Sweet S'Mores Pie
S'Mores Pie--A Treat Your Whole Family Will Smile Over
The summer months conjure up memories of toasting marshmallows over a campfire and then smashing them with chocolate between two graham crackers--a beloved and time-honored treat. But when it's a little too hot for a fire (or you're at home, not out in the middle of nowhere enjoying nature!), try this refreshing spin on the classic s'mores dessert: Sweet S'Mores Pie. It's incredibly simple to make and a cool treat for a hot summer day!
1 1/2 cups crushed graham crackers (honey-flavored Teddy Grahams are a delicious alternative, too!)
1/2 stick melted butter
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
1 tub Cool Whip, thawed
2 pkg. cream cheese (left out to soften)
1 jar Nutella (13.5 ounce)
Semi-sweet chocolate chips
Step One: Mix the crushed graham crackers, melted butter, and 1 tsp vanilla in a medium sized bowl until the graham crackers and damp and crumbly but still sticking together. Press them into the bottom of a pie plate and slightly up the sides. (Helpful hint: use a food process on pulse to break up the graham crackers.)
Step Two: Place cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl and beat with a mixer until the two ingredients are blended together. Add in the 1/2 tsp vanilla and the jar of Nutella; blend again until the chocolate and cream cheese are well mixed. Fold in the Cool Whip until the filling reaches a light brown color and is evenly mixed.
Step Three: Sprinkle mini marshmallows and chocolate chips over the top of the pie and refrigerate for at least two hours. Enjoy!
