My favourite flavour combination is chocolate and mint. My Grandmother’s ‘Grasshopper Pie’ has always put a smile on my face!

Crème de Menthe dessert

Serves 8-10

About 500g plain chocolate biscuits, crushed

2 tbsp melted butter

100ml crème de menthe liqueur

Few drops green food colouring

250g packet white marshmallows, cut up a bit with scissors

1 cup milk

2 cups cream

1. Preheat oven to 180oC.

2.. Add melted butter to crushed chocolate biscuits and stir.

3. Put ⅔ of the biscuit mixture in a 28cm x 20cm baking dish and pat down firmly. Bake in the oven for 5 minutes. Allow to cool completely.

4. In a small pot, very gently, melt the marshmallows in the milk. Cool.

5. Whip the cream and add 100ml crème de menthe. Add a couple of drops green food colouring so it is a very pale green (dark green would be off-putting, don’t you think?!)

6. Gently fold the marshmallow mixture with the whipped cream mixture.

7. Pour into the baking dish with biscuit crust. Scatter the remaining ⅓ biscuit crumble on the top and refrigerate for a couple of hours.
