Dreamy S'more Pie:

My sister celebrated her 20th birthday on Sunday and this is the dessert that she picked out. I hadn't made it before, but 2 of Kelley's favorite things are cream cheese and hazelnut spread, so I gave it a try for her! It turned out pretty amazing and she loved it! I thought it was okay, but 2 of my least favorite things are cream cheese and hazelnut spread, so if you like those things, then I'm sure you'll love this!
Since we have both gluten-free and gluten-filled eaters in our home, I made one pie with a graham cracker crust and one without a crust. I hope you try it out!!

Dreamy S'more Pie Recipe
-With a graham cracker crust-

-Without a crust-
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 & 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream
1 (13 oz.) container chocolate hazelnut spread
3 cups mini marshmallows
1 (9-inch) graham cracker crust (omit if you are making this gluten-free)

In a mixing bowl, cream together the cream cheese and whipping cream until well mixed and very thick. Add hazelnut spread and mix well. Pour into prepared crust, or a serving dish. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours. Right before serving, top with marshmallows - press gently into the filling. Broil about 6 inches from the heat 1-2 minutes or until marshmallows are golden. Serve!!!

-This is NOT a healthy dish in any way. I just wanted to make sure everyone understood that!!
-Philadelphia cream cheese would be the best for this. I used a generic brand, and was left with little tiny lumps that wouldn't really mix in. Philadelphia cream cheese would mix much better.
-If you don't know, Hazelnut spread is found with the peanut butter in most grocery stores.
-Make sure you DO NOT walk away while the marshmallows are in the oven! They turn really fast and you have to watch them closely (unless of course you like your s'mores made with burnt marshmallows!).
