Sweet treat for Labor Day Weekend!

Going to a party this weekend?  Headed to one last big cookout before summer ends?  Don't know what to bring?  Then try this super easy frozen cool whip pie.

What you'll need:

1 container of Cool whip (frozen)
4 Hershey chocolate bars
Andes mints or baking chips
1 prepared Oreo pie crust

My mom used to make this pie when Hershey's made a Mint Chocolate bar. Please tell me why Hershey's stopped making those things? Let's be honest, I was like 8 when they stopped making them.  But it still hurts.

So here's a simple alternative.
All you have to do is melt regular chocolate bars and Andes mints (some stores have Andes baking chips) on low heat in a saucepan.  Add as much mint candy as you want.

Put frozen cool whip in a big bowl.  Pour melted chocolate over the cool whip and stir.  The frozen cool whip will help solidify the chocolate.  Spoon into the Oreo pie crust and place in the freezer.  

Trust me.....your BBQ buddies will love this.
