Chocolate Marshmallow Pie

I love spontaneously making pies. You can make them pretty much any way you'd like..with anything as a filling.

Last night I decided I wanted to make a chocolate marshmallow pie.

Here's how:

  • 9 graham crackers (you can use any kind you'd like..I used the regular honey ones)
  • about 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 5 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
In a food processor:

Break up graham crackers and combine them with the chocolate chips and the butter until coarse crumbs form.

Press mixture into a 9-inch pie plate using a spoon and your hands.

Bake for about 10 minutes in an oven at 375 F.

  • 34 large marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a medium saucepan, heat marshmallows, milk, and chocolate chips on low heat until the mixture is melted together. Be sure to stir constantly.

Then combine the marshmallow mixture with the half and half in an electric mixer until it is well blended.

Pour the filling into the baked crust and leave the pie in the fridge for at least 3 hours. I left mine in overnight to make sure the filling set well.

The end result was a bit more of a pudding-like pie instead of marshmallowy..but it was extremely delicious!
