Gluten free and Eggless S’mores Pie

IMG_2008.JPG

I saw gluten free graham crackers in the market and knew I had to make this pie. I’ve always wanted to make it, but because of the lack of availability of gluten free products here, I never could.

This pie though. What a pie. I guarantee you that it tastes as good as it looks, and man this pie is pretty. The marshmallow topping is so sweet and creamy compared to the dark chocolate filling it’s really scrumptious.

1/4 cup brown sugar
7 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1 cup whipping cream

For the topping:
2 cups marshmallows

Procedure:
For the crust:

For the filling:

Then, pour the cream on top of the chocolate chips, and then let it sit for a minute.
Starting stirring the mixture until you get a beautiful homogenous chocolate filling.
Allow it to cool, and then pour it on top of the chilled crust.
Chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, until the filling has thickened.

For the topping:
Arrange the marshmallows on top of the filling, and broil or torch until browned (I didn’t have a kitchen torch or broiler so I just put it in the oven until the marshmallows were brown)
Store in the refrigerator.
