i was requested to make this chocolate pie few months ago for a sunday school services, the order was 125 pcs, and i have some leftover to keep. it was actually just an ordinary basic pie crust, filled with chocolate ganache (with a dash of cinnamon), and topped with mini marshmallow. i ever thought of putting a little more marshmallow on top of the ganache and torched them, but then i felt like i shouldn't overdosed those little children with sugar. it looks prettier with just one marshmallow anyway, i guess. this one is a very practical dessert and easy to love as well.. you can even make it faster using store-bought shortcrust pastry and just fill it with ganache.
