Prep Time25 mins
Total Time2 hrs 25 mins
Servings: 6 cups

Ingredients

  • 24 mint Oreos divided
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • green food coloring
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Place 18 of the mint Oreos in a food processor and pulse until they've turned into crumbs. Scoop out 1/4 cup of the crumbs and set aside. Using the remaining crumbs, place half in the bottom of 6 small cups and press into the cups. Save the rest for topping.
  • Place 1/4 cup of sugar, all of the cream cheese, and peppermint extract in a bowl of a stand mixer. Beat until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the 1/4 cup of mint Oreo crumbs that we reserved in step 1 and about 8 drops of food coloring. Gently fold into the cream cheese mixture until the crumbs are evenly disbursed. It's okay it the green is marbled and not completely mixed in.
  • Scoop cream cheese mixture into 6 cups. Gently tap down cups to make the cream cheese mixture an even layer. Set aside while we make the whipped cream.
  • Add whipping cream to a clean bowl for a stand mixer with vanilla extract. Begin beating on medium. Slowly add remaining 1/4 cup of sugar. Add 5 drops of green food coloring. Increase beating speed and beat until stiff peaks form.
  • Add whipped cream to the prepared cups and spread into an even layer using a spoon. Top each cup with one whole mint Oreo and a 1/2 tablespoon of the remaining crumbs. Refrigerate until chilled through, about 2 hours. Serve and enjoy!
