After trying for about three months to make this pie and coming up against roadblocks (forgetting to buy marshmallows, ingredients going missing, and ants getting into the marshmallows when I finally bought them!), I made this pie for my dad for Father's Day. We all enjoyed it immensely! I don't have a springform pan, so I used an extra large purchased graham cracker pie crust. We can't get double cream here in the U.S., so I used the closest thing available...heavy whipping cream. Also, the directions don't say when to put in the chocolate powder, so I just added it to the marshmallows and milk while melting them. I should have done like Live, Laugh, Love, Cook did and wait for the marshmallow mixture to cool before adding the whipped cream, because the cream melted in and the pie wasn't as fluffy as it could have been. That certainly didn't affect the flavor, though! I served the slices of pie topped with a generous dollop of lightly sweetened, fresh whipped cream, which countered the rich sweetness of the pie nicely. I'll definitely make this again and I can't wait to see how the texture is when I allow the marshmallow mixture to cool before folding in the whipped heavy cream. Thanks for a great recipe, Trishie!
