We all know Oreos are milk’s favorite cookie. We also know that Cool Whip makes everything taste better. So what happens when you combine milk-soaked Oreos with a buttload of Cool Whip?


And you don’t even need an oven. Just an icebox (which you can actually make yourself). Everyone wins.

Oreo Icebox Cake

  • Prep Time:15 minutes
  • Cook Time:4 hours
  • Total Time:4 hours and 15 minutes
  • Servings:7-10
  • Easy


  • 1 package Oreos
  • 2 12-oz. container Cool Whip
  • 2 cup Nutella
  • 1 glass milk
  • Step 1

    If you don’t have an icebox (wtf is an icebox, anyway?) make your own by emptying a desk drawer and lining it with tin foil. Or use any box-like container you wouldn’t mind filling with milky Oreos and Cool Whip.

  • Step 2

    Dunk each Oreo into a glass of milk for a few seconds until soft.

    #SpoonTip: Stick a fork into the cream filling and dunk in order to avoid soggy Oreo fingers. Ew. 

  • Step 3

    Lay Oreos side by side until you have covered the bottom of the “icebox.”

  • Step 4

    Spread a generous layer of Cool Whip on top of the Oreo layer until the Oreos are completely covered.

  • Step 5

    Repeat steps 3 and 4 until your cake has reached desired height (we did 3 layers of Oreos).

  • Step 6

    Refrigerate cake for about 4 hours.

  • Step 7

    Melt Nutella in the microwave for 45 seconds.

  • Step 8

    Place a ziplock bag into a cup or a glass and snip off a corner with a scissors to make the perfect piping bag.

  • Step 9

    Decorate yo’ cake.

  • Step 10

    DIG IN.
