St. Patrick’s Day isn’t far off and I’ve got two things flooding my brain these days.
Together these two things make some tasty desserts that are festive enough to celebrate with on one of the greenest holidays of the year. I may not be Irish (but I am super pale, does that count?) I don’t pass up the chance to make goodies for the kids.
This is so easy to make there’s really no “recipe” nessecary. Just pick up a premade OREO pie crust or I suppose you could crush some fresh OREOS and mix them with a little melted butter and press your own crust into a pie plate.
Next, mix 2 small boxes of instant vanilla pudding mix with 2-1/4 cups of milk. Whisk in a teaspoon or two of peppermint extract and a splash of green food coloring. You get this vibrant minty green pie filling that goes right into the crust.
Use your favorite whipped cream to pipe some blobs around the border of the pie or cover it completely if you love your whipped cream. Me, I’m a Cool Whip kinda girl.
Finally, pick up a package of Andes Creme de Menthe baking chips or just break up some of the Andes Mint Candies and sprinkle generously all over the pie.
Refrigerate your pretty little grasshopper pie for an hour and serve it up with a big fork. Yum!
