Dealer Joe’s Candy Potato & Marshmallow Pixie Pie Combine

Trader Joe's Sweet Potato & Marshmallow Pixie Pie Mix

Based on my pretty spouse, with whom I’m about to rejoice eight years of principally happy-occasionally cussed marriage, there are some very questionable Google outcomes on the market when you have been to seek for the phrases “pixie pie” on the interwebs. I am simply gonna take her phrase for it, and maybe attempt to reduce anybody’s probability of coming throughout any, by scripting this evaluation right here of Dealer Joe’s Candy Potato & Marshmallow Pixie Pie Combine.

Mmm…pixie pie…I by no means heard of it. What’s it?

Nicely, cannot discover out with out doing that internet search. Oh nicely.

In any case, we’ll go along with the field description, which says one thing to the impact of “magical deal with” and “little decide me up” and all that jazz. Sounds good. We’ll go along with that.

In contrast to our final baking expedition, I did not assist this time round, however from what I hear, it is easy sufficient to make. Contained in the field are three combine packets: one for crust, one for potato filling, one for marshmallow fluff, Good lord, there’s loads of marshmallow, nearly like a cross between the Keep Puft Marshmallow Man and a criminal offense scene. All you’ll want to add is a little bit butter and “possibly” a little bit water and an egg, comply with the easy directions, and voila, in about half an hour’s time….it is pixie pie time!

It is a actually tasty dessert. Boasting a traditional graham cracker crust, the shell will get inflexible and buttery and strong really surprisingly nicely. All the higher to carry all of the gooey innards, I might say. The candy potatoes get heat and smooshy and provide so, a lot consolation vibe with some brown sugary goodness, it is nearly off the charts. And people marshmallows…I swear. Sandy mentioned she put in lower than half the packet. I nearly cannot consider that, due to how nicely the fluff lined and caramelized on prime, whereas switching up layers and selfblending with the potato portion. All that offers up a sugary binge that verges on being overwhelming earlier than melding nicely with the opposite tastes of the pie.

Altogether, the pie tastes one thing like a blondie, and has a not-quite-brownie, not-quite-usual-pie really feel. It is likely to be value a shot to throw in some chopped pecans to approximate a pecan pie, if that is your factor. Truly, if there was some option to Frankenstein collectively this pie with these maple pecan bites from just a few weeks again, there is likely to be probably the most excellent dessert ever! Whilst is, the pie is fairly wealthy and pretty decadent – take too massive a bit, you will desire a nap.

For sure, the pie is a complete, full, ineffable calorie bomb. That is our largest factor. Like, eat a slice, and it is salad for the following three days. Sandy, the extra wholesome bean-counter out of us, has no different complaints than that, and in act of solidarity, me neither. Darn good dessert, and for under $2.99! Good! Matching fours.
