My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallow Pie

Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallow Pie

My oldest son totally loves anything peppermint.  I remember thinking it was such a cute idea to put candy canes on the tree when he was three years old.  He woke up earlier than me one morning and ate 3 before I knew what he was up too!  
Then my middle son thinks that peppermint flavored anything is just too "spicy".   He now asks before he eats anything new if  it's spicy.  I'm reminded of those memories when my 5 year old self wouldn't eat a candy cane because it's too "spicy'.  I don't remember the moment I discovered that it wasn't as hot if you paired it with chocolate!

It's around this time that I love to try to fit peppermint into most of the sweet treats I make.  And I especially try to mix in some chocolate when I can!

And not every holiday treat needs to be warm.  This Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallow Pie is made with yummy ice cream so it can be made ahead and served frozen.  It would even be great idea to have a couple on hand to give to friends that drop by.  Just make a couple extra, tie a ribbon around them, and keep them in your freezer.
