Today, we’re talking desserts!
Write a dessert post (share a recipe and/or photo if you want) and add your link to the list below. Then be sure to stop by as many blogs on the list as you can and leave a comment to say hi.
I’ve told you before, I love to bake and make desserts.
And when I do, I usually try to make healthier versions of things… like the cookies or apple pie I shared a while ago.
(and I warned you about this yesterday…)
the dessert I’m talking about today has NO health value whatsoever.
It’s a dessert my mom used to make sometimes when we were growing up, and I even used to make it for Mike when we were in high school together.
So of course (even though it’s completely bad for you) I still make it every now and then.
The kids think it’s great (and when you see the ingredients, you’ll know why. *cringe*).
Last week, my daughter even asked for it on her birthday instead of a birthday cake. (Maybe that’s because it’s called Grasshopper Pie and she likes the name. Or maybe because it’s light green and mint-flavored.)
One good thing, though, if you don’t like to bake: it’s a freezer pie and it’s super easy to make.
Here’s how you do it:
Grasshopper Pie Ingredients:
1 package Oreos (or Oreo-like cookies. Safeway has an organic version of these cookies and they’re really good. Oh wait… there’s something kind of healthy!)
2 jars marshmallow cream
1 large container Cool Whip
1 lid full of peppermint extract
a couple of drops of green food coloring
Put the package of cookies in a bowl or bag and crush them into small bits.
P.S. My daugther did a little dessert making of her own last week too. She made this cake by herself–the whole thing from start to finish. Gotta love the Peeps on top! :)
