So, we were supposed to go to a “salad party”, due to all of the delectable bites that we had over the past few months. So, Kim and I thought, what the heck, a S’mores Pie Salad would be the perfect addition to our Salad Party. Well, unfortunately, in the end, the Salad Party portion of the event had to be put on hold until a further timeline, but we had to bring a snack to share anyways so we just brought a S’mores Pie.
Taste wise, all I can say, is that this is essentially the convergence of a S’more with a Chocolate Chip Cookie. I don’t think it can get much better than that, right? My friend Michael recommended that we try it with whip cream, so maybe I will do that next time, although I am personally not a big whip cream fan.
Here is the lineup of the guilty ingredients.
Smashed up Graham Crackers.
Graham Cracker crust in the pie tin.
The marshmallow spread, with hershey’s chocolate, which chocolates, and topped with mini marshmallows. How could this be not a dream??? I actually ended up using only half of the chocolate that it called for as it thoroughly coated the bottom. My friends were glad of it, as they said it was already really chocolate-y.
After its cooking, it just smelled delicious. Do you think our friends would notice if it is missing a slice? Unfortunately, it needs to rest before slicing otherwise you would just have a glop of food on your plate and a catastrophe remaining in the pie tin.
This dessert, though amazingly delicious, is also very decadent. I highly suggest cutting small slices for the first serving.
- 1 stick butter, softened
- ½ cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 (7 ounce) container marshmallow creme
- 8 (1.55 ounce) Hershey's chocolate bars, unwrapped
- 1 cup marshmallows
- ¼ cups chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly spray a 9 inch pie tin with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until well combined. Stir in the egg and vanilla extract. Stir in the flour, graham crackers and baking powder and mix until well combined.
- Divide the dough in half. Press half of the dough evenly into the bottom of the pie tin. Make sure the the dough covers the sides of the tin as well. Spread the marshmallow creme over the bottom of the crust. Separate the chocolate bars into rectangles and layer them evenly over the marshmallow creme. Place marshmallows in an even layer over the chocolate rectangles.
- Place the other half of the dough in even chunks over the marshmallows, allowing some of the marshmallows to show through the top. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top of the dough. Bake the pie until the top is golden brown, about 20 minutes.
- Allow the pie to cool completely before serving.
