S’More Pie

I made a S’More Pie.

It was pretty darn tasty if I do say so myself!

It was my Mom’s Birthday yesterday, but we celebrated her last weekend up in WI with family, food, drinks and this pie.

The chocolate is rich and sweet but the fluffy light marshmallow and salty sweet crust help balance it out perfectly. Just like a real campfire S’More.

For the past few years I have always brought a variety of cupcakes from different places in Chicago (Molly’s is my favorite, followed closely by Sweet Mandy B’s) up to Wisconsin for my Mom’s birthday. This year I  decided to mix things up a bit and make her a pie instead. I always get nervous when I make pies, cakes or desserts for people for their birthday’s. So much pressure to make something they will like! I think she liked it….although Mom’s are always supportive and even if she hated it I’m sure she would pretend to love it 😛

This pie is relatively easy and looks super fun! You could do any type of chocolate for the filling but the darker/less sweet the better! I think milk chocolate would be a little bit overwhelming.

For some reason I am always attracted to s’more recipes. (Not too surprising, s’mores are amazing and anything with chocolate, graham and marshmallow is delicious!)

Here is a list of the S’More recipes I have blogged about in the past:

S’Mores Bars

Gooey White S’more Cake Bars

Pretzel S’more Crunch Bars

S’More Blondies

S’Mores Cupcakes

If you don’t like this pie…well, you’re crazy. But there are plenty of other s’more recipes you could try too! Have a great weekend. Happy Friday, friends!!!!!!

S'More Pie

  • Difficulty: Medium
  • Print

Serves 8-12 (depending on slice size)

Ingredients:

For the Crust:

6 1/2 Ounces Graham Crackers, finely ground (12 whole crackers)

5 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Melted

1/4 Cup Sugar

1/8 Teaspoon Salt

(or one 9 inch pre-made graham crust)

For the Filling:

7 Ounces Bittersweet Chocolate (not more than 70% cacao) Finely Chopped

1 Cup Heavy Cream

1 Large Egg, Room Temp

For Marshmallow Topping:

5 Egg Whites

1 1/2 Cups Granulated Sugar

Directions:

For the Crust:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pulse graham crackers in a food processor until small crumbles. Add sugar, butter and salt and mix until well combined.

Firmly press crumb mixture into the bottom of and up sides of a 9 inch  pie dish. Bake until crust is fragrant and edges are golden, about 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool completely.

For Chocolate Filling:

Place  chopped chocolate in a large bowl.

Bring heavy cream to a boil in a heavy saucepan and pour it over the chocolate. Let sit about one minuted and then whisk with egg and a pinch of salt until just combined.

Pour into prepared pie crust and cover edges of crust with foil so they don’t burn.

Bake in oven for 20 minutes, or until the chocolate is mostly set and barely jiggly in the middle.

Remove from oven and let cool completely.

For the Marshmallow Topping:

Combine egg whites and sugar in a glass bowl and place over a small saucepan of boiling water. Whisk continuously until temperature reaches 160 degrees.

Once desired temp is reached, place mixture into a bowl mixture fitted with the whisk attachment and beat on med-high for about 8-10 minutes, or until gentile peaks form.

Spread marshmallow topping over pie once cooled and use a brulee or kitchen torch to toast marshmallow (you could also place under a broiler and watch very carefully!

Serve pie with a tall glass of milk at room temperature.

NOTES: You can refrigerate or freeze pie, just let the pie warm up to room temp before serving.

This recipe was adapted slightly from the just a taste blog.
