Oreo Icebox Cake
Oreos are a given at our house. They’re the go-to dessert when we’re out of my homemade treats, or gasp, when I’ve made something with nuts, mint, coconut or caramel. Double Stuf is the preferred variety, but the traditional Oreos will do. I had never purchased Oreo Thins before making this Oreo Icebox Cake, but they were readily available.
Tips for Making an Icebox Cake
An old fashioned icebox cake is basically layered chocolate wafers and whipped cream. The moisture of the cream softens the cookies as they chill overnight in the refrigerator. Nothing easier than a 2 ingredient, no bake dessert!
- All this Oreo Icebox Cake recipe entails is arranging these svelte Oreos on a plate, topping them with billowy whipped cream and repeating.
- I sweetened my whipped cream slightly, but feel free to leave out the sugar as the Oreos will provide plenty of sweetness.
- The most difficult part of this recipe is stacking the Oreos to make a level cake. Start with 3 Oreo Thins in the middle of your plate, then add a ring of 9 Oreos around those. Pipe on whipped cream and repeat.
- Use a piping bag with a star tip to apply the whipped cream if you want a more formal looking dessert. Alternatively, spread the whipped cream over each layer with an offset spatula.
- Carefully eye ball each layer to make sure they’re level before adding the next! The chief Oreo eater in the house gave this cake his hearty approval.
