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?

  1. You are a good wife! There are certain things I won’t make for my husband either…pudding is one. But that has less to do with the stirring and more to do with the fact that it makes me gag.

    This cake on the other hand…yep, save me a slice.

    I just made this as I have a 14 yo male Oreo monster in my house. He’s going to love this and it didn’t even take me 5 min to put together. I made a smaller version using about 18 cookies altogether.

  3. Mary Schumacher

    mmmm! Love this idea. I just made it with a St Patrick’s Day twist- Cool Mint double stuff Oreos! Can’f wait to taste tonight!

  4. You’re so right about having our husbands branching out! Besides, sometimes the old school recipes need a little updating… So I really enjoy your take on an icebox cake! Easy and simple! Thank you for sharing, Shelly! (=

      1. This soooo sounds like something my hubby would say. I mean really, you TRY to do something nice and boom, they go and erase all the nice-ness away!!!!! And btw, for those who “don’t do Cool Whip” (me either) , Trader Joes has an identical product called House Whip. Also , Jo Jo’s are their version of Oreos without the trans fats.

          Great alternative! Thanks for adding that. I will have to look for the House Whip at Trader Joe’s next time I’m there!

  5. ….
    there aren’t words for how much my dad will love this cake.
    ….if there’s enough left for him after I’m done burying my face in it.
    Pinning. So much pinning.

  6. I love any combination of Oreo especially in my deserts and this is so perfect and easy to make! Thanks for the recipe!
    Anyway what Cool Whip actually is? I’m not so sure whether I can find them in Malaysia but I never heard that thing before Lol. Is it sweetened whipping cream? 🙂

    Seriously, make the wellington! I did it a few years back for my Mother in law’s birthday. It was so good I thought everyone should be standing around the table applauding. It was totally worth it, at least once.:)
