This Mint Oreo Icebox Cake Is Quick And Easy To Make

Certainly by now you know that I also love a more complicated dessert and beautiful cakes as much as the next person, but there are definitely times that easy, quick and super tasty is all you need. This is one of those recipes for one of those times. And it’s perfect for sharing with friends!

And I need an easier dessert to make this weekend. I felt restricted because our garbage disposal was jammed, so no water would go down the drain and when I tried to use the dishwasher, water started filling up the sink. Eek!

So, our Saturday night was spent doing two things.

1. We saw ‘The Lone Survivor’. O.M.G. Have you seen that? Amazing. Must see. It absolutely blows my mind that our service men are trained to be able to go through that. It’s amazing that a body can be trained for that. It’s humbling and makes me so appreciative of what those men and their families sacrifice. One of my very best friends’ husbands flies in the army and I couldn’t help but think of them for a lot of the movie. I cried like a baby. See it. Seriously.

2. The hubs fixed the garbage disposal. I was super impressed. I was convinced we’d need to call a plumber. Instead, he started taking things apart, with me as his sidekick. It wasn’t looking good. He had me googling diagrams of our exact model so we could figure out how to take it apart. He was removing tubes and hoses and stuff. It was scary. But he fixed it! And at least for the night, he was my hero. The sound of a garbage disposal has never been so sweet.

However, when I made this, I still had no good sink options. So easy was preferred.

I Love Minty Oreo Desserts

Plus, it’s full of one of my favorite things – Oreos. I mean really, sometimes I think I will turn into an Oreo. I have always loved them and double stuffed is the way to my heart. Bring on that Oreo filling.

This icebox cake is full of those amazing sandwich cookies of the mint variety. Two boxes of them, to be exact. One box for each layer.

How To Make Mint Oreo Icebox Cake

To make this delicious minty cake, you start by dipping a layer of mint Oreos into milk and making a single layer on the bottom of a 9×13 pan. Since milk and Oreos are made for each other, that makes perfect sense.

Then you’ll top that layer with some chocolate pudding. It always surprises me how much I like pudding when I make it.

Next, I added some mini chocolate chips to give a little crunch. On top of the chocolate pudding, you can add a layer of them, if you like. It’s hard to see them in my pictures except for on the top of the cake, but they’re there.

Chocolate Chips Add Crunch To This Icebox Cake

I have a fabulous girlfriend who absolutely dies over anything mint and chocolate chip. She always tells me how she loves my recipes and she so wonderfully shares many of them. So the chocolate chips in this are in her honor. I hope you like them too! It gives a bit of crunch.

Next, add another layer of milk dipped Oreos.

The next pudding layer is actually a vanilla pudding with some mint extract and green color added to it. Funny, it doesn’t show as much in the pictures either, but darn is it good and minty.

What Toppings Go On This Mint Oreo Icebox Cake?

Finish it off with a layer of Cool Whip (or homemade whipped cream) and sprinkle some more chocolate chips, Oreo crumbs (I had about 3 cookies left for this purpose) and some chocolate sauce.

Can you Freeze Mint Oreo Icebox Cake?

You can freeze this cake or store it in the fridge. My preference was the fridge. Yum! I took it to our small group and it was a hit! A few of them thought it surely had Andes Mints in it, but no. Mint Oreos and mint pudding are responsible for that tasty flavor.

    Just love these kind of recipes – simple, light, fast and delicious. Can’t wait to try this. Thanks!

  2. Melanie

    I am not typically a big pudding or mint person but one of my colleague’s wanted a dessert with mint and cool whip. I made this and omitted the chocolate syrup and halved the chocolate chips. We all agreed it was more minty than chocolatey, but, it was good! I would make this again because it was so easy! I might omit the mint extract since I do not prefer it as much as the next person. Thanks for an easy recipe that is great for work!

  3. Dena

    I made this for a pigout at work yesterday and it was really good. I did break cookies in half to fill in the edges where needed to cover the pan. Many positive compliments and it’s easy which makes it even better! thanks!

  4. Preston

    Hi, love this idea! Really looking forward to making it!

    One question:
    Would it still work with Wagon Wheels or some other mint Oreo-like things, because Australia doesn’t stock them and I am going to have to order them over the Internet.

    I really want to make this!
    Thanks for the recipe!

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      You could definitely use some other kind of chocolate cookie. I’m not really familiar with the wagon wheels, but I googled and it looks like they have out outer chocolate coating. If that’s the case, I’m not sure they’d be the best substitute. The Oreos usually soften front he moisture of the ingredients around them. With the coating, I’m not sure those cookies would do the same. Maybe find another chocolate cookie without the coating?

    IS it necessary to refrigerate Mint Oreo Icebox Cake………i am taking part in cooking without fire competition and they dont provide refrigerator …..if it is necessary to refrigerate then please suggest any sweet dish in which it is not necessary to refrigerate or bake……thanks!

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      You would want to refrigerate this for it to get firm. Once firm, you could leave it out of the fridge for an hour or 2 and it should be fine.

    Hello! I tried this recipe but because oreo cookies are circular, I was wondering what you did to make sure that the entire layer is covered with biscuit, since it’ll inevitably result in holes between the biscuits! Thank you!

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      There isn’t really anything to fix that. Overall the dessert is very pudding-heavy. The Oreos break that up and add some texture and thickness.
