S'more Pie a la Marshmallow Creme - August Pie Pilgrimage

I'm not sure if my hiatus from blogging this summer is over or not.  I still haven't decided how I want to spend my "free" time now that the kids are back in school.  So far, I'm not off to a very good start considering my August pie post is just now coming up on September 2nd!  I thought for sure I took care of this. Scout's honor...this pie really was prepared and devoured during the month of August!

We love to build a fire in our back yard in the evening and roast marshmallows.  Love it even better when the marshmallows cozy up with a slab of chocolate in between some crunch grahams.  Well, it's been too hot for fires most of the summer, so this is the next best thing.

S'more Pie a la Marshmallow Creme
Here's What You Need:
6 oz. chocolate, finely chopped
1/4 cup whipping cream
2 Tablespoons dark corn syrup
1/4 cup water
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup tiny marshmallows
Graham Cracker Crust
Marshmallow Topping (recipe follows)
Here's What You Do:
In a heavy saucepan, mix the chocolate, 1/4 cup cream, corn syrup and water.  Heat and stir constantly over medium heat until smooth.  Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.  Cool 20 minutes stirring occasionally.
In a bowl, mix chocolate mixture and cream cheese.  In a chilled mixing bowl, beat 1 cup cream and the powdered sugar with mixer until soft peaks form.  Using a spatula, fold the cream mixture into the chocolate mixture.
Place marshmallows in the bottom of the graham cracker crust.  Use your favorite recipe or just buy one already made to speed things up for you.  Spoon the chocolate mixture over the marshmallows.  Cover and chill at least 4 hours.  Spoon on the marshmallow topping before serving.
Marshmallow Topping:
In a bowl, mix one 7 ounce jar of marshmallow cream and 1 Tablespoon of milk.  Pour over top of pie before serving.
