(I would like to apologize for the quality of these pictures. For some reason, this treat did not want to photograph well)
I love S'mores. The crispy, gooey toasty goodness of the marshmallows. The chocolate. The graham crackers holding the whole thing together.
I also love pie. I mean.. .c'mon... it's pie people! What's not to love?
So, it just seems like a natural idea to combine the two into one ooey, gooey, sweet delicious treat. Doesn't it? Yeah... you know it does!
I started with a pre-made graham cracker crust. Tossed in enough mini marshmallows to line the bottom and put the whole thing under the broiler until the marshmallows had that crisp, slightly over-toasted thing going on that I really like.
While that cooled a bit, I created a chocolate cream pie filling which was poured into the crust right over top of the toasted marshmallows. (I used the lazy gal's method found on the side of the Jello pudding box, but you could certainly do a from scratch filling)
Sprinkle more mini marshmallows on top. Let the whole thing set in the refrigerator for a while. Then slice and serve.
It was delicious! And yes, it really did give that yummy S'more taste in a pie! I think next time I will add some chopped chocolate bar pieces on the top also.
