Scale

Ingredients

For crust:

  • 1 ½ cups chocolate wafer crumbs
  • 6 Tbs butter, melted

For filling:

  • 4 Tbs sugar
  • 2 Tbs + 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy or whipping cream
  • Chocolate shavings and sliced almonds, for decoration

Instructions

For crust:

  1. Preheat oven to 350º.
  2. Mix crumbs with butter until it looks like wet sand.
  3. Place mixture in a 9-inch pie pan with removable bottom. Carefully press evenly against bottom and sides of the pan.
  4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool on wire rack completely.

For filling:

  1. In a small saucepan combine sugar and cornstarch.
  2. Add milk and cook on medium heat until mixture boils. Stir constantly to avoid lumps.
  3. Let it boil 1 minutes, whisking constantly.
  4. Remove from heat and immediately add chocolate and mint extract. Combine well. The mixture will look like a jello gone bad, don’t worry.
  5. Cover with plastic wrap touching the surface and let cool to room temperature. You can speed this process by refrigerating it.
  6. With electric mixer, beat chocolate mixture a bit.
  7. Add cream and slowly beat until smooth, about 3 minutes.
  8. Put filling in prepared crust and spread evenly.
  9. Refrigerate until ready to serve, at least 2 hours.
  10. Sprinkle with chocolate shavings and almonds if desired.
