For the Graham Cracker Layer

  • 2 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar , packed
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter , cut into cubes and chilled
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract

For the Marshmallow Cheesecake

  • 1 egg
  • 1 jar marshmallow fluff
  • 1 block cream cheese , softened

For the Brownies

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate , chopped
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Line a 9x13” baking pan with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Make the graham cracker layer: pulse flour, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt in your food processor. Add butter and pulse until the mixture is crumbly. Whisk honey, milk, and vanilla in a separate bowl. Add to the flour mixture and pulse until dough comes together in a ball. Press into prepared pan. Chill until ready to use.
  • Make the cheesecake layer: beat egg, fluff, and cream cheese with a hand mixer. Pour over graham layer. Return to refrigerator until brownie layer is complete.
  • Make the brownies: whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and coffee. Set aside. Place butter and chocolate in a heat-proof bowl over a pot of simmering water (do not let the water touch the bowl). Stir until the butter and chocolate are melted together. Let cool for a few minutes, then whisk in eggs, one at a time. Whisk in vanilla. Add flour mixture and stir until combined. Pour over marshmallow cheesecake layer.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes until a toothpick comes out almost clean. The center will still be a little soft but you will be able to tell that the edges are done because the cheesecake that pokes through is browned. Cool completely before cutting.
