S'mores Pie

Sunday, August 9, 2015

S'more are a summer time camping or backyard treat that never go out of style. I mean how can you go wrong with toasted-gooey marshmallow, milk chocolate and buttery graham crackers!?

This s'mores pie has all the great elements of a traditional s'more, but without the sticky mess and need for a camp fire!

S'mores Pie
{yield: 8 servings}

1 ½ cups milk chocolate chips
1 cup heavy cream
1 egg
¼ Kosher salt
1 8 inch pre-made graham cracker crust
30 large marshmallows

Start by pre-heating your over to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, add the milk chocolate chips and set aside. Heat the heavy cream in a small sauce pan over medium heat until scalded, then pour over the chocolate chips and allow to sit for a couple minutes.

With a spatula or whisk, combine the milk chocolate chips and heavy cream to create a smooth and silky ganache and before adding the egg it needs to be tempered. Take a couple tablespoons of the ganache and mix into the egg.  Once tempered, add the egg and ¼ teaspoon of salt to the ganache and mix until smooth.

Pour the chocolate into the pre-made graham cracker pie shell and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the edges are set and the center is slightly jiggly.

Remove pie from the oven and top with marshmallows; lightly press each marshmallow into the chocolate base making sure to keep them close together.

Place pie back into the oven, about 6 inches away from the broiler. Now this part is very important!!!! Do not walk away or close the over door...you will not be happy with the end result. Keep a very close eye on the marshmallows and remove once they are golden brown and puffed.

Allow the pie to cool slightly and set before serving. If you are not going to serve this pie right away and it has cooled completely, place each slice in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds to allow the marshmallows to soften.
