How to Make Mint Chocolate Lasagna

  1. Create The Crust: Stir together the crushed cookies and the melted butter and press the cookie crumbs into the bottom of the baking dish. Chill in the refrigerator while preparing the no-bake cheesecake layer.
  2. Make The Cheesecake Mixture: Beat the cream cheese until smooth, add the powdered sugar, and beat to combine. Add whipped topping and mint extract and beat for another minute. Mix in the green food coloring gel.
  3. Cover The Crust: Spread the cream cheese mixture over the cookie crumb crust. Return to the fridge while you prepare the pudding layer.
  4. Prepare The Pudding: Beat together the milk, whipped topping, and the pudding mix until the mixture begins to thicken. Spread the pudding over the cream cheese layer and chill in the fridge for 2 hours. 
  5. Serve: Spread the remaining whipped topping over the pudding layer and sprinkle with broken cookies. Cut into 9 slices and serve. Enjoy!

How to Soften Cream Cheese

I recommend you take your cream cheese out of the refrigerator for at least an hour before making your dessert lasagna mixture. Allowing it to soften to room temperature makes for the creamiest of fillings.
In the case that you can’t let it soften over time, you can unwrap the package and microwave it on a plate in 15-second intervals, turning often, until soft. Be sure not to overheat it or it will melt.

Pro Tips

  • If you cannot find the pure mint extract, you can substitute peppermint extract.
  • Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature so that you don’t end up with lumps in your cheesecake layer.
  • Make sure to chill your Mint Oreo dessert for at least two hours before serving to give the flavors time to come together.

How to Store Dessert Lasagna

  • To Store: Store any leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • To Freeze: You can freeze the mint Oreo dessert for up to 2 months. Allow the dessert to thaw overnight in the fridge before slicing and serving.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best way to crush Oreo cookies?

I like to pulse my Oreos in the food processor until they are fine crumbs. If you don’t have a food processor, you can easily place your cookies in a large Ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin.

Can I make chocolate Lasagna in advance?

You can absolutely make your dessert a day in advance, wrap it in plastic wrap, and place it in the refrigerator. When you are ready to serve, garnish it with a layer of whipped topping and cookie pieces.

Instructions
 

  • Use either a food processor or a ziplock and a rolling pin and crush 32 cookies for the crust. Reserve 10 cookies to break into smaller pieces for the topping.
  • Add the crushed cookies and the melted butter to a medium-sized mixing bowl. Stir to completely coat the cookie crumbs.
  • Use a pastry brush, or your fingers, to coat the entire surface of a 9×9 baking dish with the 2 tablespoons of softened butter.
