This pie tastes like the traditional grasshopper pie only it does not contain alcohol. It's great in the summer because of its light texture. If desired, top with dark chocolate shavings before serving.

This recipe was 5 star with the modifications I used as follows: I used chocolate cookie crusts instead of graham. I crumbled up 1/2 box of choc/mint grasshopper cookies (Girl Scout thin mints would work great also!). i spread hot fudge sauce on the empty pie shell and added some cookie crumbs there then added the minty cream and finally completely covered the top of the pie with the crumb topping. It was delicious!! Read More

This was okay I wasn't particularly impressed. BUT... mint extract is 89% alcohol while creme de menthe is 15% alcohol so I can't understand why they say this recope does not contain alcohol. ALL extracts (including vanilla) contain alcohol! Read More

Very good! I also made my own mint Oreo cookie crust. And I took the advice of some others and instead of chocolate extract used two Hershey bars chopped in the food processor. I would recommend freezing them before chopping them however so that you are pouring in flakes and not trying to mix in a paste. It was WONDERFUL! Read More

This was so good... I recommend freezing it for an "almost ice cream" pie. I got creme de menthe flavoring (instead of regular mint) and used equal parts of that and the chocolate flavoring. It was superb and I'll make it again and again! Read More

I am a HUGE fan of regular grasshopper pie but didn't want to risk anything when I was pregnant so I made this version instead. I agree with another that it should only be made with OREO crust (not chocolate graham cracker that wouldn't taste good) but the filling is great and perfect for our needs.:) This year I can have the regular version again but I keep the recipe on hand as I've already made it twice.

I made this for a church bake sale. The chocolate extract was a bit hard to find but I was finally able to locate it at a cake decorating store. It turned out nicely but I added grasshopper cookies around the edges of the pie crust along with crushed cookies on top of the pie with the suggested chocolate shavings. It looked nice and I hear it tasted pretty good. Would make again. Read More
