    I'm going to make a 6'8 foot cake and have Sir Harry and Chuck Hayes wrestle in the frosting.

    Peppermint Candy Cane Pie

    9-inch chocolate cookie crust
    1 envelope unflavored gelatin
    1 1/2 c. cold milk
    6 to 8 peppermint candy canes
    1/2 c. sugar
    2 eggs, separated
    1/4 t. salt
    1/8 t. red food coloring
    1/2 c. heavy cream
    1 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
    2 T. butter or margarine
    1 1/2 T. milk
    1 c. powdered sugar, sifted
    pinch of salt
    1/4 t. vanilla

    Soften gelatin in 1/2 cup cold milk. Crush candy canes;
    measure 1/2 cup. In saucepan combine 1 cup milk, 1/4 cup
    of sugar, slightly beaten egg yolks and salt. Mix well.
    Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until slightly
    thick. Add softened gelatin and stir to dissolve. Blend
    in food coloring. Chill until mixture begins to thicken.

    Beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar
    and beat until stiff. Beat cream until stiff. Fold gently
    into custard, then fold in egg whites. Chill until filling
    holds its shape when stirred. Stir in peppermint, then
    spoon into pie shell and chill until firm, about 4 hours.

    Melt chocolate and butter together. Blend in milk, powdered
    sugar, pinch of salt and vanilla; blend until smooth. Thin
    with some cream if necessary. Serve over pie
    I'm making this for the potluck this coming Thursday.

    You should check it out. I loved Barkers Square.

    Get something by them and let me know what you think.
    Wow, IowaSacKing93, I kept thinking you lived in Des Moines 2 years ago too. When will I learn.

    This isn't going well. The pie is runny.

    I've tried to thicken it up, but haven't been able to.

    I don't think it will thicken after refrigerating, like it's supposed to.

    I tried adding corn starch, it helped a little, but don't think it can help it that much.

    I also tried powdered sugar, to hide how runny it was. You probably can't see it as much now, but the red stuff underneath is very runny.

    I'm embarrassed of what people's reactions will be when they try eating this at the potluck.

    The leaky pie spilled out of the container and into my reusable bag, and on my clothes, as I was going to the subway.

    I threw out the remnants of the pie when I got to the kitchen at work.

    I'll try again in a few weeks. And with a real pie baking dish, instead of a one-use one.
