Mint Dirt Pie

Every year I make a dirt pie for Thanksgiving. This year my husband requested mint and I came up with this variation of my original recipe.
Mint Dirt Pie (this is the ingredients for 2 pies)

2 Oreo Pie Crusts
2 (4 oz) boxes of Chocolate Instant Pudding
2 cups of milk
2 tubs of (softened) Cool Whip
1 package of Oreo or similar sandwich cookies
1 package of Thin Mint Girl Scout or Grasshopper cookies
1 bag of Andes Mint Bits
Optional: Box of Junior Mints

Mix the pudding & milk with a whisk, fold in the cool whip. Crush the sandwich & mint cookies (I use my food processor) to make dirt. Mix the cookie dirt & mint bits into the pudding mixture and pour into the pie crusts. Refrigerate for a few hours. I put a few Junior Mints on top of each slice as it was served. My dirt pie is always the first to disappear!
