Ingredients

  • 15 oreo cookies
  • 10 keebler grasshopper mint fudge cookies
  • 5 tbsp butter melted
  • 24 oz cream cheese softened
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp creme de menthe
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1/2 tsp green food coloring
  • 2 cups miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips divided
  • 1 tsp flour
  • 1 tbsp milk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. In a food processor, combine the Oreo and Grasshopper cookies. Pulse until fine crumbs form. Add the butter and pulse a few times, just until crumbs become moistened. Press the cookie crumbs into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Set aside
  • In a large bowl, using a hand-held mixer, beat the cream cheese on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the sweetened condensed milk and mix until just incorporated. Add the eggs and mix until incorporated. Add the Crème de Menthe, peppermint extract and food coloring and mix well.
  • In a small bowl, combine 1 cup of the chocolate chips with the flour. Stir to coat. Add the flour-coated chocolate chips to the cream cheese mixture and stir. Pour the mixture into the prepared springform pan. Top with ½ cup of chocolate chips. Place the pan on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for one hour.
  • Remove pan from oven and immediately use a knife to separate the cheesecake from the edge of the pan all the way around. Let cool. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Just before serving, in a small bowl, combine ½ cup of the chocolate chips with the milk and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir until smooth. Microwave in 15-second intervals, if needed, stirring after each interval, until smooth. Drizzle the melted chocolate over each slice of cheesecake, and serve.
