Easy Oreo Mint Chip Ice Cream Cake

Oreo Mint Chip Ice Cream Cake

I love the idea of serving ice cream in fun ways. And this one is just that.

A fun and easy no-bake mint chip ice cream cake!

Yes and yum!

Mint Oreos

And it doesn’t hurt that it’s stuffed with mint Oreo cookies either.

They’re in the crust, in the “cake” and on top too.

Want to make one?

Chopped Oreos

Okay good! First chop up some of the cookies for the crust.

Making Ice Cream Cake

Mix the crumbs with melted butter and then press into the bottom of a 7-inch springform pan. But first cover the bottom section of the pan with plastic wrap before securing the ring on top. It will make it easier to transfer the cake to a plate when you’re ready to serve.

Mint Chip Ice Cream

Time for the ice cream. You can use your favorite flavor. I’m going with mint chip today.

It’s not my fave…my first choice would be chocolate of course… but it’s a fun flavor for St. Patrick’s Day.

Ice cream layer

Spread a layer of ice cream on top of the cookie crust base.

Oreo Layer

Add in some oreos and then layer on more ice cream almost to the top edge of the pan.

Then layer on some whipped topping and place in the freezer for at least three hours.

Note: Next time I would break all the cookies into pieces to make the cake easier to cut.

When you are ready to serve, unclasp the springform ring to slide it off from around the cake.

Then just separate the plastic wrap from the base to serve.

Easy Oreo Mint Chip Ice Cream Cake
Yield: One 7-inch ice cream cake

Easy Oreo Mint Chip Ice Cream Cake

Prep Time 40 minutes
Additional Time 3 hours
Total Time 3 hours 40 minutes


  • 30 Mint Oreos (1 package)
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • Plastic Wrap
  • 7-inch Springform Pan
  • 1.5 quart container Mint Chip Ice Cream, softened
  • 8 oz. container Cool Whip Topping, thawed


  1. Crush 16 cookies in a food processor. Add melted butter and combine.
  2. Cover bottom section of springform pan with plastic wrap and secure ring in place.
  3. Press cookie crumbs into the bottom of prepared pan. Use the bottom of a glass to press the crumbs firmly in place.
  4. Chill pan in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove and spread a layer of mint chip ice cream over the cookie base. Break seven Oreos into small pieces and place on top. Then layer more ice cream almost to the top edge of the pan. You'll have a little bit left over that you can enjoy straight from the box.
  6. Spread on a layer of whipped topping and place in the freezer for 3 hours. It helps to place your cake and serving plates in the freezer as well to keep the cake cold longer once you remove from the freezer.
  7. When ready to serve, unclasp the ring to remove it from the cake. Separate plastic wrap from bottom of cake and place on serving plate. Top with remaining 7 oreos. Cut into slices and serve right away. You can run a knife under hot water and wipe it dry to cut through the cake easily.

  1. 2 questions:
    1. Has anyone tried putting Andes crème de menthe candies on top and in the center where Oreo cookies go? I want to try that. I’ll still make the mint Oreo crust. This is going to be a friends birthday cake! She loves mint chip!

    2. Will the cake keep 2 days in the freezer?

  2. My son requests this every year for his birthday! He’s 13 today!

  3. Made this for Christmas and it turned out great. I replaced with whipped cream with chocolate ganache for a bit more richness. Nice presentation and easy to throw together.

  4. Can you please explain again what to do with the plastic wrap. I am not understanding where it goes !

  5. Nice cake

  13. I still haven’t made this yet and was wondering if anyone had recommendations for the ice cream? I only found mint chip Dreyers. everything else was mint cookie.

  14. Please, I have a question to this recipe. If I want to use a regular whipped cream as a topping, can I get it into the freezer just like that? Or is a whipped cream in a freezer bad idea? Thank You ! :)

  33. Looks amazing and perfect for St.Patrick’s Day!

  34. I’ll give this a try with Pamela’s Products Extreme Chocolates Bites as they are gluten free and I’ll have to make a homemade filling for them. Your final result looks stunning. Mine probably will not turn out as beautiful, but it’s tasty!

  35. I made this yesterday because my daughter told me just the night before how chocolate chip mint is her favorite flavor of ice cream and then I saw this recipe! I picked up a springform pan and the ingredients at the store and whipped it out in no time flat. It looked so beautiful and tasted so good. I can’t wait to try other versions: coffee, chocolate, peanut butter! Yum, perfect for guests too. Thanks!

  36. Yum! I can’t wait to try this.

  37. This reminds of a chocolatey Vienetta, it would be a showstopping end to a big family dinner, it’s going on my to “bake” list for sure!

  38. Oh yeah – gotta make this!

  39. This looks incredible! One of my favorite things on earth in mint chocolate chip ice cream!!!

  40. This looks sooo yummy! Some days I would ruin my diet just to indulge in things like this and regret it later haha!
    You truly are very creative :)

  41. Looks so good!

  42. My older sister would go nuts over this cake!

    P.S. So would I!

  43. What can I say, but perfect! Mint and chocolate are one of my favorite flavor combos. This is even green for St. Patrick’s Day … I served many scoops of mint & chip ice cream over the years and called it St. Patrick’s Day dessert!

  44. And p.s. they actually sell a mint oreo ice cream too which is what we usually use! :)

  45. Love this! I do something like this in an oreo cookie pre-made pie crust for my daughter’s birthday every year. I will try it this way this year though! The only thing I would suggest that I usually do is to add a layer of hot fudge on top of the cookie bottom before the ice cream. It’s AMAZING!!

  46. Wow this looks so delicious… mint chocolate chip ice cream is a favourite of mine. It would make a nice summer birthday cake.

  47. This looks sooo fantastic. I <3 mint. Can't wait to try this.

  48. I absolutely love ice-cream cakes! So yummy!

  49. This looks amazing! And so easy to do too.

  50. I have memories of having my mom make this every birthday! Last year I tried a Reese chocolate-peanut butter version- delicious! However I find that if you just cover the base of the pan with whole oreos it works fine. We add oreo crumbs on top instead of Cool Whip.

  51. This cake looks perfect!! So yummy!

  52. I LOVE how much kids would adore and be impressed with us when it’s so easy! Perfect for summer

  53. My son is obsessed with mint anything! This is perfect for him! Thank you!
