Oreo-Peppermint Jello Salad

Oreo-Peppermint Jello Salad

1 package (6 ounces) lime-flavored gelatin
2 cups boiling water
2 cups cold water
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
4 ounces Cool Whip
8 finely crushed Oreo cookies

Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add cold water and peppermint extract. Chill until slightly thickened, about 1-1/2 hours. Measure 1-3/4 cups gelatin; pour into a 5x9 inch loaf pan and chill about 5 minutes. Blend Cool Whip into the remaining gelatin. Carefully spoon 1/3 of the creamy mixture into the pan. Sprinkle with half the cookie crumbs. Repeat these 2 layers and spoon the remaining creamy mixture on top. Chill until firm, about 4 hours. Unmold and garnish with additional whipped topping and cookie crumbs, if desired.

Makes 6 cups or 10 to 12 individual servings.

Another ‘Oh MY’ recipe from this site. I’m going to file it under SALADS (which is what it is)…and not feel guilty when indulging in it. After all…it IS a salad! Thanks!
