Gluten Free Grasshopper Cookie Bars

If you love mint, then these gluten free grasshopper cookie bars are a must make. Not only are they covered in the traditional mint frosting, but they also have a mint cookie crust, that is as easy to make as putting cookies in the food processor.

These babies are ready in about 20 minutes and then just need a bit of time to cool. My daughter went crazy for the frosting, I had to hide the bars because she kept trying to lick it off all of them!

Gluten Free Mint Cookies

Goodie Girls Mint Cookies make an amazing crust. Honestly, all their cookies make a great pie crusts (I used them for this Mint Pie here and as a crumble for these apple pie jars here) I love the extra kick of mint that these cookies bring to the No Bake Gluten Free Grasshopper Cookie Bars, but Goodie Girls Coco Slims would also be great in this recipe. If you haven’t ever tried Goodie Girl cookies you are missing out on some of the best gluten free cookies around. They can be purchased at various grocery stores, on Amazon or on their website!

Recipe Notes

These gluten free grasshopper cookie bars are a snap to make, but of course I have a few tips to make them a bit easier.

Creme de Menthe

Creme de Menthe can be purchased at just about any liquor store, but if you prefer, you can make your own using this recipe or you can also sub in mint extract, a bit of milk and some food coloring to get that green color.

Cream Cheese Frosting

This cream cheese frosting is thick, and you want it that way so that it will slice easily. I used my hand mixer, but if you have a stand mixer, it will be easier. If it doesn’t appear to be thick enough, you can always add in a bit more powdered sugar.

These cookies are great for St. Patrick’s Day and with their green color, perfect for any spring dessert!

    These look absolutely delicious! I’m going to swap out the dairy for dairy-free options and make them vegan. I think that they will turn out great! Thanks for the idea!
