This fluffy, minty, retro take on the classic grasshopper cocktail—from Kate McDermott’s Art of the Pie—requires no baking. And since the filling’s made with only five ingredients (heaped into a chocolate cookie crust), this treat proves it’s so easy being green.

Makes 1 (9-inch) pie

  • 24 marshmallows
  • 2/3 cup half-and-half
  • 2 Tbsp. crème de cacao
  • 2 Tbsp. crème de menthe
  • 1/2 pint whipping cream
  • 1 premade chocolate cookie pie crust
  • 4 Tbsp. cream
  • 1 tsp. finely ground chocolate cookie crumbs
  • Mint leaves, for garnish


    Active time: 20 minutes
    Total time: 1 hour, 20 Minutes

    Melt marshmallows in half-and-half in a double boiler. Remove mixture from heat and let cool. Fold in crème de cacao and crème de menthe. Whip whipping cream and mix into filling; pour entire mixture into pie crust. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. To serve, whip cream and spread over top of pie. Sprinkle cookie crumbs evenly over whipped cream and garnish with mint leaves.
