Oreo Ice Cream

The whole darn family loves Oreos, so when summer hit this year, it was no surprise that I made Oreo Ice Cream! Guess what? They inhaled it!

Oreo Ice Cream Made with Mega-Stuf Oreos

A couple weeks ago, Bill, Katie, and Nick headed to Illinois to visit his mom. I’d been in Orlando and then Denver, so I relished the chance to stay home alone for a couple nights. Well, there is always a sweet treat waiting at my mother-in-law’s house. Whether it’s freshly baked brownies or cookies or store bought Chips Ahoy, Oreos or ice cream, we all indulge in a  little nibble after dinner. This time, Jane had Mega-Stuf Oreos for her visitors. When I heard about them, I knew they’d perfect for my cookies and cream ice cream which ultimately became this Oreo Ice Cream. Welcome to Day 4 of Ice Cream Week 2014!

Stock Up on Oreos!

Oreos have always been a stock item in our pantry. But, frankly, I have never been a fan. As a child, we’d make our own Double-Stuf Oreos by pressing together two twisted apart halves with filling still attached. And I only ate the cookie part to be polite. I definitely preferred the filling.

Later I did discover I enjoyed a chocolate cookie pie crust, so that became my excuse to have these filled sandwich cookies in the house. But our three children took after their father, and will always gravitate towards our tin of Oreo cookies when there’s no homemade treat to be found. When I heard about the new breed with even more filling, I thought they’d be wonderful in ice cream. And when Bill did a taste test, he confirmed my prediction.

Luscious vanilla ice cream with chunks of Oreo cookies

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Yield 1 quart


  • 5 egg yolks
  • ½ cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 1¾ cups heavy cream
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1¼ cups chopped Oreo cookies (I used 10 Mega-Stuf, you will need more regular Oreos)


  1. Whisk together the egg yolks and ¼ cup of the sugar in a large Pyrex measuring cup or heatproof bowl; set aside.
  2. Heat the remaining ¼ cup of sugar, cream, milk and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. When the mixture begins to simmer, slowly drizzle 1/2 cup into the egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly. Repeat with another 1/2 cup of hot cream, still whisking constantly, then add the egg mixture back to the saucepan, whisking continuously.
  3. Continue to stir the mixture over medium heat until the mixture thickens, about 1-2 minutes.Pour the custard through the strainer into a clean bowl and stir in the vanilla extract. Place the bowl in an ice bath (I fill the sink with ice and water), stirring occasionally, until the mixture reaches room temperature. Cover the bowl and place the mixture in the refrigerator and chill at least 2 hours, or overnight.
  4. Freeze the ice cream in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Once the ice cream is ready, scoop a third of it into a freezer safe container, top with half the chopped cookies and repeat. Top cookies with last 1/3 of ice cream. You may eat immediately or freeze 4 more hours for firmer ice cream.

  9. This looks amazing! I love oreo ice cream! But I think my favorite ice cream that I have ever tried was bailey’s brownie cheesecake. I mean…come ON!

  10. Yum! I really should make this with the Reese’s Oreos that I still have yet to figure out how best to use them.

  11. Looks delicious and this would be great recipe to try!

  12. Wow, you’re making ice cream from scratch! I bet it’s so good! Especially with the addition of Oreos!

  17. always a classic!!! Love how your oreo ice cream turned out!

  18. Lizzy,
    This is one of my two favorite ice creams. The Mega Stuff seems like what I remember Double Stuff being. They’ve been chintzy with the filling and of course the number of cookies in the bag are much fewer nowadays. I always preferred the center to the cookies too.

  19. Love this combination, great presentation!!

  20. One of the best ice cream recipes, Liz. They look divine!

  21. Yesterday I saw your ice cream in FB and I loved it! I think my children will love as well 😉

  22. We don’t have Megastuff here in Australia but I reckon I could use the plain ordinary kind and be very happy indeed. 🙂

  23. How did I miss this?! Oreos are my crack. I will fight like a gladiator over the last cookie. This ice cream looks so delicious!!

  24. When I was a kid, I never made double stuffed Oreos. I just ate the chocolate parts quickly to get them out of the way and then rolled the fillings in a big ball and slowly nibbled at it till it was gone. Good times. Your ice cream seems like a much better use of an Oreo, Liz. 🙂

  25. Ice cream is my favorite treat especially homemade 🙂 This oreo one looks incredible Liz!

  26. My kids would love this ice cream!

  27. Your ice creams always look amazing. This one is no exception!

  28. My daughter lately is an Oreo freak, I have to monitor that closely. She would adore this!!

  29. YUMMMMM.
    Is this low-fat?!! xxx

  30. And me with a plethora of egg yolks in the fridge!
