Cookies and Cream Chocolate Ice Cream

IMG_9Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

Calling all cookies and cream fans. This chocolate ice cream cone is loaded with broken cookies in the ice cream and sprinkled with cookie crumbs in the cone. It’s an Oreo explosion in every bite.

Oreo Cookies

Okay, so you know you’ll need some Oreo cookies. You’ll also need sweetened condensed milk, heavy whipping cream, cocoa and vanilla. But that’s it.

Making Ice Cream

The best part about this recipe is that you don’t need to own an ice cream maker. You can whip everything together in just a few minutes and put in the freezer to firm up.

Crushed Oreos

The ice cream base is plain chocolate with crumbled cookies mixed in. But, feel free to switch up your add-ins for different combinations using your fave cookies or candies. Snickers ice cream anyone?

Ice Cream Containers

Once everything is mixed up, pour the mixture in a 9 X 5 loaf pan and freeze. Or use a long and narrow container like the one above. I love it. It’s great for scooping and I usually keep it stored in the freezer when I’m not using it.

Freeze the ice cream for a few hours and it’s ready to enjoy.

If you’re up for it, make your own waffle cones while the ice cream is chilling out in the freezer.

You’ll need a machine for these though.

Chocolate Waffle Cone Ingredients

For the waffle cone batter, I mixed in some melted chocolate and some finely crushed cookie crumbs.

Making Waffle Cones

It’s just like making a waffle. A super shallow waffle! (Here’s the machine I used) But then you get to roll and shape them. The fun part!!! And very satisfying.

So cool! Simple things make me happy.

  1. This recipe looked great at first! I had never attempted to make ice cream before. I also love anything with Oreos in it, so it seemed like a winner.

    I will say that the ice cream takes a good 8-9 hours to firm up. The flavor was there, but my friend and I thought it tasted a little too much like the heavy cream. Too buttery, and didn’t taste like a store-bought like I had hoped.

    If I were to make it again, I would use less heavy cream to even it out a bit. But for now, I’ll stick to Haagen-Dazs.

  2. This dish looks creamy and delicious. Pure comfort food for sure!

  3. oh so yummy

  4. so delicous Hmmmmm sweet

  5. Can I use bittersweet chocolate?

  6. This looks AMAZING!! I love cookies and cream!!Thanks for the recipe and I will definitely make it soon. 

  7. Thanks for another great recipe! I needed a recipe that I could make a day ahead, and this was perfect! I’d never made no-churn ice cream before, but it’s safe to say that I’ll be making it often from now on! It was a total success, and everyone loved it :)

  8. I feel like if I had the luck to live with you, I would stop losing weight because everything you make looks and sound SOOO delicious. And I’ll just stuff myself silly with cake pops, cupcakes, cakes, homemade icecream until I burst

  9. Made the ice cream portion of the recipe yesterday and it turned out fabulous. I lined my 5 X 9 pan with plastic wrap to easily remove the block of ice cream once it froze. I cut the block into 1/2″ slices and made ice cream sandwiches using a modified brownie recipe for the “cookie”. I plan to make a few variations of the ice cream using match (green tea) powder, expresso powder, and use chopped Heath bars, Reese’s pieces, or the new M & M caramels in place of Oreos. In my books, anything worth doing is worth “over-doing”! :)

  10. OMG that looks yummy :D
