Made this to go with our St. Paddy's Day dinner and it was wonderful, but VERY easy, rich and creamy which was perfect for my "sweets loving DGS". I did make a few changes; didn't have mint cookies so used a pre-made choc. cookie crust, added mint extract to the pudding mix and instead of crumpled cookies used semi-sweet choc chips in the pudding mix. Then topped with the left over cool whip as instructed, made a choc ganache from the left over chips and drizzled over the top of the finished pie. It was simple, pretty and a nice ending to our dinner.
My family loved this pie! I did make two changes. Instead of layering part of the cool whip on top - I mixed it in. And instead of melting chocolate to drizzle over the top my 7 yr old son thought it would be cool to smash cookies. So he helped me sprinkle them on top. Very easy to make! Made for the November Aussie/NZ recipe swap.
