14 Days of Pi(e): Grasshopper Pie

By March 7, 2014September 16th, 2023No Comments

I picked this pie when I was craving a Shamrock Shake. I think you could get away with calling it a shamrock pie during the month of March and nobody would be disappointed.

Grasshopper Pie


1 Chocolate wafer crust
6 1/2 cups tiny marshmallows
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup green cremè de menthe
2 tablespoons white crème de cacao
2 cups whipping cream
Unsweetened whipped cream
Chocolate curls


In large saucepan, combine marshmallows and milk. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, till marshmallows are melted. Remove from heat. Cool mixture, stirring every 5 minutes. Combine crème de menthe and crème de cacao; stir into marshmallow mixture. Whip 2 cups whipping cream till soft peaks form. Fold marshmallow mixture into the whipped cream; turn into chilled wafer crust. Freeze several hours or overnight till firm. Before serving, garnish pie with additional unsweetened whipped cream and chocolate curls.
