S’mores Pie

S'mores PieAlright, 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. ūüėČ

 

 

S’MORES PIE

Ingredients:

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.
