I am a big fan of chocolate and mint together, so I knew I was probably really going to like this pie. But it exceeded my expectations!

That filling is so light and fluffy, it just melts on your tongue. And it leaves behind the most incredible rich, dark chocolate flavor, enhanced with a strong hit of cool mint. Like a fresh breeze on a summer day! And the chocolate cookie crust is the perfect crunchy compliment to all that soft goodness.

Best of all, it was super simple to make. You barely have to turn the oven on!
