Yields

8 servings

Ingredients

For the Crust

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 8 tablespoons butter, melted

For the Chocolate Layer

  • 8 ounces dark chocolate (I like 70% and up), chopped
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream

For the Pumpkin Layer

For the Marshmallow Frosting

  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon Rodelle vanilla extract
  • chopped chocolate, for topping

Directions

For the Crust

  • In a bowl, whisk together the graham crumbs and sugar.
  • Pour in the melted butter and mix until all the crumbs are moistened and the texture is sort of like wet said.
  • Press the mixture into a 9-inch springform pan, letting it come up the sides a bit.
  • Refrigerate while you make the chocolate layer.

For the Chocolate Layer

  • Place the chopped chocolate in a bowl. Heat the heavy cream in a saucepan over medium-low heat, just until it is simmering along the edges.
  • Pour it over the chocolate and let it sit for a minute, then stir it together until it creates a thick, smooth chocolate ganache.
  • Remove the crust from the fridge and pour the ganache in the crust, spreading it evenly over the bottom. Refrigerate while you make the pumpkin layer.

For the Pumpkin Layer

  • In the bottom of a saucepan, whisk together the gelatin, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and nutmeg. Whisk in the sweetened condensed milk and the eggs.
  • Heat the pot over low heat, whisking and stirring the entire time, for about 8 to 10 minutes until it has thickened. You don’t want any gelatin lumps, so make sure to stir.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the vanilla bean paste and the pumpkin until creamy and smooth. Let the mixture cool slightly.
  • Pour the mixture overtop of the chocolate ganache in the graham crust. Return the pan to the fridge and refrigerate for at least 4 to 6 hours, or even overnight.
  • Before serving, top with the marshmallow and chopped chocolate.

For the Marshmallow Frosting

  • To make the frosting, combine the egg whites, sugar and cream of tartar in a heat-proof bowl, preferably the bowl of your electric stand mixer.
  • Place over top of a double-boiler that contains simmering water, and whisk constantly for 3-4 minutes until the sugar has dissolved and the egg whites are slightly warm.
  • Immediately remove the bowl and place it on your stand mixer with the whisk attachment, beating slow at first and gradually increasing the speed to high.
  • Beat for 6-7 minutes until glossy and thick, then beat in vanilla extract for another minute until combined.
  • Pile the frosting on top of the pie before serving (an hour or two ahead of time is okay). Top with chopped chocolate.
