cutting a slice of oreo ice box cake

Anyone else love a good icebox cake?

The simplicity of just whipping up some heavy cream and adding a couple layers of Oreo cookies is the ultimate in versatile and appealing, especially for an easy summer dessert idea. I love that the kids can help make it, 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. I was thinking the Lemon Oreos and adding lemon zest to the filling would be fantastic, too. The possibilities are endless!

chocolate drizzle on the oreo cake

This “cake” is a chocolate masterpiece!

Oh my goodness, my kids loved this dessert. I enjoyed the chocolate creamy combo with the Oreos so much. The texture is like a rich chocolate thickened whipped cream, with yummy, softened Oreos. What a perfect idea for a fun warm weather dessert, or perhaps a summer birthday! YUM!

Hip Tip: Make this dessert a day ahead of time since it stores well when covered in the fridge.

    I make something similar: I take a half gallon of vanilla ice cream, a bowl of extra creamy cool whip and a package of Oreo cookies. Let the ice cream get a little soft. Using a mixer, blend the ice cream and cool whip together. Crush Oreo’s and add to ice cream mixture. Pour into 9×13 pan, cover and freeze. You can also crush additional Oreo’s to garnish the top and drizzle chocolate and carmel over that to make a beautiful dessert. This is one of my families favorite desserts especially in the summer.

    • Angela

      Thank you for sharing that. It sounds so good and easy.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yum! Thanks for sharing Pam 👍

  2. Suzanne

    Thank you! We meet with a few other couples from church every other week for dinner so I’m always looking for new and easy recipes!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Enjoy Suzanne! This one is yum 😋

  3. Dealzgurl

    Ummmm…I’m going to pretend I didn’t see this recipe, lol. 🙃 it looks way too good!

    • Amber

      Ditto

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ha ha thanks Dealzgurl!

    • Amy

      I thought the same thing! Too easy and looks incredible!

  4. ~jenn~

    I may have to make this just for the fun of it! I make my own Oreos so that’ll keep it even less processed foods and more homemade. Keto doesn’t allow for it in my carb count, but it looks like too much fun to not at least make it.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh nice! Thanks Jenn!

    • Margie

      Could you please tell us how you make your own Oreos? I have been wanting to do the same. We are always looking to turn our favorites into homemade versions. We live on a farm, raise and grow what we eat other than dairy. I am trying to teach my kids that we can make the things that they love to buy from the store. 🙂

  5. A.B.

    This looks like such a fun summer treat, I can’t wait to try it! Also Lina, thank you SO much for the cookie sheet pancake post! It has literally been a game changer for me! I have 4 kiddos, and rarely made pancakes, because it was so time consuming! Since that post, they’ve enjoyed pancakes from scratch, twice a week!!! Oh the joy!!! Bless you! 🥞🥰

  6. Richy

    This is great! I always stare at those cakes when I’m at the store, but never want to shell out that much money for a craving where I’ll probably be the only one eating. If I make it myself, I can finally get back into baking and put my springform pan to use.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes enjoy Richy! Great use for a springform pan! <3

  7. Lesli

    This sounds delicious! I accidentally rated this recipe and didn’t mean to (scrolling on my cell) and I think I only gave it at 3 but it sounds like a 5 star recipe!! I can’t wait to make it!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ha thanks Lesli! ❤️🤗

  8. babymair

    Lina, thx so much for this kid friendly dessert. My two boys cant wait to help me smash cookies for this .lol .keep up the good work and God bless.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes!! How fun- enjoy! 🤗 thank you so much!

  9. dolcedelish

    Curious if these can be made “Keto Friendly ” if you remove the oreos and replace powdered sugar with a sugar alternative (splenda-like)

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes absolutely -great idea…I’d use powdered Swerve! Yum 😋

  10. Terry

    I feel I must provide this Public Service Announcement. This recipe says it provides 8 servings, but doesn’t provide the calorie count. I calculated it. It’s 5,892 calories. That means 736 calories a serving.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      thanks Terry! It’s pretty rich so you could most likely cut it into more pieces if desired.

    • E

      Ouch, that’s a lot of calories! I am actually thinking I could omit the sugar and just do Oreos on the bottom and top. I did something similar with a mint pie and it was soooo good! I hadn’t thought of using a springform pan. It’s a great idea.

  11. Julia

    Is this KETO friendly ??? Asking for a friend

  12. *Angela-Miles*

    I’ve never heard of a icebox cake. Baking is one of my favs so I’m definitely going to try this recipe. Thanks for the new find for me Lol. 🎂🍥
    I also just bought some lemon Oreos last week, so maybe I will use them instead like u mentioned 🤗

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay! I think a lemon version would ROCK! 🙂
