"I have been making this refreshing pie for years. It's great for a summertime BBQ or around the holidays. Chocolate & mint go so great together, purchased crust & instant pudding make it a snap to put together. Keeper recipe."

"Easy and tasty. Chocolate crumb crust is just right for it. We used regular whipped cream instead of whipped topping and it worked fine, just took more time."

"Adding Nesquick chocolate powder to the milk (Bunny Milk) when you mix the pudding makes it extra chocolatey fudgy. In case you didn't know! :)"
