- pinch of salt
- ½ tsp vanilla

- Grind graham crackers in a food processor. Or place them in a zip lock bag, and whack them with a rolling pin, until they are crushed into a fine crumb.
- Place graham cracker crumbs into a bowl, add the salt and the melted butter. Combine with a fork until the crumbs stick together.
- Place the crumbs in a 9 ½ pie plate working the crumbs up the side of the pan, with the palm of your hand. Set aside.
- Place both chocolate chips and butter in a heat safe bowl. Heat the heavy cream in a sauce pan until it simmers, pour it over the chocolate chips and whisk until melted and combined. Add whole eggs, and yolks and mix until combined. Add vanilla.
- Pour chocolate mixture into piecrust and bake 15-20 mins until pie is set and a toothpick comes out clean.
- Meanwhile, place 2 egg whites, corn syrup, salt, vanilla and cream of tartar in a bowl and whip on high until stiff peaks form and mixture is glossy. Slowly add sugar.
- Allow pie to cool, and then add marshmallow topping on top, creating decorative swirls as you go with a spatula.
- At this point, if you are not serving right away, the pie can be refrigerated until ready to serve. Then proceed with last step of broiling.
- Place pie under the broiler for 1-2 mins until marshmallow topping turns golden brown.
- BE CAREFUL! Marshmallow burns quickly so please keep an eye on it while broiling, do not walk away!
