Taking a classic dessert and turning it into my new Grasshopper Pie Cake, made up of mint chocolate cake layers baked on a mint cookie crust, filled with mint cream cheese and cookie filling and chocolate ganache, and covered with a mint buttercream.
I’m so excited to share with you my new Grasshopper Pie Cake. If you love the classic dessert in pie form, you’re going to absolutely love this cake. I tried to take all the flavor and texture elements of the pie and incorporate them into the cake.
Inside this cake, you’ll find mint chocolate cookie layers under each of the mint chocolate cake layers, just like the pie has a chocolate cookie crust. You also get a somewhat sour and tart filling that’s made up of cream cheese, whipped cream and mint Oreos. It’s a nice contrast to the bittersweet chocolate.
And you’ll notice there’s mint in each of the elements in this cake, but the flavor isn’t overwhelming at all. In fact, it’s actually pretty subtle throughout the cake and is complimented nicely by all the other flavors.
If you don’t want to use mint Oreos, you can sub them for Thin Mints or the Keebler Grasshopper Mint and Fudge Cookies. All of them will be equally amazing in this cake.
