No Bake Mint Chocolate Chip Shamrock Cheesecake - an easy mint green dessert for St. Patrick’s Day! The mint chocolate chip marshmallows are back :)

I raved about them yesterday. I know, you might be thinking.. “Beth, you are crazy, making your own homemade shamrock marshmallows!”

Well, I think you’re crazy for not wanting to try them. If we were neighbors I would make you a batch and we could sip on hot cocoa munching marshmallows together. Actually, I would probably talk you into helping me shovel the 10 inches of snow that fell overnight in exchange for marshmallows, of course.

No Bake Mint Chocolate Chip Shamrock Cheesecake - an easy mint green dessert for St. Patrick’s Day! No Bake Mint Chocolate Chip Shamrock Cheesecake - an easy mint green dessert for St. Patrick’s Day! Today’s post is supposed to be about the no bake mint chocolate chip cheesecake. And if you are a no bake cheesecake fan like me, then you’ll love it.

This recipe is especially great for St. Patrick’s Day because it’s a super quick green dessert that you can whip up in under one hour.

Of course you don’t have to top your mint chocolate chip cheesecakes with mint chocolate chip marshmallows, but I couldn’t resist. The only thing that’s better than mint chocolate chip is more mint chocolate chip. Think about eating a mint chocolate brownie with a scoop of mint chip ice cream, that’s a good combo, so I know this is a good combo :)

No Bake Mint Chocolate Chip Shamrock Cheesecake

Yield: 4 cheesecakes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 10 oreos, pulsed into crumbs
  • 12 oz cream cheese (1 and 1/2 packages) softened
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1/2 cup cool whip
  • green food coloring, to get desired green color
  • mini chocolate chips, for topping
  • cool whip, for topping
  • optional: mint chocolate chip shamrock marshmallows

Directions:

  1. Using a blender or small food processor, pulse 10 oreos until you have crumbs. Evenly divide the crumbs among 4 glasses.
  2. In a mixing bow, combine the softened cream cheese and sugar. Beat until fluffy with an electric mixer. Add in the peppermint extract and cool whip, mix again until combined. Add in a few drops of green food coloring and mix using a spatula, not the mixer.
  3. Refrigerate the cheesecake mixture in the mixing bowl for 30 minutes.
  4. After 30 minutes, spoon or pipe using a piping bag the cheesecake mixture into the glasses.
  5. Top each cheesecake with mini chocolate chips.

    So yeah, I’m going to need to make these. Complete with the mint chocolate marshmallows. Really, is there any better combination than mint and chocolate? Then add cheesecake in there and it’s PERFECT.

    • Beth @ The First Year — March 3, 2015 at 8:46 pm

      Oh gosh, I think I love you Mary! I’m so glad you don’t think it’s over the top!

    So cute!!! Funny story, I bought Oreos for the first time in I swear 5 years to make a chocolate cheesecake and my daughter and I gobbled up the entire bag… Guess I have an excuse to go out and buy another bag now!

    • Beth @ The First Year — March 4, 2015 at 5:42 pm

      Dangerous things.. I know Kacey!!

  15. Amy @ A Healthy Life For Me — March 5, 2015 at 6:55 am

    Another recipe that will make them swoon. Topping it off with those adorable marshmellows, just sends an already amazing dessert over the top! Love it!

    • Beth @ The First Year — March 6, 2015 at 7:16 am

      And over the top is what I like :) :)

  16. Amanda — March 11, 2016 at 12:51 pm

    These look delicious….how big are they? I need to make a St. Patricks day dessert for about 60 people and thought these would be perfect in mini cups but am trying to figure out exactly how many times I would need to multiply this recipe.

    • Beth @ The First Year — March 12, 2016 at 7:53 am

      Hi Amanda! This recipe made four 5.3 oz bowls of cheesecake! You could use smaller cups and put less cheesecake in each to try to stretch the recipe, but I think you’d need to make quite a few batches to feed 60 people!
