Our very first post! We’re very rapidly approaching the one-year anniversary of this blog, so here’s a throwback post to the very beginning!
Who doesn’t love s’mores made over a campfire?? This is the same idea, only in a rich, creamy pie version. Totally yummy and super decadent! The chocolate pie itself would be delicious on it’s own, but the marshmallow topping makes it even better.
Makes one 9 1/2 inch pie.
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
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!
