Yes, you read that right. Oreo… Ice cream… Roll. Does it get much better than that? I don’t think so. Here is everything you need to bring this epic dessert from your dreams right down to your kitchen table.
What you need:
- 1 (18 1/4 ounce) package of chocolate cake mix
- 3 eggs (or however many your cake mix needs)
- 1⁄3 cup oil
- 1 1⁄3 cups water
- 2 cups softened vanilla ice cream
- 20 Oreo cookies (+some extras for a little snack here and there)
- 1⁄2 cup powdered sugar, as decoration
- 1 kitchen towel
What to do:
- Grease and lightly flour a 15 by 10 inch jelly roll pan.
- Prepare chocolate cake mix by direction on the box.
- Pour your chocolate cake mixture evenly into the jelly roll pan.
- Spread out your kitchen towel and sprinkle it lightly with the powdered sugar.
- Bake your cake 12 -15 minutes. (Old secret: stick a toothpick in the middle of your cake. If it comes out clean, the cake is done. If it comes out with batter on it the cake still needs a little bit of baking time)
- Remove cake from oven and immediately loosen every edge of cake and turn it over into the towel.
- Roll the cake up from short end to short end inside the towel, jelly roll style.
- Hang towel/cake on wire rack until it’s completely cool. Give it between 45 minutes to an hour but don’t forget about it!
- Place 15 Oreo cookies inside of a ziplock bag and bang away! You can use a rolling pin or meat mallet but make sure the cookies are nice and crumbled.
- Unroll cake from the towel. Spread the softened ice cream. Top it off with crushed cookie topping.
- Carefully roll cake back up (without the towel) and transfer it onto your serving plate.
- Let the cake cool down in the freezer. Store for at least 2 hours.
- When serving, line the cake with the leftover Oreos (if you didn’t eat them all) and sprinkle the powdered sugar pretty much everywhere.
And voila! Enjoy.
*Extra Tip:* If you want, you can add some of the crushed up cookies to the cake mix and have Oreos INSIDE the ice cream cake as well!
