Instructions

To prepare the crust

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Combine all of the ingredients for the crust in a large bowl. Stir until they are well combined and uniform. (it will be pretty crumbly)
  • Press this mixture into a 9" pie plate using your hands or the back of a spoon. Make sure that the mixture goes up the sides of the pan as well.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool before filling.

For the Filling

  • Using an electric mixer, combine the butter and cream cheese until they are well combined. Add the erythritol and the whipping cream and continue mixing until everything is incorporated.
  • Next, mix in the vanilla and 1/2 tsp of peppermint extract - mix well and then taste. Add more peppermint extract to taste - but be careful! A little peppermint goes a long way!
  • Roughly chop your chocolate chips into smaller pieces (skip this step if you are using mini chips)
  • Fold the chocolate chips (reserve about 2 tsp worth), and 2-3 drops of red food coloring into the cream cheese mixture. 
  • Pour into prepared (and cooled) pie crust. Top with crushed peppermint and reserved chocolate.
  • Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.
