Ingredients for Oreo Ice Cream Cake

  • Cookies: Crushed whole Oreos (including the filling) make a chocolatey crust. You can use any flavor of filled cookies.
  • Ice Cream: I use vanilla ice cream in this recipe, but you can use any flavor. Strawberry or mint chocolate chip are great options.
  • Fudge Sauce: The homemade fudge sauce has a thick consistency (thicker and chocolate syrup) and a rich chocolatey flavor. It’s easy to make and highly recommended in this recipe.
  • Toppings: Sprinkle some nuts, extra crushed cookies, toffee pieces, or mini M&M’s for an extra special celebration!


  • Use Nilla Wafers, golden Oreos, or thin mints instead of Oreos.
  • Turn it into a birthday cake with golden Oreos and sprinkles.
  • Layer in sliced strawberries, bananas, or blueberries in Step 3 before the fudge topping if desired.

Holly’s Tips

  • Remove the ice cream from the freezer to soften before preparing this cake.
  • Line the loaf pan (or a small cake pan) with parchment paper to make it easy to remove from the pan.
  • Remove the frozen cake from the pan by dipping the bottom in cold water for about 5 seconds, then lift it out using the parchment paper as handles.
  • To cut the cake, dip a sharp knife in hot water between each slice.

  • 33 Oreo cookies (13.29oz package)
  • 6 tablespoons butter melted
  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream softened (or your favorite flavor)
  • 8 ounces whipped topping such as Cool Whip, or as needded
  • 2 cups 5 Minute Fudge Sauce or store bought hot fudge sauce


  • If making homemade fudge sauce, prepare the sauce according to the recipe directions and cool to room temperature.
  • Line a 9×5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper, leaving some parchment overhanging the sides.
  • Remove the ice cream from the freezer to soften about 10 minutes before assembling the cake.
  • Add the Oreos to a freezer bag (including the cream center) and crush with a rolling pin until they're the size of small peas. Alternatively, you can pulse them a few times in a food processor.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the crushed Oreos and melted butter.
  • Add 1½ cups of the Oreo mixture into the loaf pan and press to create a crust.
  • Spread half of the ice cream over the Oreo base. Drizzle ¾ cup of fudge sauce over the ice cream layer and sprinkle with ⅔ cup of the crushed Oreo mixture. Repeat layers once more.
  • Top with Cool Whip & remaining Oreo crumbs. Freeze 4 hours or overnight.
  • To remove the cake, dip the pan in hot water for 5 seconds and lift the cake out using the parchment paper. Slice and serve with the remaining fudge sauce.


  • Use any flavor of ice cream.
  • An offset spatula is a great way to spread the ice cream.

  1. I have a question on the Oreo fudge ice cream cake and I don’t know how to get the question answered but if I make my own fudge sauce she says to use chocolate chips, but is that semi sweet ?milk chocolate? I’m not sure?
