This easy no bake s'mores pie recipe has a thick, creamy, chocolate filling topped with a marshmallow-y meringue that's browned with a plumber's torch for the perfect toasted marshmallow texture and flavor. You'll love this pie!
This pie is so easy but it looks and tastes like a gourmet show stopper dessert. I saw it in the July issue of Bon Appetit and knew that I was going to make it.
The Bon Appetit version contains coffee but I left that out and added a bit of milk chocolate because I really wanted that real S'mores flavor.
In the spirit of the campfire I also let the meringue get scorched in some areas... Use a kitchen torch for this part - it works great. I use a big blue plumber's torch - it holds a lot of propane and it makes me feel tough. 😀
I have probably mentioned this a hundred times before but... for really good meringues you have to add the sugar very slowly.
Start with a clean bowl and whisk attachment, rinse both of them well with vinegar and use room temperature egg whites. Start adding the sugar when the egg whites are frothy and look like frosted glass.
📞 The last word
August holds the hottest days of the year and it is really easy to just forget about dessert. This no bake s'mores pie will totally change your mind.
You can make it a few days ahead of time but don't do the meringue until right before serving. Take THIS to your next potluck and see what happens.
If you love extra rich chocolate you'll want to make this decadent German chocolate pie next!
