You’re gonna LOVE this Oreo Icebox Cake!
There are a few foods that my husband loves that I refuse to make.
I am pretty sure that doesn’t make me a bad wife…I mean, I can’t remember the last time the man made me a cheesecake…
Anyway, example #1…Beef Wellington.
He has an odd fascination with this. And I won’t make it.
First of all, I don’t do pate´. Second of all, beef tenderloin is like 4 million dollars, and since I do the majority of the food shopping, I try and not blow my weekly budget on one giant slab of meat. Call me crazy.
Also, it seems complicated..and as far as I know it can’t be done in a crock pot…sooooo….I’m out.
Example #2…Icebox cake.
And when I say “Icebox Cake” I mean the kind his mom made him when he was little…layers of chocolate pudding and graham crackers topped with whipped cream. Here’s a version I found online.
Anyhow, I won’t make it.
Because I despise making pudding. Like really hate it. I wrote how I felt about the dessert when I made this Nutter Butter Icebox Cake.
I know it’s irrational, but I do. Allllll the stirrring.
But despite my better judgement I decided to be a good wife and make him some icebox cake.
I skipped the whole pudding nonsense, and went instead for Cool Whip.
He needs to branch out.
I know some of you out there don’t do Cool Whip, and that’s fine…I suppose you could make this with regular whipped cream.
But really, the whole point of this dessert is that you can literally make it in 10 minutes.
Oh, and there are Double Stuf Oreos in there.
Who’s winning now, pudding?
Anyway, Oreo Icebox Cake. Be a hero.
Like I said, this is the easiest dessert ever.
Gather your “ingredients”…
Just dip each Oreo into some milk…not a full soak, just a nice dip…
Then lay them flat in a 9×13 pan.
Once you have your first layer of cookies in the pan, top that with a layer of Cool Whip. A whole tub, actually.
Repeat this process 2 more times, so you will have 3 layers of Oreos and 3 layers of Cool Whip.
Then if you want top it with some chocolate sauce. Or even crumbled cookies…
Then the hard part. Let it chill. For 6 hours actually.
An overnight is better.
Then serve and make your husband happy.
Again, chocolate sauce is optional. Snort.
