- 24 oz cream cheese (can be 1/3 less fat type if desired)
- 1 tbsp mint extract
-1/2 cup sugar
- 1 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream
- 15 Oreos, plus 5 more for the top
-1/4 cup butter

Preheat oven for 350 degrees
separate Oreos, placing the cookies in a Ziploc bag and the cream filling in a bowl. Crush up the cookies and add to a bowl. Melt the butter and mix with the crushed cookies. Press into a 9x13 inch sheet pan and bake it for 7-10 minutes.
While the crust is baking, combine sugar, green food coloring, mint extract, and cream cheese in a mixing bowl and beat on medium-high for 3 minutes. Set aside. In a separate bowl whip the cream until stiff peaks form. fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.
Once the crust is cooled, spread the filling evenly over the crust. break up the 5 topping Oreos into 1/4 inch pieces and divide evenly sprinkled over the filling. Cover and set in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight.
