I inherited the glomming gene from my grandpa. It's both a blessing, and a curse. We can sit down, eat gobs of chocolate, waddle away, at peace with ourselves, and ten pounds denser. Thanks to my DNA, I have always been a chocolate lover.
I am also a huge geek--calculus is my favorite math subject. I hope to wield a calculator for the powers of good someday. But for now, I'll bake desserts and answer questions about pi at scholar bowl meets.
This pie is in honor of Archimedes, who was the first mathematician to theoretically calculate the value of pi. My theory: all of the really special ingredients in this pie start with a letter in Archimedes' name.
If you can remember Archimedes, you have most of your shopping list. 

Cream cheese
Honey graham crackers
Ice cream
Mini marshmallows
Evaporated milk
Dark chocolate
Sugar (brown, powdered, and white)

There are two πs in this pie. But don't be fooled. This pie is not for the faint at heart. You should probably abstain from chocolate consumption for a few days before you commence the baking process. This is the epitome of π pie.

Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients and Utensils


•1 piece paper, ex: computer paper
• marker
• pastry brush
• pie pan (preferably clear glass)
• Small mixing bowl
• Medium/large mixing bowl
• Sauce pan

For the crust:

• 1 1/2 cups Honey graham cracker crumbs (I used 8 whole crackers)
• 1/3 cup crushed Oreos
• 4 Reese's peanut butter cups, quartered
• 1/4 cup white sugar
• 1/3 cup melted butter

For the pie:

• 1 1/2 cups flour

• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• 1/3 cup chopped unsalted almonds

For the fudge topping:

• 6 ounces evaporated milk
• 1 cup dark chocolate chips
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
I am going to definitely have to try that chocolate filling! Thank you for sharing, and good luck on the contest!
It turns out amazing, I have to say. :) You almost have to cut the richness with ice cream.
Yummy! That makes me hungry (and a little nauseous too- that is a lot of sugary-ness). I like the pi on the bottom crust.
