    I gave this one star because this was the lowest review I could give. I made this pie according to the recipe for Thanksgiving. People who took a bite spit it out... even the children couldn't eat it! The gelatin gave the pie a strange texture; sort of like rubber. I have never written a review before, but this pie was just awful.
    Yum, yum, yum I try and make this every year for xmas and everyone loves it!!!
    DELICIOUS!!! And SOOOO pretty! So after reading the reviews, I used less gelatin. I also messed up my first batch of candy by cooking too long. I was waiting for the brown color that Paula had showed. By the time it got to that point it was too late. I still kept it and mixed it with whipped cream for a caramel whipped cream for something else. The second time around I didn't cook as long and removed from heat while still red. If you wanted you could add some crushed mint in when mixing with the whipped cream. But if you serve like Paula did by sprinkling the mint everywhere, you'll end up with a delicious bite. My husband and I thought it was very good and NOT TOO SWEET at all!
    What a wonderful Holiday recipe, so different! Everyone loved it, especially the teenagers.
    This pie is amazing. I really can't even describe the flavor. The peppermint is so subtle, but completely delicious. As for portion size, a small slice will definitely suffice! And the pie is very rich, so I bet it's absolutely wonderful with a cup of coffee! I highly recommend this pie!
    I normally love Paula's recipes and had high hopes for this one, but ended up disappointed. I made two of these for Christmas - one for each side of the family and no one liked it from the children all the way up to the great-grandparents. I love sweets, but this was just too sweet & even a little sickening. Oh well, on to the next recipe.
    It took me two tries to get this right, but it was totally worth it! This pie is fairly easy to make, and the finished product is yummy and a great holiday treat (or non-holiday treat it you're so inclined). Tip: Mash candy up very well unless you want to stand over a hot pan stirring for an hour or two! Also make sure candy/gelatin mixture is almost completely cool before adding remaining whipped cream unless you want a sloppy jello pie.
    I make this for every holiday event, my family and friends LOVE IT! probably my favorite pie!
    MY HUSBAND LOVES PEPPERMINTS AND WHEN I SAW THIS PIE RECIPE ON THE SHOW I HAD TO MAKE IT FOR HIM AND NO ONE GOT ANY ON CHRISTMAS DAY BECAUSE WHEN WE GOT UP IT WAS GONE HE LOVED IT NO NOT ONLY DO I MAKE IT FOR CHRISTMAS I MAKE IT FOR HIM EVERY OTHER WEEK
    This tastes soo good as you are making it (licking the bowl) but after it "gells" in the refrigerator it has a "moose-like" texture. I am not a fan of moose and neither is my wife so we ended up to toss this creation! Sorry Paula! It looked pretty but tasted nasty!
    This was an easy awesome pie. My father-in-law had to have a preview before Christmas, now I can't wait to make this one for the family. Thanks Paula for this easy and fun recipe.
    My husband and I both liked he flavor of the pie, but the texture wasn't creamy like we thought it would be. It has a very different texture, and neither of use liked it.
    It was VERY good!!!!!!
    good
    the pie is amazing and paula is a great cook
    This is the best pie I think I have ever eaten. It is absolutly perfect for the holiday dessert!!!
    I love this recipe. It is so good and real easy to make. I made it for a Christmas party last year and everyone just tried to kill each other for a piece of the pie. So this year I think I will try to make more then one.
    It sounds like this recipe is a hit...I haven't tried it yet, but was wondering if the soft peppermint candy I need to get is like peppermint taffy, Yorks peppermint patties or what! There is no Bob's peppermints in AZ and I would really like to make this! Any help would be appreciated.
    My husband loves this pie although he only eats a few bites at a time because it's so rich. I used regular peppermint candies because I coulnd't find a single store that sold soft ones. It seemed to turn out find but took longer to melt.
    made this, and the family really liked it, espically the older adults, its really good.
    I made this pie for the holiday this year and my family LOVED it. It has a pretty mild peppermint flavor. To pack a little more punch, next time I will add some peppermint flavoring. Overall it is an EXCELLENT recipe.
    I made this for New Years Eve. Everyone loved it. The flavor was wonderful. I found Bob's hard peppermints and they worked well. Will be making this pie again. My 2 year old even liked it.
    This was my first time I had every made a pie. I was so happy it turned out. My family loved it. I even passed the recipe on to my sister-inlaw. I will diffently be makeing this sometime in the New Year.
    Exvellent, excellent, excellent!! Easy, light, refreshing. My family loved it so much, I had to make two in two days! Great for parties, too. This one is a keeper.
    since i could not find any soft peppermint candies other than the brach's christmas tree ones, my pie turned out to be pinkish/purple, and very sweet. it melted very easily, and small servings will do because of it's sweetness! my roomates love it!
    It was pretty easy to make as i had watched paula make it for me and she is the bob ross of food. no mistakes, just happy accidents
    My husband loved this pie and so has everyone else i made it for. It is rich but completely worth the calories.
    This was a super good pie!!! Easy to prepare, light, very tasty and hard to stop eating!!! I sifted a bit of cocoa powder on top to decorate. Will serve to my friends on card night!
    Gives new meaning to the term "Mmmm good!"
    This pie was okay but would be better with the addition of some peppermint extract. The flavor was just too mild and would really benefit from kicking it up a bit. Hint: make sure to chop the peppermints well before melting in the cream.
