Yummy! Was very rich, and smooth texture. I used Oreos for the crust and garnish. I probably could omit the sugar from the crust and would have been fine. I thought about trying with lower fat/sugar ingredients but since it was for photo tag game didn't want to risk it not turning out :) But I think I will try that next time. When I covered it, the foil touched the top of the pie so it wasn't as smooth anymore :( I just covered it up with Oreos on top though! I agree with other reviewer, could use a little less extract.

This pie has a very nice texture, sets up really nice. I didn't have any red food colouring so I sprinkled red sugar spinkles on top and it looked really nice. It has a very strong peppermint flavour, too strong in my opinion. If I make this again (the vote is that I will) I would only use 1/4 tsp. of extract. After tasting it I garnished the serving with chocolate syrup to decrease the peppermint a bit. It worked and not a crumb was left on any plate. I also wanted to say that even with all those marshmallows it does not taste overly sweet which is nice. Thanks for a very good recipe.
