S'mores Blondie Pie

Memorial Day is coming up, and I'll be posting a great Memorial Day Weekend recipe every day this week.

For your Memorial Day celebration, maybe you plan on making S'mores on the Grill or the campfire. But, just maybe, you want to make your Memorial Day S'mores ahead, so you can enjoy the party! This S'mores Blondie Pie tastes like Summer. It's an easy dessert recipe from Hershey's Kitchens. And, as much as I love high-end chocolate, when it comes to S'mores, I prefer Hershey's!

S'mores Blondie Pie

6 HERSHEY'S Milk Chocolate Bars (1.55 oz. each), divided
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1-1/2 cups marshmallow creme (marshmallow fluff)
1/4 teaspoon shortening (do not use margarine, butter, spread or oil)

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 9-inch pie plate. Unwrap chocolate bars; break into pieces.
Beat butter and sugar until blended in medium bowl. Add egg; beat until light and fluffy. Stir in flour, graham cracker crumbs, and baking powder; beat until well blended.
Press half of dough onto bottom and up sides of pie plate. Spread marshmallow creme over bottom of crust. Set aside 1 tablespoon chocolate bar pieces; sprinkle remaining pieces evenly over marshmallow creme.
Form remaining dough into ball; place on sheet of waxed paper. With fingers, flatten and shape into 9-inch circle. Pick up waxed paper, supporting dough with hands. Flip dough onto pie surface; peel off waxed paper. Pinch edges of dough together and form crust edge.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Melt remaining chocolate bar pieces with shortening; drizzle over top of pie.
Optional: torch some mini-marshmallows and put them on top of the pie!

To serve, microwave slices at HIGH (100%) 15 to 20 seconds or until slightly warm and marshmallow starts to melt.
