For the Crust

  • 1 package (14.3 ounces) Oreo cookies (not double stuff), crushed
  • 5 ½ tablespoons butter, melted

For the cheesecake layer

  • 2 8-ounce packages of cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons peppermint extract, mint extract can also be used

For the whipped topping layer

  • 8-ounce container of whipped topping
  • ¾ cup chopped mint chocolate chunks, such as Andes mints

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

Chocolate chips: Instead of topping the dessert with chopped chocolate mints, you could use ¾ cup of mini chocolate chips.

Chocolate shavings: Use a peeler to make chocolate shavings from a chocolate candy bar to sprinkle over top of the dessert lasagna.

Mint extract: If you realize you have mint extract instead of peppermint extract, never fear! Mint extract will work just fine to give it a cool mint flavor.

HOW TO MAKE THIS MINT CHIP DESSERT LASAGNA RECIPE

STEP ONE: Lightly spray a 9×13-inch glass casserole dish with nonstick spray.

STEP TWO: In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the crushed Oreo crumbs and the melted butter. Evenly spread and press the cookie crumbs in the bottom of the sprayed casserole dish. Place in the refrigerator to chill while making the cheesecake layer.

PRO TIP: To crush your Oreos, you can either do it in a food processor or in a Ziploc bag with a rolling pin.

STEP THREE: Using a stand mixer or a handheld electric mixer and a large mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese on medium speed for 1 minute until smooth.

PRO TIP: Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature so that you don’t end up with any lumps in your cream cheese layer.

STEP FOUR: Reduce the mixer speed to low and slowly add the powdered sugar a ½ cup at a time, mixing well after each ½ cup addition.

STEP FIVE: Keeping the mixing speed low, slowly add the milk or half-and-half and the mint extract. Once the milk and mint extract are well incorporated, add the liquid green food coloring one drop at a time. Using a silicone spatula, scrape down the sides and the bottom of the mixing bowl to keep the green color uniform and without streaks.

STEP SIX: Remove the cookie crust from the refrigerator and evenly spread the cheesecake layer onto the Oreo cookie crust. Return the casserole dish to the refrigerator.

STEP SEVEN: Using a stand mixer or hand mixer and a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the milk and the box of instant chocolate pudding mix. Mix on medium speed until the pudding starts to thicken. 

STEP EIGHT: Remove the casserole dish from the refrigerator and evenly spread the layer of chocolate pudding over the cheesecake layer. Evenly sprinkle the mini-chocolate chips over the pudding.

STEP NINE: Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 to 2 ½ hours.

STEP TEN: After chilling, use a offset spatula to evenly spread the container of whipped topping over the pudding layer. Then, sprinkle the chopped mint chocolate chunks over the whipped topping. 

PRO TIP: Chilling this dessert overnight will make it easier to cut and a thicker consistency. If you plan to make it a day ahead, add it to the fridge overnight and then add the toppings just before serving.

STORAGE

FAQ

Can I use homemade whipped cream instead of Cool Whip?

You can use homemade whipped cream if you prefer. Check out our homemade whipped cream for a great recipe.

Can I use mint Oreos for the crust?

If you can find mint Oreos at the grocery store, you can definitely use them instead of plain Oreos but it isn’t absolutely necessary that your crust is minty as the peppermint extract will do the job of adding the mint flavor.

Is there a specific chocolate pudding I should use?

Any chocolate pudding will work fine. If you would like to use a chocolate fudge or dark chocolate, it would add even more chocolatey goodness to your dessert.
