Marshmallow Grasshopper Pie

After a hearty meal, this refreshing pie hits the spot. I always make this festive treat whenever my son comes to visit; he loves to add sweet cherries on top. Cherries or not, the chocolate and mint are definitely meant for each other. —Sally Vandermus, Rochester, Minnesota
