Grasshopper Muddy Buddies

Grasshopper Muddy Buddies

After quite a few busy weekends in a row, it was really nice to have a weekend with no plans.  Especially because the next season of sports is going to be start in a couple weeks, and that means our weekends will be full of football followed by baseball.  So relaxing, a trip to Costco, and just being outside was a nice way to spend a weekend.  But that means, we are back to Monday.  The only way I can see to make Monday better is to have a sweet treat.

Welcome to day #5 of Christmas Week, a multi-blogger event co-hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen of Juanita’s Cocina. Today’s theme for Christmas Week is “Christmas Pies and Pastries”.  I hope you enjoyed this week as much as I have.  So many great bloggers, and so many great recipes!  And to top it off today we have an amazing Giveaway for you!

This pie is a Christmas tradition on my husbands side of the family.  It has quickly become the thing I look forward to most with desserts at my in-laws over Christmas.  It is the classic mint and chocolate combination that I love this time of year.  It is also super light, that you always have room for it, even after a large meal.  And a bonus, there is no baking involved!

My son enjoys this pie as well.  That wasn’t always the case though.  When he was a little younger we would joke that there was real grasshoppers in there, and that was why it was green.  He played it off like he didn’t believe us, but still wouldn’t touch the pie.  Now his smart 7 year old self knows better, and made sure he had a good sized slice when we had it for our early Christmas this year.
