Oreo Ice Cream Cake!!

This weekend my family was in town to celebrate my sister's birthday. It was a ton of fun, and went by incredibly too quickly. 

They landed on Thursday, her actual birthday, which is also why I was MIA from the blog. I decided to greet them with a favorite home cooked meal. J made an amazing pulled pork, which I will have to post soon, and I worked on an Ice Cream Oreo Cookie Cake. Its simple and fun, and we picked at it all weekend. 

Here's what you need:

  • A bow of Oreo's (In Nassau I could only get them in the individual sleeves So, I used 3 sleeves.)
  • 1 Quart of Vanilla Ice Cream or the ice cream of your choice
  • Cool Whip
  • 2 jars of chocolate fudge
  • A Blender
  • A casserole dish

First,  set the ice cream and the Cool Whip on the counter to soften. This really helps with molding it in the dish later. Now, throw 2 sleeves of the Oreo's into the blender and press pulse. You don't want to crumble the cookies too much, because the fun is in the crunchiness. 

Pour 1/3 of the crumbles into the bottom of the casserole dish. Now scoop out half of the ice cream, and layer it on top of the cookie crumbs. I used my fingers to spread the ice cream evenly, since that was the easiest way to do it without moving the cookies too much. Add a second layer of another 1/3 the Oreo crumble, the second half of the ice cream quart, and then the final layer of cookie crumble. 

Now take out that chocolate fudge, and drizzle to your hearts content! (If you love chocolate fudge, you can add a layer earlier on, I didn't, but I might next time!)  I used about a jar and a half of chocolate fudge. Deliciousness. 

Now for the final layer! The Cool Whip layer! I put in the entire container, and used a spoon and my fingers to smooth it out. Finally I wiped off the sides of the dish with a paper towel, and added some full Oreo cookies to the top to decorate it. 

Cover the dish with tin foil and put it in the freezer overnight to settle and re-freeze. 

This is an amazing way to make Ice Cream cake at home. It's easy, appreciated, and feels just a little more luxurious that the everyday cake.
