Alright, I’ll admit it… I’m a s’mores addict. I’d forgotten how much I love them until I went camping overnight with my colleagues and we, being the perfectly mature adults, immediately declared “S’MORE STUFF!!!!”
And in deference to the awesome movie, The Sandlot, I said, “You’re killing me, Smalls!”
Anyway… now that camping season is over in the northeast (well, at least for me), I wanted to have another chance at tasting the awesome, gooey, stickiness of s’mores without freaking out my fiance when I light a small fire in our backyard. There’s only just so much the poor man can take, after all.
At any rate, adapted from a recipe Tasty Kitchen, is the most awesome S’mores Pie! Try to actually let it cool before you cut into it, otherwise you’ll have a gooey mess.
Not that it’s necessarily a bad thing. 😉
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 stick butter, softened
1 large egg
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Dash of salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup all purpose flour
Container of marshmallow creme (aka: marshmallow fluff) – 7 oz.
1 cup mini marshmallows
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
6 milk chocolate bars, unwrapped (clearly!)
Preheat your oven to 350F and spray a 9″ pie dish with nonstick spray.
In a bowl, combine the butter, egg, sugar, vanilla, baking powder, and salt until fluffy. Add the flour and graham cracker crumbs and form a dough ball. Divide the dough in half. Press one half of the d
ough into the bottom and sides of the pie dish and save the other half for later.
Spray a rubber spatula with nonstick spray (I discovered this helped) and spread the marshmallow creme in the bottom of your graham cracker crust. Break apart the chocolate bars into relatively even sized pieces and spread them on the top of the marshmallow creme. Then spread out the mini marshmallows on top of the chocolate. Take the other half of your graham cracker dough and break it apart on top of the mini marshmallows. Pat it down to form some semblance of a crust. You’ll find that the marshmallows show through. This is a good thing! They’ll toast up and be awesome. Next, sprinkle the chocolate chips on top.
Place the pie in the oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely before cutting.
Now go savor a slice of childhood.
