  • 12 graham crackers, crushed fine
  • 1/2 lb. cut up marshmallows
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 egg whites, beaten stiff
  • 3/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 small can chocolate syrup


Place half of cracker crumbs in bottom of buttered dish. Combine beaten egg whites, marshmallows, and nuts and pour over crumbs. Combine egg yolks, butter, sugar, and chocolate syrup and beat until very stiff. The longer this is beaten, the stiffer it gets. Pour over first mixture and cover with remaining crumbs. Place in refrigerator for 24 hours. Serve with whipped cream.

Quick Key Lime Pie: 1 can condensed milk (not evaporated), 1/4 cup lime juice (I use bottled key lime juice), 1 large (or 2 small) tubs Cool Whip (I use the creamy when I can find it). Fold together and put into crust. Either freeze it or let it set for an hour or so in refrigerator. If freezing, let it sit out on counter for about 30 minutes for easier cutting.

In a large bowl mix together sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice; combine well. Mix in berries. Fold in cool whip. Spoon into crust. Freeze 5 hours or until set. Let stand 30 to 40 min. before serving.

I am looking for a dessert recipe that has a graham cracker crust, filling, and is topped with chocolate frosting. It tastes just like a chocolate eclair.
