This came in a little booklet with the Feb/March 2009 Taste of Home. It is really good! "Cooking time" is chilling time.

An easy & minty pudding pie. I left out the food coloring and instead sprinkled on a little green decorator sugar before adding the chopped candy. This doesn't keep for a long time in the fridge because, after all, it is pudding & thawed whipped topping. The next time I will make this, not as a pie, but more like a trifle with layers of the chopped candies and chocolate crumbs.
