Girl Scout cookies are amazing on their own, but take those minty delights and use them to make our Mini Grasshopper Pies and now you've got a world-class dessert that you didn't even break a sweat making. This easy dessert recipe is sure to earn you a "Best Dessert" badge for sure!

What You'll Need:
  • 32 chocolate-covered mint cookies, divided
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 10 drops green food color
  • 1 (8-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
What To Do:
  1. Place 18 paper cupcake liners in muffin tins. Place 1 cookie in bottom of each paper liner; set aside. Coarsely crush 8 cookies; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Beat in sweetened condensed milk and green food color until thoroughly mixed. Fold in 2 cups whipped topping and coarsely crushed cookies. Spoon mixture evenly into paper liners.
  3. Cover and freeze 8 hours or overnight. When ready to serve, garnish each with a dollop of whipped topping and remaining cookies, however you like.

Chocolate and peppermint are one of the "winningest" taste combinations, as far as we're concerned! For a delicious treat, try our Chocolate- and Peppermint-Coated Pretzels!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

These were delicious but I thought they would be firmer. I froze them overnight - was it something I did or are they supposed to be rather 'loose'?

Great question! Yes, they are supposed to be soft but firm, not loose. Make sure to use regular frozen whipped topping and not fat free. Also, be sure to not over stir when adding the frozen whipped topping. Let us know how this turns out for you next time that you make it. We would love to know!

Yum! Didn't even need the extra toppings! My teenage son declared them to be incredibly scrumptious!

joan nick. Did you use evaporated milk instead of comdensed milk that the recipe called for. If so that's why it didn't turn out.

A disaster.very dense batter.very heavy cake.a waste of costly ingredients.this recipe called for1 cup evaporated milk,was this the problem.had to trash the cake,husband wouldn't try to eat it,very well fed critters on our property.

Sorry they didn't turn out better, Joan. You might have misread the recipe because it doesn't call for evaporated milk, but rather sweetened condensed milk. Maybe give it another shot.
