This is the classic grasshopper pie of all time. My kids still clamor for this one at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

This Recipe is Great! Some variations that I made: I used oreo cookies chopped in a food processor for the crust. I also put them into muffin tins instead of making it a pie. I also topped each individual "pie" with chopped ande's mints. Hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as I did (and my coworkers). Read More

Very very good. I used a pre-made chocolate crust to save on time. Next time I would add a wee bit less of the creme de menthe. I used regular (brown) creme de coco b/c I didn't have white and it was fine -- did not turn the pie brown just intensified the green. I also bought chocolate covered/candy-shelled mints chopped them up and sprinkled them on the top. Yum! Everyone loved it. Read More

I made this a few days ago for my boyfriend because this one restaurant in town makes it and he loves it. Everything turned out alright except I had a hard time getting the whipping cream to whip (sans electric mixer) so I went and bought some whipped cream and that worked fine. If you do that I would probably suggest adding more than the 1 cup they have for the recipe. The 1/4 cup cream de menthe wasn't overly powering. On some pieces I could taste it more than others but I'd stick with the 1/4 cup. Other than that it turned out well! I also used a pre-made Oreo pie crust so good! Read More

Made the recipe exactly as originally written. The only thing I added: before freezing I pushed whole Oreos into the top and made a pretty design. I just wanted to use the extra cookies left over from the crust...and I think it did a nice job of adding a bit more chocolate flavor. Read More

This was absolutely delicious and so easy to make. You can even buy a chocolate graham cracker crust to make it even easier! Read More

Excellent pie like my aunt used to make for Thanksgiving every year. If the liquor taste is a bit strong you can add the creme de menthe to the marshmallow/milk mixture as it heats to cook off a bit of the alcohol. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

I used Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur in place of the clear creme de coca and it was yummy. I've only made this once so I can not conset to the difference but I'm sticking to the white chocolate liqueur where 4 Tbs. might even be better! Read More
