Chocolate Mallow Pie Recipe

Chocolate Mallow Pie Recipe

Ingredients: Serves 6

200 g/7 oz chocolate digestive biscuit (graham cracker) crumbs

75 g/3 oz butter, melted
175 g/6 oz plain (semi-sweet) chocolate
20 pink and white marshmallows

30 ml/2 tbsp water
1 egg, separated
300 ml double (heavy) cream, whipped
8 rose leaves

Method:

Mix the biscuit crumbs with the butter and press into the base and sides of an 18 cm/7 in flan tin (pie pan). Melt 100 g/4 oz/1 cup of the chocolate with the marshmallows and water in a saucepan over a gentle heat, stirring all the time. Cool slightly, then stir in the egg yolk and leave to cool. Whisk the egg white until stiff and fold into the chocolate mixture with three-quarters of the cream. Turn into the flan case (pie shell) and chill until set.


Melt the remaining chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water (or in the microwave). Dip one side of each rose leaf in the chocolate and place on a sheet of greaseproof (waxed) paper to set. Chill. When ready to serve, spread the remaining cream over the chocolate pie. Gently peel the leaves off the chocolate and use the chocolate leaves to decorate the top.
