    This was my birthday cake many times ! I use the Nabisco chocolate wafer cookies for the crust ! The kind you use heavy cream to make the refrigerator cake, another birthday fave ! This pie is delicious and its different and visually appealing !
    Even non mint blinkers, may go for this ! My Aunt also made a s similar pie with Kailua !!

    So glad to see one that uses Marshmallows instead of gelatin. I tried making one with it and it was a disaster as the gelatin went all rubbery and didn’t want to mix in Pie never set right. Maybe try this method instead. Could one melt the marshmallows in the Microwave??

    Save yourself the Oreo step; use 1 1/4 cup crushed Famous Chocolate Wafers..found in most large grocery stores. Mix with 1/3 cup melted butter, press into pan and chill. Then add filling.

    PERFECT recipe as-is, do not change a thing!

    After having made many “mistake” pies (soup and such), glad to hear the secret is getting everything cold before mixing it together. That really makes the difference.

    I just made one in Michigan – easy to keep the crust cool outside in the snow, easy to keep the bowl for the whipping cream outside in the snow…. easy to freeze the pie outside in the snow…..

    Do not use store bought crusts, it’s easy to de-cream the Oreos, put them in a plastic Zip loc bag and smash them with a rolling pin. Even the cream de cocoa has a purpose – makes the pie more chocolatey mint. And there’s only 1/4 cup of alcohol in the whole pie, so let the kids have a sliver too. Mmmmm!!

    Always loved Grasshopper Pie. Been making it for years…

    Instead of Oreos, we use Nabisco Famous Wafers. (http://tinyurl.com/2fv49kr) Basically, the Oreos without the filling. You have to search for them. They’re waaaay up on a top shelf in my local grocery store. Just whiz in a food processor and instant pie crust crumbs…
