I'm being more of a foodie today, because the first two recipes I thought of are sweets or desserts. I of course believe in moderation and do enjoy a great dessert every once in awhile.
6 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup creme de menthe
2 Tbsp creme de cacao
2 cups whipping cream
chocolate wafer crust, chilled (see directions below)
In a saucepan combine marshmallows and milk. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until marshmallows melt. Cool stirring every 5 minutes. Combine liqueurs, stir into marshmallow mix. Whip cream until soft peaks form. Fold marshmallow mixture into whipped cream; turn into chilled chocolate crust. Freeze several hours until firm. If desired garnish pie with chocolate curls.
Chocolate Wafer Crust
1 1/2 cups crushed chocolate wafers (25 wafers)
6 Tbsp margarine/butter, melted
Combine and turn into 9" plate. Press into bottom and sides and chill 1 hour or until firm.
My Aunt suggests making 1 1/2 times the recipe and filling 2 pies.
1 - 8 oz package cream cheese
1 cup mini marshmallows
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup cherries (finely cut)
1/2 cup walnuts (optional)
In a 3 quart saucepan, melt first four ingredients over very low heat. Remove from heat, add cherries and walnuts. Cool completely. With teaspoon, drop batter into small bowl filled half way with coconut. Shape into ball with fingers. Put on plate and refrigerate. Keep cool.
