Instructions
  1. In the top of a double boiler, combine milk and marshmallows. Place over simmering water and heat until marshmallows are melted and mixture is smooth and creamy. Set aside to cool.
  2. Stir in the liqueurs, mixing well. Whip the cream and fold in gently. (Don't overmix or the pie won't chill well). Spread mixture into prepared crust, smoothing top.
  3. Cover and place pie in freezer for 3-4 hours or longer. Just before serving, garnish top with grated or shaved chocolate bar.
Recipe Notes

For the liqueurs, you can use 1/4 cup Creme de Menthe only if you wish, but the additional of the Creme de Cacao results in a smoother and mellower flavor.  If you wish to make your own crust, blend 1 1/4 cups fine chocolate cookie crumbs and 1/4 cup melted butter or margarine. Press into bottom and sides of 9" pie crust pan. Bake at 350 F. for 10 minutes and cool well before adding the pie filling.
