This recipe was born one day basically because I had a sweet tooth, I had vanilla ice cream, and I had Oreos. I’m rather picky about what items of food I mix, but Cookies ‘n Cream ice cream has always been a favorite of mine, so this seemed quite obvious once I’d done it.
Here’s what you’ll need to start:
Dreyer’s Vanilla Ice Cream (Dreyer’s is my favorite, and while I suppose you could use a different vanilla ice cream, I don’t understand why you would) and three frozen Oreos (when they’re frozen, I’ve found they produce a better grind than when they’re not frozen. Also, you get delicious chunks of frozen Oreo that didn’t crush up, and those are DELICIOUS in your ice cream.).
Scoop some ice cream into a bowl.
Place frozen Oreos in a blender. This little mini-blender is actually a baby food blender that I got for something like $20 at Burlington Coat Factory in their baby department. It chops up garlic, onions, oreos, and whatever else amazingly well. Also, it’s small so cleaning is no biggie.
Pulse until it you have some very, powder-like Oreo cookie, but also some chunks. Again, this works way better if the Oreos are frozen.
Pour the crushed cookies over your ice cream.
Don’t skimp. Pour ALL of the crushed cookies over your ice cream.
You could eat it now like this. It really is delicious, with the creamy texture of the ice cream against the grainy texture of the crushed Oreos. I prefer to mix the whole thing up, though.
Mix up the ice cream and crushed cookies, so you have homemade Cookies ‘n Cream ice cream. Doesn’t it look delicious?! I promise, it’s just as awesome as you’re thinking. If, perhaps, you’re thinking this looks gross, then GOOD! More homemade Cookies ‘n Cream ice cream for ME!
