S’mores Pie Is a Good Substitute When You Can’t Fire-Roast Your Own (recipe included)

. at . 3 comments

Thanksgiving at the beach has been our tradition for the past several years. We cart the sliced turkey, cooked and foil-wrapped white and sweet potatoes, stuffing, and cranberry sauce to our sandy home. We also bring sandwich fixings, dessert, drink, and plenty of firewood.

The windscreen that the boys put up protects our spot from the gusty wind. Walks, baseball and/or volleyball, and marshmallow roasting (to make s’mores) fill up the time between eating and talking.

This year we didn’t do a beach run since it was supposed to RAIN. So my daughter had us all at her home.

Since there would be no marshmallow roasting, I googled “s’mores pie.” The below recipe is the one of the dozens of versions offered. This is very sweet and perfectly s’mores-like after its been broiled or heated in the microwave for 10 seconds.

S’MORE’S PIE INGREDIENTS (how I made this recipe)

  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 boxes instant chocolate fudge pudding
  • 1 tub (8 ounces) thawed Cool Whip or this home-made version
  • 1 graham cracker crust (biggest size)
  • 1 bag large marshmallows


1. Take the plastic top off the store-bought graham cracker crust. If you are going to transport the pie before eating it, do not re-crimp the edges until Step 9.

2. If you want to make your own crust go here for the recipe.

3. In a mixing bowl pour in the 2 cups of milk and the 2 packages of chocolate fudge pudding mix. Beat until thoroughly mixed.

4. Stir in the thawed Cool Whip until it is mixed in well. It will take about 5 minutes to fully set. (You don’t have to mix it for 5 minutes.)

5. Pour the filling into the graham cracker crust.

6. Top the pudding mixture with marshmallows in any pattern you like.

7. Place your pie in the broiler (leaving the door open) until the marshmallows are golden brown (30-60 seconds). Be watchful at this step as the marshmallows can easily burn. You can also use a kitchen torch. 

8. To serve, cut the marshmallows with a sharp, serrated knife. Use a pie server to move slices from pan to dessert plate.

9. If you are transporting the pie, put the plastic lid back on and re-crimp the aluminium edges onto the plastic rim. I transported my pie before broiling it. You can do either.

10.  If you’ve chilled your pie, be sure to heat your slice of s’mores in the microwave for 10 seconds before serving it. This will slightly melt the marshmallows and it’ll make you think you are on the beach having a fire-baked s’more.

    Yes, it was sweet BUT very good. And it was a big hit with the younger crowd. Plus I liked that I had all the ingredients on hand.

    This looks so amazing. Not to complain at all but marshallows are here for about 9 dollars a bag. We may have graham crackers for about the same price, but I’m pretty sure we don’t have instant fudge pudding. I’m just saying, please eat a big bite for me. It looks so awesome!
