Cookies and Cream Icebox Cake

Cookies and Cream Icebox Cake recipe

Happy Memorial Day weekend! I don’t know about you, but I am pretty excited about summer. I feel like this was the school year that would not end.

Maybe it is because we still have a month left of school. We had 12 snow days and need to make up what feels like a million of them.

Maybe it is because we are about to move to the beach and the movers come in 3 weeks.

Maybe it is because I don’t want to have to pack another lunch.

Maybe I just want to not be so pasty and pale for a little while.

Whatever the reason, I am beyond excited for summer to start.

I have been doing some photography work for Dixie Crystals and I found this icebox cake recipe on their website. I thought to myself, “Self, you have everything you need to make this right this minute.”

So, guess what? I made it. And it took about 10 minutes from start to finish. I love not having to turn on the oven and the kids were so happy with me when I gave them this as an after school treat. It is creamy and light and full of crushed Oreos. We loved it.

    This looks amazing! I love that you also have those conversations with yourself! Mine usually involve a debate about whether I should or should not be making cookies AGAIN! This freezer cake is going straight to the top of my list. Hello, Summer!

    Lil’P (4yrs) and I made this yesterday before noon, put it in the freezer and it was ready to serve after dinner. The recipe is simple enough for me to follow and has enough activity for a 4 year old. He really loved crushing Oreos in a bowl with the bottom of a coffee mug. The cake came out beautifully and was quickly consumed! Everyone loved it. I might try adding some thin mints as a layer next time. Thanks for sharing!

    1. bakedbree

      I am so glad! Yes, it is so easy and perfect for kids to help with. Thin mints would be so good. And chocolate chip cookies. 🙂

  9. Holly Jayne

    This was so delicious and easy. I read through the comments first and used thin mints for the middle layer and everybody loved it! Thanks for a great recipe! 🙂

    1. bakedbree

      Yum! Glad that you liked it!

    can I use a plate & wax paper instead of the pan & wrap? I’m making this for my boyfriend’s birthday on Wednesday and just need a response as soon as possible :/

    1. bakedbree

      It won’t slice the same, but you can make it in a round versus a loaf.

  11. Jill Roberts @ WellnessGeeky

    The colors are so vibrant- your photography is fantastic! This cookies and cream icebox cake recipe is incredible! I’m seriously so inspired right now. I need to add cinnamon and honey to recipe and it would be perfect. Thx for sharing!

    1. bakedbree

      Thanks so much, I really appreciate that!
