RECIPE: Chocolate Peppermint Pie

February 19th is Chocolate Mint Day. You could grab a York Peppermint Pattie, or you could make this easy pie.

It contains both white and semi-sweet chocolate chips and crushed peppermint candies, plus an Oreo cookie crumb crust.

The active time is 30 minutes, but it takes 6 hours to set in the fridge. So get started!

Note that, like a mousse, this recipe is not cooked. So if you have any health concerns, use Safest Choice pasteurized eggs.

HOLIDAY NOTE: If you make this during the holiday season, you can garnish it with miniature candy canes.

    3. ADD the white chocolate to the sugar and eggs, beating on medium to combine. By hand, fold in the whipped cream. Gently stir in the peppermint and pour into the pie crust. Refrigerate for 15 minutes. Meanwhile…

    4. STIR the chocolate chips into reserved 1/2 cup cream cheese mixture. Remove pie from refrigerator. Slowly pour chocolate mixture over pie. Spread to cover pie, or use knife to swirl chocolate. Freeze, covered, until firm.
