Chocolate S’more Pie

I made this wonderfullly yummy "pie" this weekend. The recipe came out of one of those pricey recipe books masquerading as a magazine, Gourmet Summer Entertaining. I usually don't indulge in those grocery store checkout aisles temptations, but this issue had lots of recipe I thought I would make. 

This pie was made using a purchased graham cracker crust. On top of that was an easy to make chocolate ganache. The marshmallow topping I made according to the recipe and it came out great. You could also use marshallow fluff since the consistency was about the same, but I'm not sure it's available in the west? Then after it's properly chilled it goes under the broiler to make a nice crackly brown crust.

We had a hard time eating just one piece. Care to indulge yourself? Here is the recipe. It's sure to leave you wanting s'more.

Wow, this looks so yummy!  It may be a bit time consuming for me—I am not a baker, but maybe I will try it.  Can you use half & half instead of cream? Also what kind of chocolate did you use?

Thanks for sharing!

Bigsis, it’s TOO yummy! Not much baking involved here really if you want to tweak the recipe a little. The chocolate ganache is just finely chopped up chocolate with hot cream poured over the top to melt, whisk in an egg and a little salt. Spread it in the already-made crust. You can top with Marshmallow Fluff or miniature marshmallows instead of making your own. Easy!

I used 60% cacao, Ghirardelli.

Wow, that looks amazing! Especially with that browned topping. Yum.
