Easy Dessert Recipe: Mini S'mores Pie

Are you the type of cook that likes to stick with a tested recipe or come up with a culinary creation of your own? 

Most of the time, I'm the latter. I may be inspired by a recipe, but I like to play around with ingredients and come up with my own ideas. The foundation for this particular recipe came from the back of the package for the mini graham cracker pie crusts. But, I tweaked the ingredients and came up with quick and easy mini s'mores pies.

You need:

2 packages of Keebler® Ready Crust® Mini Graham Cracker Pie Crust

6 ounces of Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips

1 - 14 ounce can of Sweetened Condensed Milk

2 Cups of Heavy Whipping Cream

About 3/4 cup of Micro-mini Marshmallows

About 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips to sprinkle on top (optional)

(Makes 12 individual servings)

Here's what to do:

On low heat, combine the sweetened condensed milk and the Semi Sweet Chocolate chips in a saucepan.  Let the chocolate chips melt and mix it all up.  Once it's all mixed up, remove it from the heat and let it cool. 

Pour 2 cups of heavy whipping creme into a chilled bowl, and mix it with an electric mixer on medium speed until it makes soft peaks.  Then, slowly fold in your cooled chocolate mixture.

Once it's all mixed up, spoon it evenly between your graham cracker crusts and spinkle on the micro mini marshmallows.  Chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours and then serve.

The results:

Perfect for chocoholics! It was rich and chocolately The portions are the perfect size and the kids loved it.

Usually, I try to make things as healthy as possible.  But, this is indulgent. 

It's one of those desserts that you just sit back, enjoy & try not to think about the sugar, fat or calories!
