Mint Chocolate Pie
This pie is smooth and creamy with a minty chill. But the crust, made with Cocoa Krispies® cereal, is the very best part.
- 2 tablespoons margarine
- 1/4 cup light corn syrup
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 cups Kellogg's® Cocoa Krispies® cereal
- 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
- 1/4 cup cold water
