This smores pie recipe is rich, creamy, and topped with melted roasted marshmallows while nestled in a graham cracker crust. You may miss the campfire, but you won't miss the gooey smores experience with this easy smore pie.
Not to be confused with my No Bake Smores Ice Cream Pie, this recipe uses milk chocolate and a homemade custard to get that perfect creamy consistency in every slice.
I love how easily and wonderfully this smores pie recipe comes together. It's all the things you love most about smores, but made in pie form. Perfect for a sweet summer dessert.
My husband says this recipe is perfect the way it is and may have helped himself to more slices after I turned away, but I'm glad he likes it and I hope you do too.

Why This Recipe Works
- Minimal ingredients. The filling is just 4 simple ingredients, and then marshmallows are added on top. Broiled until their your level of perfection so if you like roasted marshmallows dark or lightly golden brown, you can have it your way!
- Easy to make. The filling for this recipe is very quick and easy to make, which means that it's great for novice bakers that are looking for more experience in the kitchen.
- It's a frugal dessert. Made for about $5 in cost, this pie is pretty frugal and easy to add to almost any budget. Bring it to the next BBQ or potluck and watch how fast it disappears.
Prepared Graham cracker crust- You will want to use a store-bought Graham cracker crust or homemade crust made from Graham cracker crumbs and Butter. I like storebought because it saves me time and effort.
Heavy cream- Using heavy cream will give us a rich and creamy consistency.
Milk chocolate chips- Smores are made with milk chocolate bars, so it's recommended that we use milk chocolate chips for that iconic taste. You can use semi-sweet if desired, but it just won't be the same.
Eggs- Use some eggs for that custard-like consistency.
Vanilla- A flavor enhancer.
Marshmallows- Adding marshmallows and toasting them is what brings this smores pie full circle. Marshmallows make a lovely garnish and give us the missing ingredient needed to complete our smores.

Top with your large marshmallows. Turn your oven broiler on high and place your pie in there for a few seconds to a minute until the marshmallows are toasted to your desired level of doneness.

Let cool about 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
🍴 Recipe Tips
For this smore pie recipe, you can use a premade graham cracker crust to cut down on time.
Using chopped Hershey bars instead of milk chocolate chips is also a great option and tastes incredible.
When you're broiling the pie to toast the marshmallows do not walk away from the oven! These marshmallows will toast and burn very quickly. In under a minute, you'll have them to the perfect level of doneness.
Keep your smores pudding pie covered and stored in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.
Yes, you could. Marshmallow fluff would create a great look once spread over the top but it might be a bit sticky and hard to spread.
Absolutely! It cuts down on time and effort that way. If you want to use a store-bought crust, feel free to go for it. You won't need to blind bake t so skip straight to the filling preparation and continue the recipe card from there.

I followed the recipe exactly and it ended up coming out runny. Still tastes good though other than the runny part.
huh, that's so strange. I've made this recipe countless times and never had it turn out runny before. It is a custard pie so it should be set when finished baking and be pretty firm to slice once it's cooled down.
This pie looked so pretty when completed and the chocolate pie part was amazing but the marshmallow top was a disaster to cut. When I tried to slice it the entire topping wanted to come off in one big glob! My family did get a good laugh over it though!
Oh no! That can happen if you overcook the marshmallows. You want them lightly toasted so that they aren't too stuck together and can slice more easily. If they're too melted, they will join into one.
Has anyone ever tried to bake this pie in the individual pre-made pie crusts? Trying to figure out how long to bake them since they are so small.
That's a wonderful question! I've never thought to make individual pies, but now I think I'll have to give it a shot and update the post with the information. For now though, I think starting at half the baking time (about 15 minutes) and then adjusting from there should suffice.
