Great for St. Patrick's Day celebrations! This is an old recipe from Hershey's Cocoa. Cook time is chill time.

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.
