The Perfect Oreo Ice Cream Cake

This ice cream cake has 4 layers that you’ll need to assemble:

  • a thick cookie crust
  • cookies and cream ice cream
  • chocolate fudge
  • whipped cream

For the crust, you’ll mix together crushed cookies and melted butter, then press it into the bottom of your pan. It’s super important that you don’t press down the crust too tightly, otherwise, it can be very hard to slice.

Then you’ll spoon cookies and cream ice cream over the crust and smooth the top. The ice cream should be slightly softened first so that it’s easy to spread in an even layer. I used a 1.75 quart tub (about 1.75 litres). Then you’ll pop it in the freezer for the ice cream to firm back up.

Pro Tip: To soften the ice cream, take it out of the freezer about 15-30 minutes prior. Add the ice cream to a bowl and give it a stir so that it’s an even consistency. This ensures that your ice cream cake freezes evenly.

After the ice cream is firm again (about 60 minutes), you’ll drizzle some hot fudge on top and pop it back in the freezer again. Whipped cream goes on top, and then I like to sprinkle on some extra cookie crumbs. Then once again, pop it back in the freezer so that it’s firmed up before serving.

Pro Tip: I actually don’t recommend covering the entire cake with hot fudge. It can end up making the whipped cream almost slide off the top. Leaving some of the ice cream exposed helps the whipped cream “stick”.

Tips & Tricks

  • This recipe can also be made in a 9-inch springform pan. Press the crust into the bottom and slightly up the sides of the pan. When ready to serve, trace around the outside of the cake with a sharp knife, then unclamp the outer ring.
  • The crust can be hard to slice since it’s frozen. Don’t pack it down too tightly, or you’ll have issues.
  • Homemade whipped cream can be substituted with an 8 oz tub of thawed whipped topping.

What’s the best way to cut the ice cream cake? I recommend taking the ice cream cake out of the freezer about 5-10 minutes before serving. Dip a large, sharp knife in a tall glass of hot water then dry it off. Then use the warm knife to cut the cake.

How to transport an ice cream cake: This is a bit tricky. I’ll often place mine in a cooler with a few ice packs when transporting the cake.
