Chocolate Marshmallow Pie

Yields1 Serving

Adapted from All the Sweet Things, by Renée Kohlman

 1 1/3 cups chocolate cookie crumbs
 1/4 cup butter, melted
 1/2 cup chopped dark chocolate
 2 Tbsp sugar
 1/4 tsp salt
 1/2 cup half & half
 20 large marshmallows (use a good brand)
 1 3/4 cups whipping cream

In a medium bowl, stir together the chocolate crumbs and melted butter; press over the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate (use a standard one, not deep dish). Refrigerate while you make the filling.


In a medium saucepan, warm the chocolate, sugar, salt and half & half over medium heat, whisking until smooth. Add the marshmallows and cook, stirring occasionally, until the marshmallows are melted and smooth.


Remove from the heat and if you want to speed things up, pour the mixture into a cooler bowl and/or set it in a dish of ice cubes. When it has cooled to room temperature, beat the whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the cooled chocolate mixture into the cream until completely incorporated. Pour into the shell and use the back of a spoon to make it as swirly as you like. Refrigerate, uncovered, for at least an hour before serving. Serves 8.
