It’s the quintessential summer snack: s’mores. We all have fond and funny memories associated with the most amazing trifecta of ingredients (graham crackers, milk chocolate, and marshmallows), toasted and melted together into the ooey-gooeyest of desserts. A summer evening on a camping trip or sitting around a backyard fire pit isn’t complete without a round or two of smores. We can make s’mores at home too and our pie version of this summertime classic is about as good as it gets.
S’mores pie is one of the best desserts we’ve ever had. It combines all of those classic ingredients, graham crackers, milk chocolate, and marshmallows into one amazing dessert. We like to think of this as the slightly-less-messy version of the traditional serving. With this recipe, you don’t need a campfire, just a warm oven and a round of forks to help dive into this sweet treat. This is a baking project well suited for the kiddos, who still want that s’mores experience but in the comfort of our own kitchen. And by the way, who can resist sneaking a few tastes of that wonderfully magical marshmallow fluff?!
This is a pie that can be served warm from the oven (a little cooling time is necessary to prevent any burnt tongues!) or cooled completely for a slightly less messy slice of pie. Our s’mores pie is perfect at any time of year, so even during the winter, when everyone dreams of warmer weather, a pie like this is the right kind of treat. A true s’more is so simple, just three ingredients make for the most amazing confection, and a s’mores pie is a slightly more “upscale” version of this summertime classic.

- 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
- ½ cup granulated sugar
