Last week marked the 100 year anniversary of Oreos. My favorite thing to do with Oreos, besides eating an entire package of them, is to use them in a crust for pie or cheesecake. That is exactly what I decided to do to celebrate Oreo’s 100th anniversary. I know! I know! I’m a little late. After I decided to make these Grasshopper Pie Cupcakes with an Oreo Crust, I came down with some icky flu. Better late than never, right?
The flu also put a damper on my plan to make all of the fabulous St. Patrick’s Day treats I have been concocting in my head. Stupid flu; maybe next year I’ll opt for that flu shot. Nah, I doubt it. I’m a big ole chicken when it comes to getting shots.
Back to the cupcakes…To add extra minty flavor, I used Mint Oreos (Double Stuffed, YUM) for the crust. Added bonus, there
are now were left over Oreos in the cabinet. The filling is made with Marshmallow Creme, Mint Chocolate Bailey’s Irish Cream & heavy cream. They are topped with a dollop of whipped cream & chocolate shavings. Easy Peasy.
I topped some of them with chocolate syrup.
These are a DELISHOUS minty treat & would be great for your St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
If you rather this can be made into a 9 inch pie instead of cupcakes. No matter what you decide, don’ t forget to take these out of the freezer about 15- 20 minutes before serving.
Here’s the recipe:
