Oreo peanut butter pie is definitely the solution to all problems.
I mean, look at that! How could it not be? Peanut butter mousse on top of crunchy chocolate crust and cloud-like whipped cream. I can’t handle it!
I’ve been prepping all my recipes for the blog for summer already – for when the baby comes! And let’s just say that peanut butter oreo may be a verrrrry common theme. A few weeks ago I became obsessed with the combo and now I’m convinced it was meant to be because I had an oreo peanut butter milkshake last week. That has to mean something, right?!
Needless to say, I made this oreo version of my favorite peanut butter pie a few weeks ago and oh my gosh. It is heaven.
You may remember a few years ago when I shared Mother Lovett’s peanut butter pie! She made peanut butter pie with a classic pie crust – always. While I would normally gravitate towards a crumb crust of sorts – be it graham or oreo – her flakey, buttery pie crust was the base for hers.
It was mind blowing when I was a kid because the inside tasted just like a really good peanut butter cup.
I mean, SO GOOD.
But still, since I’m not a baker at heart, I always want a crumb crust. I am the person that would rather have bites of the crust than the actual pie. Especially an oreo crust! I’ve been making pies with oreo crusts since I was a tween and they are just a nostalgic, delicious treat.
Not to mention – the chocolate peanut butter combo!
There will NEVER be another flavor combination that I love more. It’s so classically rich and decadent, one I love so much. It is always the flavor I will choose.
That’s how I found myself here!
We have a crunchy oreo crust. A creamy, mousse-like peanut butter filling that is, of course, no bake. Just requires some chilling time in the fridge to set up perfectly. (more…)

Cue all the exclamation points: coffee oreo ice cream is here!! YES I did say coffee oreo ice cream. Oh my gosh. I don’t need any other dessert for the rest of the summer. One might surmise that I’m just a weeeee bit obsessed with coffee ice cream. I’ve rambled on and on about it […]
Cue all the exclamation points: coffee oreo ice cream is here!!
YES I did say coffee oreo ice cream. Oh my gosh.
I don’t need any other dessert for the rest of the summer.
One might surmise that I’m just a weeeee bit obsessed with coffee ice cream. I’ve rambled on and on about it before, but long (like, LONG) before I ever loved coffee, I loved coffee ice cream. I even wrote a whole post about that.
Coffee ice cream is super nostalgic for me. It was the only ice cream that my grandparents even had in the fridge. I always loved the smell of coffee and the taste of coffee ice cream, so loving actual coffee wasn’t that crazy for me. It just took a while.
I love coffee ice cream so much that this is the THIRD coffee ice cream recipe here on the blog. I might be nuts.
But varieties of coffee ice cream make me so happy.
I started with the vietnamese coffee ice cream. That is ridiculously good. It’s so soft and creamy. And it reminds me – this recipe down below uses sweetened condensed milk, but not an entire can. If you have some leftover, add it to your iced coffee for the next few days until the can is gone.
The next variety I’ve made is my lavender latte ice cream. Oh my word. If you’re a lavender dessert freak like I am (I don’t particularly love the scent, as florals have always made me sneeze, but I love lavender mixed with sugar!), this ice cream is for you. It’s incredible.
And while you’re at it, just make my lavender vanilla syrup for iced coffee at home.
SO it’s only natural that I’d trash up coffee ice cream with oreos! One of our ice cream chains has coffee oreo ice cream, and back when our stay-at-home orders started, we went there every other week or so and let the kids eat ice cream in the back of my car. I couldn’t resist the coffee oreo ice cream and it was so delicious that I knew I had to make it at home.
Side note: this ice cream chain was also my first job when I turned 16 and not only did I come home smelling like actual ice cream, my job was to make the waffle cones where I promptly burnt off all of my finger tips each shift. It was a super fun job, but slow during the day hours, except for what we assumed was an affair that happened in the parking lot twice a week. I also ate so much banana cream pie ice cream that it was forever cemented in my brain as one the best flavors ever, and I developed my own recipe for it in The Pretty Dish!
Just when you thought I was over rambling about pointless things on this blog…
This is another no churn ice cream recipe (I have lots right here) and the method is foolproof. Whip some cream, stir in your ingredients (there are only six, if we’re counting the pinch of salt) and freeze it for a few hours. Or overnight.
It’s so simple. And a great easy dessert! Also fun for the kids to help with. And fun to eat straight from the freezer.
And bonus recipe: you can make a plain old cookies and cream ice cream (Eddie’s favorite) by leaving out the espresso powder here and increasing the vanilla a little bit. I actually added in one tablespoon of vanilla bean paste when I made it for Eddie again last week. Coffee is not his friend, you know.
Here we are with the best ice cream to come out of summer!
Coffee Oreo Ice Cream
Coffee Oreo Ice Cream
- 15 oreo cookies, plus a few extra for topping
- 1 ½ cups cold heavy cream
- ⅔ cup sweetened condensed milk
- 3 tablespoons expresso powder
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
- Place the oreos in a resealable bag and use your hands or a rolling pin to crush the cookies.
- Place the heavy cream in a bowl and beat it with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Add the condensed milk, espresso powder, vanilla and salt. Beat with the electric mixer for another 1 to 2 minutes until combined. Use a spatula to fold in the crushed oreo cookies, stirring until combined.
- Pour the mixture in a 9x5 inch loaf pan or a freezer proof ice cream container. If desired, throw a few whole oreo cookies on top!
- Freeze for at least 6 hours before scooping and serving.
Double scoop please!

We’re taking it way way back with a frozen chocolate cookie dessert today!
Oh you guys. This tastes like my childhood. It tastes like the 90s. In the best possible way ever!
The best part is that I’m partnering with So Delicious Dairy Free again to make this dessert in a new and improved way, using their frozen dessert! Um, just wait until you hear about these flavors.
We used their Cold Brew Frozen Dessert (!!!!!) for a refreshing coffee flavor. It is INSANE. It tastes like a cup of coffee.
And then we used So Delicious’ Mocha Almond Fudge Frozen Dessert for a fancier, more exciting twist. It is also to die for. You can choose a basic flavor or one with a bit more flair, depending on your mood. Or the crowd!
So, funny story.
This dessert was initially made with coffee ice cream. But when we were kids, my brothers flipped over that, so my mom started making it with vanilla ice cream. I feel insanely deprived, because even I knew at the age of 13 that coffee mixed with the other flavors here would do amazing, incredible things. Like make it off the charts delicious.
That’s why we’re going with the coffee flavors today, if only because I have to reclaim my dessert youth!
Another funny thing? My mom rarely made this for just us. She always made it for a party or gathering, but it was often a party where kids weren’t invited (like her monthly card club or something). And it was pure torture knowing that it was in the freezer and I couldn’t have a taste until it had been served at the party.
Of course, there were ALWAYS leftovers for us. But that didn’t make me want to dig in early any less, you know?
My favorite part has always been the fudge sauce.
And I changed her recipe a bit and made the sauce with coconut milk because it’s so rich and wonderful. One of the reasons the fudge layer is fantastic is because it doesn’t completely harden in the freezer. So it’s actually like hot fudge. I mean, sure, it’s not HOT. But it’s fudgy and gooey while the rest of the dessert is frozen.
Now that I’ve been using the So Delicious Cold Brew Frozen Dessert, that layer may be my favorite part. The combo of chocolate and coffee cut with whipped cream is such a classic.
And this isn’t just any whipped cream – I use the So Delicious Dairy Free Cocowhip, which is deeeeelish.
Seriously, you will want to go at that whip with a spoon. I did it many times this summer. It has the most incredibly fluffy, cloud-like consistency. And tastes amazing!
Much like the pumpkin roll I made last month, So Delicious Frozen Dessert works better than traditional ice cream. And that’s coming from someone who has used ice cream for this dessert my entire life. When you use the frozen dessert, it becomes creamy and spreadable, but it doesn’t get watery and melty much at all. That is KEY for using it inside a dessert! It gives you more time to work and put it together.
And it refreezes in the dish so well, as does the CocoWhip.
It’s going to be on permanent rotation here during this lovely holiday season!
Frozen Chocolate Cookie Dessert
Frozen Chocolate Cookie Dessert
This frozen chocolate cookie dessert is a twist on the classic 90s recipe! Cookie crust, ice cream, homemade hot fudge and whipped cream. It's amazing!
- 25 to 30 chocolate sandwich cookies
- ½ cup 1 stick unsalted butter (or butter alternative!), melted
- 2 pints So Delicious Dairy Free Cold Brew Frozen Dessert or So Delicious Mocha Almond Fudge Frozen Dessert
- 1 14 ounce can full-fat coconut whip
- 1 cup sugar
- 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, (chopped)
- 1 container So Delicious Dairy Free Cocowhip Topping, (thawed in the fridge)
- Place the cookies in a food processor or blender and puree until small crumbs remain. Place the cookies in a large bowl and pour the melted butter over top. Stir until the crumbs are moistened. Press the mixture into a 9×13 inch baking dish. Stick the dish in the freezer for 30 minutes.
- Remove the So Delicious frozen dessert from the freezer and allow it to soften for 10 to 15 minutes. Scoop it out into a bowl and stir it together with a large spoon or spatula, until it becomes slightly creamy and no large lumps remain. Spread the frozen mixture over top of the ice cream. Freeze for at least 60 minutes.
- In a saucepan, combine the coconut milk, sugar and chopped chocolate over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly so it doesn’t bubble over. Cook and stir the mixture for 15 to 20 minutes, until it thickens slightly. Remove it from the heat and let it cool to room temperature. It will thicken as it cools too!
- Once cooled, pour the mixture over the frozen dessert. Stick it back in the freezer for at least 2 hours.
- Top the fudge layer with the entire container of Coco Whip. Stick the dish back in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
- To serve, slice into squares and dust cocoa powder on top. Devour!
You should probably stick one in the fridge just… in case! I love it.
