    About this recipe: This is a gorgeous and cool summer dessert. The layers of mint chocolate chip ice cream and crushed chocolate biscuits are absolutely delicious, and the meringue on top is truly its crowning glory. Vanilla ice cream can be used instead of mint chocolate chip, if desired.

    This went over huge! I ended up using peppermint extract and green food colouring instead of creme de menthe as I could only find a $20 bottle of the stuff, and I was not spending that kind of money on something I needed only a few tablespoons of. I think I should have either lined the bottom with wax paper or sprayed it with no stick pray b/c I had a hard time getting the pieces of pie out. But it was so incredibly delicious.  -  04 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I doubled the ingredients and made this in a 9 by 13 inch pan to take for a birthday party and everybody loved it. I didn't have enough mint-chocolate icecream, so I used vanilla for the bottom layer. The cut pieces looked very pretty with the different colors.  -  11 Oct 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Delicious and easy to make. We used Haagen Daaz mint chocolate chip ice cream and this came out to die for! Everyone devoured it. Definitely plan to make this one again!  -  26 Dec 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
