Icebox Cake Recipe

If you like Oreo's you are going to love this icebox cake because it tastes like a giant Oreo Cookie. Only it's better! It's a no-bake delicious cake thats easy to make.
Servings 12 Slices


  • 3 Packages of Oreo’s to make 14 cookie layers. You'll need 84 Oreo Cookies divided for a total of 168 cookies.
  • If you only want to use 2 packages of cookies instead of 3 you will need 78 cookies divided for a total of 156 Oreo Cookies which will make 13 layers of cookies. 
  • 8 ounces of cold cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 cups of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract


  • Remove the cream filling from the Oreo Cookies and set them aside.
  • Place the cold cream cheese in the bowl of an electric mixer.
  • Add the granulated sugar and mix with the whisk attachment for about a minute.
  • Scrape the sides  of the bowl and add the cream filling from the Oreo Cookies.
  • Mix until combined.
  • Add the heavy whipping cream and mix on low speed until it starts to thicken.
  • Add the powdered sugar and vanilla.
  • Mix until it's thick.
  • Place a layer of the whipped cream on the bottom of a cake stand. Make a circle with nine Oreo Cookies on the outside and three cookies on the inside of the circle. 
  • Add another layer of the whipped cream frosting to the top of the Oreo’s and spread it until the layer is even.
  • Add nine more Oreo’s to the outer layer and three in the middle staggering the cookies so the cake will be strong and look pretty.
  • Repeat until you have a nice tall Oreo Icebox Cake. I used twelve cookies for each layer and there are fourteen cookie layers. That's about 168 cookie halves which is 84 Oreo cookies. 
  • Once you reach the fourteenth layer, add the whipped cream and make a pretty design on the top.
  • Chill in the fridge six hours or overnight.
  • Keep chilled.
