WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA9) -- There is a day for just about everything, especially when it comes to food.

Today is National Cheesecake Day.

To celebrate The Cheesecake Factory is serving up the decadent dessert at half price.

Rick Osorio, from the Cheesecake Factory showed us how to prepare the restaurant's latest creation, S'mores Cheesecake.


· Slices of your favorite cheesecake -

Hershey's® Milk Chocolate Bars

· Honey Maid® Graham Crackers

· Jumbo Marshmallows


1. Place the cheesecake slices into the freezer for several hours until they are "deeply chilled."

2. Remove the deeply chilled slices of cheesecake from the freezer and cut into squares approximately ¼" thick. Set aside.

3. Place 3 squares of Hershey's® Milk Chocolate onto a Graham Cracker square.

4. 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).

5. 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.

6. 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).

7. Place the deeply chilled Cheesecake square directly onto the toasted Marshmallow and immediately top with another Graham Cracker square.

8. Bon Appetit!
