Peppermint Pie

 

 

 

This is what we had for dessert today. It was fantastic! We only have a tiny box freezer (the kind inside the fridge), so it didn’t set well, but I’ll definitely make it again. I coloured mine minty green and added crushed mint candies and grated chocolate to the mix. To serve, I topped the pie with stiffly beaten cream and more grated chocolate. Decadent enough to be very festive, but refreshing enough not to overwhelm the taste buds after a heavy meal.

1/4 cup sugar
