My family looks forward to this fluffy pie every Christmas. No one can resist the combination of refreshing mint and luscious chocolate. Plus, the six-ingredient recipe is a snap to prepare—and the pretty pastel green color is festive for the occasion.—Lindsey Dorn, New Glarus, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 22, 2013

My husband and son loved this pie. It was very easy to make. I didn't change a thing. The mint flavor isn't overwhelming. The creme de cacao and creme de menthe are a perfect flavor combination in this pie. I just served it with a dollop of whipped cream.

This is the same recipe my mom has been making for as long as I can remember. It's a family favorite, passed down from her mother. An excellent St.Patty's Day dessert as well.
