and it almost always results in something delicious. For example, this last minute S'mores Cheesecake. 
The one problem with her method is that the only recipe I can give you is mix some tofutti cream cheese with failed pomegranate chocolate truffles, pour into a graham cracker crust, and cover with marshmallows. Next time I'll make her write her process down so I have something a bit more concrete than a recipe that sounds like it should belong in The Biggest Cookie in the World.
