Ingredients that Make Magic Happen
Let’s take a look at what goes into this delectable Oreo ice cream cake:
- Oreos: These iconic cookies form the base of the cake and add a delightful crunch.

- Cookies and cream ice cream: Choose your favorite brand for the ultimate flavor. We recommend Tillamook® or TurkeyHill®.
- Hot fudge sauce: A generous layer of hot fudge sauce adds a gooey, chocolatey goodness.
- Cool whip: Finish it off with a dollop of Cool Whip®, or substitute with TruWhip® for a healthier alternative.
Indulge in Homemade “Cool Whip”
If you prefer a homemade touch, here’s a simple recipe for “Cool Whip”:
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a mixing bowl attached to a stand mixer with a whisk attachment, combine the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Whip until firm peaks form, about 2-4 minutes. Spread the whipped cream over the ice cream until smooth.
Tips for the Perfect Oreo Ice Cream Cake
To ensure your Oreo ice cream cake turns out flawless, keep these tips in mind:
- Let the butter cool: Don’t mix hot butter with crushed cookies to prevent greasy bars. Let it cool slightly before combining.
- Crush Oreos thoroughly: For perfectly cut bars, make sure to crush the Oreos into fine pieces. Use a blender or food processor for best results.
- Experiment with flavors: Don’t limit yourself to classic Oreos. Try different flavors like mint or chocolate for exciting variations.
- Line the pan with parchment paper: Avoid a sticky situation by lining the pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang for easy removal.
- Let it stand before serving: Allow the cake to sit for 5 minutes at room temperature before cutting. Use a hot knife for clean slices.
