Makeover Frozen Grasshopper Torte Recipe

Makeover Frozen Grasshopper Torte Recipe

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!
