Perfect for a St Paddy's Day party.
It turned out great and was a huge it. So green and the mint was perfect w/ the chocolate.
Just a note- be sure that the cool whip is completely thawed.
I also used Hershey's special dark cocoa and an Oreo pie crust.

I can't even begin to express how yum-a-licious this was. Awesome, wonderful, crazy good. And to beat it all, it was super easy. I paired it up with your recipe#353150 and it turned out perfect! Thanks. :-) Made for Fall '09 PAC.

5 stars all the way. I didn't have any green food coloring. I had little pie tins with grahm cracker already in them, so I used these, so everyone would have their own little one. I added chocolate chips to the top for color. I also used a sugar sub instead of regular sugar. This was very tasty and I will be making again with the green food coloring.
