Fabulous recipe that I have made 3 years in a row now for each Christmas!! I substitute Peppermint Extract for the Vanilla extract, to add a stronger mint flavor, which I love. I recommend this to everyone that is a fan of Chocolate Mint!

I made this for a coworker's birthday and it was a huge hit. The only change I made is that I made an oreo crust by greasing the pan and pressing down food processed oreo crumbs. I baked this for 8 minutes and proceeded as directed. Thanks! This was easy and made me look like a master chef:)
