Mint Oreo Dessert Ingredients

Mint Oreo Dessert raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

For the Mint Oreo Crust

  • 20 ounces of mint Oreos 
  • 6 tablespoons salted sweet cream butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 tablespoons salted sweet cream butter, softened (for buttering the baking dish)

For the Mint No-Bake Cheesecake Layer

  • 2 (8-ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 (8-ounce) containers of whipped topping, thawed
  • 1½ teaspoons pure mint extract
  • 2 to 3 drops of green food color gel

For the Chocolate Pudding Layer

  • 2 (3.9-ounce) packages of instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 2 cups cold whole milk

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

MINTS: You can add chopped Andes mints to the cream cheese layer and the topping. 

MINT EXTRACT: If you cannot find pure mint extract, you can substitute peppermint extract in this easy dessert.

PUDDING: You can substitute instant dark chocolate pudding mix for the regular instant chocolate pudding mix in this easy recipe.

TOPPINGS: Use a peeler to make chocolate shavings from a chocolate candy bar to sprinkle over top of the dessert. You could also sprinkle chocolate chips on top of your Oreo mint dessert.

How to Make This Mint Oreo Dessert Recipe

STEP ONE: Use either a food processor or a Ziploc bag and a rolling pin and crush 32 mint Oreo cookies for the crust. Reserve 10 cookies to break into smaller pieces for the topping.

STEP TWO: Add the crushed cookies and the melted butter to a medium-sized mixing bowl. Stir to coat the Oreo crumbs completely.

STEP THREE: Use a pastry brush or your fingers to coat the entire surface of a 9×9 square pan with the 2 tablespoons of softened butter. 

STEP FOUR: Press the buttered cookie crumbs into the bottom of the pan. Place the baking dish in the refrigerator while preparing the no-bake cheesecake layer.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

Using the bottom of a glass cup is extremely helpful to press the mixture nice and tightly in the dish.

STEP FIVE: Add the softened cream cheese to a large bowl. Use a handheld electric mixer on medium-high speed and beat the cream cheese for 1 minute until smooth.

PRO TIP:

Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature, so there aren’t any lumps in your mixture.

STEP SIX: Add the powdered sugar to the cream cheese and beat for another 1 to 1½ minutes until combined.

STEP SEVEN: Add 1 cup of the thawed whipped topping and the mint extract. Beat for another 1 minute until combined.

STEP EIGHT: Add 2 to 3 drops of green food coloring gel and mix just until no streaks of green remain and the color is a uniform mint green.

STEP NINE: Remove the baking dish from the refrigerator. Evenly spread the cream cheese mixture over the cookie crumb layer. Return the baking dish to the fridge while you prepare the pudding layer.

STEP TEN: Add the cold milk, 1 cup of the thawed whipped topping, and the instant pudding mix to a medium-sized mixing bowl. Use a handheld mixer at medium speed to combine the pudding mixture. Beat for 1½ to 2 minutes or until the mixture begins to thicken. 

STEP ELEVEN: Remove the baking dish from the refrigerator and spread the pudding over the cream cheese layer. Return the baking dish to the fridge and allow the mint Oreo dessert to fully set up for 2 hours. 

PRO TIP:

Giving this dessert plenty of time to chill will make it easier to cut and give it a thicker consistency. If you plan to make it a day ahead, add it to the fridge overnight and then add the topping just before serving.

STEP TWELVE: Just before serving, evenly spread the remaining thawed whipped topping over top of the pudding layer. Sprinkle the reserved broken cookies over the whipped topping layer. Slice into 9 slices and serve.

How To Serve

This heavenly mint Oreo dessert would be delicious year-round, but its green color makes it especially ideal for St. Patrick’s Day or during the holiday season. Add a peppermint white hot chocolate to wash it down.

For more delightful no-bake recipes, our no-bake lemon pie and chocolate pudding pie are two of our favorites.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: Store any leftovers of this great dessert covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
