S’mores Pie for Memorial Day Weekend

S'mores Pie Memorial Day

This time of year we’re making s’mores just about every time we gather. They are timelessly perfect for a Memorial Day barbecue, a Friday night fire pit on the porch, or a beach bonfire while on vacation.

We absolutely love s’mores. So much, we needed a simple s’mores alternative for when a fire is too much fuss.  Since we’re straying from the traditional fireside s’more, we decided now is as good a time as any to implement another substitution: enter the delicious, butter saltiness of the ritz cracker. I was inspired to make a crust in the style of a graham cracker crust using ritz. It seemed like a great balance for a really sweet dessert. The cracker crust was a little delicate for melted marshmallows, so I opted for marshmallow cream. It torched beautifully and had the perfect consistency. This dessert is a simple yet sophisticated take on an old favorite.

MAGIC SHELL

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of quality chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil

DIRECTIONS

Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler or carefully in the microwave. Once it is completely melted, stir to make sure they a are combined, remove from heat and set aside to cool a bit.

FOR S’MORES

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 jars of marshmallow cream or 2 10oz bags of melted marshmallows
  • 1 recipe of homemade magic shell
  • 1 ritz cracker crust
  • flaked salt

DIRECTIONS

Pour enough marshmallow cream on top of the ritz crust to give you a nice thick layer. Toast the marshmallow cream using a kitchen torch or carefully broil until nice and toasted like a good campfire marshmallow. Set the crust with the torched marshmallow in the freezer for a bit to cool it off a bit(not necessary but it will help the magic shell a lot quicker since you usually pour it over frozen ice cream). Pour the magic shell over the dessert and before it sets up sprinkle it with flaked salt if desired. Cut into to squares and serve.
