4 ounces butter
5.3 ounces sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 1/3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
20 ounces milk chocolate
3 cups miniature marshmallows
4.5 ounces bittersweet chocolate
½ cup heavy cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a half sheet tray (18x13) or glass Pyrex baking dish.
Beat butter, sugar, vanilla, and eggs together (using the paddle attachment on the standup mixer)
In a separate bowl, stir together ½ cup graham cracker crumbs, flour, baking powder, and salt. Combine with the sugar-vanilla-egg mixture
Press the dough into already greased half sheet pan or glass Pyrex baking dish and bake for 15 minutes
Melt the milk chocolate in a saucepan or in a microwave. Pour onto the freshly baked graham cracker pie shell. Top with marshmallows.
Scatter ½ cup of graham cracker crumbs on top and bake for an additional 10 minutes
Make chocolate ganache: In a separate small pot add heavy cream and bring to a boil, slowly incorporate bittersweet chocolate using a whisk. Once all chocolate is incorporated, keep warm being careful not to burn.
Finish the pie by blow torching the marshmallows or briefly placing the pie under the broiler and watching carefully.
Top with hot chocolate ganache.
