Frozen Chocolate Mint Dessert Recipe

“This is adapted from my great-aunt's recipe for grasshopper pie. It came about by accident, as I put in too much mint extract. To cut the mint taste with something gooey and chocolaty, I ended up flipping the whole pie upside-down on top of a brownie crust.” Sarah Newman - Brooklyn Center, Minnesota

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 13, 2012

"Delicious.... You do not have to use two bags of marshmallows as the recipe calls for, and I only used an 8 oz container of low fat cool whip. It came out just fine! I read one of the other reviewers comment regarding it being too sweet, so I tweaked a bit! You can use one bag & about a quarter of another bag of the marshamellows. It will be perfect! I also used no fat Lactaid milk as well."

"Really good, but REALLLLLLLY sweet! Due to all the marshmallows I guess! Left the mint extract out."
