Oreo ice cream pie

It’s the end of summer and I can’t resist some good ole ice cream.  I had some friends coming over for dessert but they don’t eat eggs, so I was wracking my brain to figure out what to make when I remembered that…hey, ice cream doesn’t have eggs! At least, the stuff I bought didn’t. I was going to make a Snickers pie but it has egg whites in it…go figure. So after some investigating, I learned that Oreos are egg-free….perfect! This recipe turned out SO delicious…the best part is that it’s not too sweet like store-bought ice cream cakes and you can save some calories by using light ice cream and I promise no one will be able to tell! Cookies and cream heaven 🙂

 Oreo Ice Cream Pie

Ingredients:

Vanilla Ice Cream- room temp ( I used Kroger brand Vanilla Churned Light Ice cream, this stuff is so creamy and yummy)
Oreos – 1 package
Smuckers Special Recipe Milk Chocolate (but you can use fudge topping too)
Caramel Sauce Topping

Directions:

Take a 9inch springform pan and line it with plastic wrap till it hangs off the edges. Next place Oreos up against the edge of the pan (see photo) until you’ve covered the outside. Then, split open the Oreos and place them on the bottom…this will act as a crust.
Take a large bowl and spoon in some ice cream, add 1/4 cup fudge or to taste. Mix well.
Crush up some Oreos (Leave some crushed Oreos for the topping) and add to the ice cream mix. Make sure it all gets distributed well.
Spoon the ice cream into pan. Top with more crushed Oreos. Drizzle caramel over pie with fork.
Freeze for at least 6 hours. Open springform pan, peel plastic wrap off and serve immediately.

** You can also add nuts or caramel to the ice cream mix if you like.

Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie n’ Oreo Fudge Brownie Bar

Yes, I know….can it be any more decadent? The answer is yes….we added vanilla ice cream on top but the lite version….of course! After making these indulgent creations, I opted to go less fat with the ice cream but then again what’s the point? Its like adding a diet cola with a Big Mac…just enjoy the full fat meal and obsess later on the treadmill.
So I showed a photo of this recipe from kevinandamanda.com to my husband..and needless to say he drooled..alot. He asked me to make it for Fathers Day. I thought okay…better than making a full fledged dinner!

The image on the left is from the original recipe.

I was short on time, so I made my own version of it. I did not make chocolate chip cookie dough at home..I just bought the Nestle cookie dough log so this recipe literally took minutes to make and in my opinion, was still luscious enough to indulge anyone’s sweet tooth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients
Nestle Toll House chocolate chip cookie dough log
Double Stuffed Oreos
Smuckers Special Recipe Milk Chocolate Topping
Pillsbury Family Size Chocolate Fudge Brownie (you’ll need 2 eggs, oil and water) 

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 9×13 glass baking dish with wax paper. Mix brownie mix according to package directions and add1/3 cup Smuckers topping to the batter. Mix thoroughly.
Scoop cookie dough onto wax paper, using fingers to spread out evenly. Cover dough with Oreos. Top Oreos with all the brownie mix. Bake 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees.
I let the brownies cool a bit before eating but they do taste better warm so I zapped them in the microwave before hitting it with a big heap of vanilla ice cream. You could add nuts to your brownies or ice cream as a topping also. You could skip out on the Oreos and save yourself some calories too…it would still be delicious. Enjoy!
