    Default Grasshopper pie

    I had a craving for the mint chocolate chip ice cream you can buy at
    the store, but I wanted it in pie form. So I made a Grasshopper pie,
    which I suppose is a fancy word for Chocolate mint pie. Whatever you
    want to call it this pie is sure to please and delight the senses.

    Ingredients:

    * 1 package of Keebler Grasshopper cookies
    * 1 pkg instant vanilla pudding
    * 1 1/2 C. Cold milk
    * 1 C. Whipped cream (homemade or store bought cool whip)
    * 2 Hershey chocolate bars
    * 2 tsp. Chocolate mint flavoring
    * Green food coloring

    Directions:Mint Chocolate pie

    Grease a pie plate very well and set aside. In a Ziploc bag place
    all of the Keebler Grasshopper cookies and crush them to bits and
    pieces. Mix the cookies with one stick of melted butter and press into
    greased pie plate. Place in freezer for about 30 minutes to set. While
    the crust is setting take two Hershey Chocolate bars and shave them
    with the slicer side of a multi sided grater. After the crust has set
    in a mixing bowl pour milk, instant vanilla pudding mix, and 2 tsp.
    chocolate mint flavoring. Beat with a wire whisk until blended about
    two minutes. Fold in cool whip and half of the chocolate shavings and
    a couple drops of green food coloring. Spread the rest of the shaved
    chocolate on top of the pie. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until set.

    This Grasshopper (chocolate mint,) pie is wonderful and tastes just
    like the ice cream. It truly was exactly what I was going for, and I
    was very pleased with the results. You wonít see a single piece of the
    pie pictured because I made a mistake, as we all sometimes often do. I
    forgot to grease the pie plate, and well my crust stuck. Had I not
    done this I have no doubt that my pie would have turned out perfect.

    If you are going to make the whip cream yourself make it ahead of time
    so it is ready to fold in right after you get done beating the
    pudding/ pie filling mix together. Other then that helpful suggestion
    just remember to grease, grease, and grease

    Here is my recipe for Grasshopper Mold, which could be placed in a
    prepared chocolate crust if so desired.
    Mine uses old fashioned ingredients (no coolwhip, instant pudding or
    food coloring) and is probably just as simple to make as yours.

    That sounds wonderful, I like the idea of the cookie crumbs being
    sprinkled on top as well. I am going to have to try this one out as
    well. Thanks
