I went to a fun party last week—lots of my friends were there and it was great to have a chance to catch up and see how everyone’s summer was going.
We all brought food to share, which was fun because it gave us all a chance to sample different kinds of food. And it was scrumptious—from entrees to hors d'oeuvres, to desserts.
I was having my a/c units and furnace replaced, though. My ailing units had finally bitten the dust and the installation of the new equipment was a three day process.
So turning on the oven when it was already 95 degrees in my house? Not an option.
And, really, all I could think about was something cool. Cool—like frozen. That’s when I pulled out my recipe for…
Oreo Ice Cream Cake
1 large package of Oreos (crushed)
1/2 gallon of softened vanilla ice cream
chopped pecans (I used most of a small bag)
1 carton of Cool whip (I softened it a little to make it easier to spread)
Chocolate syrup (as much as you want. I probably used 3/4 of a cup)
Place the crushed cookies in the bottom of a long pan or dish. Spread the softened ice cream over the cookies. Spread Cool Whip over the ice cream for the next layer. Sprinkle the nuts over the Cool Whip, then drizzle with chocolate syrup. Keep in the freezer until ready to serve.
It was a hit! And I didn’t even have to turn on the oven. :)
