As the weather cools, the ovens heat up! It is baking season again ladies and gentlemen! However, you won't need the oven very long for this Caramel and Chocolate Marshmallow Cream Pie recipe. The only thing you need to bake is the pie crust, the rest can easily be made on the stove top.
With Halloween just about upon us, many people, myself included, are gearing up for Halloween parties this weekend. You would think, being a food blogger, it would be easy for me to come up with a dish to bring, but it is surprisingly difficult. Between a full-time job, maintaining my three posts a week schedule, and taking care of my seven month old daughter, it is hard enough trying to fake a social life, much less whipping up a dish to pass. So instead, I get smart and whip up a blog post that I can use as a dish to pass!
So, if you are reading this Kate, Dan, Ashlee, Adam, Hilliary, or Steven, get ready to eat this Caramel and Chocolate Marshmallow Cream Pie on Saturday! If you are not reading it, then... "Look at the pie I whipped up special for you for guys!" Yay! I'm so thoughtful!
Regardless of your reasons for baking, Walmart has you covered with a great baking center display set up in stores. I found this one prominently set up in the main aisle with all of the budget friendly Kraft baking essentials I need for this pie, or any other holiday baking marathon!
To make my Caramel and Chocolate Marshmallow Cream Pie I grabbed Kraft Caramel Bits, which was the first time I've cooked with them. I really liked their convenience since I didn't have to mess around with unwrapping individual caramels. I also often use Baker's Semi-Sweet Chocolate since it is easy to portion into whatever size I need for recipes. Additionally, I found using Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme to be easier to work with for this recipe than actual marshmallows, since it is already in cream form.
So how does this Caramel and Chocolate Marshmallow Cream Pie taste? Well, imagine smooth layer of chocolate coating a flaky pie crust, while a salty, nutty, caramel layer rests on top in all its sticky glory, only to have that layer blanketed by a fluffy, rich, chocolately layer. I guess what I'm trying to say is, it's decadence at its finest!
