Wellll, hellooo there! It’s been quite a long time since I’ve shared a recipe – especially a dessert recipe. But with St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, I thought this was a good excuse to create something fun. Truth be told, I looked around my pantry and fridge and thought to myself, “What ingredients need to be used up that would likely get thrown away soon.” The answer was staring me in the face: heavy whipping cream, half opened cream cheese, and marshmallow fluff. I thought this was SUCH a random combination at first, but then it all came together when I noticed a graham cracker crust hiding too… I don’t even know why we had that. So, a fun s’more pie was born!
And if you’re sitting here thinking, “Why is a dietitian posting a recipe with tons of sugar?” I will answer that for you as well. I’m a dietitian but I’m a realistic human, too. I like chocolate and dessert just like I love broccoli and avocados. I don’t like to demonize foods, but rather empower you to make a choice for the serving size that fits your needs. So if a s’more pie sounds amazing to you right now, read on 🙂
St. Patrick's Day S'more Pie
- 1 graham cracker pie crust
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 4 ounces cream cheese
- 1.5 cups heavy whipping cream
- 7 ounces marshmallow fluff
- 1 cup marshmallows
- 2-3 drops green food coloring
- 2-3 tablespoons milk
- Extra items for the top, optional.
For the filling:
Combine chocolate chips and cream cheese in a medium bowl. Set aside.
Bring the heavy whipping cream to a boil in a small sauce pan. Remove from heat and pour onto the chips/cheese.
Let this sit for 1-2 minutes while it naturally melts the chocolate and cheese. Then using a small whisk, slowly combine the mixture to a complete consistency. This will take a little time, but just keep stirring.
Place chocolate mixture in the graham cracker pie crust.
For the topping:
Combine all ingredients into a medium bowl. It might seem like you'll never get the milk to combine at first, but keep stirring and you'll get a nice consistency with marshmallow bumps.
Pour this topping directly on top of the chocolate mixture. For the most part it will spread out itself. But I had to use a spoon to get it closer to the edges on a few spots.
If you want to decorate the top, now is the time! I added some more marshmallows, a graham cracker, chocolate chips, and some green sprinkles that we had on hand. I also think think it would be cool to only top with more marshmallows and then brown them with a flame to make the treat even more s'moresy.
