Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

I like to make my Homemade Caramel Sauce for this recipe, so I make that first. If you’re too lazy or don’t have time, you can buy the King’s Cupboard Caramel Sauce. It’s good but it’s definitely not as good as making it from scratch!

Step 2

Line an 8-inch cake pan with parchment paper.

Step 3

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, add the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix on low to avoid splattering, and gradually increase speed, until you’re at full speed and stiff peaks form.

Step 4

Add about one third of the cookies to the prepared cake pan, making sure you have an even layer. You can crush them up by hand or just break them, this does not need to be perfect, just try to make it even.

Add half of the whipped cream frosting into the prepared cake pan and spread evenly. Drizzle a layer of caramel sauce and swirl around.

Step 5

Repeat this process again, layer one third of crushed up cookies, the second half of the whipped cream, and caramel sauce. Then top the top of the cake with the remaining cookies and a drizzle of caramel sauce on top.

Place the cake pan in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight. Remove cake from the pan and using a hot sharp knife, cut into slices and serve immediately.

FAQ's

Do I need a stand mixer for this recipe?

No, you don't need a stand mixer, but you do need at least a hand mixer to make the whipped cream. So, feel free to use either one!

Can I use a different Oreo flavor?

Yes! Feel free to swap for the original Newman's Own O's which are vanilla creme center. Or, you could even use the Vanilla Newman's Own O's (like golden oreos) or Peanut Butter! These would all be delicious with this recipe.

Do you store icebox cakes in the fridge or the freezer?

Icebox cake can be stored in the fridge if you're going to eat it right away. It's best chilled right out of the fridge so it's not completely frozen. But, if you plan to store it for longer than a couple days, the storing it in the freezer is best. To freeze an icebox cake, store it in an airtight freezer safe container.
