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.

  1. What a great idea!!!

  2. I could see girls making this for a sleepover:@)

  3. my god…I wish I were younger and could simply dig into this heavenly cake without a 2nd thought on my waistline!

  4. What a creative way to use oreos! I haven’t had one in so many years, I can’t even recall the last time I had one! Did it slice neatly? Does the cream soften up the oreos so you can slice through easily? Looks like a fun dessert that kids can make too!

    • Hi, Eva,
      Yes, the Oreos soften up after a night in the refrigerator and it slices surprisingly well with a serrated knife. Not perfect slices, but good enough 🙂

  5. Ooooh I love your pick!!!! So funny we both chose an easier yet still delish recipe!!! 😘😘

  6. Hi Liz – simple and delicious! We have LOTS of OREO lovers at our house who would be delighted to have a slice of this on their dessert plate. Have a beautiful Easter week my friend!

  9. Michael Hirsch’s fave cookie: Oreos. And, that’s why I never became of competent cookie baker like you, Liz. He would have LOVED this dessert only he would have never gone for Oreo Thins. With him it would be All or Nothing. This does look pretty darn tasty, even I have to admit that.

  10. This is brilliant! Love all those oreos 🙂 I’ve never seen the thins but that would make me happy since I never loved the cream middle anyway – yummy!

  11. This is pretty dang perfect. Simple desserts are just the best! And Oreos. . .they’re just irresistible :). Have a great week, Liz!

  12. We have a similar ‘family recipe’ with chocolate wafers but they are much thinner and absobrs the moisture of the cream so cuts easily. Would love to see a slice cut from this cake! Look harder?

  13. What a fun cake! Would love to try this.

  22. This looks so simple to make and even more delicious to eat!

  23. So beautifully put together and sooo scrumptious looking…Since you’re using thin Oreos, it is less calories right?
