How to make Oreo icebox cake:

  • Step 1. Dip the cookies in milk. Dip approximately 30 Oreo cookies in milk and place them side by side in a 9X13 pan.

How long can you keep Oreo icebox cake?

Typically 2-3 days. The cake will become very mushy after a while. 

You do not want to make this too far in advance.

Storing tips

Cover the pan with plastic wrap or a lid. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Variations

  • Homemade whipped topping. Instead of store-bought whipped cream, you can use heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar to make homemade. Beat until stiff peaks form.
  • Oreo Cookies. You can use double stuff or try other flavors. Golden Oreo, peanut butter, chocolate, lemon, and more would be delicious.
  • Topping. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top of the dessert for more chocolate flavor. Other ideas include chopped nuts, caramel syrup, and chocolate syrup.
  • Double the recipe. We love to double the recipe and prepare this in a trifle dish. The layers are so pretty and make an easy yet gorgeous dessert.
  • Gluten-free option. Just use gluten-free Oreo cookies in this recipe if you need to make it gluten-free. This is an easy substitute if you have dietary needs.

Recipe tips

  • Chill at least 4 hours. This dessert is best served after it has been refrigerated at least 4 hours. We prefer overnight for best taste as this gives the cookies plenty of time to soak in the whipped cream.
  • Freeze to get clean slices. Right before serving, put the dessert in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes and it will be nice and firm. This will make it super easy to cut into nice clean slices for serving.
  • Make in advance. This dish is perfect to make in advance. I usually make it a day before I play to serve it. It tastes even better with the softened cookies layered together.

Frequently asked questions

Can I use homemade whipped cream instead of cool whip?

Yes, homemade whipped cream can be substituted for store bought. Either option will be delicious in this recipe.

Can I make this ahead of time?

This can be made in advance up to 1 day. You do not want to prepare it too early or it will get very mushy. However, it is best made up to a day in advance to give the cookies time to soften.

Can I use double stuffed Oreos?

Double stuffed Oreos can be used in this recipe if you love all the extra cream. It is a tasty variation to try.

Can I I use a different pan?

Sure! The 9×13 size works perfectly for this recipe but feel free to try other ideas. You can use a trifle dish to display those gorgeous layers.

We do recommend doubling the recipe if you plan to use a trifle dish.
