Chocolates and Marshmallows what could be better? Sandwich them together between two crisp graham crackers perfect over a camp fire. Not that this scene remind me of my childhood. I just remember watching a movie where the characters are toasting their marshmallows over a camp fire and exchanging scary stores, I knew I want to be a girl scout and personally have a camping experience. I was so excited when I found out that our school has a girl scout club though my camping dream quickly popped when I found out that we don't exactly get to go camping in the woods only at the school's roof top because the school administrators were afraid that something bad might happen if we actually went camping.
My love affair with s'mores didn't end there, I used to microwave a small bowlful of marshmallows and take it out of the microwave when they are all puffy and scrapped them out of the bowl to sheets of graham crackers and put blocks of chocolate candy and gobble it up! I was gooey, sticky and messy but oh so satisfying. As I got older when I was allowed to use a match stick I used to light up a candle and toast my marshmallows there. Have no idea if it was healthy or food safe but I was a kid then trying to satisfy my sweet tooth and food safety was the last thing from my mind.
Now that I'm on my 20's S'mores still got my attention, when I stumbled upon S'MORES PIE, my eyes grew bigger and could not believe what I'm seeing in my computer screen. As it finally sink in, I quickly printed out the recipe and made it. Even the absence of large marshmallows, nothing stopped me from making these.

- 1 3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1 1/4 sticks butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 325.
- Add melted butter and graham cracker crumbs together until a crust forms. Press in to a 9 inch pie plate.
for chocolate filling
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup milk
- 10 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 bag of large marshmallows
- Combine milk and heavy cream in a saucepan and heat over low heat. Watch carefully and once it begins to simmer, remove from heat and add in chocolate. Stir with a spatula until chocolate is melted, then whisk in sugar and salt. In a separate bowl, lightly beat the 2 eggs. Slowly add eggs to chocolate mixture while whisking.
- Pour chocolate filling in to graham crust. Tyler’s directions call for the filling to be baked for 15-20 minutes, but mine needed about 30-35. Pay attention and check every 5-10 minutes after 20 minutes pass. One the chocolate is no longer liquid, remove the tart and top with as many large marshmallows as you can fit. I heated my broiled on low, and stuck the pie back in for 2 minutes so the top could get golden. The other option is to just place it back in the oven for a few minutes until they melt or use a kitchen torch.
- Let cool then refrigerate for 1-2 hours before cutting. Spray a knife with non-stick spray before slicing. If it is messy, just lift pieces out with a spoon. It’s just as delicious!
