This recipe for a smores tart was inspired by a photo of a deeper dish S’mores Pie that I saw recently on one of the food sites. I loved the look of the top of the pie with its golden toasted marshmallow top but the ganache filling seemed a bit thick and dense for my taste.

Thinking it might be too rich, I decided to do my own much shallower version. I used an 11 inch fluted edge tart pan using a chocolate tart filling that I’ve used many times before.

Dark Chocolate Chips, to melt and dip the biscotti

I like to use 50% dark chocolate chips for this recipe but you can use semisweet as well.

Another reason I opted for the larger, shallower pan was so that I could fit more marshmallows on the top for a better marshmallow to chocolate ratio. If you don’t have a large tart pan, use your largest pie plate and add a few minutes to the baking time.

Not surprisingly, my kids loved this tart, finishing off the leftovers from dinner before bedtime. Though it is bound to be popular with kids, I think it looks elegant enough to serve at any dinner party.

It’s sure to be enjoyed by the young and young at heart. After all, who doesn’t love s’mores?

S'mores Tart

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

S'mores Tart - inspired by the campfire classic treat this dessert tart takes a bit more of a refined approach that's still delicious and fun for kids of all ages.

Ingredients

For the crust

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp sugar

For the chocolate filling

  • 7 ounces by weight dark chocolate, chopped into small pieces
  • 7 ounces whipping cream
  • 3 ounces milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 large beaten egg

For the marshmallow top

  • One 1/2 pound, 250gram bag large marshmallows

Instructions

To prepare the crust

  1. Lightly grease an 11 inch tart pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix together the graham crumbs, butter and sugar.
  3. Press into the bottom and sides of the greased tart pan.

To prepare the chocolate filling

  1. Bring the cream and milk just to boiling and pour the hot liquid over the chopped chocolate. Let stand for 5 minutes and whisk together until smooth.
  2. Cool for about 10 minutes before whisking in the beaten egg and vanilla.
  3. Pour into the crust and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. The center can still be a little wobbly at this point. The surface should still be shiny.
  4. Remove from oven, change the oven setting to broil and move the oven rack to the bottom. place the tart on a pizza pan or large circular baking pan. This will later allow you to easily turn the tart as the marshmallows toast.

To prepare the toasted marshmallow top

  1. Cut the marshmallows in half with kitchen scissors and starting by placing one marshmallow half in the center of the tart, arrange the rest of the marshmallow pieces in a tight circular pattern right to the edge of the crust.
  2. Place in the oven under the broiler and watching closely broil until the top is evenly golden brown. I like to rotate the pan 90 degrees about every 15 seconds to ensure even browning. The entire process should take just a few minutes.
  3. Cool the tart to room temperature before serving. If refrigerating the tart allow it to come back up to room temperature before serving for best results.
  4. Serve with a drizzle of chocolate ganache if desired.

This is delicious and so easy! My kids aren’t fans of dark chocolate so I used milk chocolate chips, and I also used the Ganache as suggested. A new family favourite!

Semisweet will be fine.

My family won't eat dark chocolate - do you think we could substitute semi-sweet? This really looks fabulous!

Can't wait to try this - wondering if the marshmallows should be placed cut side up or down? Or am I overthinking this?!?
