The Easiest S’mores Pie

Can we get s’more of this delicious pie? Campfire jokes aside, this easy tart is everything we could ever want and more. A classic graham cracker crust, rich and creamy chocolate and toasted marshmallows have to make this the easiest pie ever. And while its facile is no surprise, we hope that doesn’t take away from how amazingly delicious it is. Perhaps our favorite part of this pie is how easy it is to tweak it to your liking. More of a milk chocolate person? Ditch the semisweet and go all in. Like your cocoa with bite? Try a half dark, half semi sweet combo and throw in a pinch of cayenne. Not in love with the marshmallow idea? Take it up a notch by whipping up a meringue to top and toast. However you like it, there’s a way to make it. Learn how to whip up this easy dessert recipe with our online cooking certificate host in this video.

Easiest S’mores Pie

Crust Ingredients
11 graham cracker sheets
7 tbsp butter, unsalted and melted
1 pinch salt

Filling Ingredients
6 oz semisweet chocolate, roughly chopped
6 oz milk chocolate, roughly chopped
2 ½ tbsp butter, unsalted and diced into 1 inch cubes
2 tbsp sugar
2/3 cup heavy cream
1 pinch of salt
Marshmallows for garnish

This s'mores pie can be whipped up in less than 30 minutes.

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 375F. Using a food processor, pulse graham crackers until finely chopped. Add in the melted butter and pulse a couple more times until mixed. Firmly press mixture to bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Bake for about 8-10 minutes. Remove and let cool completely before adding filling.

2. In a large mixing bowl, add in the chopped chocolate, butter and pinch of salt. In a saucepan, heat cream and sugar over medium low heat until it just begins to simmer. Pour cream into chocolate and mix until all the chocolate is thoroughly melted. Pour chocolate mixture into chilled pie crust. Cover with tinfoil and let chill for about an hour.

3. When pie is ready to be served, top chocolate with marshmallows, firmly planting them in the filling. Fill the entire pie with marshmallows. Place under oven broiler for approximately 30 seconds or until marshmallows have browned. A kitchen torch can also be used in lieu of the broiler.

4. Serve!

You can top the chocolate with marshmallows or a homemade meringue.
