Faux Fruity Marshmallow Cheesecake

I could be totally off base, but I imagine the kiddos might like this dessert. It is not over powering-ly sweet, but it hits the spot if you want to whip up something easy with the kids.

Fruity Marshmallow Cheesecake

1/2 (10.5 ounce) package rainbow colored miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup milk
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 egg yolk
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 cup heavy cream
1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust

In a saucepan on low heat, combine marshmallows and milk. Cook until marshmallows are melted, and mixture starts to boil. Remove from heat.

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Stir in egg yolk. Fold in 1/3 of the melted marshmallow mixture, then quickly fold in remaining marshmallow until no streaks remain. Stir in lemon juice.
In a large bowl, beat cream until soft peaks form. Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture until no streaks remain. Spread into graham crust. Refrigerate for 3 hours. Recipe from Allrecipes.com
