A creamy, silky, light, mousse-y, but rich, spiked chocolate mint pie, this Chocolate Creme de Menthe Pie is a cinch to whip up. Simple, quick, and no bake!
Okay, so the Chocolate Irish Cream Pie that I posted a few days ago? This Chocolate Creme de Menthe Pie is basically the same pie, but substitute Creme de Menthe for Bailey’s. Oh, and add some Creme de Menthe to the whipped cream on top so it’s nice and minty too.
That’s really the only difference – I super cheated when I made this Chocolate Creme de Menthe Pie, but as the saying goes, why reinvent the wheel? (Don’t you just hate that saying?? But it’s true.) I made and loved that Chocolate Irish Cream Pie, and if you read that post, you know that it was not a recipe I planned. I didn’t set out to make a Bailey’s Chocolate Silk Pie, but it just kinda happened.
I set out to make a different kind of pie, and I ended up with a chocolate silk pie spiked with Bailey’s. Hey, that’s a great day. This Chocolate Creme de Menthe Pie was a product of that same train of thought. If the Bailey’s Chocolate Silk Pie is wonderful, why wouldn’t a Creme de Menthe Pie version be wonderful? It is! Go figure.
This is like a Grasshopper Pie. I’ve wanted to make a Grasshopper Pie for a long time, but it always gets put off. Here we go, this is basically a Grasshopper Pie. A creamy, silky, light, mousse-y, but rich, spiked chocolate mint pie.
