Never fear, readers. This is actually a very easy recipe, assuming you know the difference between crème de menthe and mint extract!
Crust - 1 1/4 cup chocolate wafer crumbs and 1/3 cup melted butter (or just use a store bought crust if you don't want to mess with this).
24 large marshmallows
1/2 cup milk
1 package of Dream Whip, prepared
4 tbsp. crème de menthe
For the crust, mix and press into a buttered pie plate.
For the filling, dissolve marshmallows in hot milk over a double broiler. Cool. Prepare Dream Whip and add crème de menthe. If desired, add extra green food coloring at this point. Combine the two mixtures and pour in crust. Top with crème de menthe chocolate pieces and freeze.
It was fun to share this with the boys, as they loved it every bit as much as I did as a kid.
