- 300gr bourbon biscuits
- 6oz butter
- 180gr white marshmallows
- 6floz whole milk
- 1 teaspoon of crushed peppermint sweets
- drop of green food colouring
- 500ml double cream
Chill in fridge.
Over a low heat melt the marshmallows in the milk, take off heat and add peppermints and green food dye. Cool for few minutes.
Whip 300ml of the double cream and fold into the marshmallow mixture.
Pour into the biscuit base and chill in fridge for 1-2 hours.
Whip remaining cream and place on top of pie once chilled and set!
Was a little worried when the marshmallow and milk mixture was cooling as it slightly separates and looks a little odd but it was fine once combined with the cream.
This mixture is really runny when you pouring it onto base and I thought that there was no way it was going to set but it did.
I probably could have added slightly more green colouring but it always so hard to judge what is too much/little but still quite pleased with the outcome!
It was a big hit with the kids and even the fussy hubby liked it. Will definitely make this one again, am going to try a few different combinations so watch this space!!
