The Stuff from 1985 proves that anything can be a killer…

When it comes to the killer in horror films, we’ve seen it all – masked maniacs, reanimated corpses, werewolves, and other creatures of the night. But one film really changed the game by making the killer a food item…The Stuff, from 1985.

When a mysterious, marshmallow-y goo is discovered bubbling from the earth, the food industry packages it up, and mass markets it to consumers as The Stuff without even checking to see if it’s safe for consumption. Needless to say, it turns out The Stuff actually consumes the consumer, transforming them into a zombie-like state.

While my recipe for The Stuff Marshmallow Cheesecake isn’t by any means healthy, I can at least promise you it won’t consume your brain and eat you alive from the inside out!

“The Stuff” Marshmallow Cheesecake Recipe

    What You Need:

    Cheesecake Ingredients

    • 5 oz marshmallows (about 20 large)
    • 1/3 C milk
    • 8 oz of cream cheese (softened to room temperature)
    • 2 t. vanilla extract
    • 6 oz of whipped topping

    Crust Ingredients

    • 1 C crushed chocolate chip cookies
    • 2 oz melted butter (1/2 a stick)

    What To Do:

    For the Containers


    To prepare your containers, download and print out the template. Cut out the pieces and attach to the cups with tape or glue. Set aside while you prepare the crust.

    For the Crust


    Using a rolling pin or food processor, crush the cookies. Add in the melted butter and mix until it reaches the consistency of wet sand. Divide the mixture evenly between the four cups. Press into the bottom, and set aside.

    For the Cheesecake


    In a saucepan, combine the marshmallows and milk over low heat, until melted and smooth. Remove from heat.

    In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the cream cheese and vanilla just until combined. Then add in the marshmallow mixture and beat for about 3 minutes, just until the mixture is fluffy. Then carefully fold in the whipped topping.

    Evenly divide the mixture into the cups, and allow to chill in the icebox for at least 1 hour. Top with additional whipped topping, if desired.

    Then eat it…before it eats you!
