S'mores Pie

Last night was a cause for celebration. My baby JJ came home! Okay he's 14 and totally not a baby but he's my baby and I missed him while he scuba'd the unknown depths for three weeks. He's my always hungree test tasting boy and I needed him back (no offense Jake). Well, to celebrate his return I had to treat him to something he'd love. One thing about JJ, he's obsessed with s'mores and toasted marshmallows. While some people have the occasional toasted marshmallow or s'more on a rare occasion, my family eats these as casual dessert/pre-dinner/snacks all day erry day. SO, I thought I'd make him a S'mores Pie: a graham cracker crust, a chocolate fudge filling, and toasted marshmallows on top. The great thing about this pie is that you can eat it two different ways. If you're super eager like us, you can eat it warm and gooey straight from the oven. If you're also super hungree like us and like to eat dessert twice in one night, you can wait till it chills in the freezer and eat it as a frozen fudgey bar. While I liked both, the frozen way won me over, but everyone has their own opinion. Guess you have to try it for yourself to see!

S'mores Pie

8 graham crackers
6 tbs butter

1 stick butter
12 oz. 60% bittersweet chocolate chips
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/3 cup heavy cream

many massive marshmallows

Recipe: Preheat your oven to 350. Crush the graham crackers into crumbs. Melt the 6 tbs of butter and mix it into the crumbs. Pat this mixture into a GREASED 9 inch pie/tart pan in an even layer. Thick is good. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes until golden brown. Remove and turn oven to 375 degrees.
While the crust is baking melt 1 stick of butter over low heat in a saucepan. Once the butter is melted, mix in the chocolate chips. Stir constantly until the chocolate is smooth. Remove from heat and mix in sugar, 2 beaten eggs, and the cream. Whisk furiously until well combined. Pour the chocolate mixture into the crust and bake in the oven for 25 minutes, until the chocolate filling is set.
Pre oven:
 This is what the pie looks like POST oven, set:
After you remove it from the oven, top the pie generously with massive amounts of MARSHMALLOWS. Don't be frugal.
Turn your oven on your broiler and with a very watchful eye toast the marshmallows, rotating the pie to ensure evenness.
EITHER serve warm or put in the freezer for at least 2 hours and serve cold.
