What you do end up with is a smooth, silky, light and velvety-textured cheesecake filling every time.

This has all the creaminess you’d expect from whipping cream cheese and powdered sugar together.   Then a few drops of peppermint and vanilla are added along with a few drops of green food coloring.

SIMPLE St Paddy's Mint Cheesecake & Oreo Cups - no bake dessert using simple ingredients for a festive St Patricks day dessert #stpatricksdessert #stpatrickgreenfood #greenfood #partyfood #stpatrickrecipes #simplepartyfoodA regular cheesecake uses eggs and well, bakes in the oven.   A no bake cheesecake relies on heavy cream that has been whipped to hold it together and give it the creamy texture of cheesecake.  Just be sure to set some aside to garnish when you are ready to serve.

Crumbled Oreo cookie crumbs and cheesecake are layered in individual glasses and topped off an Oreo cookie for good measure. But don’t stop there!  Thin Mint cookies, mint flavored Oreos or Andes mints are also great toppers.
