      Well I wouldn't say this pie is easy or simple to make but it did taste good. I think if I made it again I would also add a touch of peppermint extract to the candy cane layer to up that flavor a bit. It was kind of difficult getting the candycanes in powder form. I didn't know whether to get semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips so we went with regular semi-sweet but I think next time I would use milk chocolate. That being said, the pie is beautiful and would make a wonderful ending to any holiday meal. Thank you for sharing. I took a picture and as soon as food.com cooperates I will upload it!
