S’mores are the ultimate easy DIY dessert, but with after school activities, football games and homework taking up many of those crisp fall evenings, we often forget to make them.
We’ve tried making them in the microwave, but the graham cracker gets soft and the marshmallow doesn’t brown properly. We’ve tried them in the toaster oven, but it creates a huge mess. We’ve even tried using a kitchen brulee torch, but the marshmallow just doesn’t puff up the way we like it.
Maybe we’re being too picky, but you know how you can bite into a s’more and it’s mostly graham cracker and not enough filling? Or if you use two marshmallows you end up with a burning hot blob of goo squishing out the side? It’s just not that good. What if you could take the flavor combination of s’mores and turn it into a quick and easy dessert in your kitchen?
Obviously, we took that as a challenge, and the results were aaaaa-mazing! We started with a crisp, buttery graham cracker crust. Then, we filled it with a simple chocolate ganache and topped it with marshmallows we toasted to the perfect golden brown.
With only six ingredients you may already have on hand, you can create a rich, chocolatey pie with a campfire inspired topping and crust, too. Take a few minutes, grab the food processor and make this pie with your family on a cool fall evening. You’ll be so glad you did, and you won’t even need to hunt for sticks.
