As Easy As Grasshopper Pie

July 24, 2011

First off, let me apologize for not posting in over a month, but sometimes life gets in the way of blogging. 🙂 However, that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped cooking so I have a very nice archive to add the blog at this point.

Now lets get to this scrumptous looking piece of pie above. Although this isn’t true grasshopper pie, which commonly uses cream and creme de menthe liqueur, it is equally delicious and takes half the time.  This recipe is so easy you could make it in your sleep – or if you are like me, after a couple margaritas!

I made this for my birthday party this year where I had some friends over for a pool party with lots of great food, of course. All you have to do is buy the pre-made oreo crusts and then fill with ice cream, chocolate syrup and top with cool whip. See the photos of the process below.

This pie was a hit at the party and one carton of ice cream makes 2 pies. You can use any type of ice cream you prefer like chocolate, chocolate chip cookie dough, chocolate peanut butter etc.


  • 2 Oreo Pie Crusts
  • 1 1.75 Quart Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
  • Chocolate Fudge Topping  (the  hardening kind or glaze)
Let the ice cream soften so that it can be spread into the pie shell easily, but do not let it get frothy. Fill each pie shell to the top with the ice cream. (1 1.75 quart split between 2 pie shells). Next, drizzle the fudge on the top of the ice cream so that it covers the top. Add the cool whip as the topping then garnish by drizzling more chocolate fudge on top. Place in the freezer and let the pie harden. Take out immediately before serving.
