  • This has been a favorite family dessert for the holidays, for my whole life. I have modernized it by doing a double recipe at once, and melt the marshmallows with the milk on half to low power in the microwave. I also use two ounces of baking chocolate per pie. When the filling is ready, I spoon it into pre-made graham cracker pie shells.
