Happy Memorial Day! Even though the day is meant to remember those that have passed in the line of duty while protecting our country, I’d like to send a special thank you to all the military personnel we have in our lives now. We are celebrating them by hosting a gathering around the Big Green Egg. 🙂
It’s going to be an absolutely beautiful day here in Austin – today’s forecast calls for rain, followed by more rain, and continued rain…In fact, it’s going to rain all.week.long.
That’s a lot of rain.
like love it.
So in between preparing for company today, and drying off soggy dogs, I’m going to take a few moments and watch the rain come down.
I should have plenty of opportunities for that….
Chocolate Mallow Pie – adapted from Cookie Madness
Although I’m not a big fan of marshmallows, Alexander certainly enjoyed this pie. In fact, he ate of most it for breakfast.
- 1 – 9 inch baked pie shell (I used a graham cracker crust)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 8 oz marshmallows
- 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 3 tbs. malted milk powder
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Sweetened whipped cream for garnish, or fresh strawberries are good too
Remove from heat and add the chocolate chips. Stir until smooth and let cool to room temperature. When cool, stir in the malted milk powder.
In a chilled metal bowl using chilled beaters, beat the cream until stiff peaks just begin to form. Beat in vanilla.
Fold whipped cream into chocolate mixture. Transfer the mixture into the baked pie shell. Chill for several hours or until set.
Before serving, garnish with sweetened whipped cream or fresh fruit.
