Reviews for Mint Brownie Pie
"Was OK. I was expecting a chewy brownie but this was more cake like. If I make this again, I'll add more peppermint for a stronger taste."
"I had to bake mine an extra 5 minutes. I also used 1 1/4 c. heavy cream, whipped, in place of the Cool Whip. Delicious!"
"How line did your brownie actually take I'm at 20 min and it most definatly is not done ?"
"It was scrumptious - and so easy to make. The only change I made was using Hot Fudge Topping as a drizzle. I made it for my husband's meeting & they loved it."
"This recipe was fantastic! My family devoured it on Christmas Eve - it literally was gone in minutes with people asking for more. The only change I made was based off of a previous reviewer's suggestion. Instead of melting chocolate chips for the drizzle, I chopped up Andes mints into small pieces and distributed them across the top of the pie. Everyone loved it!"
"I made this for a church potluck, upping the peppermint extract to 3/4tsp. It was very tasty and gone in a flash! (Oh, and I used Hard Crack ice cream topping to drizzle and it cut very nicely.)"
"So yummy! I whipped this up in no time, and to rave reviews!"
"This is good, but it didn't have the wow factor for me. It does make a nice dessert for St. Patrick's Day, so I will make it again. The only change I would make is to skip drizzling the chooclate. It tastes good, but it doesn't cut nicely. Instead, I would opt for drizzling chocolate syrup or Sprinkling chopped Andes candies on top like I saw on the recipe for Grashopper pie."
"This is an impressive, easy to make dessert. It's great for St. Patrick's Day.
