Shell:

Combine baking mix, cocoa, sugar and butter in a small bowl. Add water and stir vigorously until dough forms a ball and cleans the bowl. Dough will be puffy and soft. Pat dough with lightly floured hands into 9 inch pie pan, bringing the up the sides to reach the edge of the pan. Bake at 450 for 8-10 minutes and cool.


Filling:

Sprinkle the gelatin on water in a small saucepan to soften. Stir in over very low heat until gelatin is dissolved. In a chilled bowl, beat cream until stiff. Blend pudding and liqueurs into whipped cream. Fold in gelatin and, if you like, green food coloring. Pour mixture into pie shell. Chill at least 4 hours or until set. Just before serving, garnish with chocolate curls.
