Creme de menthe marshmallow oreo squares. Or as my family calls it, Irish Delight. I have NO idea why. This frozen treat, with an ice-cream-like marshmallow and whipped cream filling is a minty green, but I’m grasping at straws to come up with an Irish connection. What I can say definitively is how yummy and quintessentially Christmas these squares are.
And speaking of Christmas, I feel like time is running out. Only five days left until the joy and chaos of celebrating and feasting and hosting and overindulging. Five days, which is why I feel like I must get this recipe to you NOW (like literally this second), just in time for your Christmas baking sprint. BECAUSE, these creme de menthe marshmallow oreo squares check off all the important Christmas dessert boxes.
- Pretty and festive with a seriously delish creme de menthe marshmallow filling.
- Prefect for making ahead of time. Make and stash in your freezer until just before serving.
- No bake, no stress, and five ingredients.
- 39 crushed oreos constitute the base and topping.
And that’s where I leave you, because if you’re not sold after the 39 oreos, nothing’s going to sell it.
These gorgeous oreo-custed squares taste like mint ice cream sandwiches, but WAY better, in my completely biased opinion.
My mum has been making this recipe forever and I have very fond childhood memories of sneaking into the deep freeze with a spoon and a mission.
