- 125 ml milk
- 160 grams mini marshmallows
- 1 jigger Crème de menthe
- 1 jigger Crème de cacao
- 365 ml double cream (heavy cream) whipped softly
- 150 grams Willie cacao ginger lime chocolate
- 500 g pre-baked pastry pie crust (one complete crust)
- Melt the marshmallows in hot milk, let the mixture cool then add the alcohol
- Now fold in the whipped cream then add the chocolate pieces
- Pour into the pie shell
Sprinkle a dusting of cocoa on top.
Chill for a few hours and serve with a slice of lime.
Instead of the pre-baked pie shell, create a no-bake pastry case with Dulce de Leche wafers if you want a fancy sweet pastry shell.
