Forget the 5 stars this is a 10 star. This recipe was extremely easy to make and it was delicious. I made it for my first thanksgiving this year and it was only one i didn't have leftovers for. This is a surefire way to make the family happy! Oh yes i didn't use the pie crust instead I used a chocolate pre made ready crust. It tastes good with the oreo kind also

I'll give this 4 stars because the mint overpowered the chocolate. I reccommend using 1/2 of the mint called for unless you want to rename this...mint chocolate mousse pie. This recipe is incredibly easy to make although it looks difficult. Next time, I will adjust the mint and be able to taste the chocolate part of the pie and will be serving it up every St. Patricks Day! It will be a 5 star recipe then. Thanks!

This is an excellent pie. My whole family loved it. My only tiny criticism is that it doesn't look very elegant.
