S'mores Pie

I know its the middle of winter and I shouldn't be thinking about s'mores but one day last weekend it was 62 degrees and I decided to make this sweet chocolate pie.  This was very easy to make since it has a graham cracker crust and I like pies so much better when they don't have a dough pie crust.  The secret to this pie is to put it in the refrigerator and slice it while its cold and then put it in the microwave for 20 seconds to get the marshmallows and chocolate warm again.  Its so good!  This is from http://www.howsweeteats.com/2011/02/smores-pie/.

3 cups graham cracker crumbs
8 tbsp butter, melted
3/4 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup milk
10 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
pinch of salt
2 eggs, whisked
1/2 bag mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.   In a medium bowl, mix together the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter until evenly coated.  Press into a 9 inch pie plate.  Bake for 8-10 minutes.

In a medium saucepan, whisk together the cream and milk.  Warm over medium-low heat.  Add in chocolate and stir until chocolate has melted and is smooth.

Slowly add whisked eggs and mix until smooth.

Pour chocolate filling into baked pie crust.  Bake for 15-20 minutes or until chocolate filling is set and does not move when pie is lightly shaken.  Remove from oven.

Place marshmallows over chocolate to cover completely.  Set oven to broil.  Place pie under broiler and lightly toast marshmallows.  This can take anywhere from 30 seconds to 3 minutes so watch carefully because they heat quickly.   Chill pie in refrigerator for 2-3 hours.  Slice while chilled and eat the pie slices after warming in the microwave for 15-20 seconds.
