Cookies 'n Cream Ice Cream Cake: super easy and versatile recipe, perfect any time of year!

I know many people think ice cream is a summer dessert only. However, in our house, we eat ice cream for dessert several times a week.

And when there is a special occasion or a birthday, I love putting together a quick and delicious treat!

Enter….the Oreo Ice Cream cake. (almost as good as a strawberry shortcake ice cream bar!)

This treat seriously takes minutes to assemble. And it stays well in the freezer until you are ready to serve. While summer is definitely over, and the cooler weather is upon us, try making this treat using seasonal ice creams.

Cookies 'n Cream Ice Cream Cake: super easy and versatile recipe, perfect any time of year!

Pumpkin Ice cream would taste OUT OF THIS WORLD. And Peppermint ice cream with the hot fudge sauce and ice cream sandwiches…one of our favorite Christmas desserts. Sprinkle on some extra crushed candy canes and you’ll be the hit of the holidays!

Comments & Reviews

  1. This looks soo up my alley! I LOVE cookies and cream ice cream and this oreo ice cream cake is the perfect dessert! Someone should make this for my birthday! Haha 🙂

  2. I totally agree – ice cream all year round, please! And I also love making it for birthdays and any family gathering because it’s sure to please everyone. My son loves oreos and cookies & cream ice cream so I’m very interested in this. : )

  3. This looks amazing! If you used pumpkin ice cream would you still use the ice cream sandwiches and the fudge/oreo’s?? Could you swap it for ginger snaps and caramel maybe??

  4. My husband eats ice cream year round, too! I always think he’s crazy, but then when peppermint ice cream comes out in November, I’m in too!

  5. Ice cream never goes out of season. Neither does Oreos:) This combo looks so good, even though its 40 degrees outside! What an impressive dessert; love how easy it is!

  6. We eat ice cream all year long too – definitely a year round food! This cake looks awesome and so easy! I love that you can switch it up so easily 🙂

  7. This might be a variation, of that “Zebra cake” recipe, (everyone is talking about) it uses those thin, flat, round, Larger, chocolate “wafers” that are scarce, and possibly hard to find.

  8. What a fun quick cake!!! I eat ice cream all year round. In fact I think we go out for ice cream more in the winter than in the summer.

  9. This ice cream cake looks delicious. It would be a fab birthday cake. Who doesn’t like ice cream and oreos great combination!!! We eat ice cream all round too! Any day a good day for it!
