S'more Pie A La Marshmallow Creme!

Sorry I have been away from my blog for a bit.  I went to San Diego with my daughter, Heather to visit my daughter Jessica and son-in-law Jesse for a week!  Then I got home and had to work all weekend at my part-time job!  Also we have been (my hubby and I) searching high and low for a home to buy.  We have bought and sold a few homes in our day but this time is proving to be the most stressful yet!  UGH!  Anywhoo - I do have to go to work tonight too - but wanted to share a recipe (and maybe two) with you all today!  ENJOY :)

6 oz. chocolate, finely chopped
1/4 c. whipping cream
2 tbsp. dark corn syrup
1/4 c. water
2 tsp. vanilla
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 c. whipping cream
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 c. mini-marshmellows
Graham Cracker Crust (pre-made) or make your own!

In a saucepan stir together the chocolate, corn syrup and 1/4 c. water and 1/4 c. whipping cream.  Stir constantly over medium low heat until smooth.  Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.  Cool for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.  In a bowl mix together your chocolate mixture and the cream cheese.  In a seperate bowl whip your cream and beat in the powdered sugar.  Fold this into the chocolate mixture.  Place the marsmallows in the bottom of the crust.  Spoon the chocolate mixture over this and then chill at least 4 hours.  Spoon on the topping and serve: 
TOPPING:  1 7 oz. jar of Marshmallow creme, and 1 tbsp. milk - Stir together and pour over the top of your pie.  Slice and serve!
