Mint Chocolate Chip Pie

This is a favorite of my husband's and when we were invited to a St. Paddy's Day dinner I thought this would be the perfect green dessert to bring. It is so easy and requires NO BAKING!

2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
2 cups milk
1-1/2 teaspoons peppermint extract
5 to 6 drops green food coloring
2 boxes instant vanilla pudding mix
1 cup minisemisweet chocolate chips
1 large or two small graham cracker crust (or Oreo if you can find it!)

In small bowl, mix the heavy cream and sugar together until peaks form. This takes about five minutes with a hand mixer.  In another bowl, combine the milk, extract and food coloring. Add the pudding mixes to the milk and mix together for two minutes.  Fold the heavy cream mixture into the pudding mixture until combined. Add the chocolate chips.  Scoop into the crusts and refrigerate for 2 hours to set the pies.
