    I don't like how it looks. I think it will be too sweet as well. I didn't add the candies on top that's way too much. I tried making my own oreo crust with mint oreos and it flopped. I haven't tasted it yet due to it being made for a family gathering. I have a bad feeling that it will be a flop. Tasting the ingredients as I put them on, they didn't taste that well. I should have just stuck with a frozen yogurt pie those as soo good.

    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.

    Easy to make but not a "gotta have that" recipe score.
