Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Mint Theme Week.

What is a Grasshopper Pie? It's a chilled Creme de Menthe-flavored marshmallow pie with a chocolate cookie crust. Today's featured Grasshopper Pie Bar from Ticket Chocolate (Loomis, CA) was a chocolate bar version of this popular pie from last century.*

The bar contained "crunchy dark chocolate cookies in minty creamy milk chocolate...and no grasshopper pieces."

Unfortunately, this bar also contained gluten (cookies), so only a small bite was sampled.
Chocolate cookie pieces added some texture and crunch to a sweet milk and colorful minty green chocolate bar base.

*Other Ticket Chocolate "Beloved Bar" flavors with a hint of tribute nostalgia included the Mom's Apple Pie Bar, Waffle Pecan Chocolate Bar, Roasted Chesnut Beloved Chocolate Bar and a Hazelnut Cherry Stuffing Bar.
