No-Bake S’mores Pie

No-Bake S'mores Pie by Brown Eyed Baker ::

It’s 4th of July week, which means it’s picnic time! Do you have a menu planned for Thursday yet? Mine is almost complete, just putting the finishing touches on it. If you’re in the market for a fabulous no-bake dessert this week, this pie fits the bill. It’s flat-out scorching in many areas of the country right now, so anything that doesn’t require an oven is a bonus, right!? One of my favorite things about summer picnics is when the graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows get busted out once the sun goes down. I am an unabashed s’mores lover; no summer is complete without them. When I saw a no-bake s’mores pie, I just had to make it!

The base of this pie is an easy graham cracker crust that, thanks to some malted milk powder, has a really unique flavor, setting it apart from a “regular” graham cracker crust. The crust is topped with a chocolate filling that’s more like a chocolate truffle filling. The recipe calls for bittersweet chocolate, but if you prefer milk or semisweet, you could certainly substitute either one of those without an issue. Finally, the pie is covered in marshmallows (you can’t have s’mores without marshmallows!). Once they’re set, grab a kitchen torch to them and toast them up!

If s’mores are a must on your summer menu, you can’t go wrong with this pie. It’s fairly quick, super easy, and I love adding to my no-bake recipe collection. It’s a great way to get that fabulous s’mores flavor without putting marshmallows on sticks (although nothing beats blowing out a marshmallow on fire!).

No-Bake S'mores Pie

Yield: 8 servings

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes

An easy no-bake recipe for a fabulous s'mores pie - graham cracker crust, chocolate truffle filling and toasted marshmallows on top.


For the Crust:
1½ cups graham cracker crumbs
¼ cup malted milk powder
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
¾ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
¼ cup heavy cream

For the Chocolate Filling:
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
⅓ cup heavy cream
1½ teaspoons light corn syrup
2½ tablespoons unsalted butter

For the Marshmallow Topping:
1 (10-ounce) bag marshmallows


1. Make the Graham Cracker Crust: In a large bowl, whisk together the graham cracker crumbs, malted milk powder, sugar and salt. In a measuring cup, whisk together the melted butter and heavy cream, then pour over the crumb mixture. Using a rubber spatula, fold and mix and the ingredients together until all of the dry ingredients are evenly moistened. Turn the mixture out into a 9-inch pie plate and press evenly along the bottom and up the sides of the pan. Refrigerate while the chocolate filling is prepared.

2. Make the Chocolate Filling: Place the chopped chocolate in a medium bowl. Combine the heavy cream and corn syrup in a small saucepan and place over medium heat. Warm the mixture until it is just barely boiling. Remove from the heat and pour over the chopped chocolate. Let sit for 1 minutes, then gently begin stirring with a rubber spatula (starting in the middle and working your way out), mixing until all of the chocolate is melted and combined. Add the butter and stir until melted and incorporated. (If the mixture cools down too much to totally melt the chocolate or butter, microwave in 10-second increments on 50% power, stirring until everything is completely melted together.)

3. Pour the chocolate mixture into the chilled pie crust and spread into an even layer. Gently press the marshmallows into the chocolate filling, covering the top of the pie with marshmallows. Chill the pie briefly (30 minutes to 1 hour) to allow the chocolate the set. When ready to serve, use a kitchen torch to toast the marshmallows. The pie can be kept at room temperature as long as it's not warmer than about 72 degrees. If your kitchen is warmer than that, then I would refrigerate the pie so the chocolate filling doesn't melt.

    I love anything and everything s’mores, so this looks delicious. I love that its no-bake and that there’s malt powder in the crust!


  2. Tieghan on July 1, 2013 at 12:35 am

    Whoa! This pie is incredible! I love how simple and easy it is. Perfect 4th of July dessert!


  3. Renee @ Awesome on $20 on July 1, 2013 at 12:40 am

    Ah, so simple yet so brilliant! I love a truffle pie, but I’ve never had one with charred marshmallows before. I can’t wait to try this. I’ve been looking for an excuse to buy a torch.


  4. Averie @ Averie Cooks on July 1, 2013 at 1:28 am

    Whoa! Smores. In a pie! And any recipe that uses a kitchen torch….that’s exciting! I swear I’m not a pyro maniac but half the fun in creme brulee, bananas foster, etc. is that I get to light it on fire. I love that this pie is the same :) Pinned.


  5. Mimi @ Culinary Couture on July 1, 2013 at 1:32 am

    This looks amaaaazing! Love the toasty marshmallows and the fact that it’s no-bake!


  6. Jessica Donnovan @ Catering Services on July 1, 2013 at 2:56 am

    Wow! Bright Idea! I bet it tastes soo good! I can integrate this with the current dish line up for the next fun wedding I’ll be catering this july. I’ll suggest this to the couple. I think they’d be really happy to see this in their menu. Thanks for this idea, I’ll share you pics once I’ve tried it first at home.

    Jessica :)


  7. Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers on July 1, 2013 at 6:59 am

    Wonderful recipe and I love that it is no bake! That is perfect for this hot weather! Hmmm, I may have to make this for the 4th of July!!


  8. marie @ little kitchie on July 1, 2013 at 7:12 am

    You had me at no-bake! In the Texas heat, any no bake treat is a winner, and this looks absolutely amazing!


  9. Heather @ Sugar Dish Me on July 1, 2013 at 7:30 am

    Love the malted milk powder in the crust!!! We used it for shakes in a little diner I used to work in, but I have NO IDEA where to buy it. Where did you find yours?


    • Penny on July 1st, 2013 at 8:09 am

      You can buy malted milk powder in any grocery store. It is with the nesquick and powdered milk.


    • Michelle on July 1st, 2013 at 11:23 pm

      Hi Heather, I buy mine from King Arthur Flour, I’ve never been able to find it at my grocery store.


  10. Tracey on July 1, 2013 at 7:44 am

    Oh how I wish I could reach through the screen and grab a slice for breakfast! Those perfectly toasted marshmallows look amazing!!


  11. Holly @ EatGreatBEGreat on July 1, 2013 at 7:58 am

    I love no-bake recipes, especially during the summer months. This one sounds delicious!


  12. Terri on July 1, 2013 at 8:42 am

    This is my kind of dessert. I saw marshmallows shaped like stars at Target that would be so cute on this pie for July 4th!


  13. David at From Ballparks to BBQ on July 1, 2013 at 8:45 am

    You had me at “chocolate truffle filling.”


  14. Belinda @themoonblushbaker on July 1, 2013 at 8:45 am

    Toasted marshmallow and chocolate in a pie? Who can not like this? Such a true style american dessert.


  15. Dee on July 1, 2013 at 8:52 am

    I love this idea! Do you always crush your own graham crackers? I know you can buy graham cracker crumbs but I would imagine there’s other ‘stuff’ in there.


    • Michelle on July 1st, 2013 at 11:25 pm

      Hi Dee, Sometimes I crush graham crackers, sometimes I buy the graham cracker crumbs, it all depends on what I already have in my pantry :)


  16. Jessica@AKitchenAddiction on July 1, 2013 at 9:14 am

    Absolutely love this pie! Perfect way to enjoy s’mores in this heat!


  17. Tara on July 1, 2013 at 9:16 am

    We’re not allowed to have campfires where we live despite all the rain we’re getting, and I am always looking for a good S’more substitute. Last week it was mini s’more cups, but this pie will headline our 4th party! Can’t wait!!


  18. Leah | So, How's It Taste? on July 1, 2013 at 9:29 am

    Oh my gosh! That looks so good! I’ve had a bag of marshmallows sitting on my counter and was looking for something to make other than rice krispies! I’m absolutely making this pie!


  19. Experimental Cook on July 1, 2013 at 9:33 am

    I was introduced to smores by my American friend and we made it together for our church fund raising. This post makes me think of her..


  20. Pamela @ Brooklyn Farm Girl on July 1, 2013 at 10:45 am

    Anything with no bake and looks this good I am 100% making this! Already added all the ingredients to my shopping list! Major great share, thank you!


  21. Kristi @ Inspiration Kitchen on July 1, 2013 at 11:15 am

    Oh my gosh – beautiful photography! I could reach right into my screen and eat that.


  22. Annie @ Annie's City Kitchen on July 1, 2013 at 11:21 am

    I totally made a similar pie a few weeks ago but yours looks so much easier! You’ve really got me craving this now…..


  23. Erin @ Dinners, Dishes and Desserts on July 1, 2013 at 11:45 am

    What a great idea for the crust, sounds like the perfect pie for this weekend!


  24. Marla on July 1, 2013 at 11:54 am

    Michelle – would you please tell me the pattern of the fork in the s’mores pie pictures? Love its classic simple lines.


    • Michelle on July 2nd, 2013 at 3:53 pm

      Hi Marla, They are Oneida; I just got them not too long ago, they were on sale at Macy’s. I don’t know what the pattern is though.


      • Marla on July 2nd, 2013 at 7:57 pm

        Thank you much!


      • Marla on July 21st, 2013 at 1:17 pm

        I think I found them and if so, the pattern name is Moda.


  25. Amy Clarke @ The Savvy Kitchen on July 1, 2013 at 12:22 pm

    This sounds delicious and is perfect for the 4th of July! Just wanted to let you know that I’m hosting a Giveaway…hope you enter!


  26. Annie @ Annie's Noms on July 1, 2013 at 12:26 pm

    Wow, I love the addition of malt powder in the crust! Malt powder is so underrated, I would use it for everything if I could!


  27. Jen N on July 1, 2013 at 1:28 pm

    This sounds great! Can the filing be made without corn syrup or with honey instead?


    • Michelle on July 1st, 2013 at 11:26 pm

      Hi Jen, You could use honey (the flavor might be a little strong, though)… a better substitute would be Lyle’s golden syrup.


  28. Nancy P.@thebittersideofsweet on July 1, 2013 at 1:38 pm

    It’s no bake! I am on board!


  29. Jamie @lifelovelemons on July 1, 2013 at 1:40 pm

    Smores for the win! This looks sooooo yummmmmyyyy


  30. Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes on July 1, 2013 at 2:31 pm

    Oh gosh…i LOVE s’mores anything! Love the “no bake” aspect of this too!


  31. Moira @ Hearth and Homefront on July 1, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    Malted milk powder in the crust is a great idea! I can’t wait to try it. I’ve been looking for an excuse to buy a torch and this looks like a good one :)


  32. Shelley on July 1, 2013 at 8:05 pm

    I turned your s’mores ice cream into a s’mores ice cream pie – use a graham cracker crust, spoon choc syrup on the bottom and top with that FABULOUS toasted marshmallow ice cream of yours.

    I’ll be making it this weekend. You have killer recipes. Thanks!


  33. Kathy on July 1, 2013 at 8:58 pm

    Chocolate truffle filling? Sign me up!


  34. Sues on July 1, 2013 at 10:52 pm

    I love s’mores anything and especially love that you don’t even have to bake this!


  35. vampire on July 2, 2013 at 4:57 am

    can i use the broiler to toast the marshmallows?


    • Michelle on July 2nd, 2013 at 8:18 pm

      You can, but I would watch it very closely; the marshmallows will brown quickly, and you don’t want the chocolate to melt.


  36. Dee on July 2, 2013 at 10:13 am

    Darn it .. I’m sorry, I already asked a question, but, I was at Stop & Shop this morning and didn’t find any Malted Milk Powder. Can I use Ovaltine?


    • Michelle on July 2nd, 2013 at 8:19 pm

      Hi Dee, I think that would work fine, either the vanilla or the chocolate, depending on the flavor you’d like.


  37. Kare @ Kitchen Treaty on July 2, 2013 at 10:13 am

    So brilliant to make a no-bake version! Perfect for scorching summer days – and to bring along to a Fourth of July gathering. People would rave. Love how simple this looks. The chocolate layer … ahhhh. No words.


  38. Nessa on July 2, 2013 at 9:33 pm



  39. Jaclyn on July 5, 2013 at 10:51 pm

    This looks amazingly good! S’mores everything is the best, love this pie version!


  40. Judy T. on July 6, 2013 at 9:03 am

    I made this for 4th of July and it was a huge success! We are visiting our daughter so I cheated a little and used a pre-made graham cracker crust. I used mini marshmallows too which made a super cute mosaic pattern on top. My torch was at home so a quick run under the broiler gave those minis a lovely brown puff (after the pie had chilled a couple of hours!). Very delicious indeed!


  41. Sandy on March 23, 2014 at 4:57 pm

    My pie is chilling in the fridge right now :).


  42. Aminah on August 29, 2014 at 9:44 am

    Fantastic! Mmmmmmm yummy!,


  43. Michelle @ Hummingbird High on February 7, 2015 at 7:15 pm

    Holy cow, how did I miss this?!! Thanks for giving my recipe a try!
