    Looks so good! I want some!
    This is a very good, very easy pie to make. I cheated and used a pre-made chocolate crumb crust...made it even better. A squirt of Hershey's syrup across the top really made for a good presentation. I'll make again & again. Thanks for the recipe!
    It would be great for summer desert.
    I've made this before using after-dinner mints instead. Always a favorite.
