INGREDIENTS

    CINNAMON GRAHAM CRACKER CRUST
  • 12 sheets cinnamon graham crackers
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • LEMON LIME CREAM FILLING
  • 2 - 14oz cans sweetened condensed milk
  • The juice of 2 medium limes
  • The juice of 1 1/2 medium lemons
  • 4 scoops Great Lakes Lemon + Lime Collagen Hydrolysate
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • FROG MARSHMALLOWS
  • Marshmallow Coating Powder (2 Tbsp corn starch and 1/4 cup powdered sugar, combined)
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 Tbsp Great Lakes Beef Gelatin
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar plus 2 Tbsp
  • 2 Tbsp light corn syrup
  • 1/3 cup cold water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tsp matcha, spirulina, or pandan leaf powder (to color the frogs)
  • 2 Tbsp dark chocolate chips or melting wafers
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips/wafers
  • 1/8 cup pink melting wafers* (optional, to add cheeks)
  • Toothpicks
  • Wax paper

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Use a food processor or blender to grind the graham crackers into crumbs. Transfer the crumbs to a mixing bowl and stir in the butter and salt until evenly combined.
  • the crust mixture in a 9″ pan and press firmly into the bottom and up the sides of the pan (a spoon or measuring cup helps with this). Bake for 8-10 minutes or just until the edges of the crust are starting to brown.
  • Allow the crust to cool while working on the filling.
  • Combine all of the filling ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend on medium low for 1 minute until thoroughly combined. Pour the filling over your prepared crust and give the pie a tap on the counter to remove any air bubbles.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the top is mostly set with just a little jiggle.
  • Remove from the oven, and let the pie cool completely before transferring to the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight to cool and set completely.
  • While you are waiting on the pie you can work on the marshmallows!
  • Pour 1/3 cup cold water in the bowl of an electric mixer, and stir in the gelatin. Allow the gelatin to soften while you make the syrup.
  • In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, ¼ cup water, and light corn syrup. Stir, and cook over medium heat until the sugar dissolves.
  • Turn the heat up to high, and continue to cook (without stirring) until the syrup reaches 240° F on a candy thermometer.
  • With the mixer on low, slowly (and carefully) pour the syrup into the softened gelatin. Gradually increase the speed to high, and whip until soft peaks form and hold their shape, about 8-10 minutes. Add the vanilla extract and natural coloring of choice, and whip just until it is incorporated.
  • Divide the marshmallow fluff between 2 piping bags – 1 fitted with a #1A piping tip and 1 with a #3 or 4 piping tip.
  • Line a baking sheet with wax paper and dust with the coating powder (this prevents the marshmallow from sticking). You can place the template underneath the wax paper, as a guide.
  • Begin by piping the bodies of the frogs with the larger tip. Then go back and pipe the eyes and legs. You can use a little warm water to smooth out any bumps (simply dip a clean finger into a mug with a little warm water and tap down on any areas that need fixed. You don’t want too much water on the marshmallows, so I like to keep a paper towel nearby.
  • Allow the frogs to set for at least 4 hours. To make the faces you can melt the chocolate and either draw the designs directly on top of the marshmallows (once they are ready), or make the eyes and smiles on wax paper and transfer them to the tops of the frogs while they are sticky.
  • When you are ready to decorate and eat the pie, carefully remove the frogs from the wax paper. Pipe or dollop whipped cream on top, add your frogs and enjoy!
  • Leftover pie can be loosely covered and stored in the refrigerator for about 2 days or wrapped tightly and frozen to store longer. Please let me know if you try this tutorial, I would love to see your version!
