Froggy Pie

mint chocolate pie

I have no idea why this is called Froggy Pie. Maybe because it is green? Grasshopper I totally get, but no Froggy. Hmmm…. one will never know.

Whatever the reason is, I don’t really care, I just want to eat it. Frequently.

This is what I would consider a retro dessert. It is creamy, and minty, and has a delectable Oreo cookie crust. I saw this pie years ago on the Food Network during a pie competition. What I thought was really weird was that it was in the Thanksgiving Pie category. I don’t know about you, but this is not the kind of dessert that I serve on Turkey Day. But regardless, I was intrigued, and still had to make it. I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious it is and how much people love it.

    That is a stunning pie! I think it’s so cute that you posted froggy pie and I just posted monkey bread. It is kind of puzzling where names like that come from.

    1. bakedbree

      what is it with animal name desserts?

  2. Paula

    I love that mint colour!

    1. bakedbree

      is tastes as good as it looks.

  3. Holly

    You make it look so easy. I want to make one! Of course, this has zero calories right? ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. bakedbree

    We’ve had a rough day here at my house, I think this would help ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. bakedbree

      chocolate, mint and whipped cream? Yes, I think it will. Hope tomorrow is far less rough!

  6. Astrid

    Wonderful – this would be a great treat to serve on St. Patrick’s Day or on a day when the family feels like being a little crazy and we have Green Eggs and Ham! Great new header.

    1. bakedbree

      Those are great ideas. I would make this for St. Pat’s. Very festive.

  7. Abigail

    I’m dying to try this recipe but can’t because it uses gelatin as I am a vegetarian. Have you ever used Kojel, Lieber’s Jel, or even something like ClearJel with success?

    1. bakedbree

      No, I have not, sorry.

  8. Olivia

    is the alcohol okay for children to consume? or is there an alternate way to make this without the creme de menthe?

    1. bakedbree

      That is up to you, but some things that I make are for adults only.

  9. Alicia

    The liquor store only had the clear cream de menthe, is it going to ruin the froggy pie?

    1. bakedbree

      Nope, just put a couple of drops of green food coloring in there.
