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

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups plus 1 tablespoon chocolate wafer crumbs, divided
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 24 large marshmallows
  • 2/3 cup plus 1 cup heavy whipping cream, divided
  • 2 tablespoons clear creme de cacao
  • 2 tablespoons green creme de menthe

Directions

  1. Combine 1-1/2 cups wafer crumbs and butter. Press into an ungreased 9-in. pie plate. Bake at 350° for 5-7 minutes or until set. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. In a large heavy saucepan, combine marshmallows and 2/3 cup cream; cook and stir over low heat until marshmallows are melted. Remove from the heat. Stir in creme de cacao and creme de menthe. Transfer to a small bowl; refrigerate for 1 hour or until slightly thickened.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the remaining cream until stiff peaks form; fold into marshmallow mixture. Pour into crust. Sprinkle with remaining wafer crumbs. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
