This was wonderful! I'm not even the biggest fan of mint desserts but will definitely make this again. I used 25 mint cream oreos and 15 regular. I took 12 of the mint creams off of the cookies and froze them on wax paper. After the whole thing was set, I took off the sides of the spingform pan and stuck on the cream circles around the outside. I put it back in the freezer for about 2 hours and it looked as good as it tasted!
Warning: this recipe "looks" easy, but it's really time consuming. Nevertheless, it turned out sooo good. Was a hit! I prepared it in a 9x13 pan.
I made this for a birthday, and it was a huge hit! Just don't let the ice cream soften too much, because it won't firm up. I'm going to make this for a baby shower this weekend.
