A couple of weeks ago I was in charge of a dinner for the young men/ young women in our ward. We also invited some senior couples in the ward for the youth to get to know. So we were planning on about a hundred people attending. (Yes, I was kind of a basketcase that week.)

We had Cafe Rio Pork Burritos for dinner, because I knew that they are a huge crowd pleaser. I wanted a dessert that was easy to prepare for a large crowd, but that went beyond the brownies with ice cream that is typically served. I had several packages of Oreos left over from a previous activity, so I decided to use them in something. My Mint Oreo Ice Cream Pie came to mind, but I didn’t want to have to make 10 pies. (Who has that many pie pans?)

I came up with this Frozen Oreo Dessert, and let me tell you, it was a HUGE hit. I had so many people request the recipe that I decided I’d better share it here. It is embarrassingly easy. But it really is amazingly yummy! Since I was feeding a large crowd, I actually doubled the recipe and made it in large jelly roll pans. It worked great!

I actually made two varieties, Cookies & Cream (which is pictured here), and Chocolate Chip Mint. The mint was more popular, which is why this one was leftover and I was able to get a photo of it the next day. Both are delicious! And who doesn’t love ice cream and Oreos?!

Frozen Oreo Dessert

1/4 cup butter, melted
1 package of Oreos, finely crushed (I used my food processor)

1/2 gallon of ice cream (Cookies & Cream & Chocolate Chip Mint are yummy)
Hot fudge sauce

Combine melted butter and Oreo crumbs till well mixed. Press just over half of the crumbs into a 9×13″ pan. Place in the freezer. Take ice cream out of the freezer and let soften. I stirred mine up about every 15 minutes till it was spreadable. Spread softened ice cream on top of frozen crust. Sprinkle remaining crumbs on top. Cover and freeze for several hours or till firm.

Remove from freezer 15 minutes before serving. Cut into squares and drizzle with hot fudge sauce.

-Serves 16-20

  1. does it melt quickly ?
    does it need to be in the freezer frequently?

    Hey! This recipe is a chocoholic’s dream!! But I had a small question…what do you mean by gallon? Could you give me the measure according to kilograms? Because in Kuwait, they dont print in gallons


    • Sorry, since I live in the US I have no idea how many kilograms of ice cream are in a gallon. The recipe doesn’t need an exact amount, you can just use enough ice cream till you have it as thick as you like. Good luck!

  3. Hi, how many cookies are there in 1 package? Here in the Philippines we have different sizes/quantity in 1 package.

    Hi Kara,
    I’m kind of late coming in with recipe questions, but hoping to make your delicious looking dessert tonight! Did you actually process a package of Oreos, cream included, or just the cookie portion? (I feel like I’ve seen package Oreo crumbs before, but if you did the entire oreo, that wouldn’t be the same at all!) I’m referring to your Frozen Oreo Dessert…
    Thanks, Kate

    • Kate, I used the whole Oreo, cream and all. Sorry I didn’t see your question yesterday. Hope it worked out!

    • We tried to find oreo cookie crumbs or just the actual cookie without cream filling. They don’t make then anymore.

  5. YUMM! I wish I had some right now 🙂
