Now that Magic Bean is here–and I suppose I should find something else to call him so I don’t give the kid a complex though I figure The Little Prince is probably too much 😉 –I went back through the family recipe box(es). I inherited handwritten recipe cards from both sides. When my niece married, I put together a cookbook of family favorites. I did the same when my brother-in-law married–for my new sister-in-law, though BiL actually cooks as much as she does. When Baseball Boy joined the James Gang, I did the same for him–since he cooks more than The Only.
Anyway, I came across one that I make on holidays for the BiL. Welcome to the southern treat of Hershey Pie!
12 large marshmallows
4 regular size Hershey’s Chocolate with Almonds candy bars
1/4 cup milk
1 cup Cool Whip
1 graham cracker crust
Combine marshmallows, chocolate, and milk in a medium pan. Stir over low heat until chocolate and marshmallows are melted. Cool. Fold in Cool Whip. Pour into pie shell. Chill before serving.
You can serve plain or with dollops of Cool Whip on each slice. It tastes a lot like S’mores, only cold. 😀
