S'mores Pie

LOVED this pie! Loved everything about it! The chocolate filling was sooo good. I've made it twice in eight days. :) It was very easy. If you like s'mores you have to try this. I used my own recipe for graham cracker crust here. I also recommend checking the pie after it has baked for 20 minutes, and if it is still not set then bake it for up to 10 more. Watch the marshmallows carefully in the broiler so they don't burn.

S'mores Pie
adapted from
3/4 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup milk
10 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
2 eggs, whisked
20-30 large marshmallows

1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together cream and milk. Warm over medium-low heat. Add in chocolate and stir until chocolate has completely melted and is smooth. Slowly add in vanilla and whisked eggs, and whisk until smooth. Pour chocolate filling into baked graham cracker crust.
2. Bake at 325 degrees for 20-30 minutes, or until chocolate filling is set and does not jiggle when pie is lightly shaken. Remove from oven.
3. Using kitchen shears or a knife, cut marshmallows in half. Place halves over the top of the pie until covered.
4. Lower oven rack to the middle position, and set oven to the lowest broil setting. Place pie on the rack and lightly toast the marshmallows until golden. You can also use a kitchen torch to toast the marshmallows instead. Chill pie in the refrigerator to set for 2-3 hours. Or it can also be served slightly warm. Drizzle with chocolate sauce if desired.
