Grasshopper Pie ~ Southern Grasshopper Pie Recipe ~ Piesgiving ~ Noreen’s Kitchen
I am back with another installment in our Piesgiving celebration and on a Torani Friday no less! Here we have one that was a huge request over the past year, the Southern Grasshopper Pie! A delicious combination of mint and chocolate and it is super easy to make and even easier to eat. I warn you though this pie is rich and addictive!

You won’t believe how simple this pie is to make. I have made a chocolate cookie crumb crust, but you can use a store bought version. If you want to make your own, you can simply mix 2 cups of chocolate cookies or chocolate graham crackers with 4 tablespoons of melted butter and mix well until it reaches the consistency of wet sand. Then press into a 9 inch pie plate. Put this in the fridge to set while you make the filling.

The filling is super easy as well! I used one 16 ounce tub of marshmallow fluff, added Creme De Menthe Torani syrup to flavor and two cups of whipped cream. Then poured everything into that pie shell and placed it back in the fridge for at least four hours, but overnight is better.

I decorated my pie by placing eight swirls of whipped cream around the pie and one in the center. I also put an unwrapped Ande’s mint into each whipped cream swirl then I grated an Ande’s mint over the whole pie using my micro plane. Yes, it was that easy!

I will tell you that this pie filling is a bit soft. If you want to have an easy time of slicing, place the pie in the freezer for about 15 minutes before slicing that way you can slice with ease and confidence. If you are a home canner and keep instant clear jel, only the instant kind will work, on hand you can toss a couple tablespoons of that into the filling when you mix it. This will stabilize the filling and make it hold up when sliced. I love to have ingredients like that on hand for things like this. I also stabilize my whipped cream with that as well!

So simple and so delicious! If you don’t have Torani syrup, you can also sub out for 1/4 cup of creme de menthe liqueur or add 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract and a few drops of green food color to your desired hue. I actually added a bit more of the Wilton Color perfect food color to my pie to get it just right!

I think this pie is perfect for the holidays or anytime! Great option for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter or just Tuesday!

I hope you give this southern tradition grasshopper pie a try and I hope you love it!

Happy Eating!
