S'more Pie

S’more Pie

Summer has come to an end and already the shops are filled with the flavors and scents of pumpkin and cinnamon. Though this past weekend for my birthday I thought I would like something a little more chocolaty.

My husband usually makes me a chocolate cake for my birthday, but for some reason I’d been wanting a chocolate pudding pie. I started thinking about it and thought why not a S’more Pie. After all the no-bake crusts are already gram cracker, and then we’d have the chocolate pudding pie filling all that is needed is a marshmallow frosting.

I did a search online, and though I did find some S’more Pie recipes I didn’t care for any of them. I wanted something easy like a pudding pie, basically a no bake option, but with more  of a chocolate taste and not just pudding. Finally I decided to combine a couple of recipe ingredients. Essentially it’s a traditional pudding pie with the addition of melted chocolate and condensed milk.

S'more Pie Filling
Here’s basically the ingredients for the pie all whipped up.
I did forget to take a picture of the Cool Whip that was also added.

Next I needed to find a marshmallow frosting. I did a search online and found a lot of recipes and from the pictures they looked really good, just like toasted marshmallow. However, after reading the recipes 90% of all the ones I found were just egg meringue, they didn’t even have marshmallow. So, I kind of also just winged the frosting by making a very basic buttercream frosting then adding some melted marshmallows to the mix. Although it came out okay, I think it may be just a little too sweet. 

Marshmallow Frosting
Here’s the butter, the whipped buttercream frosting, and the marshmallows right before they were melted.

The pie filling was enough for the 9″ crust and two mini pies and since I was worried about the frosting being too sweet, I topped the mini pies with just plain marshmallows, instead of the frosting. 

Before serving I toasted the marshmallows a little with a lighter, to really give it a S’more like effect.

After sampling the pie, which was delicious, I decided however that the marshmallow frosting was jus too sweet, and would probably be better as a cupcake frosting. I think I’d instead try the pie with only marshmallows or marshmallow fluff on top. Also, the Lactaid milk I used in the pie made the filling a little runny, in other words in never firmed up like other pudding pies have in the past. Oh, well live and learn.
