Isaac has been in the kitchen with me since he was literally days old. He was a colicky baby and wasn’t content unless he was attached to me. Fun Fact #345: I’m a pro at cooking with one arm because of this. Anyway I like to think his love for cooking comes from having so many happy memories in the kitchen.
He loves helping me cook but lately he’s been more interested in doing his own recipes. Yep he’s Mr. Independent now. Makes me kinda sad.
He wanted to learn how to make a dessert that had chocolate in it so I had to think of something that he could remember all the ingredients to and one that was super easy. Bring on the Oreo Ice Box Cake!!!
This Oreo Ice Box Cake is super easy. No baking just stacking and spreading. The ingredients are simple too; Oreos, milk, Cool Whip and chocolate syrup!! Kids and adults LOVE this dessert. Even those who turn their nose up at the simple ingredients will finish off a plate. My husband introduced me to this simple dessert when we were dating. I really didn’t think I’d care for it too much I mean…it’s just oreos and cool whip. How exciting can that get, right?
Let’s just say I was dipping into it all day long and this is why I don’t make it often. It’s one of those simple yet can’t get enough of kinda desserts. You’ll have the whole pan finished off before you know it if you aren’t careful. You’ve been warned.
Now I’ve gone and tried to reinvent the wheel by adding various things like caramel topping, peanuts, etc, but this recipe is best kept simple. It just works!!
