S’mores Pie

s'mores pie toasted mallows

There’s just something about s’mores.  Toasted ooey gooey marshmallows with crisp hot outsides, soft, sticky, gooey insides, paired with crisp graham crackers and soft melt-y chocolate.

However, there are times when making s’mores isn’t convenient, easy or do-able.  However, since coming home from the amazing birthday trip of win, and toasting s’mores on the beach with good friends my kids have been hounding me hinting incessantly that they’d love to have more s’mores (see what I did there?)

So… while I teased her on twitter about a s’mores pie.. I was actually seriously trying to figure out the best way to create a more easily edible, house friendly s’more.  So, I did what I do, I opened my pantry realized it was a disaster and spent 3 hours scrubbing it top to bottom and re-organizing and grabbed what I thought I could use:  pudding mix, graham crackers and marshmallows.

I put one package of graham crackers into my food processor and pulsed them into crumb-dom

To about 1 1/2 C of crumbs, I added 1/4 C sugar and then 4 Tbsp melted butter.  Mix it up, press it into a pie pan and bake at 350 for 12 minutes.

While it’s baking, mix 2 boxes Chocolate Fudge Pudding Mix with 2 C cold milk and 1/2 container whipped topping. (I’ll admit, this is not something I keep on hand, however, knowing that pudding mix wouldn’t have the right consistency on its own, I ran out and snagged some)  Whisk these together into a thick, chocolate-y heavenly concoction

Scoop the chocolate pudding deliciousness into the fresh baked graham cracker pie crust (yes, you can use a pre-made, just give it a nice toasting first) and smooth.

Top with a bag of marshmallows, make a pretty design, whatever, I started circling the outside with marshmallows and worked my way inward.

Turn your broiler on high, put the marshmallow topped, chocolate, s’more pie of awesomeness onto your oven rack, leave the door open and watch as the marshmallows, swell, puff and toast.

Here’s one of the things that rocks so much about this s’mores pudding pie.

You can immediately slice a piece and devour it straight from the oven;

The marshmallows are all hot and crisp on the outside and melty molten sugary lava goodness on the inside, the chocolate pudding pie is thick and creamy and chilled and the graham cracker crust… there are no words.

Now, on to the amazing tonguegasmic awesomeness of this concoction.  This can be devoured and enjoyed straight from the oven, or you can slice it and heat it for 12 seconds in the microwave which will make the entire pie more closely resemble a traditional campfire s’more; the marshmallow will be hotter, the chocolate soft and melty and the graham cracker crust a bit warm and still crisp.  This can also be chilled and then re-heated the next day.

My 3 yo has snuck out of his room 4 times tonight to try to snag pieces of this pie from the counter.

*I baked this in an aluminum pie pan and then stored it with a second tin pie pan turned over top of it to preserve the marshmallows.

    Oh Rachel, your S’mores Pie has to be one of the best dessert ideas ever. I love how easy it is, and it looks so, so delicious! I’m very glad I’ve got some marshmallows in the cupboard!! Thank you for hosting Mouthwatering Mondays and have a great week :)

    OK, this looks great and as soon as I stop drooling on my keyboard I have a comment… ….OK, I’m drier now. if you used this DARK chocolate pudding recipe from this site, “http://low-fat-cooking.suite101.com/article.cfm/dark_chocolate_pudding_recipe”, the FDA, ATF and Betty Crocker will list this as an addictive substance and ban it.
    Seriously, your kids are going to grow up thinking all kids get to eat this well and it will take years of cooking school to make them better.

    I was introduced to Smores by an exchange student. Not having a campfire in the dorms; we made smores in the microwave. Take your cracker, put 1 square of chocolate on it, and 1 marshmallow. Put it in the micro for no more than 10 seconds. Check the smooshyness. If you need to, micro it for another 10 seconds or so. The smush the second cracker down on top of it. And boom! Before you know it you have had a sugar over-dose and have to lie down for a while.

    I love S’Mores and make them indoors all the time! We use a sterno pot, but I’ve also made S’mores dip in the oven instead. This looks fantastic, and should work great with gluten free substitutes since you’ve created your own crust – thanks so much.

    my boys would **LOVE** this!
    Will try to make it a bit healthier and send you the upgrade. Pudding mix has gluten in it, at least it always makes them break out…

    Oh. My. Goodnight. That just looks like heaven. It makes me crave a campfire (and, of course, chocolate).

  9. Brittany says

    Wow, just in time for my fiance’s birthday party! He’s a chocolate fiend, so I pretty much HAVE to make this now. Thanks for the great recipe!

  10. ShadowL says

    I tried this tonight and even had enough filling left to do a half dozen of the mini graham cracker crusts as well as the big pie.

    Great idea!

  11. John says
