Ice Cream Oreo Cookie Dessert



Ice Cream Oreo Cookie Dessert

For Father's Day we prepare my husband's favorite dessert.  My children call it "Ice Cream Oreo Cake," but there isn't any "cake" in it.

This delicious dessert is not only perfect for a summer day, but is easy to prepare with no oven required.

 **Warning - While this is a yummy dessert it will not qualify as "health food."**



Ingredients:

  •  32 Oreo cookies
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • Chocolate Syrup
  • Caramel Syrup
  • 1/2 Gallon Ice Cream in a rectangular container (I used mint chocolate chip because it is my husband's favorite, but personally prefer caramel praline or vanilla)
  • Whipped Topping (like Cool Whip)
  • 9X13 Casserole Dish (or pan) with lid - the higher the sides the better


 Steps:

1. Take 3/4 cup butter out of fridge and set it aside.

2. Place container of whipped topping in refrigerator.

3. Crush cookies till fairly consistent texture. 
I blend small amounts at a time in the dry container of my Vitamixer
(you could crush them with a potato masher or  rolling pin)
What Crushed Oreos looks like (not complete crumbs)

4. Remove 1/2 cup and 1/3 cup of crushed cookies and set aside.

5.  Cut butter into small pieces and blend into bowl of crushed cookies until butter is all broken up and texture is fairly consistent.

Step 5 - Butter Mixed into Oreos

6. Place ice cream on a cutting board.  Peel away the paper/container surrounding the ice cream, so you just have a rectangle of ice cream.

7. Spread cookie/butter mixture into pan/casserole dish and push it down with back of spoon till condensed and even.

8. Carefully cut long thin slices of ice cream.
Step 8 - Cut Thin Slices of Ice Cream

9.  Place the ice cream slices on the Oreo mixture in your casserole dish/pan.  Piece them together over your cookies.  If your slices are thin you should have about 1/2 of the ice cream left over after this layer.  Leave remaining slices for step eleven.
Step 9 - Ice Cream Slices pieced together over Oreo Mixture

10. Drizzle chocolate syrup and caramel syrup over top of ice cream in pan.
Step  10 - Chocolate and Caramel Syrup Drizzled over Ice Cream

11. Sprinkle 1/2 cup from your reserve of crushed cookies into the pan (you should still have 1/3 cup of crushed cookies left in your reserve)

Step 11 - 1/2 cup of Reserved plain Crushed Oreos sprinkled over Drizzled Ice Cream

12. Place remaining ice cream slices in pan, piecing them together over Oreos.

13. Drizzle chocolate syrup and caramel syrup over top of ice cream in pan.
What your Dessert looks like BEFORE you freeze it for 1/2 hour

14. Cover with lid and place in freezer for 1/2 hour.

15.  After 1/2 hour (or longer) spread whipped topping over top of dessert
I will admit that I sometimes get busy and have mine sit in the freezer for hours, but you just need to make sure that it freezes enough that the chocolate and caramel syrup will not smear all over when you spread the whipped topping

16. Sprinkle with remaining 1/3 cup of crushed cookie
Completed Dessert - just freeze till ready to serve

17. Cover casserole dish/pan with lid and place back in freezer (freeze till ready to eat)

18. Do the Happy Dance!  You have just made a delicious ice cream cookie dessert


I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does!

*If the dessert is in the freezer a long time before you will be eating it you will want to remove it and place in the fridge a little bit before serving (just make sure it doesn't melt).

  4. Wow looks amazing. Not sure I can pull if off though. I may eat all of the contents before I finish preparing it.

    1. LOL Not eating the contents before it is finished is probably the most difficult part of this dessert. (especially if you have children helping - the OREOs and chocolate syrup tend to disappear fast) Thank you for reading Ramblings of Mama and I hope you at least enjoy "making" the dessert even if you don't have an end product!
