Ferd’s Grasshopper Pie Recipe

Ferd’s Grasshopper Pie

Ingredients

Keebler Ready Crust Chocolate Pie Crust (or similar)

3/4 cup milk

24 large marshmallows

4 TBSP Creme de Menthe

2 TBSP Creme de Cacao

1 cup heavy whipping cream

optional: green food coloring (I don’t usually use it)


1.

Buying the pre made chocolate pie crust saves a lot of time and turns out better than any home made crust I’ve ever made.

2.

I usually use a double boiler, or at least two pots to serve the same purpose. That way the milk/marshmallows don’t burn.

Heat the milk to boiling or almost boiling, then melt all 24 marshmallows into it.

After the marshmallows are all melted, add the Creme de Menthe and Creme de Cacao.

Allow to cool a little bit.

3.

While that is going on, you can whip up the cup of whipping cream. Important: It won’t whip up unless everything is cold- the whipping cream, the beaters, and the bowl you use for whipping. I keep the beaters and the bowl in the freezer until I’m ready to use them.

4.

Then fold (not beat or stir) the whipped cream into the marshmallow preparation, trying to keep it as fluffy as you can, until blended well together.

Pour it all into the pie crust.

5.

After it has cooled in the refrigerator, preferably overnight, you can grate some chocolate off of any chocolate candy bar over the pie as a decoration. A vegetable peeler works really well, too.

6.

Eat a bunch of it and enjoy!!!
