Add two squares of chocolate and a touch of marshmallow cream. Stick about ten mini marshmallows into the marshmallow cream. Wet the edges of the dough. Fold the dough over the s’mores toppings, pressing it in place. From there fold the edges to press them in place.

Brush the whole hand pie (top and bottom) with a beaten egg white. Grease the grill grates. Grill the s’mores hand pies for about two minutes over medium heat for each side.

Finally, move the hand pies to the upper rack to cook for an additional minute in the indirect heat. After removing them from the grill, put a little marshmallow cream on top of each hand pie. Stick a segment of chocolate in the middle of the marshmallow cream to hold it in place.
