Fudgy S'mores Pie


Well, back-to-school season is here and summer is quickly coming to end.  But that doesn't mean we have to stop enjoying one of our all-time favorite summer treats.  Campfires may be slowing down for the season, but our enjoyment of s'mores sure doesn't have to.

Nope.

Just trade in those made-in-the-outdoors campfire s'mores for a made-in-the-oven tasty treat instead, like this totally rich and scrumptious Fudgy S'mores Pie.

I am a huge fan of the S'more.  Huge.  So much so that I have a dedicated S'mores Pinterest board.  Mmm hmmm, that's some serious love right there.

But just like most everyone else, I'm really not around a campfire all that often to enjoy my beloved S'mores treat.  So I've come up with various 'indoor' ways to get my S'mores fix! ... Like this totally rich, totally delicious Fudgy S'mores Pie.

Fudgy S'mores Pie

The rich-and-fudgy part of Fudgy S'mores Pie comes from basically a brownie-in-a-crust pie base.  I used the recipe for my ever-popular Chocolate Crack Pie as the yummy chocolate part of the S'mores Pie, adding a sprinkling of graham cracker crumbs to the crust ...

... and then topped it with dreamy homemade marshmallow topping.

Now, a s'mores not really a s'more without some toasting from the campfire, right?  Well, in this Fudgy S'mores Pie indoor version, a kitchen torch {or broiler} stands in for that fabulous campfire.  But you get that fabulous toasted flavor, just the same.

Toast away to your desired s'more toastiness.  I for one like my s'more marshmallows just barely starting to show some golden brown ... but I know many out there who like them on-fire blackened!  Charred is not my style, but if it's yours ... char away!

So even though campfires may be slowing down for the season, keep your s'mores enjoyment going with this made-in-the-oven totally rich and scrumptious Fudgy S'mores Pie.  I know I sure will!

(Printable recipe)

Fudgy Chocolate Tart:
Ingredients
  • 1 (4 oz.) bar semi-sweet baking chocolate
  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1 c. granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 pie crust for a bottom-crust-only pie {Make your own or store-bought. If using a store-bought frozen crust that comes already in a foil pan, use 'regular' not 'deep dish.'}
  • 2 T. graham cracker crumbs
  • whipped cream for serving {optional}
Directions
  1. Lightly spray an 8-inch pie plate with non-stick cooking spray. Fit pie crust into the bottom and up sides of pie plate.  Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs evenly inside crust and gently press down to adhere to crust.  Set aside.
  2. Melt butter and chocolate together in a small saucepan over very small heat, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and immediately add sugar; stir until well combined. Allow to stand about 3 minutes to cool slightly.
  3. Place eggs in a mixing bowl; beat lightly with a fork or whisk. Add chocolate mixture and whisk until well combined.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees on the bottom oven rack for 30 minutes. Move to top oven rack and bake for 10 minutes more. Cool to room temperature.
  5. Top with marshmallow topping.

Marshmallow Topping:

Ingredients
  • 3/4 c. granulated sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. cream of tartar
  • pinch salt
  • 3 T. water
  • 1 egg whites
  • 3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
Directions
  1. Place sugar, cream of tartar, salt, water, and egg whites in the top of a double boiler. Beat with a handheld electric mixer for 1 minute.
  2. Bring some water to a boil in the bottom pan portion of the double boiler. Place egg white mixture over boiling water, being sure that boiling water does not touch the bottom of the top pan. {If this happens, it could cause your frosting to become grainy.}
  3. With the egg white mixture over the boiling water, beat constantly on high speed with electric mixer for 7 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and beat in vanilla.
  5. Let cool for about 10 minutes and then immediately spread on top of cooled chocolate tart.
  6. Toast marshmallow topping with a kitchen torch, or brown under a broiler, watching closely, for about 3 to 5 minutes.

Enjoy!
