Easy Frozen Grasshopper Torte ~ Christmas Desserts

Posted on

This dessert was wonderful! Perfect from Christmas! I first made this minty cool torte for a ladies’ meeting at our church. I’m still making it, and the compliments keep coming. I’m not even the biggest fan of mint desserts but will definitely make this again. One thing I love about this recipe is it’s delicious and you can make ahead and have ready. Oh I made it in my new TOH springform pan, love it too. A winner!!
