  1. looks soo good I am going to have to look for these ingredients. Did you crush the oreos and mints yourself??

  2. I love grasshopper desserts. Anything with chocolate and mint = yum! But why do they call it grasshopper?

  3. Namine- yes, I do crush them myself.

    Tiffany, I don't know why that call it Grasshopper? Maybe because they are green and they hop in broen dirt? I have no clue. I'll do my research and get back to you.
