Note to self: Make sure you have your pie pans before making a pie. Also, the next time you and mom comment on how many pie pans your mom has, maybe think about how she has YOUR pie pans. So uh, yeah, once again, I made a pie in a cake pan. That’s apparently just how I roll.
But look at those toasted marshmallows. I mean, who really cares what kind of pan it’s in, right? My coworkers didn’t care, that’s for sure! This pie in a cake pan was devoured quickly (dare I say, for breakfast by many), and when people went back for seconds it was long gone. Side note: It’s a well known fact that the only way to guarantee sweets at the office is to hoard some at your desk. This is true of every office, isn’t it?

1 3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 1/4 sticks butter, melted
Preheat oven to 325.
Add melted butter and graham cracker crumbs together until a crust forms. Press in to a 9 inch pie pan (or cake pan, whatever).
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup milk
10 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 bag of large marshmallows
Combine milk and heavy cream in a saucepan and heat over low heat. Watch carefully and once it begins to simmer, remove from heat and add in chocolate. Stir with a spatula until chocolate is melted, then whisk in sugar and salt. In a separate bowl, lightly beat the 2 eggs. Slowly add eggs to chocolate mixture while whisking.
Pour chocolate filling in to graham crust. Bake until the chocolate is no longer liquid, about 30-35, checking after 20 minutes. Remove the pan and top with as many large marshmallows as you can fit. Heat pie under broiler until the tops of marshmallows are golden. (This happens quickly, don’t leave the room.)
Let cool then refrigerate for 1-2 hours before cutting. Spray a knife with non-stick spray before slicing. It’s impossible to get a neat slice, I promise.
