I Have a Confession, I’ve Got an Obsession
So I have a confession.
And by confession I mean obsession.
It starts with a little of this.
And then some of that.
Do I have your attention yet? Are you starting to become obsessed?
I think I’m starting to sound like a hypnotist.
…Back to the pie.
It gets topped with a lot of these.
When you take this + that + these what do you get?
Oh yeah!! Get out your stretchy pants people, because this pie is something that you will not want to share.
Just as a side note…when you put the pie in the broiler DO NOT do what I did and step away from the oven to turn up Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Because these marshmallows are very temperamental. And if left alone they will turn on you.
Lucky for me I LOVE burnt marshmallows, but Lucas some people don’t care too much for them.
They look kind of like dinosaur eggs don’t they?
Where that came from I’m not sure.
But I’m just glad they don’t taste like dinosaur eggs. Not that I know what dinosaur eggs taste like. I guess they dinosaur eggs could taste like marshmallows.
Ok we’ve got to get off this conversation.
Can you see know why I’m confessing that this pie is my newest obsession?
We had it after dinner, I had it as a snack, and I had it after lunch.
I was a little sad when the last piece was consumed today.
I think I’ll be dreaming about this pie tonight!
So…what are you waiting for?!!
from How Sweet It Is
Ingredients for Crust
1 3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 1/4 sticks butter, melted
Directions for Crust
Preheat oven to 325.
Add melted butter and graham cracker crumbs together until a crust forms. Press in to a 9 inch pie plate.
Ingredients for Chocolate Filling
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup milk
10 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 bag of large marshmallows
Directions for Chocolate Filling
Combine milk and heavy cream in a saucepan and heat over low heat. Watch carefully and once it begins to simmer, remove from heat and add in chocolate. Stir with a spatula until chocolate is melted, then whisk in sugar and salt. In a separate bowl, lightly beat the 2 eggs. Slowly add eggs to chocolate mixture while whisking.
Pour chocolate filling in to graham crust. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until filling is set. (Pay attention and check every 5-10 minutes after 20 minutes pass to make sure you don’t over cook it) Once the chocolate is no longer liquid, remove the tart and top with as many large marshmallows as you can fit. Heat the broiler to high and broil for just a few minutes until marshmallows are cooked to your liking.
Let cool then refrigerate for 1-2 hours before cutting. Dip your knife in to hot water before and after each slice of the pie.
