Recipe: Mint Moose Tracks Cake

Dust off the cake plate, because this dessert is delicious and makes a beautiful-looking cake, worthy of displaying as the centerpiece of your dinner table!

 

Makes 8 servings

 

Ingredients

⅓ cup butter, melted

¼ cup sugar

25 chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreo), finely crushed

One “half-gallon” sized container of Mint Moose Tracks

8oz container of frozen whipped topping (such as Cool Whip)

1 cup of chocolate mint candies (such as an Andes Creme de Menthe Snap Bar)

 

Directions

  1. It’s important to make sure the chocolate sandwich cookies are finely crushed. Put them in a food processor or a blender to get a fine crumb. If you don’t have that, put them into a gallon bag and crush with the back of a spoon.
  2. In a medium bowl combine melted butter and sugar. Stir in crushed cookie crumbs and toss to mix well. Press mixture evenly on the bottom and 1 inch up the sides of an 8 or 9-inch springform pan.
  3. Remove Mint Moose Tracks from the freezer and allow it to soften for a few minutes. Once spreadable, scoop it into the springform pan and press in with a fair amount of pressure to make sure there aren’t any gaps. Leave about ½” at the top of the springform pan to allow for the whipped topping layer.
  4. Place the springform pan in the freezer, covered, for at least 2 hours until frozen solid.
  5. When you’re ready to serve, remove whipped topping from the freezer and allow to soften until easily spreadable.
  6. Make chocolate curls and/or crush up some of the chocolate mint candies. We opted for both. If you’re unfamiliar with chocolate curls – all you need to do is run a peeler alongside the candy bar and it will make beautiful curls! It’s especially visually appealing with chocolate creme de menthe candy bar because you get a nice green stripe in the middle.
  7. Now remove the springform pan from the freezer. Spread a layer of whipped topping over the Mint Moose Tracks.
  8. Sprinkle generously with the chocolate mint candies.
  9. Serve immediately or freeze until you’re ready to serve.
