Mini S’mores Pies

Posted on

S'mores Pie!!!Rich dark chocolate pie in a graham crust, topped with marshmallow meringue.  S’mores with a new, fun look!

Everyone loves these flavors together.

Don’t they?

It just occurred to me that someone might hate s’mores.

Ok, well I don’t personally know anyone who doesn’t just adore this flavor combination.  I LOVE them, and crave them, and sometimes cheat by making them in the microwave when it’s snowing and a campfire is out of the question!

These little pies capture the flavor of a s’more, but add a rich chocolate flavor that is incredibly delicious, and can’t be had with just 2 squares of Hershey’s chocolate.  Or four squares… sometimes I use four.  Don’t tell.

S'mores Pie!!!

Here’s how these simple little treats are made: (printable version)

INGREDIENTS: (makes 12 mini pies)

  • 12 pre-made mini graham cracker crusts.
  • 1 cup of Ghirardelli Bittersweet chocolate chips (melted)
  • 1 cup of Ghirardelli Semi-sweet chocolate chips (melted)
  • 8 eggs (divided)
  • 5 Tablespoons of heavy whipping cream
  • 2 Tablespoons of vanilla
  • 2 cups of granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • Divide eggs, keeping ALL of the 8 egg whites and only 5 of the yolks.
  • Place the melted chocolate, 5 egg YOLKS, whipping cream and vanilla in a large mixing bowl and stir until well combined.
  • Evenly divide among all twelve mini pie crusts.
  • Bake (I put them all on a baking sheet) for 14-16 minutes, until the middle of each pie is set.
  • Make meringue while these bake, by adding all of the 8 egg WHITES, sugar and cream of tartar together in a medium heat-proof bowl that will sit on the top of a sauce pan of boiling water without touching the water.  (I had to experiment a bit to find a good fit.)
  • Bring water to a boil in the saucepan and set the bowl on top.
  • Whisk ingredients together for about 3-4 minutes.  Sugar will be dissolved and egg whites should be heated to 145F degrees.
  • Remove bowl from top of sauce pan and beat on low until the mixture thickens a little, then beat on high for about 10 minutes.  The meringue will become the most beautiful, white, glossy mixture.  It should form stiff peaks before you stop beating it.
  • Spoon all that wonderful marshmallow yumminess into a bag fitted with a decorating tip.
  • Once mini pies are removed from the oven, let them cool completely.
  • Pipe marshmallow meringue on the top of each pie and toast it with a kitchen torch.
  • Add a few graham cracker crumbs if you want, and enjoy!!!!


S'mores Pies!!!!My thoughts:  These are delicious. You can see from my pictures that I didn’t beat my meringue as long as I should have.  The are not the tall swirls of happiness I wanted them to be….  it was only my second time making meringue though, so I guess I won’t beat myself up too much.  My 1st time was perfect.  If you want to see how fluffy it SHOULD be, click here.  I LOVE this meringue.  When you read the instructions you might think it is too hard to make- but once you do it, you will realize that it isn’t hard at all.  Just a lot of time with a mixer in your hands.  I hope you get a chance to try this recipe out!  Enjoy! ~r

    • You use one to brown the marshmallow on top. You can leave the topping untoasted, or you could slide them under the broiler to toast them- but do this carefully as they will toast very very quickly!!
