Mini Oreo Ice Cream Sandwich Sundae Recipe

Oreo cookies are a staple in our house almost year around. When I was considering a food that began with the letter O for my first Blogging from A to Z challenge many years ago, my middle little one immediately thought of Oreos. Mmmmmm...Oreo cookies. I am not a cookie and sweets fan--but, I love chocolate and chocolate cake--and Oreos. What could I do with Oreos that is something different and easy that both the kids and I will love? I think I hit the nail on the head with our Mini Oreo Ice Cream Sandwich Sundaes. 

These make a fun cooking with kids project!  These cookie "sundaes" are ready in minutes and are so much fun for the kids to make and eat!  Oh--and they are perfect for National Oreo Day and National Ice Cream Day too!

Some Interesting Facts About Oreos

  • Oreo cookies were first introduced in 1912 by Nabisco. They were originally called "Hydrox" cookies, but they were renamed "Oreo" in 1921. Oreos quickly became popular, and they are now one of the most popular cookies in the world.
  • The first Oreo cookies were sold for 25 cents a package.
  • Oreo cookies are the number one selling cookie in the United States.
  • Oreos are sold in over 100 countries around the world.
  • The average person eats about 10 Oreos a year.
  • The most expensive Oreo cookie ever sold was a golden Oreo that was encrusted with diamonds. It sold for $1,700.
Ingredients for Mini Oreo Ice Cream Sandwich Sundaes

Oreo Cookies
Cookies and Cream Ice Cream, slightly softened (I Use Velvet Cookies 'n Cream)
Whipped Cream
Chocolate Syrup (I use 365 Organic or Hershey's)
Maraschino Cherries


Instructions for Mini Oreo Ice Cream Sandwich Sundaes
Prepare the Oreo Cookies.  Carefully separate each Oreo into two halves.  Make sure that the cream filling is removed from each sandwich cookie.  (It was hard to convince the girls to scrape the cookies with a knife and not their tongues!)

Fill each Oreo Ice Cream Sandwich with Ice Cream.  Place a tablespoon of ice cream into the center of a cookie half.  Form it so that it is rounded nicely to fit the round cookie shape.  Place a second cookie half on top of the ice cream and press down lightly to create an easy ice cream sandwich.

Add whipped cream.  Swirl whipped cream onto the top of each Oreo ice cream sandwich.

Garnish the "sundae" appearance serve.  Drizzle with chocolate syrup and add a maraschino cherry (or 1/4 of a jumbo maraschino cherry as we did here).  Serve immediately with lots of napkins!

These are quick, easy, and huge hits with chocolate/ Oreo lovers--and allow you to serve small, servings of a fun, kid friendly dessert. We make these so often during the summer--but, there is no reason not to make them year-around when the ingredients are probably frequently on hand!

We also love to make these Triple Chocolate Fudge Oreo Cupcakes for almost every birthday in our little corner of the world--just in case you need a slightly different idea for National Oreo Day! 
Mama's Tips for This Recipe
  • For a fun twist, use different flavors of ice cream or different flavors of Oreo Cookies!
  • Add in your favorite extra mix-ins, such as chocolate chips, candy, or nuts.
  • To freeze the ice cream sandwiches for longer, wrap them individually in plastic wrap and then place them in a freezer bag. They will keep for up to 2 weeks in the freezer.  When you are ready to use, simply top with the whipped topping, cherry and chocolate drizzle!
  • Did you use all of the maraschino cherries?  Save your maraschino cherry juice in the jar in the fridge and add it to your next batch of sangria!
