Calling All Mint Lovers

This is a delicious and easy to make pie for the mint lovers out there! The recipe called for pistachio pudding, which confused me a little, but it definitely gives the pie a nice minty green color. You don't taste the pistachio flavor at all. Chunks of cool mint Oreos are scattered throughout the fluffy pie filling and add just enough mint flavor and crunch. I bet this would taste good if made with Girl Scout Thin Mints. I will have to try that next time. If frozen, this pie tastes like a Mint Chocolate Cookie Ice Cream Pie. Enjoy!


Chocolate Mint Grasshopper Pie
recipe link @ kraftfoods.com

1-1/2 cups cold milk
1 pkg. (4-serving size) pistachio flavor instant pudding
2 cups thawed whipped topping, divided
6 Double Stuff Oreo Cool Mint Creme Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, chopped
1 chocolate pie crust (6 oz.)
1 square semi-sweet chocolate

Directions:
Pour milk into large bowl. Add dry pudding mix. Beat with wire whisk 2 min. or until well blended. Gently stir in 1-1/2 cups of the whipped topping and the chopped cookies. Spoon into crust. Spread with remaining 1/2 cup whipped topping.

Melt chocolate as directed on package; drizzle over pie.

Refrigerate 2 hours or freeze until firm. If frozen, remove pie from freezer about 10 min. before serving; let stand at room temperature to soften slightly. Store leftovers in refrigerator or freezer.
