After a hearty meal, this light, refreshing pie hits the spot. Chocolate and mint are definitely meant for each other. I make this festive treat at Christmas and whenever my son comes to visit. He loves it with sweet cherries on top.

"I made this for our Christmas dessert. It was wonderful! Everyone raved about how good it was. It is a very easy recipe to make, I did not change a thing. My only suggestion is to watch the marshmallow creme setting up. Mine was setting up and ready after 45 minutes instead of the 60 minutes recommended. A real great recipe for the Holidays.
