1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup half-and-half
3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
4 egg yolks, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 prepared chocolate pastry shell or pie crust
2 cups marshmallows
Graham cracker crumbs, as desired

Step 1

In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Slowly whisk in the milk, half-and-half, and chocolate. Cook over medium high heat until thickened and bubbly, roughly 5–8 minutes, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat to low and cook 2 minutes longer. Remove from heat.

Step 2

Place the yolks in a small bowl; whisk a small amount of the hot filling into the yolks. Pour the mixture into the pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a simmer; cook and whisk 2–3 minutes longer. Remove from the heat.

Step 3

Carefully stir in the butter and vanilla, then spoon the mixture into the pastry shell. Allow to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight. Top with marshmallows. Use a kitchen torch to toast, if desired. Sprinkle graham crumbs over the top for garnish.
