Maybe you’ve died and gone to heaven, or maybe you just have a little luck coming your way. It is St. Patrick’s Day, after all. This St. Paddy’s layered cake made with a minty Oreo cookie crust takes the traditional shamrock shake to a whole new level.
I'm officially declaring that this is my new favorite dessert. It's not only incredibly delicious, but I feel like such a fancy dessert maker when I make it. There's just something magical that happens when minty flavors collide with chocolate. This shamrock shake cake definitely has minty chocolate magical powers.
A springform cake pan is key when making this heavenly dessert.
Smash up the cookies using a rolling pin or your smasher of choice. Just be sure to seal up the Ziploc bag tight before starting.
Add the crushed cookies evenly to the bottom of the pan while pushing down on them all the way to the sides of the pan.
It's time to make the shamrock shake. Add all the ingredients to the blender, and cover with the lid.
Then blend away.
Before pouring the shake into the pan, make sure to put a plate under the pan.
Some of the shake will leak out of the bottom of the pan, so work fast to evenly spread the shamrock shake on top of the cookie crust. Then put it in the freezer along with the plate for about 2 hours.
Break up the cake into small pieces.
Remove the pan from the freezer, and top with the cake. Push the cake down with your fingers to evenly pack it in all the way to the sides of the pan. Put the pan back in the freezer for about 2 more hours.
Remove the cake from the freezer, and top with chocolate syrup.
Spread the syrup evenly on top of the cake.
Remove the springform pan from the cake.
Top with the whipped topping, and garnish with cookies and candy sprinkles.
Cut and serve, or store in the freezer. Remove the cake from the freezer about 15 minutes before serving.
