Roughly break up all of the Oreos into a large bowl. Leave a couple crushed Oreos to sprinkle over the top at the end.

Completely melt the butter and pour over Oreos. Mix until all are covered with butter.

Pour the mixture into the foil pan. Spread evenly.

Bring the mint chocolate ice cream to room temperature.

Either cut the ice cream into blocks or scoop ice cream over the Oreos and smooth out evenly. Freeze for 20-30 minutes. Gradually warm the hot fudge in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds or in a double boiler until easily pourable. Take the ice cream out of the freezer and pour the hot fudge over the ice cream. Freeze again for another 20-30 minutes. Remove the ice cream from the freezer and spread the cool whip topping over the hot fudge. Sprinkle over remaining crushed Oreos with any additional toppings that are desired.
