Mint Oreo Ice Cream Dessert starts with a layer of crushed up Mint Oreos, then mint chocolate chip ice cream, hot fudge sauce and Cool Whip. It’s fantastic and the perfect summertime dessert.
This Mint Oreo Ice Cream Dessert is kind of one of those no-brainer, not-really-a-recipe, kind of recipes. You catching my drift here? Super simple to make and can be made days ahead of time if needed.
We are ice cream fanatics at our house, so any dessert involving ice cream always scores big. I actually tried making this weeks ago, but neglected to tell my boys to leave the Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream alone because it was for a dessert, and well, you can probably guess what happened.
We happen to also be an Oreo-loving household so, of course, anything with Oreos ranks right up there at the top of our favorites list.
Not a fan of mint? This is so adaptable to any flavor. Just use regular Oreos instead and any flavor of ice cream you’d like . . . cookies & cream, chocolate peanut butter, cookie dough, etc., whatever your little heart desires. Just make sure you use a good quality ice cream. You can use your favorite store-bought hot fudge sauce or homemade. I use my homemade fudge sauce, but like I said, use store-bought is fine if you’d like.
While we’re still enjoying (or not so much enjoying) these hot summer days we have left, this dessert is the perfect thing to make!Print
Mint Oreo Ice Cream Dessert
- Total Time: 15 minutes
- 1/2 gallon container of Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, softened
- 1 pkg. Mint Oreo cookies
- 1 cup hot fudge sauce (store bought or homemade)
- 1 (8 oz) container Cool Whip, thawed
- Using a food processor, pulse the Oreos into coarse crumbs (or you can put them in a gallon-size Ziploc bag and use a rolling-pin to pound the cookies into coarse crumbs).
- Lightly butter a 9×9 pan and pread a little more than half of the crushed cookies over the bottom of the pan. Carefully spoon the mint ice cream over the top of the crushed Oreos, spreading it as evenly as you can.
- Spread the hot fudge sauce over the top of the ice cream.
- Carefully spread the Cool Whip over the top of the hot fudge layer.
- Sprinkle the remaining Oreo pieces over the top. Cover tightly and freeze for at least 6 hours, or overnight.
- When you are ready to serve, cut into squares and drizzle with more hot fudge sauce if desired.
- Prep Time: 15 minutes

This looks fabulous and the picture is just gorgeous. I cannot wait for that hot fudge recipe–yes, please share soon! I loved hearing about the party you threw. Your husband is lucky to have you to make all that wonderful food. Made the zucchini bread a couple of days ago and it was awesome. I have never used brown sugar on top, but I will do that always as it really made the bread! Thank you!
Hi Teresa! I’m so glad to hear from you. Thanks for your sweet comment. I’m so glad you had a chance to make the zucchini bread and that you loved it. The whole brown sugar thing on top is my favorite thing! I have a zucchini cake recipe on my site where I do the same thing and it’s absolutely delicious! Hope you’re doing well, take care♡!
My daughter and her husband celebrate their birthdays close together. I asked what they wanted their bday “cake” to be and they first told me to look on Jodi’s blog because we always know there are delicious treats on there. Then they found this Oreo dessert so they wanted this. I didn’t have any mint chocolate chip ice cream so I used regular chocolate chip ice cream and it was to die for!!! I can’t wait to try it with the mint ice cream!!! It was the perfect “cake” for their birthdays!! Thanks 5boysbaker for always making me look good!!!
I loved reading your comment Shelly! I am so happy I can make you look good my friend!
Perfect birthday cake for my son who loves ice cream desserts! Thanks for such a simple yet really delicious recipe!
Thanks Jackie! So happy you love this.
Hi Jodi, I plan on making this dessert in the next couple of days. I’m a little confused with the hot fudge sauce. Is it to be heated up first and then poured over the ice cream layer. I’m going to use store bought because of time constraints however cannot wait to try your homemade recipe. I will come back and rate this dessert.
Hi Lucy! I don’t heat up the hot fudge sauce, but if the store bought kind you’re using is super thick, you may want to slightly warm it and stir it well to make it a little easier to spread. Hope you love this!
