Easy 3-Ingredient Cookies & Cream Ice Cream Cake

Though our family generally has very healthy eating habits, every now and then we just have to splurge.  Hubby made a cookies and cream ice cream cake for a party a while back and it didn’t last long!  I decided to prepare one myself today and share the steps because this dessert is so easy, fast, and delicious that I know many of you would enjoy.  And if I can make it anyone can!

Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Cake

You only need three ingredients:

  • 12 ice cream sandwiches
  • 1/2 regular size pack of Oreos
  • 2 cups Cool Whip

**BONUS: This recipe can be made gluten free and/or dairy free by substituting the type of “ice cream” sandwiches and cookies used.  

STEP 1: Chop 1/2 pack of Oreos in food processor until finely ground.
