I love the idea of serving ice cream in fun ways. And this one is just that.
A fun and easy no-bake mint chip ice cream cake!
Yes and yum!
And it doesn’t hurt that it’s stuffed with mint Oreo cookies either.
They’re in the crust, in the “cake” and on top too.
Want to make one?
Okay good! First chop up some of the cookies for the crust.
Mix the crumbs with melted butter and then press into the bottom of a 7-inch springform pan. But first cover the bottom section of the pan with plastic wrap before securing the ring on top. It will make it easier to transfer the cake to a plate when you’re ready to serve.
Time for the ice cream. You can use your favorite flavor. I’m going with mint chip today.
It’s not my fave…my first choice would be chocolate of course… but it’s a fun flavor for St. Patrick’s Day.
Spread a layer of ice cream on top of the cookie crust base.
Add in some oreos and then layer on more ice cream almost to the top edge of the pan.
Then layer on some whipped topping and place in the freezer for at least three hours.
Note: Next time I would break all the cookies into pieces to make the cake easier to cut.
When you are ready to serve, unclasp the springform ring to slide it off from around the cake.
Then just separate the plastic wrap from the base to serve.
Add some more oreos on top and you are ready to go.
And bite! Easy as pie… I mean ice cream cake!
