It’s SRC day!


Somehow, it has been a month and one of my favourite days is upon me again.

Secret Recipe Club!

Secret Recipe Club

This month I was given The Savvy Kitchen  to stalk enjoy and had a really difficult time deciding what to make.  I was teetering between lettuce wraps with amazing chicken in them or energy bites (something I’m sorely lacking right now) until I saw…

Grasshopper Pie

Decision made.

Oh!  By the way, Amy (aka Savvy Kitchen) is now a new bride so make sure you stop by and say; “Congratulations” to her and her husband C:

Ingredients (Savvy Kitchen’s words are all in italics)

  • 3/4 cup Original Bisquick® mix
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup green crème de menthe (I used creme de cacao because that’s what I had in the house)
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 packages (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips (I used chopped chocolate, again, had it in the house)


Chocolate Topping
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 cup milk chocolate
  • Splash of milk

Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 9-inch glass pie plate with cooking spray.

In large bowl, beat all cheesecake ingredients except chocolate chips with electric mixer on high speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl frequently. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into pie plate.

Bake about 35 minutes or until center is firm and puffed. Cool 45 minutes (cheesecake top will be cracked).

In 1-quart saucepan, heat topping ingredients over medium heat, stirring constantly, until smooth; remove from heat. Carefully spread over cheesecake. Refrigerate at least 3 hours until chilled. Store covered in refrigerator.

And now after that great description, here’s the recipe in pictures. 
Ours didn’t last long enough to get chilled and I was slightly afraid of getting my fingers bitten so I didn’t add the topping. C:

    • I know it ages me but when I was a kid it used to be a topping at restaurants for icecream. I think that would be frowned upon now C:

  5. I’ve never made this, but it’s an anuual Christmas tradition at our house and my dad loves it.

    My recipe from SRC today was quick, easy and so delicious! Come check it out!

  6. YUM! I make a frozen grasshopper pie that my kids adore! I have a feeling they’d like this version, too :)

  14. what a lovely name for a pie!

    • Isn’t it adorable, I did have to explain to small one that there were no grasshoppers though. She was more than a bit disappointed.

  15. So glad you enjoyed this! I really enjoyed the flavors, too. It didn’t last long in my house either :) And thanks for the congratulatory note! I appreciate it!! We just got back from our honeymoon in Tahiti/Moorea/Bora Bora this evening and I’m not ready to be back quite yet :)
