Smores Pie


Nothing says summer like smores! So for Independence Day, Eric made us a smores pie. I can't even begin to tell you how amazing this dessert is. Seriously, no words would do this pie justice. And the aromas this dessert gives off--the chocolate baking, the marshmallow roasting--absolutely mouthwatering. And to make this recipe even more enticing: it's fairly simple to make. The hardest part is waiting for it to cool so you can take a bite! Eric is so proud of his creation--you should see the grin on his face!

Adapted from here.

1 store-bought graham cracker pie crust
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup heavy cream
1 egg, room temperature
pinch of salt
7-ounce (a little less than a cup) marshmallow fluff

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Pour the chocolate chips in a large bowl. In a heavy saucepan bring heavy cream to a boil. Pour the cream over the chocolate chips and let it sit for 1 minute.

Whisk the chocolate and cream together until it's well combined and smooth. Add the egg and a pinch of salt to the mixture and whisk until well incorporated. Pour the chocolate mixture into the pie crust.

Cover the edges of the pie crust with foil and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the chocolate is almost set--the center should be a little bit jiggly.

Place the pie on a rack and allow to cool for about one hour.

Add the marshmallow fluff on top of the chocolate layer and smooth with a spatula. Set the oven to broil and place the pie back in the oven for just 2 or 3 minutes or until the top of the fluff turns a golden brown.

Allow pie to cool for about ten minutes before serving.

Under the broiler. It smells just like marshmallows roasting on a fire. Taste just like them too!

Oh so good.
