Easy Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches

Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches

Okay, I almost feel silly posting this. It’s sooo so easy, but it makes me way happy when I bite into one that I can’t resist.

It’s the simple things sometimes you know.

I was at Bruster’s the other day getting some ice cream and this poster was staring me back in the face.

Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches

Umm duh!! Why have I never ever done this before? And why am I not at the grocery store buying a bunch of Oreos right now.

Side note – Is it bad when the teenager at Bruster’s knows my order when I walk up and he finishes my sentence before I do? What about when the new guy that I’ve never met before knows my order. Is that bad? I’m thinking so. That or either I’m helping inspire great customer service.

Either way, I’m way too excited for this easy ice cream treat. I didn’t try any of them at Bruster’s (I stuck to my regular order of course) so I don’t know if theirs are special larger size Oreos made just for them or if they just use the regular cookies.

But I vote regular cookies. Small and cute ice cream cookie sandwiches. Yes, please.

Okay, this is hard. Please pay close attention.



Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches

Ice cream.



Cookies and Cream

Yum! … and done.

Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches

Just use a 1.5-inch scoop to place ice cream in between the separated cookies and press.

Life. Changed.

Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches

Rock and roll them in some sprinkles. Pretty and sweet.


The fun part is having a few flavors to play with. Chocolate is mandatory for me.
And these are totally fun for kiddos, too. Perfect portion-size treats.

You can make a bunch in advance and wrap them in wax paper so you can grab one from the freezer and go when the mood strikes.

Chocolate Sprinkles

Triple chocolate treats. I like.

Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches

Now take a load off, smile and go make yourself something sweet and easy!

I’m having company tomorrow night and I was trying to figure out what to make for dessert. I think we have a winner!

I’m heading out to the grocery store to buy oreos and ice cream. Waaah!

Oh my goodness!! So easy, but it’s completely ingenious! Thinking I know exactly what to do with my homemade icecreams, that I have become a little ott in making! Or of course to save on time just going to the store! ;0)

These remind me of a dessert TGI Fridays used to serve in the mid 90’s :) I love you’re smaller (and cuter!) version!

July 9, 2013 05:58 AM
Elaine DiSanto said...

Is it bad that I ALWAYS have all the ingredients on hand to make these?
I know what we’re making this afternoon now…

Why haven’t I done this before?! I’ve used mini waffles. Such a cute idea…my son will love it! And I just made cookies & cream ice cream yesterday!

Cristina said...

Ha! I’m wondering why I’ve never thought of this either. Like.. never even crossed my mind. They’re adorable. Thanks for posting the idea!

Wendy said...

Yay!! I actually just made these last week – I found some Oreos hiding in the back of the pantry (I may or may not have been the one to hide them there) and I wanted to share them with company without just patting a bunch of Oreos on a plate :) I only had mint choc chip ice cream but they were delicious and people thought I had bought them that way :)

These are dangerous! Woohoo, my favorite cookie taken to the next level! :D

Made With Pink said...

Those are amazing! I just had a major “why didn’t I think of that” moment! We did have a very similar thing when I was growing up in Canada, the Oreos were much softer (more like a regular ice cream sandwich cookie) and bigger (about 4-5 inches wide). They were delicious and came filled with cookies and cream ice cream. They were definitley one of my favourite summertime snacks.

Duh, I could’a had a…. Oreo Ice Cream Sandwich!!!

So, you’re saying that you’re like the Norm Peterson of Bruster’s? ;)

These are just totally and completely adorable! I’m absolutely making them next time the kiddo has his buddies over. I think you’ll win me the “cool mom” award. I’ll be sure to give you all of the credit.

Bakerella said...

Thanks so much guys!!!!

Kari V – I know, right!

Heather of Kitchen Concoctions – 1 pint Chocolate Raspberry Truffle. 1 pint White Turtle. 4 waffle cones. To go. But I promise I don’t eat it all by myself. : )

Elaine DiSanto – Definitely not bad.

Monica – Perfect!

Stevi -Uhhhhgh. That’s the best. I just tweeted that name. Thanks.

Wendy – so fun right.

Made with Pink – I’m suspecting that’s what Bruster’s is using. Something a little softer. I may be forced to investigate.

mindy1 – no problem.

July 9, 2013 01:57 PM
Bakerella said...

bridget – just call me norm from now on.

sharmie said...

this sounds awesome but i have one question… how do you ensure you don’t snap the cookies in half when you open them up? i sometimes have that problem with oreos…

July 9, 2013 03:49 PM
Krysta said...

Great idea! And easy. Thanks!!

July 9, 2013 04:43 PM
debbie said...

luv this idea….planning a party and was wondering if anyone made these and froze them for future use(after you have a taste test of course). do the cookies get soggy? any hints or storage suggestions

July 9, 2013 05:54 PM
Trina Bagley said...

Cold Stone Creamery used to do yummy Oreo cookie ice cream sandwiches like the one you pictured from Brusters. They used larger versions of a real Oreo and even had Oreo Creme ice cream inside. Yummy!!! I think you may still be able to get the Oreo Creme ice cream, but I don’t know if they still make the sandwiches.

Monica said...

Hi again – I “made” some this morning after seeing this. Used homemade cookies & cream ice cream (meant to be). My 8-yr old got such a kick out of it and loved them! He was like “these are so good…I want more!” Really adorable, fun, and easy. Thanks again, Bakerella!

July 9, 2013 09:42 PM
Bakerella said...

Sharmie – I give a little twist instead of separate.

debbie – I did freeze some but I haven’t had them in their long enough for a good answer.

Monica – YAYAYAYAY! Makes me happy.

July 9, 2013 10:22 PM
greenwick said...

Easy and clever! I want to try doing this with sherbert and some lemon sandwich cookies. I think raspberry sherbert lemon sandwich cookies would be to die for right now!

July 9, 2013 10:52 PM
Islandbella said...

Hi! Do you scrape off the Oreo filling or place ice cream on top of that?

Thanks :)

Crazy decadence! And yes, why hadn’t I thought of that before? Joy the Baker made some with Ritz. Just silly easy but so good.

I love these. I will have to make them with some other kind of sandwich cookie, but I’m due to make more ice cream anyway!

July 10, 2013 01:02 PM
JoAnn said...

What kind (brand) of chocolate sprinkles are those? I’ve never seen that shape before and they look awesome.

HAVE YOU NO SHAME!!!! This is so easy its absolutely ridiculous. Keep it coming

July 10, 2013 02:51 PM
Janelle said...

Hi! :)
I was just wondering if you could also dip these in a chocolate coating and freeze? Or would the warm melty chocolate melt the ice cream to fast?
Just curious!

Is it bad that I was excited when I saw the cookies and cream ice cream inside the oreo??? It is like an oreo in an oreo!

I love it!

Oh my gosh! I also saw that poster and I paid no attention to it! And these are super easy to make. The kids are going to freak! We just love oreos for snacks. I’m going to run down to the grocery for some very quick shopping. Thank you so much for (figuratively) hitting me with this post).

I love this–so simple and cool for summer! And since you asked us what we had done fun this summer, I went to San Antonio with friends to tour the Alamo, do some Riverwalking, and support one of our friends whose daughter is a survivor of childhood cancer at the “46 Mommas Shave for the Brave” event!

This would be so great for a dinner party! “Make your own ice cream sandwich” for dessert. Thanks for the idea!

July 25, 2013 09:18 AM
Sarah said...

No hate to Oreos, but have you tried the Trader Joe’s version of the sandwich cookie, the “Joe-Joe”? The cookie is a little softer and the filling is so good with vanilla bean in it. The bonus is while you’re gorging on cookies, it’s justified as they’re all natural. Paired with super rich chocolate ice cream…I’m definitely getting some now.

July 27, 2013 12:30 AM
Skazka Vostoka said...

Well, that’s why I can not come up with such ideas? Or cook these delicious sandwiches? In any case, I want to go to the store and buy cookies and ice cream. Sem separately :)

I tried an oreo ice cream sandwich last night locally and it was to die for and yours looks every better! I can’t wait to try this. Would be ideal for a party or get together. Thanks!

Hillary @ Easy Peasy Kitchen said...

Holy cow. These look SO delicious. Your photography is gorgeous, too, which I think makes them look even more yummy! Then again, I am pregnant, so anything involving ice cream makes my mouth water these days!

Thanks so much for this yummy idea, we made them today and not only were they fun, they tasted GREAT! I made the mistake of softening my ice cream first…made a huge mess, haha! After I left it firm back up, it worked much better. The sprinkles were such a fun addition!

August 18, 2013 07:40 PM
