When she saw I was making it, she asked if I was making it for her birthday (not for a month still.) She always asks for this for her birthday and I sometimes will make it for her then but pie isn’t always the best choice for a now 12 year olds birthday with friends.
I made this pie for you. Yes I did. Because I wanted to. And because I wanted to make something green that wasn’t a vegetable. For St. Patty’s Day.
And I even talked my friends into making some things for you for St. Patty’s Day.
Because I care.

Groovy Grasshopper Pie
from Forrest Gump: My Favorite Chocolate Recipes this is one of my favorite cookbooks
- 1 1/4 cup Chocolate wafer crumbs (I used chocolate graham crackers)
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- 1 (6 ounce) package Andes mint wafers
- 4 cups miniature marshmallows
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/3 cup creme de menthe
- 1 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
- Combine chocolate wafer crumbs and melted butter, stirring till all combined. Gently press into a greased pie dish to create a loose crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 6-8 minutes.
- While crust is baking, cut mints up so you have some large pieces for garnishing and the rest smaller. This will happen anyway as you're chopping. Set aside.
- Combine Marshmallows, sugar and remaining butter in a double boiler (you can do this in a regular saucepan if you don't have a double boiler.) Cook until marshmallows are completely melted and well combined.
- Remove from heat and stir in Creme De Menthe.Let cool to room temperature.
- Fold in whipped whipped cream And your smaller bits of chopped mints. Pour into pie crust. Garnish with remaining chopped mints and freeze until firm.
