This is a recipe Gramma Bea used to use for any kind of celebration. I remember serving this for confirmations and graduations. We also could get a bit carried away with presentation on this one.

How To Make grasshopper pie

  • 1
    Melt the marshmellows with the milk. Cool thoroughly. Then add the whipped cream and liquors. Add the liquors very slowly. Pour into a chocolate cookie crust and refigerate for 2 hours. This tastes just as good on the 3rd day as the first.

    Chocolate crumb pie crust. Crush chocolate wafer cookies or hydrox (16 cookies). Mix with 5 T. melted butter and press into a 9" pie pan and chill.

    To present this as flower pots...take styrofoam cups. Put a couple of spoonfuls of the cookie crumb crust in the bottom of each of 12 cups. Then fill with the liquor mixture. (you will need to double liquor mixture) Then sprinkle a little bit of the cookie crumbs on top to look like soil. Stick a cut off straw down the cente of each cup and add a flower to each pot.
