Today I am recovering from Thanksgiving. Don't get me wrong, I had a wonderful holiday. But you know how it is. The house always needs cleaning. The laundry needs washing. All those things that just don't get done while you are vacationing. With the kids back in school I'm able to catch up on the stuff that I neglected over the long weekend.
I found this recipe many years ago in a magazine. I tweaked it to suit my tastes and have been making it ever since.
marshmallows, in a sauce pan. Cook this mixture over medium heat, stirring often, until all the marshmallows are melted. The mixture will look velvety smooth. Remove from the heat and stir in 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract. Set this aside to cool. I always put it in the fridge to speed it up.
Now it's time to bake the crust. A word about pie crust. For the record, I can and have made pie crust. Truth is, I find it boring and tedious. Thus I asked some lovely ladies named Sara, and Marie to became my friend. They make a dang good crust and save me lots of time. If you enjoy making pie crusts, by all means make your own. I'm just here to tell you that there is no shame in having your "friend" make it for you.
In case you don't want to sift through all that for the ingredients, here they are.
1/2 c. milk
1 1/3 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 bag small marshmallows
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 Tbs. unsalted butter
1/3 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
20 vanilla caramels
1/3 c. whipping cream
1 baked pie crust
1 c. whipping cream
Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
