These No Bake Mini Grasshopper Pies would be perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, or even Earth Day!  The green colour and the mint makes them super fun for these two occasions! Minty.  Creamy.  Chocolatey.

Recipe Tips:

  • Oreo Cookies: I used about 1/2 package of Oreo cookies. Remove all the icing centres of the cookies. Then using a food processor, pulse the cookies until they are coarsely ground. You can keep the icing in them if you want, the pies will just be much sweeter (maybe too sweet?).
  • Creme de Menthe: If you don’t want to use Creme de Menthe you can substitute it with 1 tsp of mint extract and a couple drops of green food colouring. Or use mint cookies instead of Oreos.
  • Garnish: I used shaved chocolate to garnish these mini pies. But you can also use rainbow sprinkles.
  • Jars: I used 5 mini mason jars (250 mL size)
  • Let the pies chill. These pies should chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving. Cover them with the jar lids and refrigerate.

No Bake Mini Grasshopper Pies

These No Bake Mini Grasshopper Pies are a delicious and easy to make dessert!  They’re both minty and chocolatey!

  • Author: Jo-Anna Rooney
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Cooling Time: 2 hours
  • Total Time: 2 hours 30 minutes
  • Yield: 5 servings 1x
  • Category: Dessert
  • Method: No Bake

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped Oreo cookies (remove the icing centres first) See instructions.
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup Creme de Menthe (see notes)
  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
  • chocolate shavings
  • 5 mini mason jars (250 mL)

Instructions

  1. First, remove all the icing centres of your Oreo cookies (about 1/2 a package), and using a food processor, coarsely grind the chocolate cookie parts up. Or if you are feeling really adventurous, keep the icing in! It will just make your dessert more sweet…maybe too sweet? (is that even possible?!)
  2. In a saucepan, melt the marshmallows with the milk over low heat. Then chill the mixture, stirring it occasionally, until mixture begins to set.
  3. Once the marshmallow mix has cooled and set, stir in the Creme de Menthe. Set aside.
  4. Using a mixer, whip the whipping cream until soft peaks form. Then fold the whipped cream into the mint mixture. Set aside.

Now it’s time to put the pies together!

  1. For the crust, evenly spread the cookie mixture into the bottoms of your mason jars, then pack it down.
  2. Add the mint mixture on top of the cookie mixture, evenly spreading it out between the 5 jars.
  3. If you like, top the mini pies with a little dollop of whip cream, and some chocolate shavings. I just grated some semi-sweet chocolate, and sprinkled it on.
  4. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.

  7. I don’t think that’s a rule. And if it is…rules were made to be broken! 😉 You know what I love about individual servings of cakes? No kids fussing that someone else got a bigger piece! Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe!

  8. Hi Jo-Anna,
    These look and sound amazing! I was wondering if I could use ready made marshmallow creme and skipping a step of melting the marshmallows with the milk?

    Made these yesterday for a party and they were a huge hit. Doubled the recipe and served in little plastic mini dessert cups I found on Amazon. Very fun and easy!

  10. we are planning on trying these for our dessert competition next month. They do look so cute. Can you tell me what size the mini mason jars are? I’m finding different sizes online.

    Jo-Anna, not only do these present beautifully, but taste wonderful! I hand a couple gluten free guest so used a gluten free brownie as the crust and Andes Creme de Menthe chips for the topping. They were the hit of the party!
