Snow days in my childhood meant sledding down our neighborhood streets for hours and coming inside to warm up with hot cocoa with marshmallows and homemade chocolate chip cookies. This pie is a slice of childhood nostalgia with gooey, melty chocolate chips and toasted marshmallows. Snow is purely optional. 🍪☃️
