Scrumptious Grasshopper Mint Pie Recipe

This grasshopper mint pie is a great dessert pie to make during the hot summer months when you want a "cold dessert" pie to cool you down. This pie has the perfect blend of mint, the sweetness of cream cheese and of course chocolate. This pie will serve 6 adults.

Grasshopper Mint Pie Recipe

8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup granulated sugar
8 oz. tub frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 cup finely chopped - Keebler Fudge Shoppe Grasshopper Cookies
2-3 drops of green food coloring
1 chocolate crumb pie crust
* additional halved cookies to use for garnishing

Mix the softened cream cheese and granulated sugar with an electric mixer until well blended and smooth. Fold in the thawed whipped topping, chopped cookies and green food coloring. Mix it all together and then spoon the mixture into the chocolate crumb pie crust.

Place the pie in the refrigerator to chill for at least 4 hours. Garnish the top of the pie with cookie halves right before serving.
