S'more Pie a la Marshmallow Crème

S’more Pie a la Marshmallow Crème

6 ounces bittersweet, semisweet or milk chocolate, finely chopped
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons dark-color corn syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla or creme de cacao
1/2 8 - ounce carton mascarpone cheese or 1/2 of an 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened (4 ounces)
1 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup tiny marshmallows
Finely crushed graham crackers
Coarsely grated bittersweet, semisweet or milk chocolate or chocolate curls (optional)

Prepare the Graham Cracker Crust; set aside.
For filling: In a heavy small saucepan, combine 6 ounces chocolate, water, the 1/4 cup whipping and corn syrup. Heat and stir constantly over medium-low heat until mixture is smooth and chocolate is melted. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Let cool for 20 minutes; stir occasionally.
In a medium bowl, stir together the chocolate mixture and mascarpone; set aside. In a chilled metal mixing bowl, beat the 1 cup whipping cream and powdered sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed, beating until soft peaks form. Using a large spatula, gently fold whipped cream into the chocolate mixture.
Place marshmallows in the bottom of the baked crust. Spoon filling over marshmallows. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours or until well-chilled.
To serve, cut into wedges and serve with Marshmallow Creme. Garnish with finely crushed graham crackers and, if you like, grated chocolate.
In a medium bowl, combine one 7-ounce jar marshmallow creme and 1 tablespoon creme de cacao or milk. Stir in 1 cup tiny marshmallows. Makes 1 1/3 cups.
