An Easy No-Bake Oreo Ice Box Cake

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.

Kinda sorta.

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 Stuff Oreos in there.

Who’s winning now, pudding?

Anyway, Oreo Icebox Cake.  Be a hero.

I created a video to show you how easy…

 

Like I said, this is the easiest dessert ever.

How to Make this Easy Oreo Icebox Cake

Gather your “ingredients”…

Oreo Icebox Cake

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.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

OK I don’t eat beef, I dislike the traditional Ice Box Cake (sorry mom, it’s true), but I LOOOOOOOOOVE Oreos. I have to try this recipe. Today even! I love the humor in your intro. Might have to check out your other offerings 🙂

I just made this to take to a Mother’s Day potluck tomorrow! … It was so easy and fun to make!, can’t wait to taste it and see what the family thinks of it …
Thank you for such an imaging idea!…. I use chocolate Oreos for the first and last layer, the middle layer I used the golden Oreos … Can’t wait to see how that looks turns out ????

I want to try this real soon! I’ve been really craving oreos lately. I love them dipped in milk and love whipped cream so I’m sure I’ll love this. Looks like it’ll be good. Similar to something my Mom made but it wasn’t oreo cookies it was some type of chocolate wafer with whipped cream. My boys would love helping me with it too. I just really shouldn’t eat it all myself so I need to see where I can take it to share with others.

OMG! I was laughing so hard regarding your comments on “not” making beef wellington and homemade pudding…….. Sooooo true and so funny! Then I got to the recipe. How easy is that! My family is a big “Cool Whip” bunch around the holidays. Can’t wait to make it!

Melissa

I love it and deff want to try. But I have to ask, why dip them in milk?

This recipe was SUCH A HIT! So easy to follow and make, too. Only took me 25 minutes. I’d suggest using less cool whip though. 1 tub between each layer was almost too much to fit into my container! Also, I subbed the chocolate sauce for the chocolate shell 🙂 Highly highly recommend for any summer parties, etc. Delicious!

My grandmother used to make an icebox log. She used chocolate wafer cookies, slather whipped cream on the wafer and stack them side by side till it was about 10 inches or so long. I think she’d like the Oreo version too. I’d like to try an Oreo log. Hope it can stick together but I think I’ll eat it even if it falls apart!

My cousin recommended I might like this web site.
Thanks!

Can I use an ordinary whipped cream here? Like the ones they put on starbucks frappes?
