“This is a recipe from my husband's mother. It doesn't take long to make and is a tasty treat around the holidays. We always have it at St. Patricks Day. You can also use about 300 ml whipping cream, whipped, in place of the Dream Whip.”
1 pie

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the crust, crush chocolate wafers and mix with melted butter.
  2. Press into a 9 or 10 inch pie plate.
  3. An alternative is to just take the whole wafers and line the pie plate with them, breaking them in half where necessary to fill in the gaps.
  4. Then melt the marshmallows and milk in a saucepan, over a low heat.
  5. Once melted, add creme de menthe and creme de cacao.
  6. Prepare one envelope of Dream Whip, fold into marshmallow mixture, put into crust and chill.
  7. To decorate, break a chocolate wafer in half and rub the two edges together over the pie to make a nice sprinkling of chocolate crumbs.
  8. This is a fun dessert around Saint Paddy's day, but if you want to make it for Christmas, substitute crushed candy canes, melted into the milk, for the creme de menthe.
