I’m also in love with my new bowl for my KitchenAid stand mixer. We were shopping in Macy’s yesterday and I happened to find a new 6 quart bowl and I couldn’t pass it up! How awesome it will be to have 2 bowls!

I couldn’t find the price, but knew I’d buy it as long as it wasn’t more than $100.

Well, it rang up at $0.01! Whhhaaaaat?!? It apparently wasn’t supposed to be out, but since it was and their policy is that they can’t sell something for a penny, I got the bowl for $15! I’ll take it!

I did a happy dance right then and there. Two-bowl happiness! You know what else makes me happy dance? This ice cream.

I can’t even stand how good this it is. Talk about cinnamon-y! I could basically coat everything in cinnamon and sugar, so if ice cream could talk, this one would speak my language.

The Story Behind This Ice Cream Recipe

It’s actually inspired by an ice cream from our grocery store, Publix. We had Publix when we lived in Florida too and this was easily my favorite ice cream. I got it once when my dad was visiting because I knew he’d love it and he literally went about bought another carton for eat for the week. No joke, the best ice cream ever.

Why they stopped making it I will never know. I mean, I assume they stopped making it because I’ve looked for it all over and never found it. 🙁

But have no fear! I’ve finally made my own version!

I’ve been wanting to do it forever and finally got around to it. I’ve been promising the hubs, who also loved the original and he was thrilled when tasted it. Amazing. Might even be better than the Publix brand.

I came home last week to find dirty bowls that had been full of the ice cream all over the house. He’s not normally into eating ice cream all the time, but he couldn’t resist this one.

It’s smooth and creamy, but has some texture from the soft oatmeal cookies and some crunch from the mini chocolate chips.

I used fresh baked cookies from the bakery, but if you have a favorite oatmeal cookie, go with it.

And I definitely recommend the mini chocolate chips as opposed to full size. Much easier to bite into when frozen.

And as if it couldn’t get any better – you don’t need an ice cream machine! Score!!

Super easy, super flavorful and prefect for summer! Must. make.

This homemade Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream is made with a cinnamon ice cream base. Add mini chocolate chips, oatmeal cookie pieces, and a cinnamon swirl, and you have a full-blown ice cream masterpiece. I’m in love!


  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • one 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 12 oz Cool Whip (OR homemade whipped cream)
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup oatmeal cookies, broken into pieces


  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar


1. Combine cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk in a large bowl and mix until smooth.
2. Add brown sugar, vanilla and cinnamon and until until incorporated.
3. Fold in Cool Whip until well combined.
4. Fold in mini chocolate chips and oatmeal cookies.
5. In a small bowl, combine corn syrup, cinnamon and sugar.
6. For layering the ice cream and cinnamon swirl, you’ll need a large container for freezing the ice cream. Place 1/3 of the ice cream mixture into the container.
7. Add about 1/3 of the cinnamon mixture on top of the ice cream.
8. Repeat with the ice cream and cinnamon two more times, for a total of 3 layers of both ice cream and cinnamon swirl, ending with cinnamon swirl on top.
9. Freeze for 4-5 hours or overnight.


To substitute homemade whipped cream for Cool Whip, beat 2 cups of heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form.

    The publix ice cream was literally my favorite ice cream of all time. I can’t wait to try this recipe! I still hope everytime I go down the ice cream aisle that they may have brought it back….so now, no more wishing!

  2. Lynn

    Son of a… Crap. My husband and I gave up ice cream this year (because we are cray cray and like to challenge ourselves with weird things) and this is hurting me a lot. I should have never clicked… When January 1st rolls around, I MAYYYY have to dive into this recipe.

    Your recipe is fantastic! As a couple previous users commented, Ben & Jerry’s had a very similar flavor that is now difficult (if not impossible) to find and their version was ridiculously good. Your recipe tasted nearly identical to the B&J flavor (at least insofar that I can remember) except for the addition of mini-chocolate chips which makes yours, naturally, better!

    After making the ice cream, I was trying to figure out how to use the remaining heavy whipping cream (I made my own whip cream) and corn syrup because I rarely buy either and I especially didn’t want the cream to go bad. Turns out homemade caramels are fairly easy to make and use both ingredients so if other users find themselves in a similar position, that’s my recommendation.

    Finally, I’d recommend crumbling much more cookie than the recipe suggests. The cookie is the best part of the ice cream (alongside the cinnamon) and I wish I would have doubled (and possibly tripled) the amount.

    Thanks again!

      Thank you so much Matthew! I’m so glad you like it! I think the addition of more cookie pieces sounds great. And I love the caramels suggestion, I’ll have to try that myself. 🙂

  5. Matthew

    What are the dimensions of the pan you used? I want to make sure the caramel swirl/ice cream layers have a good ratio. Thanks for the recipe and I’ll let you know how it turns out!

  6. Rachel @ Bakerita

    YUM! Ben and Jerry’s used to make an oatmeal cookie ice cream that was my absolute favorite. I’ve been meaning to try my own version for a couple years now but keep forgetting! This sounds so close to it!

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      That sounds delicious – I’ve never had it. This does sound close though. You should give it a try – so good!

  10. Katie

    I love that you don’t need an ice cream maker for this. So awesome. I’ve been wanting to make home made ice cream for awhile but haven’t been wanting to invest in an ice cream maker. Def. making this!

  11. Julianne @ Beyond Frosting

    OMG freaking out! This reminds m of my favorite Ben and Jerrys flavor! Oatmeal Cookie Chunk!

  12. Kate @Framed Cooks

    Wow – I think you got every single thing I love into one recipe. Well, except for bacon – I might have to sneak some of that in there. And gorgeous pictures too!

  13. Julie @ This Gal Cooks

    Publix totally has the BEST ice cream ever! When I lived in Lakeland, I worked for Publix corporate over in the Deli Kitchen offices. We used to get free ice cream for the department from the Dairy Plant. Our break room freezer was full of it! Those were some of the best snack break times ever!

    This ice cream looks amazing, Lindsay! I could really go for a bowl of it right now. Pinned and sharing on FB. Have a great evening!

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      Omg, what an awesome snack break!! The benefits of working for a company that’s in the food industry – you get to eat it! Yum!! Thanks for sharing Julie!! 🙂

  14. Alyssa {Cake, Crust, and Sugar Dust}

    I was literally holding my breath while scrolling through this post hoping that an ice cream machine wasn’t needed…SO ready to make this! I’m kind of freaking out about it!

  15. Michelle @ A Latte Food

    First of all, I am in love with that teal bowl. Secondly, shoot, I need to go to Macy’s pronto and see if I can get some amazing luck like that! =) And lastly, which is the most important, this ice cream looks downright incredible. Pinned and ready to try!

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      Thanks Michelle!! The teal bowl is from Target. I think they still have them – in a couple colors too.

  16. Lindsey @ American Heritage Cooking

    For the love of all that is sweet, I need this ice cream in my life right now! RIGHT NOW! Cinnamon, oatmeal cookies, chocolate chips, ice cream! And no ice cream maker! I love it!

    So jealous of your new $15 bowl! Who knew Macy’s had such a policy! 🙂

  17. Matt Robinson

    If I had to pick one ice cream to live on for the rest of my life, this would be it. Love the flavors, the texture, everything about it. Awesome!

  18. Julie @ Julie's Eats & Treats

    Two bowl envy right here girlfriend! I soooo need a second bowl! What a steal. I’d really be jealous if both bowls were filled with this amazing ice cream!

  20. Robin @ Simply Southern Baking

    Oh my goodness! This looks amazing and I want a bowlful for breakfast! Publix does have great premium ice cream and it’s still 1/2 gallon too. I try to get it on sale. 🙂

  21. How to Philosophize with Cake
