S’mores Pie

We came across this S’mores Pie recipe while doing research on French macarons, which were to die for, but that’s another post.

Who doesn’t love s’mores made over a campfire?? This is the same idea, only in a rich, creamy pie version.

By the way, the recipe makes one pie, however we doubled it (cause we’re piggy that way!), so don’t be confused when you see two pies in some of the pictures!

Okay, so let’s get started~

Preheat your oven to 350*.

To make the crust, mix crushed graham crackers and melted butter together in your pie dish. Mix until combined and press firmly into the pie plate while working the crumbs up the side of the dish.

Now let’s get started on the good stuff-

Place both types of chocolate chips and butter in a heat-safe bowl. Heat the heavy cream in a saucepan until it simmers, pour the hot cream over the chocolate chips and butter, and whisk until melted and combined.

Add whole eggs and egg yolk along with the vanilla. And mix until well combined.

Pour chocolate mixture into pie crust and bake 20-25 minutes until filling is set and toothpick comes out clean. I used a metal crust protector to keep the edge of the crust from getting too dark.

Place pie in the refrigerator for a minimum of 1-2 hours before starting the marshmallow topping.

To prepare the marshmallow topping place egg whites, corn syrup, salt, vanilla, and cream of tartar in a bowl, and whip on high until stiff peaks form.

Slowly add sugar and mix well.

Now you’re ready to add the topping to the pie, creating decorative peaks with a spatula as you go.

If you’re not serving the pie right away, it can be refrigerated until ready to serve.

The last step is toasting the marshmallow topping (“toasting” is the key word- not burning- be careful!). It took 1 minute in my oven to achieve the desired toasted effect, so watch it carefully. Remove from oven and serve immediately.

Yum!! Dig in!

While I felt this s’mores pie was perfect as is, there are a few variations that you could make, such as: using a chocolate cookie crumb crust, or no gooey, gaggy marshmallow topping (as my friend Laura calls it), she’s wrong by the way, it was delicious! The chocolate filling had a good texture and the combination of the two types of chocolate made it really rich and a great go-to chocolate pie filling recipe.

For the crust:

  • 2 cups of finely ground graham crackers (about 15-16)
  • 6 Tbsp melted butter

For the filling:

  • 3/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup of milk chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla

For the topping:

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 2 Tbsp sugar

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350*. Grind graham crackers in food processor until they are crushed into a fine crumb. Place graham cracker crumbs into pie plate, add the melted butter. Mix well until combined. Press crumbs to bottom and side of pan with the palm of your hand until evenly distributed.

Place chocolate chips and butter into a heat-safe bowl. Heat heavy cream in a sauce pan until it simmers, pour hot cream over the chocolate chips and butter, and whisk until melted and combined. Add whole eggs and egg yolk and mix until combined add vanilla, mix well.

Pour chocolate mixture into pie crust and bake 20-25 minutes until pie filling is set and a toothpick comes out clean.

Place pie in the refrigerator for a minimum of 1-2 hours before starting the marshmallow topping.

To prepare the marshmallow topping place egg whites, corn syrup, salt, vanilla, and cream of tartar in a bowl, and whip on high until stiff peaks form. Slowly add sugar and mix well.

Add the topping to the pie, creating decorative peaks with a spatula as you go.

Place pie under broiler for 1-2 minutes until marshmallow topping is toasted and golden brown. Watch carefully- the marshmallow burns quickly.

Serve immediately, store leftovers in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
