S’Mores Pie

For the last 2 years I’ve placed in our community’s non-fruit pie making contest. So far I’ve made a Snickers Pie and a Twix Bar Cheesecake Pie so this year I thought that I would make a pie out of one of my favorite things EVER! A S’More. I made a S’Mores Pie.

Here’s me with the pie.

The crust is made of graham crackers, butter, and mini chocolate chips. In this photo, I am pressing it into the pie pan.

I think I look like a mix between George Washington and Dumbo!!!

Yummm!!!

The pie starts out kind of liquidy but it thickens up  in the end.

When it’s in the oven, the marshmallows start to bloat.

Now I’m just waiting for the results!

Apparently, the judges liked my pie because I got 3rd place. I think I would have gotten 1st if I served it warm because of the gooey marshmallows.  Thanks to How Sweet It Is for the inspiration for this pie.

And even a kid can make it… Like Me!

S'Mores Pie

Yield: One 9-inch pie

Prep Time: 30 min

Cook Time: 30 min

Your favorite campfire snack in a PIE!

Ingredients:

Crust:
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
8 tablespoons (1 stick) salted butter, melted
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Filling:
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
3/4 cup whole milk
10 ounces Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bars, chopped
pinch of salt
2 large eggs, at room temperature
2 cups mini marshmallows

Directions:

1. Prepare the crust: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a medium mixing bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs and butter until evenly coated. Stir in chocolate chips. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool.

2. Prepare the filling: In a medium saucepan, whisk together the cream and milk. Warm over medium-low heat. Add in chocolate and stir until the chocolate has melted. Add a pinch of salt. Whisk the mixture together until it is smooth and combined well. Set the chocolate mixture aside to cool for 15 minutes. In a medium bowl, whisk the 2 eggs. Whisking those eggs constantly, add a spoonful of the chocolate mixture. Still whisking, add another spoonful. Keep doing this with several spoonfuls until you’ve gently warmed up your eggs. At this point, you can add the rest of the chocolate mixture and whisk it all together. Pour the filling into the cooled crust. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until the chocolate filling is set and does not jiggle when the pie pan is lightly shaken. Check the pie at 20 minutes- if the edges of the crust are browning too quickly, lightly tent a piece of foil over the top of the pie (not touching the filling), or set a pie crust shield on top of the pie. Remove from the oven when filling is set.

3. Turn oven to the broil setting. Place the pie on the center rack and lightly toast the marshmallows- no longer than 2 to 3 minutes. Watch the pie closely as those marshmallows can turn from toasted to burnt in a matter of seconds.

4. If you serve it immediately, it will be gooey and warm. If you chill the pie for a while, it will have a chance to set and will be easier to cut. Spray a knife with nonstick spray before slicing through the marshmallows. Slices should be heated up slightly for best results.
