Makeover Frozen Grasshopper Torte Recipe

Publisher Photo
Who doesn’t love the frosty, refreshing combo of mint and chocolate? Even better when it comes in the form of an awesome ice cream dessert! This Taste of Home Test Kitchen makeover is just as good as the original. The crunch of the chocolate crust and creamy mint filling make a great pair. Although softer-set than the original, this dessert won’t stick around long enough to melt!

MY REVIEW

Was nervous about this recipe being too sweet, but it was the perfect thing to bring to a thanksgiving affair! It's diabetic friendly which is even better!! I'll definitely make this again!

This was so pretty I just couldn't resist. However, the bottom layer didn't set at all, the crumbs didn't stick to each other and got everywhere. I'm not sure what would fix it, and I didn't want to add a ton more of butter. The taste was good though, and it's very easy to make.

My mother-in-law made this torte for my daughter's 10th birthday. It was a huge hit with everyone! She said it was easy to prepare and we all agreed it was delicious. YUM!!!

This frozen torte was a big hit at our family's Memorial Day cookout! It was a breeze to prepare. The minty flavor was very refreshing on a steamy, hot day making this just the right dessert! My husband has already requested that I make this again for his birthday next month, so it's a keeper recipe for sure!
