Oreo Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Cake

This Oreo Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Cake might just be my favorite ice cream cake yet! Especially if you’re an Oreo fan, which I am. It’s like eating the creamiest, most tasty Oreo filled ice cream dessert ever.

Oreo Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Cake

You might find it strange that I’m posting not one, but two frozen treats in the month of January, but I see no reason to boycott ice cream at any point in the year. I eat it year round! In fact, just the other day I sat in front of the lovely fire the hubs made with a carton and went to town on a left over carton of eggnog ice cream. No shame here.

And this ice cream cake is definitely worth making, no matter the weather. I stuffed it with as many Oreos as I could without literally putting a pile of Oreos on a plate. You’ll need just about a whole package. No skimping folks.

And it’s not just stuffed with chunks of Oreo. Because let’s be honest – that’s not enough. It’s full of Oreo crumbs as well to give you the full cookies and cream experience.

You literally can’t take a bite of this without getting a mouth full of Oreo awesomeness. A truly irresistable cookies and cream dessert.

You start with my usual suspects – two layers of brownie and my favorite no-ice-cream-machine-needed ice cream base. To that ice cream base you add loads and loads of Oreo.

Pretty easy so far, right?

Next, you want to prepare your pan for building the cake. I’ve noted this in the instructions, but it’s important to use the same pan to build the cake as you did to make the brownies, otherwise the brownies may be too big or small.

I usually put a cake circle in the bottom of the cake pan I used and line it with parchment paper. The cake circle makes it nice an easy to move the cake around once I take it out of the pan.

Now comes the layering – the fun part!

We’ve got a layer of brownie on the bottom, topped with Oreo ice cream. Add some chocolate sauce to that and you’re half way there! You add the second brownie, the rest of the ice cream and then top with even more chopped Oreos, chocolate sauce and whipped cream. Bam! All done!

It’s the most fabulous ice cream cake ever. Seriously. You can’t buy this in the store people. And you won’t want to stop eating it. So you know what that means – time to make the cake and grab a fork.

Oreo Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Cake

Oreo Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Cake


1 box brownie mix, plus ingredients required on box
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
8 oz Cool Whip, thawed (OR 1 recipe of homemade whipped cream)
1 1/4 cups Oreo crumbs (from about 16 Oreos)
7-10 Oreos, chopped, optional
1 20 oz bottle chocolate sundae syrup (Here's the one I used)
additional Oreos and whipped cream for the top, optional


NOTE: An 8-inch springform pan is best for this recipe so that you can easily remove the cake once it's been assembled. If you do not have a springform pan, line your pan with clear wrap before adding your parchment paper and cake board. You can use the clear warp to lift your cake out of the pan once it's assembled and frozen.

1. Make brownie dough according to instructions on back of box.
2. Grease two 8-inch pans (preferable springform pans, see above) and line the bottoms with parchment paper to allow for easy removal. Bake at temperature on box, reducing baking time to about 20 minutes (You can also bake 1 big brownie - which would cook for the normal time - and cut it in half, but cutting a brownie in half isn't super easy).
3. When brownies are done baking, allow to completely cool.

Ice Cream:
1. Combine cream cheese, sugar, milk and vanilla together in the bowl of a stand mixer, or with a hand mixer. Mix until completely combined.
2. Fold in the cool whip, Oreo crumbs and chopped Oreos.

Assembling it all:
1. Line the sides of an 8-inch springform pan with parchment paper. The parchment paper should stick up above the top edge of the pan, since the cake will probably be a little taller than your pan. If you want, put a cardboard cake circle in the bottom of the pan.
NOTE: You should be using the same 8-inch pan you used for the brownies. Not all 8-inch pans are exactly the same size. Your brownie needs to fit in this pan.
2. Put the first brownie layer in the bottom of your pan.
3. Top with half of the Oreo ice cream.
4. Spread 1 cup of chocolate sauce over the ice cream and spread evenly.
5. Add second brownie to the pan.
6. Top with remaining Oreo ice cream.
7. Top with additional chopped Oreos, whipped cream and chocolate sauce, if desired.
8. Allow ice cream cake to freeze completely, 6-8 hours.
9. When frozen, remove from springform pan and remove parchment paper from sides.
10. Top with additional caramel sauce and chocolate sauce, allowing it to drizzle down the sides.
11. Cover with remaining chopped snickers and a little more caramel and chocolate sauce.

  1. This is so professional looking! I wish that my cakes turned out like yours look! Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Do we need to defrost the cake before serving?

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      You can set it out for 10-15 minutes before serving to soften it, but it should be served frozen.

      • I would like to make this but i’m afraid once frozen the brownie will be too hard to cut into and to also eat frozen brownie.

        • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

          If you set it out about 15 minutes before cutting, you shouldn’t have a problem with cutting or eating the brownies. If you’d prefer cake layers though, check this recipe out and replace the brownies with the cake layers

  3. You are speaking straight to my tummy! Thanks for the wonderful recipe. Definitely pinned.

  14. Wow, what a gorgeous cake! Thanks for linking up with What’s Cookin’ Wednesday!

  15. These recipes look wonderful! All of the recipes with brownies call for a brownie mix. What size mix is it? For a 8×8 or a 9×13 pan. I know it needs to be divided between to 8′ inch springform pans. The 8×8 just seems that it would be to thin.

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      You can really use either based on how thick of a brownie layer you want. The 9×13 would probably be easiest though.

  16. it looks amazing!

  18. Wow, looks amazing. I’d love to try it. How many people does it serve?

  19. This looks great. What do you think about substituting the ingredients for the homemade ice cream and just mixing in Oreos with vanilla ice cream to simplify it a bit?
