Shelly's Skinny Tip: These take the place of cake pops. Remember cake pops - tons of ingredients, special equipment, a HOT oven, and one cake pop has 180 calories. Our s'more pops - 4 ingredients, no fancy equipment, no stove, less than 50 calories.
½ cup whipping cream
1 container of light whipped topping (room temperature)
1 jar marshmallow cream
5 drops of green food coloring
½ tsp of peppermint extract
4 full sheets of chocolate gram crackers
½ cup of chocolate fiber one cereal
Gummy worms (for garnish)
1-With a hand mixer, beat whipping cream, whipped topping, marshmallow cream for 2 minutes.
2-Add ½ tsp of peppermint extract. Beat for 30 seconds.
3-Fold in green food coloring. Place mixture aside.
4-Place gram crackers and chocolate fiber one in a zipped/sealed bag. Crush.
5-In 6 clear glasses (plastic is fine) evenly scoop whipped mixture.
6-Layer gram cracker mixture.
7-Place a gummy worm for garnish.
TIP: Refrigerate or freeze cups before dishing in pie filling and topping.
Shelly's Skinny Tip: Traditional grasshopper pie calls for over 2 cups of cream and a chocolate crust, which translates to lots of fat and calories. We 'skinnyed' this recipe by using only ½ cup whipping cream combined with a container of light whipped topping. Our crust is a combination of crushed chocolate gram crackers and chocolate fiber one.
