  • 1
    Crust: Preheat oven to 350º F. Crush cookies into fine crumbs and mix together with melted butter. Press into a 9 x 13-inch pan. Bake for 15 minutes, until fragrant. Allow to cool completely.
  • 2
    Chocolate Ganache: Combine heavy whipping cream and chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 30-second increments, stirring after each, until melted. Pour over cooled cookie crust. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, until the chocolate ganache firms up.
  • 3
    Cream Cheese Fluff: Beat cream cheese using an electric mixer until creamy and smooth. Add marshmallow fluff and beat to combine. Add whipped topping and milk and beat until light and fluffy.
  • 4
    Crème de Menthe Pudding: Combine pudding mix and milk in a large mixing bowl. Beat using an electric mixer on medium-high speed until well mixed and thickened. Add crème de menthe and green food coloring and beat until well incorporated.
  • 5
    Layer Lasagna: Spread half of the cream cheese fluff over the chocolate ganache layer. Top with half of the crème de menthe pudding. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • 6
    Spread the remaining cream cheese fluff over top, then add the remaining crème de menthe pudding. Spread 8 ounces of whipped topping over top of pudding and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  • 7
    Crème de Menthe Glaze: Combine crème de menthe and light corn syrup in a small saucepan. Set over medium heat and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  • 8
    Reduce heat to medium low and allow to simmer until thickened to a glaze-like consistency, 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat, carefully pour into a heat-proof glass measuring cup. Allow to cool.

More About This Recipe
  • If you’re a big fan of shamrock shakes, you are going to love this fun spin on the traditional sweet treat. Layers of chocolate cookie crust, cheesecake fluff, crème de menthe pudding, and whipped topping are decorated with bright green crème de menthe glaze and topped with some festive Lucky Charms® marshmallows. This is the perfect dessert to serve for St. Patrick's Day or whenever you want a brightly-colored, minty treat. If you’re partying with adults, you can make this dessert boozy by using crème de menthe liqueur. If kids are going to be among the party guests, then be sure to use crème de menthe syrup in place of the liqueur. Both will give your dessert a wonderfully minty flavor and a bright green color. If you want to add a festive touch to the top of the dessert, grab a box of Lucky Charms® and pick out some of the marshmallows to sprinkle over top. Just before your party guests arrive, pull the dessert from the refrigerator and grab the marshmallows and green crème de menthe glaze. Drizzle the green glaze over top and sprinkle on the Lucky Charms® marshmallows. Use a sharp knife to cut the cheesecake lasagna into 15 pieces and serve.
