Easy Oreo Ice Box Cake

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.

Baby Ethan has joined the kitchen! We had a blast!

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!!!

Layer it in a deeper dish for more layers!

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?

It doesn’t get any more simpler than this my friend!

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.

Decorate the top with chocolate syrup and crushed Oreos. (We wanted to eat our leftover Oreo though : )

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!!

  1. Easiest recipe I’ve ever tried. Tasted great. I went a little crazy and crumbled brownies between the layers and added hot fudge sauce. It was absolutely wonderful. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. Thanks monique I absolutely adore this recipe it’s so easy and by the way Isaac is just soooo adorable – and Ethan.!

  3. This recipe is a life saver! My best friend’s birthday is coming up and she loves cakes with oreo’s but is really picky with them. It tastes so good, I’m sure she’ll love it. :D

  4. Isaac is such a darling! Thanks for this amazing recipe! I am so gonna make this! Just hope I do not eat the oreos before I even start making it!

  5. If i don’t have cool whip can i use whipping cream? Any suggestion? Really want to try this recipe. Tq

  6. I just tried this today and thought that it was pretty good. I didn’t buy the chocolate syrup, but it was still tasty. Next time, I will keep the cookies in the milk long enough to soften them all because the texture was really nice when some of the cookies got soft. Yummy.

  7. hi! :) your kids are so cute. im planning on making this dessert for my daughters birthday. we don’t have cool whip available in all the stores where I live. I bought philadelphia whipped, would it taste the same? have you tried using it before? thanks in advance!
