Recipe adapted from www.hostthetoast.com
Makes 8 jars
Ingredients:
8 graham crackers, crushed
1 package of mini marshmallows
For the ganache:
8 oz bittersweet chocolate chips
4 oz semisweet chocolate chips
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into chunks.
1 cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
For the meringue:
3 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
1 cup marshmallow creme
2 cups mini marshmallows
Making ganache:
  1. Place chocolate and butter in a medium-sized bowl. In a small saucepan, combine the cream, sugar, and salt and heat over medium, stirring constantly until the sugar is completely dissolved (about 4 minutes).
  2. Pour the hot cream mixture over the chocolate and butter. When chocolate starts to melt, stir gently until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Making meringue:
  4. In an electric mixer, beat the egg whites, vanilla and salt at high speed until foamy. Gradually add the sugar and beat until stiff peaks form, (about 4-5 minutes).
  5. Add the marshmallow creme, a spoonful at a time while continuously beating, all of it has been added. Meringue should be fluffy and well combined.
Assembling:
  1. Evenly divide the graham cracker crumbs, and spoon into the bottoms of each jar.
  2. Add a layer of mini marshmallows
  3. Spoon some of the ganache on top of the marshmallows
  4. Follow with another layer of marshmallow, and another layer of ganache.
  5. Spoon a dollop of the meringue on top and allow the peak to extend an inch or two above the top of the jar.
  6. Using a kitchen torch, or a broiler, brown the tops of the meringue. It takes only a few seconds, so be careful not to burn them.
  7. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
