A FUN PIE FOR ST. PATRICK’S DAY!

I have an undying serious love for no bake recipes – they’re delicious and easy. I mean, make a crust, stir some ingredients together, and then let it set. We really enjoy popping this pie into the freezer and just slicing and eating as we go. It’s so refreshing and tastes just like an ice cream pie! This no bake grasshopper pie is an absolute must-try. It tastes like mint chocolate chip ice cream but in pie form!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Can I use a store-bought pie crust?

Yes of course! Just purchase a chocolate or Oreo cookie pie crust.

Why is it called grasshopper pie?

Grasshopper pie is named after the famous green Grasshopper Pie drink that is made with creme de menthe!

What can I use besides mini chocolate chips?

You do not have to top this pie with anything. However, a good substititue would be some chopped Andes creme de menthe chocolates. Some stores now carry Andes mint baking chips.

Is it better to food coloring liquid or food coloring paste?

After making this several times, I found I preferred the paste (Wilton’s Kelly Green) over the liquid or gel. However, use what you have on hand!

Can I use peppermint extract instead of mint extract?

No. You will not get the correct flavor. Mint extract is a combination of both peppermint and spearmint extracts giving it that unique creme de menthe flavor.

Can grasshopper pie be frozen?

Absolutely! We actually enjoy eating it after it has been frozen. Just make sure you cover the pie well to protect against freezer burn. It will last for up to 3 months.
