Cost: 6


  • 20 Oreo cookies
  • 2 tablespoons (28g) unsalted butter , melted
  • 8 ounces (226g) cream cheese , softened
  • ¼ cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 8 ounce container whipped topping
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 approx. 3.4 ounce box instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 ¼ cups nonfat milk
  • 5-7 drops green food coloring
  • Additional mini chocolate chips or crushed cookies topping


  • 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 9x9” 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.


  • 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.
