"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Directions:
Directions:
Spread 1 pint (I used most of a half gallon) peppermint ice cream in a 9 inch baked pastry shell that has been cooled. I use the Pillsbury ready made pie crusts in the refrigerated section. Cover with half the cooled fudge sauce; freeze. Repeat layers. Freeze overnight or till firm.

Prepare Meringue. Fold 3 tablespoons crushed peppermint stick candy into the meringue (I didnít have any). Remove pie from freezer. Spread meringue over chocolate layer; seal to edge. Sprinkle top with 1 tablespoon crushed peppermint candy. Place pie on cutting board. (Donít ask me why?) Bake at 475 for 5 to 6 minutes, or till golden. Serve at once.
