This frozen grasshopper square dessert is one that I think would be a perfect green dessert for St. Patrick’s Day. It came from Kraft Foods. It is cool and creamy, and filled with Oreo and mint! What could be better than that?

What’s great about it as well is that it’s easy and is sooo good. If you like mint and Oreos, I promise you’ll love this next recipe cuz man, was it good! It is one of our fave desserts!

This is the perfect Green Dessert for St. Patrick’s Day and is super easy, which is something I always look for. 🙂

Tips + Storing Info

Everyone knows that you should let ice cream sit on the counter for a few minutes to soften it up before scooping, but not everyone remembered to do so. If you’re in a time crunch and need to soften ice cream quickly or, in this case soften a large amount, I would suggest combining a few different methods. 

  • Microwave: Heat at 30% power for 30 second increments until it’s soft enough to scoop. 
  • Hot ice cream scoop: Use hot water to warm up the ice cream scoop. Dry off water before scooping. Repeat after every 1-2 scoops
  • Use a stand mixer: Attach the paddle and mix the ice cream scoops until they begin to smooth out. 

 

I don’t think there is such a thing as too much mint chocolate. To make this grasshopper treat even more minty try using mint oreos. You can also add chopped mint chocolates such as Andes Mints or Jr. Mints.

To cut this grasshopper cake, depending on how frozen your cake is you may need to allow a few minutes for it to thaw. You can put it in the fridge for 20-30 minutes or let it sit on the counter for 10-15 minutes. Use a sharp, long, serrated knife, dip it in hot water to warm it up, wipe off the water and cut your slices. Warm the knife up in water after every 1-2 cuts. 

You can easily change things up by using a different pan. Though you may need to adjust the ingredient amounts to fit the pan size or use more than one pan. Pie plates and round springform pans are both great alternatives.

For best results STORE in the freezer for about 7 days. Beyond that ice crystals tend to form and the quality and taste of the cake begin to degrade.

  1. Wow! Sounds like a perfect dessert for me I love oreos and mint ice cream is my favorite! The chocolate curls just give these bars the perfect touch!

  2. I make a version of this where you pour a jar of hot fudge over the cruched oreos before the ice cream layer and it’s amazing.

    1. Mmmmm, that sounds delish!! Thanks for the suggestion. – I will try that next time! Thanks for stopping by! 😀

  3. Okay, well, since I happen to luuuuurve mint an Oreos (in fact, I just ate a mint oreo…how about that?), then I think it’s pretty much necessary for me to make these soon!

    Thanks for sharing!
