This S’mores Pie recipe comes from my Mom. S’mores are my favorite food from childhood, so I was very excited to try this recipe. What sets this S’mores Pie apart is that the chocolate middle layer is my Mom’s truffle recipe and it’s velvety richness is perfect.
S’mores Pie has all the elements of Smore’s: Graham Cracker, Chocolate, and Marshmallow. I decided to make this pie in cupcake tins, but you can make it in a pie pan (which might be easier). The pie crust is made with Graham Cracker and the fluff is homemade. If you want to reduce your preparation time to about 10 minutes you can use a premade pie crust and store bought fluff or marshmallows.
If you want to be a little fancy, you can add caramel sauce…
For the Pie Crust you will need:
- 1 1/4 cup Graham Cracker Crumbs
- 3 tablespoons Sugar
- 1/2 cup melted Butter
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Then press and pack into a 9 inch pie pan. Bake for 8 minutes at 350 degrees.
For the Chocolate Layer you will need:
- 4 ounces Sweet German Chocolate, cut into pieces
- 1/2 cup Whipping Cream
- 1/4 stick Butter ( 2 tablespoons)
- 3/4 cup Powdered Sugar
- 2 Egg Yolks (save the whites for the marshmallow)
Combine chocolate, cream and butter in top of double boiler over simmering water. Add sugar and yolks and whisk until smooth. Pour into the pie crust and let chill for 2 hours.
For the Marshmallow you will need:
- 1/2 cup Light Karo Syrup
- 1/3 cup Water
- 1/3 cup Light Brown Sugar (I used Dark Brown and it made my fluff a bit dark)
- 1/4 cup Sugar
- 2 Egg Whites
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
- a pinch of Salt
Combine the Karo Syrup, water and brown sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil and let boil for 15 minutes. It will become thick and syrupy. While the mixture is boiling, beat the two egg whites and a pinch of salt until the egg whites form soft peaks. Then add the sugar and vanilla to the egg whites and whip to medium peaks. Then add the syrup mixture and whip until stiff peaks form. Refrigerate.
I added the marshmallow layer to the pie just before serving. Place the pie under a broiler for 2-3 minutes so the marshmallow with toast. If you have a chef’s torch you can use that instead. Serve immediately.
