Directions

  1. In a large saucepan combine evaporated milk and marshmallows. Stir over low heat until marshmallows are completely melted. Chill until mixture holds its shape when dropped from a spoon.
  2. Slowly pour creme de menthe and creme de cacao into marshmallow mixture while stirring constantly. Continue to stir until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  3. Pour whipping cream into a large chilled mixing bowl. Add a few drops of green food coloring if desired. Whip cream until stiff. Gently fold whipped cream into marshmallow mixture.
  4. Spread mixture into pie crust. Chill overnight before serving. Garnish each slice with shaved chocolate and crushed peppermint if desired. Be sure to refrigerate any leftovers.

In my opinion there is too much liquer in the pie filling and it is overwhelming. I probably wouldn't make this again.

Very nice. I froze mine instead of chilling it, and I added slightly less liqueur, just a personal preference. This is a foolproof recipe and a keeper.

This was a good recipe, but I think the Creme de Menthe was too strong. I might use less, maybe half, next time. I used crushed Andes mints on the top and crushed Oreos and that was pretty good. The only thing I might change is the strength of the mint.

When I was a kid, my mother used to make this pie for me every year for my birthday. I thought it was the best pie in the world. When I lost her, I lost the reciepe with her. For years I have wondered if I'll ever get the chance to have that same version again. This receipe is it!!! I can't begin to tell you how thrilled I was. My only suggestion is that you make the crust yourself instead of purchasing a pre-made one. (The reciepe for the home made crust can be found on the Grasshopper I receipe page.) I can't thank you enough Celia and allrecipes.com!!!

This was the first grasshopper pie that I have had and neither I or the family were that impressed. I reduced the alchohol content, but it was still too strong. Plus, it didn't have much flavor (besides alchohol) or zip. I won't make it again.
