Ingredients
  1. 2 3/4 cup finely crushed mint chocolate cookies
  2. 5 mint chocolate cookies, broken into large pieces
  3. 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  4. 40 unwrapped pieces Andes mints, divided
  5. 3 ounce cream cheese, softened
  6. 1 (14 ounce) sweetened condensed milk
  7. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  8. 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or mint chocolate chips (I used Hershey's)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine and stir together the crushed cookie crumbs with the melted butter. Pat down crumb mixture into the bottom of a sprayed and lined with aluminum foil 9 inch by 9 inch baking dish. Bake for 7 minutes.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, cream together the softened cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla. Set aside.
  4. When the crust is done partially baking, lay about 28 (depending upon if you use the 9x9 baking dish) of Andes mints on top. (Be sure to save some to break apart on the very top layer.) Pour over the cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle the chocolate chips, the broken cookie pieces, and the rest of the mints on top.
  5. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Allow to completely cool and set up before cutting.
  6. Enjoy!
Notes

      ^ wow, the joys of commenting on a phone :/ anyways! I was trying to say Gloria, I’ve read this post three whole times now and I still can’t wrap my mind around all the layers! Chocolate, Oreo, mint, cheesecake – mind.blown. I think I’ll have to make myself a pan so I can get the “full experience” 😉 I’ll be using that mint extract in the cheesecake layer for sure!

        Mary Frances, you are too funny! (You’ll definitely love these!) It always takes me so much longer to comment from my phone and then there’s the auto wording it wants to say instead of what my brain wants to say!

      Thanks, Chelsea! But, you wouldn’t believe it… it’s not marble, it’s the underside of a pan. Pretty tricky, right?! Hope you’re enjoying your Wednesday! 😉
