    This was very good. The filling / topping is DELICIOUS! The minty-ness is not overpowering, but rather subtle. Rather than make a whole "pie", I made individual "bites" by spooning the brownie mix into mini-muffin tins before baking (one pkg brownie mix makes about 30 minis). When they were done, I pressed a well into the center of each (while still warm). Topped with the filling and one Junior Mint candy on top of each.(I put the filling into a gallon ziploc bag & cut a bit off the corner so I could "pipe" the filling into the brownie cups) Brought them to two parties, and received many compliments. Thanks for the recipe  -  26 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I think this pie would be better without the coffee. There is a little bit too much going on with all the flavors. Its simple to make. The only difficult thing is that you can't find a brownie mix that is 13 ounces these days which makes for a really thick "crust". Not that my guests minded too much. Next time I will leave out the coffee and see if this is better.  -  26 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I thought this recipe was just OK. It wasn't nearly minty enough, in my opinion, and it was so rich we all could only eat a few bites (there were a lot of plates with half-eaten pieces, which I hate to see after that much work). I didn't use the coffee because I didn't have any on hand. I'm not sure if that would have improved the flavor or just made the mint even less noticable. I wouldn't make this pie again. It wasn't awful, but I'd rather find another recipe for next time with more mint and less heaviness.  -  17 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
