How To Make Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

  1. Line the pan with parchment paper or foil. This is important to easily get the cake out of the pan for cutting and serving.
  2. Once the pan is lined, we’ll layer ingredients: first ice cream sandwiches (see photo above!), next, ice cream, then one more layer of ice cream sandwiches, and another layer of ice cream.
  3. Right before serving, spread whipped cream over the whole cake and sprinkle crushed Oreos® on top.


To make Ice Cream Sandwich Cake in a 9×13-inch pan: For the larger size, you’ll need about 24 ice cream sandwiches, 1 and ½ containers of ice cream, and 2 containers of whipped cream.

  • 18 regular vanilla ice cream sandwiches unwrapped
  • 1 container (48 ounces or 3 pints) cookies and cream ice cream
  • 1 container (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping thawed to room temperature
  • 6-8 regular Oreo cookies (Note 1)


  • Line a 9-x-9-inch pan with parchment paper or foil (important for removal and slicing). Remove the ice cream from the freezer to soften slightly-- however, don't let the ice cream get melty or too soft.
  • Unwrap the ice cream sandwiches. Press 9 sandwiches onto the bottom of the pan. You'll need to cut 2 down a little for them to fit (see pictures in the post).
  • With a large spoon, spread half of the ice cream over the ice cream sandwiches.
  • Press 9 more sandwiches on top. Spread remaining ice cream over the sandwiches, pressing firmly down. Cover tightly and place in the freezer until layers are firm, about 1 hour.
  • Right before serving, remove the dessert from the freezer and spread the whipped topping over everything. Crush Oreos and sprinkle on top.
  • Cut and serve.
  • Immediately return any leftovers, covered tightly, to the freezer. Best enjoyed the same day it's made--the whipped cream becomes icy when it's frozen.


Recipe Notes

Note 1: Other toppings:Try a crushed candy bar (Heath, Skor, Butterfinger, etc) instead of the cookies, if desired.
