Oreo and Fudge Ice Cream Cake

Good morning! Christmas is over but the holiday season is still upon us. You may have family and friends still with you and you may be tired of baking.

How about a dessert that requires NO BAKING, is easy enough the kids could do it and is a great crowd pleaser?

I have just the ticket.

Oreo and Fudge Ice Cream doesn't that just make your taste buds go to dancing? Mine did as soon as I thought of it.

This is all you need to do:

1/2 cup fudge ice cream topping, warmed
8 oz tub of cool whip topping, thawed and divided
1 pkg chocolate flavored instant pudding mix
8 Oreo cookies
12 vanilla ice cream sandwich pie
12 x 24 sheet of foil

  1. Pour the fudge topping into a medium bowl. Stir in 1 cup of the cool whip with a whisk. Blend well and add the DRY pudding mix. Stir until well blended and the consistency of fudge. If it is too thick to stir, add 1/4 cup milk.
  2. Chop cookies into pieces and stir into the pudding mix. 
  3. Arrange 4 ice cream sandwiches side by side (laying flat long sides together) on a 24 x 12 sheet of foil. Top with half the pudding mixture. Repeat. you will have sandwiches, pudding, sandwiches, pudding, sandwiches.
  4. Frost the top and sides with the cool whip.
  5. Bring the foil up and double fold the ends, make a loosely sealed package.
  6. Freeze at least 4 hours before serving.
  7. let it stand at room temperature until it softens just enough to slice.
  8. makes 12 servings.
Here you can see the slice and layers

Chocolate Covered Giant Oreo Cookie Cake

Oreo's...either you love them OR... well something is wrong with you if you don't love them! HA

Seriously, we love Oreo's and anything with Oreo's. I have made probably a dozen different decadent desserts using this fabulous cookie over the last 2 years. I thought it was time to share a few.

Since making the first Oreo item, I have switched to using my own cake mix but the original recipes were made using a box mix. You can do either, it is entirely up to you.

My husband is an Oreo lover, so anytime I make a dessert using them, he is a happy man.

Chocolate Covered Giant Oreo Cookie Cake

1 box Ducan Hines Swiss Chocolate Cake mix
4 oz semi sweet baking chocolate
1/4 cup butter, cut up
1 pkg cream cheese, softened, 8 oz
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups cool whip, thawed
12 Oreo cookies, coarsely chopped
4 Oreo cookies coarsely crushed

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare and bake the cake mix as directed on the box using 2...9 inch round pans. Cool 5 minutes and remove from pans to cool completely on wire racks.

Melt chocolate and butter in a small pan. Stir until smooth and cool for 5 minutes.

Beat cream cheese and sugar in a bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. GENTLY stir in cool whip and 12 cookies.

Place 1 cake layer top side down, spread cream cheese mix and cover with 2nd cake top side up.
Spoon chocolate glaze over the top of the cake and top with the remaining 4 Oreo.

Let stand until set and store in fridge.

Graveyard Dessert

I am not a Halloween person, we have never decorated or celebrated with our kids or during our marriage. So this recipe may seem a little odd. I have loosened up over the years. I am still not a "Halloween" person per say but know that it is not going to kill me to have a little fun.

Our Foodie Friends Friday, is doing a "freaky Friday" and I needed a recipe. So, I adapted an old favorite. I am sure you are familiar with "dirt cups" or "flower pot cakes" it goes by all sorts of names.

I just decorated it this time for our FFF "FREAKY" link party! 

Graveyard Dessert

2 pkg of chocolate pudding, instant
3 cups cold milk
1/2 small container of whipped topping
1 pkg Oreo
chocolate graham crackers
nutter butter cookies
gummy worms
writing icing

I put my Oreo cookies into the food processor and turn them into a nice powder/dirt consistency.
Mix the milk with 2 pkg of pudding, allow it to sit for about 5 minutes and add the whipped topping.
Stir in 2/3 of the cookies.
Sprinkle a few crumbs in the bottom, pour the mixture on top.
Write RIP on the chocolate grahams.
Drizzle 'blood' on a few chocolate grahams.
Dip nutter butters in whipped topping, for ghost.
Stick worms into the ground.
Arrange the decorations.
Add remaining "dirt"
Chill and serve!!

Death By Oreos

Now let me ask you a question, do you love Oreos? Yes, then keep reading, if you are ehh on the whole Oreo debate, move on. These are for the die hard Oreo lover!!
This recipe I found on Just a Pinch website, a site I do dearly love! It was my addiction before Pinterest.

I have made these cupcakes dozens of times, and each time they get better and better, if that is possible.
Ingredients do matter, if you buy the cheap knock off brands, that works for somethings, but I have to say, if I spend the bucks and get the good stuff, these cupcakes are so good it'll make you slap yo' momma! Not really but almost!

1 pkg regular size Oreo
Duncan Hines Swiss Chocolate Cake mix (I have tried them all and this one has the best flavor)
8 oz Philadelphia cream cheese, room temp ( I use 4-6 oz)
8 TBSP no salt butter, room temp
3 3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract not flavoring
cupcake liners
1 pkg mini Oreo

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
Prepare cake mix according to package (do not bake yet)
line muffin/cupcake tin with liners
Drop 1 large Oreo in each liner bottom
Take 1/2 of remaining Oreos and place in a food processor and pulse into a crumb mix.
Stir this into your cake batter. NOW fill each liner 3/4 with batter/oreo mix. Bake for 15 minutes.

While these are baking prepare frosting.
Cream together your cream cheese ( have begun using 1/2 of what the recipe calls for as my family is not as fond of cream cheese) and butter. After this has been creamed together, you will take the remaining half of the Oreos and again make a crumb mix. Add this to the frosting. I place the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar and oreos in my food processor and blend until almost smooth. I like the extra chocolate flavor and color that this produces. The original recipe called for crushing them by hand and gently folding in after you have creamed the cc/ps/butter together. I have done this as well but prefer my way. I have also used flavored Oreos and used food coloring during holidays to change it up. They always taste great and are all eaten!

Once the cupcakes have baked and cooled, frost the cupcakes with Oreo frosting. 
For the 4th Oreo layer, top with a mini Oreo. Wa La Done!

Oreo on the bottom, in the mix, in the frosting and on top! YES Death By Oreo!!
