Grasshopper fudge is the perfect fun green recipe for your holiday parties. Move over thin mints, this is so much tastier and available all year long!
Grasshopper Fudge-assuredly devoid of actual grasshoppers. Other than the obvious connection to grasshoppers being green, I’m not really sure where Grasshopper Fudge gets its name.
I believe it is a reference to the famous Grasshopper cocktails made from creme de menthe and creme de cocoa. But don’t worry, you won’t need any 1950’s era cocktails to make this sweet treat!
This fudge is easy, tasty, and fun. Because who doesn’t like cookies and mint? (shhhh… you’ll break my heart if you tell me you don’t like cookies and mint!).
Make it for a St. Patrick’s Day party, Christmas festivities, or just because you like the color green! Honestly, who needs an excuse to make fudge anyway? So, go to it! And then? Check out my other awesome fudge recipes!

How Do You Make Grasshopper Fudge
First, in a food processor, pulse cookies until they are completely crumbled. Press cookies down into a lined loaf pan.
Then, in one bowl, combine the frosting, mint extract, and food coloring. Mix well.
Next, in a second bowl (or on the stovetop) melt the chocolate chips. When chocolate chips are completely melted, combine the contents of the two bowls and mix well.
Finally, pour the contents of your bowl into the parchment lined loaf pan over the pressed cookies. Spread evenly and chill to set.
