Oreo Mint Dessert

I was looking through my favorite recipes and found this one and just had to chuckle. This was a popular dessert in the 70’s. I think every shower or ladies event that I went to served this dessert at one time or other. Sometimes it is just fun to make these old classic desserts, it can bring back some really good memories. Hey, and the men love this one, too.


  • 1 package Oreo cookies
  • 1 cup small pillow mints (you know, the classic, little pastel colored after dinner mints)
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1 pt cream, whipped (no added sugar needed)

Crush the Oreo’s and spread 1/2 of them evenly in a 9×13 inch pan. Gently stir the mints and marshmallows into the whipped cream. Spread on top of Oreo’s. Top with the remaining Oreo’s.
Chill 24 to 48 hours before serving. Top each piece of dessert with a mint, if desired
