No Bake Mint Chip Dessert Lasagna

This mint chocolate chip no-bake recipe is one of the easiest ways to make a dessert that everyone will love. Sometimes called dessert lasagnas, lush desserts, or no bake dream desserts, these moussey layered treats are tried-and-true crowd pleasers. And since you don’t have to mess around with temperatures, cook times, and complicated decoration, it’s pretty hard to mess up! In my book, that’s a winner. 

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

  • Easy and no-bake with pudding mix.
  • Mint Chip flavor is one of our favorites!
  • You can make this up to two days ahead – it’s even better as it sits.

Ingredients in Mint Chip Lush

  • Oreo cookies: Use any kind of Oreos for this – we love using regular Oreos or Double Stuf, or use Mint Oreos!
  • Cream cheese – regular or low-fat can be used
  • Sugar – granulated sugar to sweeten the filling
  • Peppermint extract – don’t buy mint extract, get peppermint. It tastes so much better!
  • Whipped topping – The body of this uses Cool Whip. You can use regular, light, or fat-free – or even sugar free.
  • Pudding Mix – make sure it’s INSTANT chocolate pudding

How to Make Mint Chip Lasagna

  • Make the crust: In a large ziplock bag, fill it with your Oreo cookies and seal it off, leaving one inch of the closure unzipped. Gently crush the Oreo cookies. Pour the melted butter into the Ziploc bag and mix it into the crushed cookies. Once well mixed, pour the mixture into a 9×9” baking dish and spread it evenly. 
  • Make the filling: In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese with a hand mixer until it becomes smooth. Add the sugar, vanilla, and ¼ teaspoon of peppermint extract. Feel free to add more, but I would avoid exceeding ½ teaspoon. Using about half of the container, add the whipped topping, chocolate chips, and green food coloring. Combine thoroughly and spread it over the crust. 
  • Mix the pudding: Whisk the milk and pudding mix together for about thirty seconds. Allow the mixture to sit until the pudding has thickened. Once it’s reached the desired consistency, spread it over the previous layer.
  • Top it off: Spread the whipped topping over the pudding layer and sprinkle with chocolate chips or Oreo cookies. Cover it up and chill for at least two hours before digging in!

Expert Tips

  • For extra minty flavor, swap out the classic Oreos for their mint flavor!
  • Using a rolling pin will make it a lot easier to crush the Oreos when making the crust. Just don’t go too crazy with it – it may be fun to wield a rolling pin, but you want to keep things gentle.

Instructions

  • Place cookies in a large resealable bag. Seal all but one inch of the bag and gently crush the cookies using a rolling pin. Pour melted butter into the bag and mix gently with your hands. Pour the crushed cookies into a 9×9” baking dish. Spread evenly over the bottom. (The crust will not completely join together as a pie crust will.)
  • Beat cream cheese in a large bowl with a hand mixer until smooth. Mix in sugar, vanilla and 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract. Add more peppermint extract, up to 1/2 teaspoon total, as desired for your personal taste. Fold in 1/2 the container (about 1 1/2 cups) whipped topping. Fold in chocolate chips. Add green food coloring and gently stir to fold in the color. Spread the mint layer over the cookie layer.
  • Mix the pudding mix with the milk. Whisk for 30 seconds. Let sit for a few minutes until the pudding thickens, then spread over mint layer.
  • Top with the remaining whipped topping and sprinkle with additional chocolate chips or crushed cookies. Cover and chill at least 2 hours before serving. Eat within 3 days.

Recipe Notes

  • For extra minty flavor, swap out the classic Oreos for their mint flavor!
  • Using a rolling pin will make it a lot easier to crush the Oreos when making the crust. Just don’t go too crazy with it – it may be fun to wield a rolling pin, but you want to keep things gentle. 
  • Use any flavor or style Cool Whip
  • You can use any kind of pudding mix – just make sure it’s INSTANT pudding mix.
  • Use cows milk for best results.
  • You can make this up to 48 hours ahead of serving. The chocolate layer will discolor the whipped topping layer slightly.
  • If you want to use freshly whipped cream use about 3 cups.

  1. This looks so light and creamy! I really enjoy desserts like this! And I totally agree with Jordan. Mint should be colored green!

  2. Dude, Jordan is so right. Unless it’s peppermint (in which case it has to be pink or red), if it’s mint, it has to be green. This mint lush looks amazing! 

  3. Melba’s Delight is this name of the recipe I have. I have been making this dessert with pistachio pudding (instant) for about 35 years. It’s so good. I have not tried any other pudding mix but you can use any flavor you want to. It is very easy to make.
