Have you seen the movie The Waitress?
I love that movie because of the pies. Yes, it only takes pies to make me love a movie. But really, these pies are so much fun…they have the best names…like this one: Marshmallow Mermaid Pie! Oh how delightful. (I’m not recommending The Waitress because there are some moral issues with the movie. It ends right as rain though…just a disclaimer)
When the movie came out the studio put recipes up for all the pies. The recipes are all over blog-land, which made me so happy!
My daughter Bethany is due in May and her baby shower is next month…we’re doing a Cutie Pie Baby Shower! The menu is full of pies…savory pies, sweet creamy pies, fruit pies! Needless to say, I’m practice-making pies every weekend!
Which brings me back to The Waitress…I had to try the Marshmallow Mermaid Pie from the movie ’cause me and marshmallows…well, we have a special relationship.
For this scrumptious pie you melt marshmallows…Ummmm, yum!
Then add grated (or chopped !) unsweetened chocolate!
I could have eaten this entire mixing bowl full of creamy goodness…
Here’s the sweet recipe!
Marshmallow Mermaid Pie
Graham cracker crust
Use gluten free graham crackers or a regular gluten free crust for a gluten free version of this recipe!
