Anyone else love a good icebox cake for dessert?
The simplicity of just whipping up some heavy cream and adding a couple of layers of Oreo cookies is the ultimate easy summer dessert idea.
I love that the kids can help make this versatile and appealing summer treat, and there’s no baking involved!
This delicious icebox cake is made with classic Oreo Cookies and chocolate-flavored whipped cream filling. Once everything is in the fridge for a few hours, the cookies soften, and the dessert becomes more like a “cake”. The result is a rich and decadent dessert that tastes fancy, yet is super easy to make!
I used a 10-inch springform pan for this dessert. Once chilled, I ran a knife around the edges, so the sides come off easily for serving. It makes for a beautiful presentation, too.
You can also use a deep pie pan or 8×8 pan in a pinch if you want to serve your icebox cake straight from the pan.
Such an easy & versatile idea!
There are so many variations of this dessert idea you could make. You could use chocolate chip cookies, and omit the cocoa powder for a vanilla filling. Using the Lemon Oreos and adding lemon zest to the filling would be fantastic, too. The possibilities are endless!
Note: You can make this as a no-bake cake like I have here, by placing in the fridge for a few hours or overnight and the cookies will become soft like a cake, or you can freeze it like an ice cream cake if desired. We actually froze the leftovers and then let it thaw for a few minutes to serve again! Yum!
