Tastes like a DQ Cake and the kids loved it! Might want to make more than one. It was gone in a flash.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This no-bake ice cream cake is so easy to throw together. It reminds us of a cake you'd pick up at the ice cream shop. Ice cream sandwiches are the base of the cake. It's filled with a chocolate Oreo pudding filling. Creamy Cool Whip is the frosting. The hardest part of this quick and easy dessert is waiting for the cake to freeze. Serve with a drizzle of chocolate syrup for a summertime dessert your family will request again and again. You could also add a little caramel sauce between the layers. Sweet, creamy, crunchy... what more could you ask for?!

How To Make oreo and fudge ice cream cake

  • Whisking together hot fudge and whipped topping.
    In a medium bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup warmed hot fudge and 1 cup of whipped topping. Mix well until blended.
  • Stirring in the pudding mix.
    Add dry pudding mix and stir until blended.
  • Adding milk until mixture is smooth.
    Stir in 1/4 cup of milk and mix until smooth. The consistency of this needs to be spreadable. If it is still too thick, mix a little more milk.
  • Folding in chopped Oreos.
    Fold in chopped cookies.
  • Four ice cream sandwiches on a piece of aluminum foil.
    Arrange 4 ice cream sandwiches on a piece of foil measuring approximately 12 x 24.
  • A layer of pudding mixture added and four more ice cream sandwiches on top.
    Spread half of the pudding mixture on top of the four ice cream sandwiches. Then top with four more ice cream sandwiches.
  • Layers repeated.
    Repeat the process by adding the rest of the pudding mixture and top it with the remaining four ice cream sandwiches.
  • Cake frosted with whipped topping.
    Frost the top and sides with remaining whipped topping. Bring up the sides of the foil and make a loose pouch. Don't stress if the foil touches the whipped topping. Freeze at least 4-6 hours before serving.
  • Frosted with more whipped topping and crushed Oreos added.
    Optional for Serving: Take the cake out of the freezer and put a thin layer of Cool Whip on the outside. Add crushed cookies on top. Place back in the freezer for 30 minutes before slicing.
