Super S'Mores!

My girls and I kicked the homemade marshmallows up a notch and made some Super S'Mores!  Got this idea from Two Fat Al's while doing a vanity search on my marshmallow post.

First we made a fresh graham cracker crust.  We pre-baked this like you would for a key lime or lemon meringue pie.

 

Then we prepared the homemade marshmallows.  Only difference is we added a couple of teaspoons of vanilla extract to it.  We spread the marshmallow mixture into dish with the now cooled crust.

Let the marshmallows set for a while, about an hour.  Now we need to melt some chocolate, 2 bags of milk chocolate chips.  I guess my trusty double boiler got the boot when we got some new pots and pans a couple of years ago.  I improvised, and yes that reads Daddy's Cereal Bowl.

Once melted, we spread the chocolate over the semi-set marshmallows.

And to top it off, some crumbled graham crackers!

 

Since I won't be partaking in these, I haven't put too much thought in how to get them out of the pan once the chocolate sets.  Hmmmm.... 

Update:  Wasn't that hard to get them out of the pan.  Scored the chocolate first, then cut slowly with a sharp knife.  I should have baked the crust at a higher temp as it "mostly" held together, but the girls said it was awesome.
