This delightful dessert combines the rich and chocolatey flavor of Oreo cookies with the creamy and refreshing taste of ice cream.

It’s the perfect treat for any occasion, whether it’s a birthday party, a summer barbecue, or just a craving for something sweet.

Ingredients You Will Need:

To make this heavenly dessert, you will need a few simple ingredients.

First, you will need a package of Oreo cookies. You can use regular Oreo cookies or even try different flavors like golden or mint.

Next, you will need some ice cream – preferably cookies and cream ice cream, but feel free to experiment with different flavors to suit your taste.

Lastly, you will need some whipped cream to add a light and fluffy touch to your cake along with some chocolate syrup.

How To Make Oreo Ice Cream Cake:

To begin, start by crushing the Oreo cookies. You can either use a food processor or place the cookies in a sealed plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin. Keep one flat of cookies intact to use as a garnish later.

Once crushed press the crumbs into the bottom of a springform pan.

In the meantime, take the ice cream out of the freezer and let it soften slightly. Once soft, spread a layer of ice cream over the Oreo crust.

layer the Oreo crumbs

You can use either one flavor of ice cream or get creative and mix different flavors together. For a cookies and cream theme, use cookies and cream ice cream. If you prefer a more classic combination, reach for vanilla ice cream. You can also do one layer of cookies and cream and one layer of vanilla.

Smooth the top of the ice cream layer using the back of a warm spoon to create a nice even layer.

Then add another layer of crushed Oreos. Sprinkle a generous amount of crushed Oreos over the ice cream, making sure to cover the entire surface. Gently press the cookies into the ice cream to ensure they adhere. This layer will add a wonderful crunch and texture to the center of your cake.

Next, add another layer of ice cream on top of the crushed Oreos, just like you did before. Smooth the surface with a spoon.

Finally, it’s time to add the finishing touches to your Oreo ice cream cake. Use the remaining ice cream and scoop with an ice cream scoop to create a nice scoop. I like to pile them all in the middle of the cake to add some heigh and dimension.

Use the whipped cream to pipe rosettes or any design you desire along the edges of the cake. Take the whole Oreo cookies you set aside earlier and place them on top of the whipped cream rosettes for a stunning garnish.

Store the ice cream cake in the freezer until you are ready to enjoy.

Your Oreo ice cream cake is now ready to be enjoyed! When it’s time to serve remove the outside of the springform pan and slice into the cake and revel in the heavenly combination of creamy ice cream and chocolatey Oreo goodness.

Tips For This Recipe:

Make sure you use a springform pan. A springform pan allows you to easily remove the ice cream cake without it falling apart.

Make sure your ice cream is a little soft. This will allow you to spread the ice cream into one layer.

Place a spoon in a cup of warm water before you spread the ice cream. This will help the ice cream to spread easier.

Make sure you freeze the ice cream cake for at least 3 hours to harden.

How To Store Ice Cream Cake:

You want to store the cake in a freezer. You can make this recipe ahead up to 2 days in advanced.

When you are ready to serve let the cake sit out for a couple of minutes before you remove the springform pan and cut the cake.
