My Oh My, Super Easy No Bake Grasshopper Pie!

Hey:

I know you get really tired of hearing “What’s for Dinner?”

In our home, it’s “What will we have for dinner tonight?” And that ends up being:
1. A quick trip to the grocer (usually by my retired husband)
2. Ordering Take-Out or,
3. Foraging for leftovers

After working all day who has time to make dinner, much less dessert? I know I don’t.

This scrumptiously super EASY no bake grasshopper pie is so light and fluffy – full of delicious Cool Whip, cream cheese, Oreos and Crème de Menthe! With a smooth minty chocolate-y taste, folks will ask for seconds. Think mint chocolate chip ice cream!

This Super Easy No Bake Grasshopper Pie looks gorgeous too. First launched in the 60’s, this recipe could now be considered vintage. This was one of those classic recipes that moms everywhere took to bridge club, neighborhood potlucks, and church suppers.


Do you remember marshmallow and jellied salads? Yep I know you do! Mom always had a jellied salad, and something with marshmallows in it for all of her dinners. Well this No Bake Grasshopper Pie recipe is just like that.

There are lots and lots of grasshopper pie recipes out there, with different permutations and combinations!

There are recipes for:

  • grasshopper pie using creme de menthe & marshmallow
  • grasshopper pie with cool whip & cream cheese (our recipe in this post!)
  • grasshopper pie with Andes Mints – yummy!!

and

  • non alcoholic grasshopper pie (our recipe uses Creme de Menthe and Creme de Cacao)

My grasshopper pie recipe uses cream cheese blended with sweetened condensed milk and Cool Whip – I love the rich texture of it. And the combination of both creme de menthe and creme de cacao give it a unique taste don’t you think? I add just a few drops of green food coloring to get that gorgeous mint green color.

The recipe is so easy. Allow about an hour for total prep time – including the 20 minutes the filling has to chill.

This past weekend we were invited to have lunch with our friends, Tony and Shelly.  Shelly offered to groom the dogs, so I wanted to be sure to take something sweet.  I know for a fact that Tony loves pie, and I’ve been wanting to make this No Bake Grasshopper Pie, so this was the perfect opportunity.

I knew I could whip it up Sunday morning and it would be ready to take long before we had to leave!  That’s how quickly you can make it.

 

Crust:

  • 2 cups finely crushed cream filled chocolate sandwich cookies (24-26)
  • ¼ cup of unsalted butter – melted

Filling:

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 tbsp. lemon juice from concentrate
  • ¼ cup creme de menthe
  • ¼ cup creme de cacao
  • 2 cups Cool Whip –thawed

 

  • Crush the cookies using your food processor, and add the melted butter
  • Press firmly into your greased 9” pie plate and chill while you are making the filling.
  • (TIP: make sure your pie plate has a wide rim on it or use a deep dish pie plate.  I used an aluminum foil pie plate since I’m still at the trailer)
  • In a large mixing bowl, whip the cream cheese until fluffy (tip: make sure the cream cheese is really soft)
  • Gradually add in the sweetened condensed milk until smooth
  • Stir in the lemon juice and the liqueurs – (tip: I used a whisk to really mix it well – the cream cheese tends to be a bit lumpy)
  • Fold in the Cool Whip.
  • Chill the filling for 20 minutes before you build your pie.

Building the pie:

  • Pour the filling into the cookie pie crust and smooth the top with some swirls with your knife.
  • Put in the fridge for 4 hours until it is set.

Heap the chilled filling into the center of the crust.

Garnish:

Sprinkle crushed cookies over the top and serve.
