  • 1 box chocolate cake mix plus ingredients on back
  • 6.6 oz vanilla pudding mix or white chocolate pudding mix
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2-3 drops creme de menthe syrup or candy flavoring
  • food coloring
  • 1 small container cool whip divided
  • 1 package oreos
  • 15 andes mints chopped


  1. Begin by making your chocolate cake according to instructions on back in a 9x13 pan.

  2. Once done, let cool completely and then cut into 1 - 1½ inch squares. Set aside.
  3. Make mint filling by whisking together pudding mix and milk in a large bowl. Once combined, add creme de menthe syrup/flavoring, food coloring and all but 1 cup of your cool whip. Mix well. Set aside.
  4. Add Oreos to a gallon bag and crush. I use a rolling pin to break them up.
  5. Begin layering your dessert by adding half your cake squares to the bottom. Then add half of your mint filling along with half of the crushed oreos.
  6. Add the rest of your cake squares, mint filling then Oreos.
  7. Top with the last of your cool whip and chopped Andes.
  8. Cool for at least 1-2 hours before serving.
  9. ENJOY!
