Grasshopper Cheesecake

Pin It

What better way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day than with something green? Here's something sweet to wash down with all that green beer you'll be drinking tomorrow.
Grasshopper cake is made with crème de menthe, which is just a mint flavored liquor. This cheesecake version is a little different than the traditional cake version, but anything that includes cheesecake is a winner in my book. The cake is really light and creamy with a subtle minty flavor. There's not even a crust that you have to make beforehand, so that makes this quick and even healthier in my opinion. Enjoy and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Printable Recipe

  • 3/4 cup Original Bisquick® mix
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup green crème de menthe
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 packages (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
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.
