"This was fantastic!"

"A terrific holiday dessert everyone young to old will love. I've been making this for years, and it's always a hit! Love the flavors of peppermint and chocolate together."

"It was good, but the cool whip needed a little texture in it for me. Next time I will use plan chocolate cookie wafers instead of the oreo type cookie. I would probably add some finely crushed peppermint candies to the cool whip. We all liked it and I will make it again."

"This is my most requested recipe. We love it."

"This was very simple to make. One thing--make sure the entire container of ice cream or Cool Whip is thoroughly thawed, or else there will be lumps when you try to spread it, and the layer below will be torn up. I used mint chocolate chip ice cream for a grasshopper-style dessert. Also I used chocolate graham crackers per the earlier comment. They worked well but were rather crumbly. I think the cream filling would help the crust hold together better."

"<p>I didn't actually make this recipe, but make one very similar. I just want to add the idea of using chocolate graham crackers rather than the filled cookies to not add the really bad for you filling. I know, they're yummy, but...</p>"
