Frozen Grasshopper Torte
Total TimePrep: 25 min. + freezing
This dessert was good, and everyone enjoyed it. However, I wouldn't say that it was great. I thought it needed more peppermint flavor.
very tasty and not too complicated. I did the 1/2 tsp of peppermint.
Great recipe. The crust will seem like it's lacking butter, but that's intentional because once it's frozen, too much butter makes it difficult to cut.
I halved the cookie crust, used very good ice cream, did the nezt layer as said and smashed a candy cane for the garnish, Christmas time so pretty. It was lovely. One thing l,love about this recipe is it's delicious and you can make ahead and have ready. Oh l made it in my new TOH springform pan, love it too. A winner. Janet
This was wonderful! I'm not even the biggest fan of mint desserts but will definitely make this again. I used 25 mint cream oreos and 15 regular. I took 12 of the mint creams off of the cookies and froze them on wax paper. After the whole thing was set, I took off the sides of the spingform pan and stuck on the cream circles around the outside. I put it back in the freezer for about 2 hours and it looked as good as it tasted!
I make this every year for a fundraiser and it gets rave reviews! It's cool and minty and just plain delicious! Here is how I do it: I prepare it in a 9x13 pan, and use 1 package of mint oreos for the crust. Just smash them up--(you don't need to separate them). It makes a perfect crust. I like a definite "mint" taste so I use 1 tsp of peppermint extract (instead of 1/2 tsp). I also add 5 drops of green food coloring for a nice green color. Last up, I skip the heavy whipping cream, and just use extra creamy cool-whip instead. Voila! My tweaks make this recipe easier and it's just as delicious!

I made this for a birthday, and it was a huge hit! Just don't let the ice cream soften too much, because it won't firm up. I'm going to make this for a baby shower this weekend.
