  • Becky says:

    My 10 YO grand daughter & I made this in September for her birthday. It was super easy & yummy!! She loved helping make it!

  • Whit says:

    Yum! My mom used to make this for my birthday cake every year growing up. She did cookies and cream ice cream, a layer of hot fudge and m&ms or whatever other candy was requested on top. The possibilities are endless!

  • Dawn says:

    I’m thanking the good Lord right now for letting me be born in the heat of July!!!! This will be my birthday cake this year.

  • Sheila says:

    We like to do this with mint chocolate chip ice cream (our personal favorite!). If we do this for a birthday cake, it’s easiest to put the candles in the cool whip while still thawed and then put it back in the freezer so the candles remain on the cake. Much harder to put candles in a frozen cool whip :). Now that we are gluten free, this cake is still easy, because we just use glutino oreo cookies and make sure the ice cream is gluten free and you are set!

  • My mom would make this dessert for our summer birthdays! We called it “Mud Pie” and used hot fudge instead of chocolate syrup. So delicious! I love Shelia’s idea of mint chocolate chip ice cream! Thanks for sharing, brought back fond memories! 😀

  • Jessica says:

    This looks fantastic and I think I could pull this off. 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!

    Wow! I got this recipe from my mom many years ago and have been making it with many flavors of ice cream-coffee’s our favorite. However, my mom’s recipe uses a whole stick of butter, unmelted and processed with the cookies. I’ve tried to decrease the butter over the years, but so far have only taken away 2 Tbsp. I’m excited that yours only uses 2 Tbsp. Are you sure that’s enough for a firm crust?

    • If you want a really firm crust, you’ll likely want to use more. Ours usually sort of mixes in and freezes with the ice cream, as you can see from the picture.

    • Laura says:

      Do you always use Oreos for the crust? I suppose one could substitute vanilla sandwich cookies or a graham cracker crust. Oreo crust sounds great with coffee ice cream!

  • LOL! Totally cracked me up that this recipe came right after a giveaway for Gathering Grains granola (in my email update). 😀
    All about balance, right? 😉

    I live in Australia, what is whipped topping, is that like a store bought frosting? Thank you, Lyn xx

  • Laura says:

    I just volunteered to bring ice cream cake to church for our community supper for the homeless. I think the homeless will be enjoying this instead!
