A dessert twist on the classic mint after dinner drink, this Frozen Grasshopper Pie with an Oreo Crust is one of our traditional 4th of July desserts. My family would revolt if I skipped this winner!

Dessert for Mint Lovers

My children all adore the combination of mint and chocolate. Bill? Well, not so much.  He won’t even taste anything with mint in it. Except for toothpaste. This is the sort of logic I have to deal with on a day to day basis.

Like no cherries except for Cherry Koolaid. I think I married a 5-year-old in an adult’s body. But I digress. There is always a stash of Thin Mints in our basement freezer for the kids for those mint cravings…but once a year, I whip up this grasshopper pie.Grasshopper Pie  on a serving platter

Frozen Grasshopper Pie

I started making this frozen delight for our Fourth of July gathering about five years ago using my mom’s recipe. An Oreo crust is topped with a mixture of marshmallow creme, creme de menthe and whipped cream and then frozen. Easy, peasy. One neighbor, in particular, always gets an extra slice to take home.

His wife, Sharon, is “helping” him diet by limiting her baking, and I got an email about a week before the holiday with his annual request for this grasshopper pie. And he denies even liking desserts! Anyone who is that fond of one of my desserts gets a huge slice PLUS a doggy bag for a midnight snack.

  1. Liz…..your pie looks great. This use to be one of my favourites before but haven’t made it in a while. the reason is that when my daughter was lil’ she thought that that pie was really made form grasshoppers and would cry when she saw it…..so I kind of stopped making it. Thanks for the ‘blast from the past’.

  2. Aw, sweet story! You’re going to have to try it again!

  3. Yes, this is definitely something I’m going to make. I know everyone will love it. Of course, I’ll only be able to have a small bite if I want to keep fitting into my bathing suit! It’s the heavy cream… hmmm, I wonder if I could substitute something else instead? 😉

  4. Well, you know how I feel re marshmallow (wrinkling my nose here), but it IS beautifully plated and styled. 🙂

    Nabisco’s chocolate wafers are so hard to find, so the idea to use Oreos is genius.

    Your guests are so lucky to have you cooking for them.

  5. Maybe this is the pie I need to take to our 4th!

  6. Looks refreshing and delicious!

  7. Love, Love, LOVE grasshopper pie. I get it at Christmas at my in=laws house. I should really learn to make it so I can have it more than once a year!

  8. Don’t you just love cooking from your mom’s recipe cards! Grasshopper pie has always been one of my favorites. I haven’t made it for my family yet. I hope they love it too when I do. Beautiful photo – and also the professional one of you I just saw!!!

  9. The name is a fun one. I have never eaten a Grasshopper pie. Went through the recipe, so it doesn’t have any mint leaves but for the mint cream right? Looks really tasty.

  10. My gosh, that couldn’t be more simple and I love the green colour. Mint and chocolate are winners together for me too. Lucky neighbour!

  11. Hmm…this looks so very tempting. Got to try this one of this day. Thanks for sharing it.
    Blessings, Kristy

  12. This looks SO good – LOVE the color!

  13. My mother’s recipe calls for 1/4 c creme de cacao in addition to the mint. It really is a great addition!!

  14. Lovely cake. Thanks for the recipe. Easy to do. Good job 🙂

  15. Can you make this ahead and freeze?

  16. How refreshing to make here all year long! love that oreo on top!
