“I call this one Internet Pie because, like the internet, it takes a lot of steps to make it work! LOL! But also like the internet it is delicious and fun to share with friends and co-workers. Mine love it when I send over slices to their cubicles while they're workin' hard. Like a FWD full of kitten pictures, it always brightens up a bad day.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • Crust
  • 5 -6 fruit roll-ups, depending on the size of your pie pan
  • 1 12 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs (if you can make your own you'll need about 16 graham crackers)
  • 13 cup sugar
  • 18 tablespoon salt
  • 12 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • Filling
  • 1 (8 ounce) packagevanilla pudding
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate, nesquik powder
  • 1 12 cups marshmallow cream
  • 1 12 cups milk, plus 1/4 cup milk
  • Topping
  • 5 Jolly Rancher candies
  • 12 gummy bears (actually "Gummi" but the Zaar won't accept it!)
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest

Directions

  1. Begin by making the crust: Combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, cardamom, and salt and stir until well mixed.
  2. Gently melt butter in a microwave-safe bowl, then slowly add to your crumb mixture.
  3. When everything is evenly incorporated, pour into a pie pan and use gentle pressure to smooth out the mixture until it evenly conforms to the pan. It's easiest if you use your hands; getting prissy with a spatula is going to lead to a lumpy crust and no one likes that.
  4. Bake the crust at 375 for about 5 minutes or until golden. Times will vary.
  5. While the crust cools, begin making your filling: Combine the package of pudding with the Chocolate and Strawberry Nesquik.
  6. Slowly pour 1 1/2 cups of milk in, stirring all the while. If it seems a little dry once all the milk is in, then start adding the additional 1/4 of milk a dribble at a time. However, you are going to want this to be thick so I don't recommend a runny texture.
  7. Now gently fold in 1/2 cup of marshmallow fluff.
  8. Line the graham cracker crust with slices of fruit leather. How many you use will depend on how big the slices are for the brand you buy. It's okay if pieces overlap and hang over the edge of the pan. If you do not like the pieces hanging over the edge, then go ahead and trim them.
  9. Pour the filling into the pie pan. You have two options here: You can allow the pie to at least achieve a soft set, and then spread the remaining marshmallow fluff on the top OR you can go ahead and put the marshmallow fluff on top now. It will be more difficult to do if you do not let the pudding-based filling set but it is possible; especially if you don't mind messy dollops of the marshmallow fluff instead of a smooth meringue-like topping. Whichever option you choose, Internet Pie needs a minimum of two hours to set. Longer is better. (Maybe I should call it Dial-Up Pie! LMAO!).
  10. Finally -- and I recommend doing this after the pie is set -- take your Jolly Ranchers and (while they are still wrapped) place on a cutting board and cover with a clean kitchen towel. Use a mallet (or a particularly heavy can if you do not own a kitchen or even a regular hard rubber mallet) to crush the candies. Use these crushed candies to decorate the top of the pie. I like to use them as a thick, colorful ring around the outer edge of the pie. Then I arrange the Gummi Bears on the candy ring (obviously you can do any arrangement that you find aesthetically pleasing; this is just how I do it). Lastly, I sprinkle the orange zest all over the pie.
  11. OPTIONAL: Serve with a dollop of Aunt Bo's Comfort Sauce. I will be posting the recipe shortly! :D.
