Some flavor combinations are truly better together, like the cool mint and rich chocolate of a grasshopper cocktail, grasshopper pie and now grasshopper lush. That’s right, the Betty Crocker™ Test Kitchens have dreamed up a decadent new dessert featuring classic grasshopper flavor. It all starts with a fudgy brownie base bedecked with chopped Oreo™ mint creme chocolate sandwich cookies, covered with minty pudding and topped with Cool Whip™ frozen whipped topping and (more!) crushed cookies. Since it’s made to be made ahead, and in your 13x9 no less, it’s perfect for a party—just prepare to come home with an empty dish!

  • 2 1/2 cups cold milk
  • 1 container (8 oz) Cool Whip frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1/4 teaspoon Betty Crocker™ green gel food color
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract


  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.

    Make brownie batter as directed on box for cakelike brownies. Stir in 1 cup of the chopped cookies. Spread in pan. Bake 24 to 26 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side comes out almost clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For best results and easy cutting, be sure to refrigerate at least 4 hours.
  • tip 2
    Roughly chopping the sandwich cookies by hand gives the best texture. If you’re in a rush, place cookies in a zip-top plastic bag, and crush by going over with a rolling pin a few times.
  • tip 3
    Grasshopper flavor began with the iconic cocktail, which is made with cream, crème de menthe and white crème de cacao. It’s a sweet drink and accordingly was served as a dessert cocktail. “Grasshopper” refers to the bright green color of the drink.
  • tip 4
    Grasshopper pie was inspired by the cocktail. Typically, grasshopper pie includes a no-bake crust of crushed chocolate wafer cookies and a cold, creamy filling made of marshmallows, crème de menthe and crème de cacao—among other sweet ingredients.
  • tip 5
    Lushes, sometimes called dessert lasagnas, are decadent chilled treats that feature several sweet layers. Usually the base of a lush is made of cookies or brownies while layers often include pudding, whipped cream, cream cheese and other rich and creamy ingredients. With their pretty layers and crowd-friendly sizing (our recipes are all made in 13x9-inch pans), lushes are perfect for a party!
