This is one of my favorite summer desserts because it’s both rich and refreshing. It’s also so quick to make, which means less time in the kitchen and more time with friends and family.

How To Make Oreo Ice Cream Cake
Coarsely crush most of the Oreos (save about 10 for the top) and sprinkle them in the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish.
Soften the ice cream by sitting it out for a few minutes and then spread it over the top. I do this by plopping spoonfuls over the top and smearing them together with a butter knife.
Generously zig-zag some Hershey’s chocolate syrup over this.
Now spread the entire container of whipped topping over this. Press the remaining Oreos into the top and then zig-zag some magic shell over the top.
To keep it looking pretty, place it in the freezer for a few minutes uncovered, to allow the magic shell to harden.
Then cover and return it to the freezer until ready to serve. This is surprisingly easy to cut.
Store leftover cake in the freezer for up to 7 days. This is how long the Cool Whip will last, but without the whipped cream it would last in the freezer for up to 3 months.
- If you like, swap the cookies and cream ice cream for your favorite flavor. It would also taste delicious with mint chocolate chip ice cream, chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, , raspberry ice cream, or chocolate ice cream I think!
- Instead of the magic shell, drizzle the cake with hot fudge sauce. Let the ice cream layer set before you add the hot fudge sauce on top, otherwise the softened ice cream will just melt further.
- A fun thing you can do with leftover cake is transforming it into an Oreo milkshake. Add a large slice and a splash of milk to a blender and blend for about 15 seconds.
