Mint to be….

Crazy thing happened on Friday. I got up early to go to an appointment and did my usual checking of the email, FB, Twitter, etc. and then headed out. Upon returning I did the same. But when I glanced at my FB I noticed over where it had my page it said 20+. I thought what the??? I figured I was being spammed to death and so I went and looked over. Low and behold I had gained 400 plus followers. Ummm, that never happens. Well it does but not in a few hours time.

So I asked where did you all come from? Some were funny and said their parents, which I appreciated the sarcasm. But most told me that Reese’s had posted my famous (it’s the most pinned thing I have made) Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Torte and people had come over from that! So I made an all things peanut butter board on Pinterest for the occasion and plan on making a few peanut butter treats this week on the blog. So welcome new peeps!

St. Patrick’s Day is next week. I had Crème de Mente sitting around because of a recipe I had to make for Tablespoon. There’s not a whole lot you can make with the stuff. But then we were watching Big Bang Theory and Raj was drinking a Grasshopper (which he does often) and I was like bingo! And so I decided to make it in fudge form. Sadly you don’t really get drunk from the fudge since all the alcohol gets cooked out but it’s nice to pretend. :)

This is along the lines of fantasy fudge since it’s made with marshmallow crème so it comes out melt in your mouth. Throw on so shamrock sprinkles and you are down right festive!

Pin It


  1. This looks amazing…and congratulations on being featured by Reeses!! Doesn’t get much better than that :)

  2. This looks so good. Maybe it is the grasshopper in the name but I have a desire to make this with broken grasshoppers/thin mints mixed in…..

  3. That’s so funny. I saw all that peanut butter pinning you did the other day and thought maybe you had gone pb crazy! I also happened to pin your pb torte. Yum! Can’t wait to make it.

  4. Ooohhh. Pretty fudge! I still need to make fudge one of these days….

    And I have seen your peanut butter recipes, many look so amazing and just to gosh dang peanut buttery :P Peanut butter = <3

  5. Help! I’m going to make this as a gift. Can someone tell me if the mint chips are hard to find and are they going to be white? Don’t want to ruin the look of the fabulous fudge! Thanks!!! BTW, any responses before Thursday would be greatly appreciated.

  6. @carole- I responded to your email

  7. My Great-Gramma used to make Grasshopper pie which is made with creme de menthe and white creme de cacao. SOOOOO amazing. One of the most loved, rarely made desserts in my family. I used to think it got me drunk, but I was 10 and what did I know? I have only ever seen it once elsewhere and that was at the Snake River Saloon in Keystone CO. (my gram’s was better, but hey, they tried)

  8. I love all things minty!

  9. Oh my GOSH! This looks SO good-and I have some of those mint chips too. What a great recipe-thank you Peabody-I can’t WAIT to try it.

  10. Mmm I love mint recipes – this looks wonderful!

  11. I had trouble getting this to set. Have you ever had that problem? Was it perhaps that I used too much baking spray? I notice now that it is a bit oily. Any suggestions would be great.

  12. @Em- did you use a candy thermometer?
