  1. Place the Oreo cookies and melted butter into a food processor and blend until it resembles coarse sand.

  3. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  4. In a microwave proof container combine the marshmallows and milk together and heat for 2 minutes.

  6. Return the container to the microwave and heat for an additional 2 minutes.
  7. Whip to combine.
  8. The marshmallows should be completely melted.
  9. Pour the hot marshmallow mixture into a bowl and place over an iced water bath to cool down.
  10. At this time add the Crème de Menthe into the marshmallow mixture and blend well.
  11. While the marshmallow mixture is cooling down, whip 1 cup of the heavy cream to a firm peak.
  12. You can do this by hand with a full hand whip or with a mixer with a whip attachment.
  13. When the marshmallow mixture is cold to the touch, pour it into the whipped cream and whip until just blended together.
  14. Remove the Oreo crust from the refrigerator and pour the grasshopper mixture into the shell.

  17. Do not over whip.
  18. Garnish the pie with the whipped cream.
  19. Top with chocolate shavings or mini chocolate chips if desired.
