No Bake Mint Chocolate Chip Shamrock Cheesecake
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.
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
- 10 oreos, pulsed into crumbs
- 12 oz cream cheese, 1 and 1/2 packages softened
- 3 tbsp sugar
- ¼ tsp peppermint extract
- ½ cup cool whip
- green food coloring, to get desired green color
- mini chocolate chips, for topping
- cool whip, for topping
- [ mint chocolate chip shamrock marshmallows], optional
- Using a blender or small food processor, pulse 10 oreos until you have crumbs. Evenly divide the crumbs among 4 glasses.
- 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.
- Refrigerate the cheesecake mixture in the mixing bowl for 30 minutes.
- After 30 minutes, spoon or pipe using a piping bag the cheesecake mixture into the glasses.
- Top each cheesecake with mini chocolate chips.
- Garnish with a dollop of cool whip and a mint chocolate chip shamrock marshmallow if desired.
Another home run recipe from Beth!!! Seriously, you’re killing me with all the cuteness :)
You’re killing me with your cuteness – I’m still thinking about the basketball cheese ball :)

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.
Oh gosh, I think I love you Mary! I’m so glad you don’t think it’s over the top!
Eating a dozen of these at once is ok, right? ;)
Yes, because they are thin :) :)
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!
Dangerous things.. I know Kacey!!
Beth, these cheesecakes are so cute and they look delicious! I love anything mint chocolate and I’m thinking I need to make these for our St. Patrick’s Day party…oh and the marshmallows are the BEST! :)
You have a St. Patrick’s Day party?!!!?!
Holy Hannah!! I need these in my life asap! Delicious and cute I’m in!
Wooohoo!! Another friend to share cheesecake with!
These are super cute! They look so delicious too! I love mint and chocolate :)
Stephanie, I love that combo too!
These are so fun! You can’t go wrong with no-bake cheesecake!
You always make the coolest and sweetest treats Beth! Love these gorgeous cheesecakes – and that fluffy marshmallow! WANT!
Jessica, you are so sweet!!
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!
And over the top is what I like :) :)
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.
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!
Just wondering where I can get those little containers? They are just perfect!
