Mint Brownie Grasshopper Pie in a Jar

grasshopper pie in a jar

I used to hate stuff in jars.

Seriously, people would give me those bean soup in a jar gifts at Christmas, and they’d stay, unused in my pantry…well, forever.  Let’s face it, back then I wasn’t really into the homemade gift thing, especially when it required me to actually do something in the kitchen.  Don’t give me oatmeal cookie mix in a jar, okay?  I just want the cookies.  Baked, done, and ready to stuff in my pie-hole.

I don’t know, I’m an enigma even to myself.

What happened to the days when I was 100 percent proof positive I was going to marry a guy who cooked, so I could stay out of the kitchen?

I had no desire to cook.  At all.  Not even a little bit.

Now I’m preparing individual-sized desserts in a jar and posting them on the internet.  I’m not sure what to say about this.

Except that grasshopper pie in a jar is really, really good.

Especially when you use brownies for the crust.  Brownies that are chunked with mint chips.  ‘Cause, you know, a regular cookie crust just isn’t fattening enough for me.

  3. I can’t take this anymore! I must have some chocolate & minty goodness. It looks so perfect.. so refreshing.. so petite and cute and I love that it’s a brownie crust because that makes cookie crusts look so passe.

    I love this recipe project. I hope you will stop by and link up to my St. Patty’s Day Project Parade.

  12. How funny, I was feeling the same way about cooking. I wouldn’t mind making dinner, if I didn’t have to do it EVERY SINGLE NIGHT!! I recently made rainbow cake in jars. They looked super cute, and the little ones were extremely impressed, which is basically all I was going for! I absolutely adore the mint-and-chocolate flavor combination, which means I have to make this recipe! The new problem I have is finding time to make all the recipes I’ve been pinning! (Cute blog, by the way. I’ll be back!)

  13. These are too cute, and I love grasshopper pie, can’t wait to try!

  14. You had me at brownie crust…then you said it was studded with mint chips!!! Big time bonus!!! I love these cute frozen pies in the jars. Thank you so much for sharing on Trick or Treat Tuesday!!!

  15. I am so happy to find this through BrewCrew Life! Yummmm…please come link up on Totally Tasty Tuesdays.
