Minty Grasshopper pie filling layered with whipped cream and a Thin Mint cookie crust.
Note: Don't let a lack of "real" parfait glasses (and long spoons) prevent you from making these pretty desserts. Get creative and go to town with whatever glassware you have (wine glasses and martini glasses both work great!). These parfaits were served up in recycled Nutella glasses (one more reason to love Italian Nutella).
This recipe is adapted from a recipe that appeared in the New York Times in 1963, accessed via The Food Timeline.
