Grasshopper Pie

Pretty, Individual Grasshopper Pies For St. Patrick's Day

No, there are no insects involved in grasshopper pie. We're not sure why this mint-chocolate pie obtained the name it did, but we do know that these mint-green miniature pies are a festive way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. The mason jars make it easy to transport the pie; simply screw on the tops and garnish the pies with whipped cream when you're ready to serve.

Crush Oreo cookies to create the chocolate pie crust, and top each jar with a hefty scoop of minty, marshmallowy filling. Garnish the mason jars with a tall peak of whipped cream, a sprinkle of mini chocolate chips, and a mint leaf.
