    Graham Cracker Crust
  • 9 whole graham crackers, ground finely in a food processor
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons Nutella
  • 1 ounce semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, melted
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • Coffee Ganache
  • 12 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate (do not exceed 61% cacao), finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter, cut into 1/2' cubes
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons finely ground coffee beans
  • Meringue
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Instructions

  2. Coffee Ganache
  3. Place chocolate and butter in a large bowl. Bring cream, coffee, and 2 Tbsp. water to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove from heat; cover and let steep for 5 minutes.
  4. Strain cream mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into bowl with chocolate and butter; discard coffee grounds. Stir until melted and ganache is smooth. Pour into chilled crust; smooth top. Chill until set, about 1 hour.
  5. Meringue
  6. Using an electric mixer with clean, dry beaters on medium speed, beat egg whites in a medium bowl until light and frothy. Add sugar in 4 additions, beating for 1 minute after each addition. Continue beating egg whites until stiff and glossy.
  7. Spoon meringue over coffee ganache; swirl decoratively with a spatula or the back of a spoon. Using a kitchen torch, if desired, toast meringue until golden brown in spots. DO AHEAD: Pie can be made 8 hours ahead. Keep chilled.
