"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!"

"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.)"

"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."
