"Great recipe. Instead of the graham cracker crust, I use a crust made of crushed chocolate animal crackers sprinkled with a little sugar and melted butter to make it stick to the sides. I always get lots of wows with this. Instead of the crumbs for the top, I sprinkle crushed peppermint candies on the whipped topping. Very festive. You can also make 2 pies with this or 1 pie and the extra can be saved in a container and served up as a fluffy dessert. You can also mix other icecreams and puddings for different flavours like eggnog ice cream and vanilla pudding, strawberry icecream and vanilla pudding, coffee icecream and chocolate pudding, vanilla icecream and butterscotch pudding. There are lots of options. Thanks so much"
