The easiest ice cream cake!

I’ve shared so many ice cream cakes over the years — some with Brownie Crusts, one with Samoa Cookies, and even one that’s only three ingredients. We definitely love our ice cream around these parts. 🙂

My mom is known among our extended family and family friends for her ice cream desserts, so here’s another one she made often: Oreo® ice cream cake. It’s loaded with chocolate and Oreos and makes the perfect summer cool-down treat. Plus this cake requires only FIVE ingredients.

Ingredients in this Oreo ice cream cake

  • Oreos: Of course Oreos — these cookies make up the base of the cake and garnish the top.
  • Butter: The crushed cookies get mixed with butter to form the crust for these bars.
  • Cookies and cream ice cream: Ice cream is next- and make sure to use a brand you love since the ice cream is the primary flavor. Don’t have a brand you love? Taste-testers ranked 15 different brands in this article. We love Tillamook® and TurkeyHill® best, but I’ll admit I haven’t sampled all 15 of the different brands! (Not sponsored)
  • Hot fudge sauce: One container of hot fudge is spread over the ice cream next. You can make your own if you’re feeling ambitious.
  • Cool whip: Last, but not least, we add 1 container of Cool Whip® (or another frozen whipped topping) on top. If you’d like a healthier alternative, you can try TruWhip®. Or make your own “Cool Whip” whipped topping to finish off this ice cream cake (recipe below!)

Homemade “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) add the 1 cup heavy cream, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. Beat to combine and then increase the speed and whip until firm peaks form, about 2-4 minutes. With a spatula, spread the whipped cream over the ice cream until smooth.

Oreo Ice Cream Cake tips

  • Don’t add hot butter to the crushed cookies: Let the butter cool slightly before mixing the two together to avoid greasy bars.
  • Thoroughly crush the Oreos: If there are big pieces of Oreos in the crust, it will still taste great, but the bars won’t cut out as nicely. I recommend a blender or food processor for crushing the cookies.
  • Switch things up: swap flavor profiles: Try mint Oreos and mint ice cream OR chocolate Oreos and chocolate ice cream. The sky is the limit — mix and match different Oreo flavors with complementary ice cream flavors.
  • Line the pan with parchment paper and leave an overhang for easy cake removal. These ice cream bars will stick to the sides of the pan and be nearly impossible to pull out neatly without the parchment paper.
  • Let bars stand for 5 minutes at room temperature before cutting and serving. Use a hot, sharp knife (run it under hot water, dry with a towel) to make cuts into the bars. Serve and return any leftovers (covered tightly) to the freezer.
