1 Package of 6 plain Hershey Candy Bars
1 Tub of Cool Whip (8 ounces)
1 Pie Crust (chocolate or graham)
Unwrap all chocolate bars and break them accordingly. Place in a bowl and microwave them until all are melted. Pour all of the cool whip in the bowl and mix together until all is blended. Pour mixture in a pie shell and refrigerate for several hours or until hard. As a bonus, you can always get an additional bar and crumble it on top and perhaps a dollop of cool whip and a mint leaf.
