13 oz. bag small peppermint chocolate patties

Base:
Place Oreo's in food processor and process to coarse texture. Add peppermint patties and process to coarse texture. Coat a 10 in. springform pan with cooking spray, add cookie mixture and press down gently to coat bottom and up 1/2 in. on the sides. By spoonfuls, add ice cream.
