Friday Pie-Day: Grasshopper Pie

My sister is a lover of mint, especially when it’s paired with chocolate. This pie was for her, and it was ridiculously simple. Apparently it's called grasshopper pie because it so quickly "hops" off the plate and into awaiting tummies!

We used all name-brand ingredients, a rarity for us but definitely worth it.

First crush the Oreos and chop up the Junior Mints.

Next, plop some mint cookies n cream ice cream into the pre-made Oreo crust. Yep, that's the whole pie filling - ice cream! Told you it was easy.

Carefully place the crushed Oreos and chopped-up Junior Mints on top of the ice cream.

And then drizzle some chocolate magic shell topping over everything.

Then just stick it in the freezer overnight (or it might even be ready after a few hours – I am a big fan of making stuff a day or more in advance, and I think this would keep well for a few days or more even!)

Yeah, it tasted amazing. The chocolatey crunches add texture to the smooth, creamy minty freshness. And it’s one of the easiest pies I’ve ever made!
