I doubled the recipe and added 4 eggs. The cheesecake took over an hour to cook but came out beautifully. I decorated the top with Chocolate Ganache and Whipped Cream. No one in my family is crazy about sour cream. Happy St Patrick's Day!

My family was not thrilled with this dessert. The mint was a little over-powering. I definitely will not try this again.

A nice variation on grasshopper pie. I made my own crust (2C chocolate wafer crumbs, 2T sugar, 6T melted margarine) in a springform pan. I only had one pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, but it still turned out fine.

I made this for Thanksgiving and it was the only dessert dish that was empty when we left! My family loved it!

I switched the amounts of cacao and mint (using mint flavoring rather than creme de menthe), and I made my own crust, and it came out very good.

This recipe is tolerable, but not our favorite. The creme de menthe made the pie taste weird (imagine fruity, fake mint flavor) and if I were to make it again, I'd use peppermint schnapps or extract.
