Sweet Tooth Friday: Dark Chocolate S’mores Pie

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son on October 13, 2011

I know it’s not officially s’mores season anymore, and that’s a shame really. Why should s’mores have a season? Why can’t we enjoy the ooey, gooey, chocolatey goodness all year round?

Well, I think that we can. Especially if it’s in the form of a dark chocolate s’mores pie. Right now you will not catch me outside next to a camp fire, in the cold and rainy weather that has taken over lately. No way.

However, you will find me hunched over the stove, stirring and stirring and stirring. Breathing in the sweet scent of dark chocolate pudding cooking. And tasting, because I’m not about to put something on the table that I haven’t tasted. Especially when chocolate is involved.

S'mores Pie

Just because we aren’t toasting marshmallows over the fire, that doesn’t mean we are missing out on the toasted marshmallow experience. Because topping this indulgent pie, is a layer of toasted mini marshmallows. Complete with the crispy, browned outside and gooey inside. You won’t even miss the camp fire.

S'mores Pie

This recipe is dedicated to my pregnant sister, who requested a s’mores dessert the last time we got together. Who am I to say no to a pregnant lady? Also thanks to all of my Facebook fans who voted on which recipe I should share this week.

Dark Chocolate S’mores Pie

Dark Chocolate S’mores Pie

Ingredients

    Crust
  • 1-1/3 cups cinnamon graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Pudding
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 6 tablespoons dark cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 cups skim milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Topping
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows

Instructions

    Crust
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl combine the cinnamon graham cracker crumbs and 1/4 cup of the sugar. Add the melted butter and mix until combined. Using the back of a spoon press the crumb mixture into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie pan. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool.
  2. Pudding
  3. In a medium bowl beat the egg yolks with a whisk. Set aside.
  4. Combine the sugar, cornstarch, dark cocoa powder, and sea salt in a medium saucepan, set over medium heat. Slowly whisk in the milk, stirring until smooth. Increase the heat to medium high and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring often. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly, then remove the pan from the heat.
  5. Slowly whisk 1/2 cup of the hot chocolate mixture into the egg yolks. Whisk in 1 cup of the chocolate mixture, then return the chocolate and egg mixture to the saucepan, with the remaining chocolate mixture. Boil the mixture over medium heat for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  6. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the butter and vanilla extract. Pour the filling into the pie crust and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes, or chill it in the refrigerator overnight.
  7. Topping
  8. Heat the oven to broil. Cover the pie with mini marshmallows and broil it on the uppermost rack for about 30 seconds or until the marshmallows are lightly browned. Watch very carefully, the marshmallows can burn easily.
  9. Serve warm or chilled.

greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel

Hiya! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to
make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from
my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that
might be able to fix this problem. If you have any suggestions,
please share. Thanks!

24 spy sms December 1, 2013 at 4:56 am

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up?
I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice
would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

Therefore selecting the perfect well fitting Rugby
boots is very important. So, the Tundra scored 3 out 4,
so it seems we clearly have a winner, weird thing is though, the Samsung Rugby
is the more durable phone. Dinner: 1 cup of pasta sauce with 2 cups of cooked
pasta, 3 slices of garlic bread, 2 glasses of cordial.

Howdy, I do believe your web site could be having web browser compatibility problems.
Whenever I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.
I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Other than that, fantastic site!

38 งาน part time ทำที่บ้าน June 4, 2014 at 7:27 am

Howdy! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.

Does running a well-established website such as yours require a lot of work?
I am completely new to operating a blog however I do write in my diary every day.
I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and
feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
Appreciate it!
