"Grasshopper pie is the decadent combination of mint and chocolate your taste buds have been craving. Even better, it only takes 15 minutes active prep and no baking is required! Tips: (1) You can substitute ½ teaspoon of mint extract in place of creme de menthe syrup. Just add 1-2 tablespoons of water to thin out your filling and taste test for enough mint flavor. (2) Make sure that your marshmallow is completely cool before moving on in the recipe! (3) In place of a food processor, use a large disposable bag and a rolling pin to crush the cookies."

Cooking MethodNo Bake


  • 30-32 mint chocolate sandwich cookies
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 32 large marshmallows
  • ½ cup half-and-half
  • 2 tbsp creme de menthe flavored syrup
  • 2 tbsp chocolate syrup
  • Green food coloring, optional
  • 1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream
  1. To make grasshopper pie, start adding the cookies into a food processor and pulse until you have a fine crumb.

  2. Add the crumbs to a medium-sized mixing bowl, reserving a few tablespoons for decoration.

  3. Melt the butter in a microwave-safe bowl.

  4. Add the butter to the cookie crumbs and stir together until the mixture is well combined.

  5. Pour the crumb mixture into your pie plate and gently pack the mixture all around the inside of the plate.

  6. Place the crust in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.

  7. To make your filling, use a large bowl to prepare an ice bath with ice and water. Set aside.

  8. Place another large mixing bowl in the freezer with the beaters of your hand mixer.

  9. In a medium saucepan, add the marshmallows and half-and-half and place over low heat.

  10. Stir constantly until the marshmallows are melted and immediately transfer the saucepan into the prepared ice bath.

  11. Continue stirring occasionally until the marshmallow mixture is completely cool.

  12. Stir in the chocolate syrup and creme de menthe flavoring. You can also add your food coloring now if you are using it.

  13. Remove the mixing bowl from the freezer and add in the heavy whipping cream.

  14. Beat the cream until stiff peaks form and fold it into the marshmallow mixture.

  15. Pour the completed filling into the prepared crust.

  16. Sprinkle the top with your extra cookie crumbs.

  17. Place the pie in the freezer for at least 2 hours and let thaw for 10 minutes before serving.
