Toasted Marshmallow S’more Tart

I absolutely love S'mores. They're the perfect childhood dessert that bring back so many fond memories of huddling around a campfire with my family and trying to get the perfectly golden roasted ‘mallow… while others just lit there's on fire and preferred to eat them charred. I created this Toasted Marshmallow S'more Tart Recipe when I was creating recipes for my first cookbook, Against all Grain. Sadly, I had to cut this recipe from the book because I had way too many sweets, but I knew I had to share it with you all. I think it's the perfect mix of a childhood favorite with a little bit more sophistication… not to mention it's a lot easier to eat!

One thing that I love about this Toasted Marshmallow S'more Tart is that it's so versatile. It's the kind of dessert that you could serve at any get together. Surprise the kids with this at a birthday party or even at any of your holiday parties! My eBook Thankful has plenty of classic Thanksgiving pies, but if you're more of a chocolate lover like me, try these S'more Tarts this year!

“First you take the graham, you stick the chocolate on the graham. Then you roast the ‘mallow. When the ‘mallows flaming… you stick it on the chocolate. Then cover with the other end. Then you scarf. Kind of messy, but good! Try some!”

SERVES: 6 to 8

Cuisine: American

Category: Dessert


Marshmallow Topping:


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2.  Prepare pie dough as described here. Press the dough into one 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom, or split into individual sized tart pans. Fill the crust with pie weights or dried beans and bake it for 10 minutes, until lightly browned around the edges. Remove from the oven and cool completely on a wire rack. Remove the pie weights and parchment paper.
  3. In a saucepan over low heat, warm the coconut milk, chocolate, cacao butter, maple syrup, coffee, vanilla seeds, and pod. Stir for 5-7 minutes until the chocolate has melted and you have a smooth ganache. Remove the vanilla pod. Pour the filling into the cooled crust, filling about ¾ full. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours, until firm.
For the Marshmallow:
  1. Bring 2 inches of water to a simmer in a saucepan. In a heatproof mixing bowl, combine the egg whites, honey, vanilla, and pinch of salt. Place the bowl over the simmering water, careful not to let it touch the water. Whisk the egg whites constantly for 3-5 minutes, until the mixture is just warm to the touch. Remove from the heat, and transfer the mixing bowl to a stand mixer. Immediately begin whipping on high. Alternatively, use an electric hand beater and beat the whites in the bowl that was used warm the mixture. Pour in the teaspoon of ice water. Keep beating on high until thick and glossy, about 5 minutes.
  2. Remove the tart from the fridge. Spoon the marshmallow topping on top of the chocolate filling. To decorate, use your fingers to pull up small peaks of the marshmallow all around the tart. Toast the marshmallow by placing the tart under the broiler for 30 seconds, just enough to brown the peaks of the marshmallow. Alternatively, use a kitchen torch to lightly toast the topping.
  3. Serve immediately.
*Tip – you can make the crust and filling a day beforehand and store in the fridge. The marshmallow meringue will start to deconstruct as it sits, so it is best to make this right before serving.
