Coffee S’mores Pie {no bake}

This is one of those desserts where you take one bite and want to shout about it’s goodness to everyone near! But only your pup is near! So you tell him even though he can’t have chocolate so he can’t get thaaaaaaaaat excited. It’s one of those tasty treats that you almost eat in the car on your way to give it to someone. It’s the kind you bring into work to share, and eat a quarter of it. It’s that kind.

You guys, I knew I wanted to make this ever since I saw it’s good-lookin’ face in Bon Appetit. And the coffee ganache… Whoa. It didn’t disapoint. It really makes me want to infuse every ganache whisked in my kitchen. (Coffee, mint leaves, vanilla beans, oh my!)

So do me a favor and make this! Make minis for easy sharing. Make one big one and bring it to a bbq. Just make it, take a bite, and then tell me if it changes your life as much as it changed mine.

Coffee S’mores Pie (makes 1 large pie or 3 mini pies)
Recipe from Bon Appetit


crust –

  • 9 whole graham crackers, ground finely in a food processor
  • 2 T heavy cream
  • 2 T Nutella
  • 1 oz. semisweet chocolate
  • 1 T unsalted butter, melted
coffee ganache –
  • 12 oz. semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 T unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 2 T finely ground coffee
meringue –
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup sugar


  1. Make the crust. Mix the graham cracker crumbs, heavy cream, Nutella, chocolate, and butter together until all of the crumbs are moistened. Press into to the bottom of one large pie pan or 3 mini pie pans. Chill in the fridge until firm, about 30 minutes.
  2. Oh my coffee ganache. Place the chocolate and butter in a large bowl. Meanwhile heat the heavy cream and coffee along with 2 tablespoons of water until just boiling. Set aside to steep for 5 minutes. Pour through a fine mesh sieve over the chocolate and butter. Discard coffee grounds and whisk until smooth. Pour over chilled crust(s) and refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.
  3. Make meringue. Using an electric mixer beat the egg whites on medium speed until light and frothy. Add sugar in 4 additions, beating for 1 minute after each addition. Continue beating until egg whites are stiff and glossy. Spoon over ganache and swirl with a spoon. Toast with a kitchen torch if you want! Cover and chill until time to serve. Pie can be made a day ahead.

This graham cracker crust has nutella and melted chocolate in it! It doesn’t get too firm when chilled. It stays compact and not even crumbly.

  1. This looks crazy good…and here I sit NOT having had any breakfast yet…except coffee! This would SO go with it…
    Love you and see you oh so soon!!

    1. OOh, this would go good with your coffee. I can’t wait to see you either! I might need to make this again for when you guys are here…

  2. ah, I am such a sucker for s’mores anything! This looks amazing! Good work! Oh, and I’m probably going to start saying “Oh my ganache!” every day now.

  3. Ooh, I just can’t resist this. I keep saying I’m gonna cut out sugar and grains…and then a recipe like this comes along. Someday I’ll get some self-control 😉

  4. I saw this recipe in Bon Appetit as well and made it up right away. I mean that photo was so enticing, don’t you agree. I loved this pie and loved how dark and rich it was, but my kids thought it was a bit too strong in coffee flavor. I am thinking of making it next time sans the coffee. I really did LOVE the crust on this and plan on using it in other recipes instead of just plain old graham cracker.

    I love how you made mini pies from it and I adore your fun photos!

  5. Get outta here! That looks so good I can’t stand it. I must have one. No graham crackers here but we have something similar that will do – almost.

    1. I totally talked to mom and we’re thinking we’ll do a s’mores cheesecake for thanksgiving! I promise you’ll love it!! <3
