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
