2 blocks of softened cream cheese

1 Tbsp Vanilla

¾ Cup Sugar

1 Large jar Jets Marshmallow Cream ®

1 Graham Cracker Pie crust

2 Graham Crackers

2 Blocks Ghirardelli Chocolate ®



Chop chocolate into very small pieces and shavings then set aside (separate 2 Tbsp)

Cream the cream cheese, vanilla, and sugar on medium speed

Fold in marshmallow cream

Fold thoroughly so the marshmallow is blended well with the cream cheese mixture (I ran the mixer for about 30 seconds, then stirred, and mixed for another 30 seconds)

Fold in all chocolate shavings and pieces except for the 2 Tbsp

Pour into pie crust

Sprinkle 2 Tbsp of chocolate on top

Make crumbs of the 2 graham crackers and sprinkle that on top of the pie

Let it set for 3 hours before serving

You’ll Need:

1 stick butter, softened
1 c sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 c all purpose flour

How to make it:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream together butter and sugar with electric mixer until fluffy, about 3 minutes.

Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.

Add cocoa powder, salt and flour and stir until well combined.

Grease 8 inch pie pan with butter or cooking spray, pour mixture into pie pan.

Bake 30 to 35 minutes until center is set.

Hand mix to make it gooey, because if you use a mixer, it will have more of a brownie or cake texture, rather than “gooey”
