My friend Nikki isn’t shy about letting me know about desserts that she wants me to make haha. When she finds an amazing looking dessert she almost always shares it to my Facebook wall with a “make this for meeee” comment. When she shared a S’more Pie recipe on my Facebook with the comment “Aaaaaahhhhhh!!!!”, I took one look at it and knew that I had to recreate it! Her sister, Toni, commented as soon as Nikki posted it to my wall and said “One of YALL make this for me!!!”
So right then and there I wrote it down on my “to make list”. We were headed down to NC to visit Toni anyways so I was set that I needed to make this “s’more pie” to take with us.
When I made these to take with us to Wilmington, I made them pretty close to the original recipe (with a few minor changes) but I’ve changed it up a bit more for this post. I found the recipe that Nikki wanted me to make over on Maria and Josh’s blog Two Peas and Their Pod, which sent me to the S’more pie on Tonya’s Blog 4 Little Fergusons, which she adapted from the S’more Pie on Shelly’s blog Cookies and Cups. Whoa. haha
FYI if someone ever sends a photo of a dessert that they want you to make, you *might* just be able to use the google image search to find out where it came from and it there is a good recipe attached.
Oh and for the trip to Wilmington I also made 4 mini pies (like the one pictured above) with this recipe. So just so you know, this recipe will make 1 large pie or 4 smaller ones.
So how did I change up the already amazing recipe? Well, for starters, I only used chocolate chips in this recipe instead chocolate chips and chocolate bars. There isn’t anything wrong with using both kinds but I don’t normally have chocolate bars around the house but I have been known to squirrel away a few bags of chocolate chips in the baking cabinet!
I will say that the first time I made these pies I did use chocolate bars only because I had some leftover from Easter but I can’t tell a difference when I make the pies with only chocolate chips.
I also reduced the amount of graham crackers crumbs because too many make pies too dry for my liking. (But play around with that amount, you might want more than I used)
Ooooooooo and I added caramel to the last few I’ve made. Whoa, what? Ok, now I’m going to tell you that these are simply amazing without the caramel so you can totally leave that out if you want too but I love all things caramel so it was a no brainier for me. I have to keep it in there now!!
Love S’mores? You’re pretty much going to fall head over heels for this pie! It’s the perfect combo of chocolate, graham crackers, caramel and warm melty marshmallows.
It got thumbs up from everyone when I made it and took it down to the beach. I know you’re gonna love it!
