Crème de Menthe Dessert

This refreshing vintage dessert also known as Grasshopper Pie, is a great all year round recipe that also can easily be made gluten-free. A simple no bake dessert made with a chocolate cookie crumb crust, and light minty frozen marshmallow Crème de Menthe filling. This recipe was modified to be a non alcoholic version but you can replace the peppermint extract with a shot of Crème de Menthe liquor.


20 Large Marshmallows (cut into small pieces)

½ Cup Milk

12 Oreos

½ Pint Heavy Cream

½ teaspoon Peppermint Extract

Green Food Coloring


Melt marshmallows in the microwave with ½ cup milk. (Do not overcook as the marshmallows will become stringy).

Remove from heat and cool for 1 hour

Crush Oreos in a food processor

Line a tray with half of the crushed Oreos

To the marshmallow mixture add peppermint extract and food coloring

Whip the heavy cream until near butter stage

Fold marshmallow mixture into into the whipped cream

Pour into pan cover with the rest of the Oreos and freeze for 8-10 hours before serving.
