Sometimes I go a little overboard. Like, hey I love brownies! But plain? No way. (The husband cringes at that statement. I always want to put chocolate chips or something in my brownies and he only likes them super boring plain.)

Oreos? Um yes please, I’ll take the whole package. Hot fudge? Gotta have some of that.

Cookies and cream ice cream? My favorite. A little whipped topping for good measure? Yeah, why not.

And before you know it, I’ve got some crazy awesome brownie oreo ice cream bars. And I’m not complaining because these guys are g.o.o.d.

Yeah. Who knew so much chocolate dessert goodness could all go together and taste so dang good? These bars knew.

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 package fudge brownie mix + ingredients called for make certain the brownie mix is intended for a 9 x 13 pan!
  • 27 oreos separated (leave 3 for topping)

  • 1 container (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping completely thawed
  • Optional: parchment paper

Instructions

  • Coarsely chop all but 3 oreos. Place on top of the cooled brownies.
  • Warm the hot fudge for 30 seconds and then pour and smooth the hot fudge evenly over the brownies.
  • Place in the freezer for 10 minutes and remove the ice cream to soften a bit at this time.
  • Scoop large amounts of ice cream over the hot fudge. Evenly scoop out the entire container of ice cream over the hot fudge layer.
  • Smooth the ice cream down using a metal spatula until it is even. Freeze for 2 hours and preferably overnight.
  • Spread the whipped topping evenly over the ice cream and, if desired, garnish with three crushed up oreos (no need to remove the filling).
  • Cover and return to the freezer to 20-30 minutes.
  • Allow to sit out for a few minutes before slicing into bars.

  1. HELLO best thing to wake up to on a Monday morning. Seriously, I just woke up, and lying in bed perusing some of my fave blogs (you!) and am dying looking at this. Now if only I could convince myself to eat this for breakfast….

  2. Why would anyone want plain brownies when you can have fudge-oreo-ice-cream topped deliciousness??????? Seriously, Chelsea, you outdid yourself here – this has to be the msot delicious dessert I’ve ever seen! I’m so drooling right now 😉 x

  3. Oh my, I need these ice cream bars in my life! I love putting Oreos in brownies, so layering them up with some hot fudge and ice cream sounds like the best idea! They look fantastic. Have a good week, Chelsea! 🙂

  4. I love the photos you have of how this ice cream bar was made!! It looks crazy easy and impossible to stop eating!! Ice cream anything is the way to go in the summer. I usually reach for the cookies and cream so i’m all over this Chelsea! Thanks for sharing 🙂 Happy Monday!

  5. Whoa baby! These look crazy good Chelsea!

    haha my husband is the same way – he always gets mad at me whenever I make anything other than plain vanilla bean ice cream. Now don’t get me wrong, I love plain vanilla bean but I mean there are just so many other options out there!!

  6. Can you keep brownies in pan and just add the rest of ingredients? If not then when you take brownies out of pan, how do you keep everything together so it doesn’t melt. Also how would you cover this to put in freezer?

    1. Yes absolutely keep the brownies in the pan. When I say remove – I mean from the oven. Once the brownies are cooled and topped with everything I cover the 9 x 13 pan with tin foil and place it in the freezer. It freezes in the pan like that and then you can cut into bars once everything is frozen and return any leftovers to the freezer.

    1. Nope! It does well even after being frozen. I wouldn’t leave it in the freezer longer than a 2 days though because I could see it getting pretty hard after that.

    OMG, this looks amazing! I have a huge family party coming up, so I will definitely be making this! My only question is that do the oreos become soft after putting the hot fudge topping? Or will they stay hard, because they are put in the freezer?

    1. I don’t know how helpful this answer is, but kind of both. They aren’t like soggy since they are frozen, but they aren’t super hard like eating an oreo plain would be.

    My daughter wants this “cake” for her birthday, and pinned it to her birthday board on Pinterest. Before reading your post, I thought I might layer this in a spring form pan and then coat in whipped cream and sprinkles to give it a more festive look. When you made it this way, did you have a brownie bottom, oreo, fudge, ice-cream middle and then another brownie on top, or did you layer it a different way?

    1. Hey Cassie! I actually did it the first way — brownie bottom, oreo, fudge, ice cream, and whipped topping. Hope that helps!

  9. Hi Chelsea! How long did you have to leave this in the freezer for? I am thinking about making it for father’s day but have limited time so wanted to check. Thanks!

    1. I’d say at least 6-8 hours, it really depends on how melty the ice cream gets and how cold your freezer is 🙂 I hope that helps!

    Made this for the 4th of July and it got rave reviews! Only change I would make the next time is to cut up the Oreos before layering them on top of the brownie, because after frozen, they were difficult to cut through. Didn’t stop us from devouring the whole pan but would certainly allow us to shovel it in our mouths more quickly next time! 😉

    1. Thanks so much for the comment Kergie! 🙂 I’m so thrilled it got rave reviews!! And that is a great idea to cut up the oreos! 🙂

  11. So excited to make this! My brownie box says to use two boxes of brownie mix for a 9x 13 pan. Did you use one so its makes for a thinner layer?

    1. As long as the mix is around 18.4 ounces it will be great in a 9 x 13 🙂 And yes, you’re correct, its supposed to be thinner for all the other layers 🙂

  12. 4 stars
    I agree with Kergie. It was very difficult to cut, but we loved it anyway. I am making this for my grandson’s birthday (he requested it – he’s going to be 7!) but this time I am going to use mini oreos so it will be easier to cut. I will let you know how that goes!

    1. I think the mini oreos are a great idea! Or even chopping up regular sized ones could help and make it easier to cut 🙂 So happy you enjoyed it and are making it again for your grandson! Happy birthday to him!

    This didn’t work out so well for me. The brownies and oreo cookies were hard has rocks once frozen and the ice-cream never refroze enough to cut properly–so it was an oozing mess. Tasty, but messy. Once the brownies and cookies thawed, it was a good base to add more ice cream…I just wished I had made brownie cookie sundaes instead!

    1. I’m so sorry to hear that Remi! It sounds like the ice cream might have gotten too melty or didn’t refreeze for long enough. Did you use a lower calorie or fat free ice cream?

    1. Yes, after making these so many times, I’ve found it’s best (cuts easier and more cookie per bite) with the cookies chopped! Thanks for the question!

  14. Hey Again!

    So, these were absolutely amazing but I have one more question. I had a little trouble getting the brownie to come up from the pan when I cut them. Do you think it ended up too thin? or froze too long? Just curious.

    Either way they were great!!

    I made them for my husband’s birthday! and he loved them.

    1. I’m so happy your husband enjoyed them! It seems like maybe the brownies were a little over-baked; if you make these again pull them out 2-4 minutes earlier and they should be great!
