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!
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.
STEP 2: Add ground Oreos to mixing bowl containing 2 cups Cool Whip.
STEP 3: Fold ground Oreos into Cool Whip until well combined– this is the frosting.
STEP 4: Place silicon baking sheet over a cookie pan.
STEP 5: Place four ice cream sandwiches together in center of baking sheet. Spread a layer of frosting on top.
STEP 6: Repeat with two more layers of ice cream sandwiches.
STEP 7: Frost the top and sides of cake.
STEP 8: Allow cake to set in freezer for 1-2 hours. Remove from baking sheet. Slice and enjoy!
