Best of all you can customize the color of the white mint layers! Why not try chocolate shavings and fresh mint leaves on top?

Beat the second amount of whipping cream to form stiff peaks then fold this into the mixture. If you want to color this layer add the food coloring. (We prefer gel coloring but liquid will work too.) Remove the pie from the fridge and spread a thin layer of the mint on top of the chocolate layer.

Food coloring added to the mixture for the mint layer

Put the 1/2 cup of cream in a small mixing bowl and add the 1/2 tsp of peppermint extract. Dunk the outsides of the Oreo cookies in the mix a let them soak the cream in for a few seconds. Allow the cream to drip off each cookie and place them over the mint layer until the pie is covered. You might need to break some of the cookies to make them all fit. Cover the pie as best you can.

Spread on another chocolate layer and chill the pie again for about 10 minutes. Add another mint layer. Crush up the remaining Oreo outsides and finish the pie by topping it off with the crumbs.

Cover the pie and chill it overnight. The Oreo layer in the middle will soak up the cream and soften. The texture of the pie will be similar to a dense mousse. Make sure you let this pie chill long enough or the layers will be too soft and can run together. This is thee perfect dessert to make a day or two ahead of time. it will be great in the fridge for up to a week.

Serves 8 large slices.
