chocolate wafer cookies, crushed
creme de menthe liqueur
white creme de cacao
whipping cream, whipped
whipped cream for garnish
Very, very good. I used a pre-made chocolate crust to save on time. Next time, I would add a wee bit less of the creme de menthe. I used regular (brown) creme de coco b/c I didn't have white, and it was fine -- did not turn the pie brown, just intensified the green. I also bought chocolate covered/candy-shelled mints, chopped them up, and sprinkled them on the top. Yum! Everyone loved it.
My boyfriend and I didn't like this at all. It tasted very boozy, even medicinal.
This Recipe is Great!
Some variations that I made: I used oreo cookies, chopped in a food processor for the crust. I also put them into muffin tins instead of making it a pie. I also topped each individual "pie" with chopped ande's mints.
Hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as I did (and my coworkers).
I made this a few days ago for my boyfriend because this one restaurant in town makes it and he loves it. Everything turned out alright, except I had a hard time getting the whipping cream to whip (sans electric mixer) so I went and bought some whipped cream and that worked fine. If you do that, I would probably suggest adding more than the 1 cup they have for the recipe. The 1/4 cup cream de menthe wasn't overly powering. On some pieces I could taste it more than others, but I'd stick with the 1/4 cup. Other than that, it turned out well! I also used a pre-made Oreo pie crust, so good!
I added a layer of mint chocolate chip ice cream to the top and sprinkled with broken andes mints. It was wonderful!
Made the recipe exactly as originally written. The only thing I added: before freezing, I pushed whole Oreos into the top and made a pretty design. I just wanted to use the extra cookies left over from the crust...and I think it did a nice job of adding a bit more chocolate flavor.
This was absolutely delicious and so easy to make. You can even buy a chocolate graham cracker crust to make it even easier!
I used Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur in place of the clear creme de coca and it was yummy. I've only made this once so I can not conset to the difference but I'm sticking to the white chocolate liqueur where 4 Tbs. might even be better!
