1/4 c Sugar 1/4 c White creme de cacao
1/4 c Unsalted butter 4 lg Egg yolks

In a bowl, stir together the wafer crumbs, sugar, and butter until the
mixture is combined well. Pat mixture onto bottom and sides of a buttered
9-inch pie plate. Bake in the middle of a preheated 450f oven for 5
minutes. Let cool completely.

In a metal bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over 1/3 cup of the cream and let it
soften for 5 minutes. Whisk in the sugar, creme de menthe, creme de cacao,

cook the mixture, whisking constantly, until it measures 160f on a candy

is cooled and thickened. In another bowl, beat the remaining cream until
it holds stiff peaks. Fold it into the custard thoroughly.

Pour the filling into the crust and chill the pie for at least 4 hours or
until it is set. Sprinkle with grated chocolate and serve.
