Items you’ll need for this recipe
* Peanut Butter * Oreo Cookies * 9 x 9 pan *
Peanut Butter Oreo Icebox Cake
- 2 packages of Oreo cookies
- 2 cups milk
- chocolate syrup (to drizzle)
Peanut Butter Cream
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 package cream cheese (8 Ounce) softened
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- ¼ cup milk
- 1 package Cool Whip (8 Ounce) thawed
Peanut Butter Cream
- With an electric mixer, cream together cream cheese, ¼ cup of milk and peanut butter
- Add Powdered Sugar and mix until blended and then beat until smooth
- Add cool whip and mix on low just until mixed
- Pour milk into a bowl
- Dip Oreo cookies into the milk for about 2-3 seconds on each side. You want them wet but not falling apart.
- Line the bottom of a 9x9 pan with "milk soaked Oreos". I did have to break some of the cookies in half to fit to the edge
- Top with ½ of the Peanut Butter Cream
- Repeat one more layer of cookies and Peanut butter cream
- Cover with plastic wrap (I stick toothpicks in the cake before putting on the wrap so it doesn't stick to the cake)
- Refrigerate at least 4 hours (overnight is best)
- Drizzle with Chocolate Syrup and serve with a glass of milk
