Oreo Ice Cream

Has anyone noticed it's summer? I have (and so has my bank account.) Summer in the city is like a 3 month long party. It never stops. There's always something to do and thank goodness this past weekend it wasn't blazing hot. (No AC underground on subway platforms when it's 95 and humid = Erika melts.)

So, just in time for non melting but still hot weather, here's an easy recipe for making some beefed up Oreo ice cream. Let me know what YOU'RE doing to keep cool this summer.

Oreo Ice Cream from Mom's Best Recipes Cookbook
1 large pkg Oreo cookies, crushed (19-20 oz)
1 large Cool Whip (12 oz)
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, softened
Mix all together. Pour into 2 9x13 pans. Freeze with foil on top.
Erika's Extras: Have pans already chilled in freezer before pouring ice cream into them. Also, if you are a nutty person and love nuts, feel free to add 1 1/3 C nuts to the mix before freezing.
Erika's Extra: If you are a maverick at eating this ice cream, you already know that the correct way to eat it is by making designs in the ice cream first and THEN eating.
Bake well and prosper!


  1. I’m confused.

    Why aren’t we done making this immediately after the “mix all together” step?

    Shouldn’t “mix all together” be followed by “take bowl, spoon (optional) and your butt to the couch and eat all contents of said bowl while watching reruns of Family Guy”?

    Just curious.


  2. Because it's kinda warm at this point. Much better cold and eaten while watching new episodes of Family Guy and Modern Family. (They both have family in their title....thought I'd point that out.)

  3. I'm going to have to try your oreo ice cream! So easy and you can't go wrong with those ingredients! The best part is it doesn't require an ice cream maker - so anyone can make it!

  4. BUT BUT BUT the NEW episodes of Family Guy & Modern Family aren’t on until this Fall and by then it’ll be cold outside and I wont want to eat ice cream treats.....

  5. Ron - Good point about the new episodes....but not about the weather. You live in CA.... ;p Ok fine! Eat it how you want! :)

  6. just sampled this ice cream and WOW... EB the MC never ceases to amaze!

  7. Life certainly is too short to skip dessert; love the tagline! Love the maverick tip ... LOL! A bowlful is just what I need now! Cheers!!

  8. I ADORE oreos. Thank god u can get them in the UK. THey used to be pretty scarce when I first moved here.
    I love it when I go to america and get Dairy Queen Oreo blizzards. I should do what you did and make my own oreo ice cream. Great idea.
    *kisses* HH

  9. How did I miss this one!!!! I'm so on it like oreo's are in my mouth.

    HUH???? :O)

  10. DAMN! I wish I could still eat Oreos! This would've been my favorite concoction!


Thanks for taking time to leave a message! xo - EB
