Ingredients

Scale

For the crust

  • 28 chocolate sandwich cookies such as Oreos or bourbon biscuits
  • 4 tablespoons (2 ounces) butter, melted

For the filling

  • 3 cups mini-marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup creme de menthe
  • 1/4 cup creme de cacao blanc
  • 11/2 cups heavy cream or double cream
  • Green food coloring, optional

Instructions

For the crust

  1. Smash up your cookies into crumbs in a food processor or in a bag with a rolling pin. Mix crumbs with melted butter. Press your crumb mixer into the bottom and up the sides of a 10-inch tart pan. Put your crust in the fridge while you get on with your filling.

For the filling

  1. In a small sauce pan over low heat, stir together marshmallows and whole milk until the marshmallows are melted and the mixture starts to foam. Remove the pan from the heat.
  2. Whisk in creme de menthe and creme de cacao blanc. If you want to add food coloring, add it to your marshmallow mixture now so you don’t overmix your cream later and risk it curdling. Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat your cream until it just barely starts to hold a peak. If you overbeat it, it will be tricky to mix later.
  4. Add your marshmallow mixture to your cream and fold and gently stir the two together until smooth. This should be a light fluffy, wet mixture. You’ll worry that it won’t set, but it will.
  5. Fetch your crust from the fridge. You might want to place it on a plate in case any of your filling leaks out. Pour the filling into the crust. If you have an extra cookie lying around, you can crush it on top for garnish.
  6. Put your pie in the fridge and wait (NOOOOOOOO!!!!!) a day. I really recommend letting this one set overnight as it’s quite a light mixture and you’ll risk your pie oozing everywhere if you try to serve it too soon.
