Christmas Oreo Icebox Cake

Holiday Oreo Icebox Cake- The Easiest Cake You've Every Made!

Christmas Oreo Icebox Cake – Christmas Oreo’s, chocolate pudding, and peppermint whipped cream come together in a super simple, delicious, and easy no bake dessert!

Christmas time is all about cookies. Everywhere you turn there is a different cookie recipe popping up. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good cookie. But sometimes you want more than a cookie. A creamy, delicious dessert, that takes more than 2 bites to make your way through it. And because we are all super busy this time of year, if it can be ready in minutes that is even better! Christmas Oreo Icebox Cake is the perfect solution.

Christmas Oreo Icebox Cake is made with a layer of red Christmas Oreo’s, a layer of chocolate pudding, more Oreo’s and then topped with creamy fresh whipped cream. Icebox cakes come together in no time. The layers of pudding and cream help soften the Oreo’s, so it cuts like a cake. The hardest part is letting it set up in the fridge for 4 hours before you can eat it! Plus you can change them up a ton of different ways to match any holiday. Like this Mint Oreo Icebox Cake.

The Good Cook 13×9″ Bake and Roast Pan is the perfect size for any Oreo icebox cake. Perfectly party-sized, you can make a whole batch quick and have more than enough to share. You can even make preparing the cake easier if you wanted to use store bought whipped topping instead of making your own whipped cream.

Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the pudding mixture. Dip the remaining Oreo’s into the milk to place in a single layer over the pudding. You should have a few cookies left. Set those aside.

Skip The Campfire With This S’mores Ice Box Cake!

S'mores Icebox Cake. An Super Easy, No-Bake Dessert You Will LOVE!
Summer is here and with it comes hours of fun in the sun, giggling kids running through the sprinkler, and evenings spent outside toasting ‘mallows.

We love this time of year!

Truthfully, though, I’m not much of an outdoorsy type of person. Mosquitoes, dirt, and heat. None of that adds up to a good time for me! I’d much prefer to stay indoors where it’s nice and cool.

Then again, I’d happily do just about anything for a s’mores. If that means sitting around a campfire or sleeping in a tent, well, so be it. Melty marshmallows and chocolate are my favorite. In fact, I don’t think there is anything else in the world that could convince me to sleep in the dirt. That’s true love, my friends.

I have a sneaking suspicion that some of you are also not quite as outdoorsy as you could be, so I figured bring s’mores inside would make everyone happy this summer. It’s hard to go wrong with an ice box cake, especially when it’s inspired by our favorite campfire treat.

This s’mores ice box cake couldn’t be simpler. It’s a great project to do with the kids on a hot summer day and I’m sure everyone will enjoy helping you devour the end result!

You’ll need a 9×5″ Loaf Dish for this recipe. If your baking pans are worn out, scratched or rusting, it’s time to upgrade! The Good Cook AirPerfect Nonstick Large 9″x5″ Loaf Pan may just be the last loaf pan you ever need to buy. Made of heavy-gauge steel to prevent warping, the AirPerfect line is designed with bakers in mind. With a channeled surface on the bottom of each pan to encourage even baking and browning, this pan isn’t just ideal for my no-bake s’mores cake. It’s also an essential for quickbreads, yeast breads–even meatloaf!

  • Sharing this treat? Prep your no-bake cake in our Good Cook Red Ceramic Loaf Dish. This beautiful baking pan is safe for the oven, fridge and freezer. With bright red glazed exterior and fluted design elements, this dish isn’t just sturdy enough to hold your homebaked goods, it’s pretty enough to go straight on the serving table, too.

Once you’ve grabbed your loaf pan, line it with foil or plastic wrap to make it extra easy to remove your ice box cake and keep it looking gorgeous.

You’ll start by whipping up chocolate pudding. A box of instant pudding mix is the way to go here. For the marshmallow layer, we’re just going to fold some marshmallow fluff into a container of refrigerated whipped topping. The whipped topping holds up a little better than whipped cream and is perfectly sweetened.

The chocolate and marshmallow layers just get sandwiched between graham crackers. You’ll love how quick this is to prepare. It does need to hang out in the fridge for at least four hours before serving, though. We want the graham crackers to soften up to a more cake like consistency. If you really can’t wait for a taste (and who could blame you?) grab an extra graham cracker and use it to scrape the bowl of the chocolate pudding and marshmallow topping. Total yum!

Once you’ve got the cake on a serving platter, drizzle some chocolate syrup right over the top and sprinkle with graham crackers. I’ll bet you won’t be able to resist this ice box cake!


S’mores Ice Box Cake

A cool and creamy cake inspired by your favorite campfire treat!

  • Prep Time: 10
  • Total Time: 10
  • Yield: 8


  • 13 graham crackers
  • 1 3.9 ounce box instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 1/2 cups cold milk
  • 8 ounces refrigerated whipped topping
  • 1 cup marshmallow fluff
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup


Place a sheet of foil or plastic wrap in a 9×5 loaf pan, pressing to mold to the pan, leaving enough foil or wrap to extend up and over the sides of the pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the pudding mix and milk until well combined and thickened. Refrigerate for 5 minutes. In a second bowl, fold together the whipped topping and marshmallow fluff. Place 1/3 of the marshmallow mixture in the bottom of the loaf pan. Top with 1/3 of the pudding. Break the graham crackers in half and place 6 halves evenly over the pudding. Spread with the marshmallow mixture, pudding, and top with graham crackers twice more. Set aside the remaining graham cracker. Refrigerate the cake for 4 hours. Place the serving plate over the loaf pan and carefully invert. Gently remove the foil or plastic wrap from the cake. Crumble the remaining graham cracker over the cake and drizzle with chocolate syrup. Serve immediately.

How to Make Egg-Free Cookie Dough (and Milkshakes!)

How to Make Egg-Free Cookie Dough

Summer is in full swing, and it is time to find ways to cool off.  Sometimes that means going to the beach or pool and getting in the water.  Other times that means heading to the local ice cream shop for a treat.  But the best way, is getting to make your own milkshakes at home! And they are so easy!  I am a sucker for cookie dough anything.  I sometimes just make cookies as an excuse to eat the dough.  Please tell me I am not alone!  So making a cookie dough milkshake, at home, seems like the best way to cool off to me.  

Making egg-free cookie dough, that you can just snack on, is super easy.  Just a few of the staple ingredients from regular cookie dough (minus the eggs), and you have something that tastes the same.  I used cookie dough ice cream as a base for the milkshakes, because I can’t get cookie dough.  But you could use chocolate or vanilla if that is more your style.  Seriously, no matter what you do, if you are a cookie dough fan, you will love these cookie dough milkshakes.

Milkshake Must-Have!

The Good Cook Deluxe Trigger Ice Cream Scoop works great to get big scoops out of the container of ice cream. The durable stainless steel trigger features a plastic tip to keep hands from sliding and its sturdy plastic handle offers a firm and comfortable grip that resists the cold while the scoop is in use. Bigger than most scoops, this is a great way to grab perfect-sized portions for 1 mighty shake, or scoop out the whole container and blend a big batch!
