Fluffy Mint Dessert

Comment on this recipe

When we're so busy, this is great because it can be made ahead of time. The cool minty flavor is perfect for Christmas or the hot summer months.

Ingredients

1 package (1 pound) cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies (Oreo type) about 40, crushed
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 cartons (12 ounces each) frozen whipped topping, thawed
2 cups pastel minature marshmallows
1-1/3 cups small pastel mints ( 5-1/2 ounces)

Instructions

Reserve 1/4 cup crushed cookies for garnish. Combine remaining cookies with butter and press into an ungreased 13x9x2-inch baking dish. Fold together whipped topping, marshmallows and mints. Pour over crust. Garnish with reserved cookies. Cover and refrigerate for one to two days before serving. Makes 18 to 20 servings.
