MY REVIEW

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!

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.)
