Chocolate Fudge Mint No-Bake Pie

Sweet and creamy peppermint pie filling, piled on top of a mint Oreo cookie crust, layered with chocolate fudge sauce.  Kind of like a Grasshopper Pie, but without any alcohol.  If you love mint, then you gotta make this!  Don’t know what a Grasshopper Pie is?   Then read on to find out!!  The perfect pie for Pi Day (3.14) or Saint Patrick’s Day!!!

My friend Angie, from the gym I go to, asked me to make a few desserts for her holiday get together back in December.  Angie wanted a batch of Slutty Brownies and a Grasshopper Pie.  The typical Grasshopper Pie uses alcohol in the ingredients, but since I knew there were going to be kids eating this, I opted for a more family friendly version.  Not that the name of the Slutty Brownies is family friendly, but that’s why you could also call them Diet Destroying Brownies 😉  I didn’t name the brownies y’all.  I just made them.

I decided to call this pie “Chocolate Fudge Mint Pie” because the Grasshopper Pie is named after the Grasshopper alcoholic drink from the 1950’s, which shares a lot of the same ingredients as the pie.  Since my pie does not have any alcohol in it, I figured I should also make up my own name.  But then again, my pie is also green like a grasshopper…so call this whatever you want.  But just make it.  Because it’s yummy!  And easy!

First make your mint Oreo cookie crust!  You can choose to bake it (like I did) so you get a nice crunchy crust, or you can keep it no-bake and pop the crust in the freezer to set before you add your filling.  You are going to top your crust with a good amount of chocolate sundae sauce too…because why not?!

Print Recipe
Serves: 12 Cooking Time: 8-minutes

Ingredients

  • MINT OREO COOKIE CRUST:
  • 25 mint Oreo Cookies, crushed into a fine crumb
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • CHOCOLATE FUDGE SAUCE:
  • 1/2 cup chocolate fudge sundae sauce (I used Hershey's brand)
  • MINT FILLING:
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (8-ounce) container Cool Whip
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon PEPPERMINT extract (not mint extract)
  • green food coloring (optional)
  • remaining mint Oreo cookies for topping (optional)

Instructions

1

PREPARE OREO CRUST:

2

Preheat oven to 350-degrees (if baking crust). Spray a pie tin with baking spray and set aside. Place 25 mint Oreo cookies in a ziplock bag and smash into fine pieces and crumbs. In a medium-sized microwave safe bowl, melt the butter in the microwave. Add the crushed Oreo cookies to to the melted butter and mix with a fork until the Oreo crumbs and butter are well mixed and your mixture resembles coarse sand. For a crispier crust, bake in 350-degree oven for 8-minutes. Let crust cool on counter. If not baking your Oreo crust, then put in fridge or freezer to set.

3

CHOCOLATE FUDGE LAYER:

4

Heat chocolate sundae sauce in the microwave for approximately 15-seconds, or until it's pourable. Pour chocolate sundae sauce over the prepared Oreo cookie crust. Put crust in freezer to cool and set while you prepare the mint filling.

5

MINT FILLING:

6

In the bowl of a stand mixer, affixed with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese on medium-high speed until light and smooth. Add the entire can of sweetened condensed milk to the cream cheese and beat until combined and smooth. Add in the powdered sugar, peppermint extract and food coloring and mix until combined and smooth. Remove bowl from mixer and fold in the Cool Whip by hand.

7

Pour mint filling out onto mint Oreo cookie crust and top with crushed mint Oreo cookies. Put the pie in the freezer to set. After pie has set, cover with plastic wrap and return to the freezer. Store in freezer until 5-minutes before serving.

Notes

Store covered in the freezer.

Oh yeah…might as well top the pie off with the rest of the mint Oreo cookies!!

I waited forever to share this yummy recipe with you, because I just thought it would be perfect for Saint Patrick’s Day (that greeeeeeeeen color!!) or for Pi Day….  3.14!  Us food bloggers take advantage of all holidays to bring you something special, whether you think Pi Day is really a day or not.  Every day should be Pi Day in my book!  And apparently it is, because I have been making a lot of pies lately!  I guess you guys like pie?!!!  Let me know what your favorite pie is, by leaving a comment below.  It might just wind up on the blog next!!!

XOXO,

Kelly

    #yummy Top of the mint to you for St. Patrick’s Day. Do believe I’d opt to make your kid-friendly version and the grown-up pie. Both look to be divine (and very do-able!)
