This grasshopper pie is ultra-creamy and filled with chocolate and mint! This pie is light, airy but totally dreamy. This easy pie is magical and wonderful to serve for family and friends!There are definitely variations of this pie that feature ice cream as the filling. You can certainly use mint chip or vanilla ice cream and fold in Creme de Menthe to make a frozen version.
Grasshopper pie is a cream pie that is loosely based on the popular Grasshopper cocktail that is made with Creme de Menthe and Creme de Cacao. The drink’s name comes from the vibrant green hue that the mint liqueur lends to the cocktail. This grasshopper pie is very loosely based on my cherry delight recipe and this cherry cream pie recipe. However, the recipe I am sharing with you today is not made with ice cream. This pie features a cream cheese base that is combined with marshmallow fluff, sugar, and Cool Whip. You will be making a chocolate crumb crust. For the crumbs, you can use chocolate wafer cookies, chocolate graham crackers or my favorite, Oreo chocolate sandwich cookies. I chose to use the mint-flavored Oreo’s just to really drive home the mint flavoring.
For the Crust
- 1 ½ cups mint Oreo cookie crumbs
- 5 tablespoons melted butter
For the filling
- 1 8 oz block cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 7 oz marshmallow fluff
- 3 tablespoons Creme de Menthe
- 2 tablespoons Creme de Cacoa
- 8 oz Cool Whip, thawed
- Chopped Andes Mints for garnish
