Chocolate Mint Pie

Recipe by  

"This pie has a chocolate cookie crust and an ice cream filling, but the creme de menthe meringue topping is what makes it special. It is a perfect St. Patricks day treat. Vanilla ice cream can be substituted for the mint chocolate chip."

This went over huge! I ended up using peppermint extract and green food colouring instead of creme de menthe as I could only find a $20 bottle of the stuff, and I was not spending that kind of money on something I needed only a few tablespoons of. I think I should have either lined the bottom with wax paper or sprayed it with no stick pray b/c I had a hard time getting the pieces of pie out. But it was so incredibly delicious.

I doubled the ingredients and made this in a 9 by 13 inch pan to take for a birthday party and everybody loved it. I didn't have enough mint-chocolate icecream, so I used vanilla for the bottom layer. The cut pieces looked very pretty with the different colors.

Delicious and easy to make. We used Haagen Daaz mint chocolate chip ice cream and this came out to die for! Everyone devoured it. Definitely plan to make this one again!

Very good dessert recipe. I served this for our St. Patrick's Day dinner, and it was a big hit. Will make a good summer-time dessert.

Use a good quality mint ice cream. A food torch on the meringue before serving makes it easy. Kids will eat this up.

I made this for our St. Patrick's Day Dinner club. All guests gave it a thumbs up! I was short on time, so I used the Nabisco pre made Oreo pie crust...worked out great. I couldn't find higher quality brand in choc. mint at our store, so I used a "regular" brand. It still tasted great. Because I love "presentation" I would swirl a little melted chocolate on the plate next time before putting the pie slice on the plate. The slice with the layers makes a nice presentation. I would love to experiment with different flavors like raspberry ice cream with chambord liquer using the same concept!
