Oreo Ice Cream Cake Recipe

Oreo cookies are America’s favorite cookies, right?  Well, I honestly don’t know if that’s a true statement, but at my house Oreo cookies are on the top of my husband’s list of favorites.

My favorite, on the other hand, is ice cream of any flavor.  I love ice cream. Like really love it.

I love it so much that I can’t keep it on hand or else I’m digging a spoon right into the gallon of ice cream, secretly, of course, when nobody is watching.

That’s why this Cookies and Cream Ice Cream with only 3 ingredients is so magical. It ticks both boxes.

I originally ate this Oreo Ice Cream Cake growing up.  A good friend of mine shared  a summer birthday like mine, and her mom always made this as her birthday cake.

Recently, someone re-shared the recipe with me after discussing our love for Oreos, specifically Oreo Fluff.  It’s funny how recipes resurface over the years.

3 Ingredient Oreo Ice Cream Ingredients

Vanilla Ice Cream, softened

Cool Whip or Whipped Topping, thawed

Oreo Cookies or Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

How to Make 3 Ingredient Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Cake Recipe:

Soften vanilla ice cream.  Break up Oreo cookies into large chunks. With a mixer, combine softened vanilla ice cream, Cool Whip (thawed), and chocolate sandwich cookie chunks.  Blend until all ingredients are incorporated. Pour into a 13 x 9 inch baking dish.  Put in the freezer and allow to refreeze.  To serve, let soften a little, and slice into pieces.  If desired, top with whipped cream, chocolate syrup and additional cookie chunks.

Notes About No-Bake Frozen Oreo Dessert:

  • Be sure to let the vanilla ice cream soften a bit before mixing together the cookies and cream ice cream.  You don’t want it completely soupy, just softened enough it will combine with the mixer.
  • To easily break the Oreo Cookies into chunks, add the cookies to the bowl of the stand mixer, and turn on to low. Or, go old school by adding the cookies to a resealable bag, and whacking them with a rolling pin or mallet.
  • For larger, visible chunks of cookies in this Oreo Ice Cream cake, don’t break up the cookies as much.
  • I prefer to use regular Oreo Cookies.  Double Stuffed would work but the ratio of cookies won’t be as visible in the Oreo Ice Cream Cake.
  • Be sure to give the cookies and cream ice cream cake enough time to re-freeze in the freezer.   I recommend 2-3 hours.
  • If you want to fancy up this Oreo Ice Cream cake, drizzle the top with chocolate syrup, sprinkle crushed Oreo cookies over top and add a little whipped cream.

What’s the easiest way to cut an ice cream cake?

This is a two-step process. First off, remove the ice cream cake from the freezer and let set at room temperature for a few minutes to lightly thaw. Secondly, use a sharp knife that has been dipped in hot water.  The hot water will help cut through the frozen ice cream cake to make beautiful slices.

Is Oreo Ice Cream and Cookies and Cream the same?

Yes!  Cookies and Cream is another name for Oreo Ice Cream.  Cookies and Cream ice cream contains chunks and bits of chocolate sandwich cookies, like Oreos. You could really consider this dessert an Oreo ice cream without condensed milk.
