Mint Oreo Icebox Cake


This simple version of an icebox cake comes together in no time when you layer mint Oreo’s and Cool Whip. 

No-Bake 2 ingredient Mint Oreo Icebox Cake recipe at

Sometimes when you make a delicious dessert you have to make sacrifices.  This Mint Oreo Icebox Cake, for example is only two ingredients (3 if you include the chocolate syrup on top) and is is seriously so easy you can make it in five minutes……no baking or cooking involved!  So what’s the sacrifice you ask? Other than not fitting in a swimsuit this summer…….. it’s time.  This cake needs to be made a day ahead. 

Last year I made a Raspberry Icebox Cake for my birthday, one of the easiest desserts I’ve ever made…….until I saw Shelly’s Oreo Icebox Cake made with Cool Whip.   I’m not sure why it took me a whole year to finally make it!  Cakes can be intimidating to make, unless you are Amanda, Rosie, or Heather.  But icebox cake is not only super easy but the best part is, it doesn’t have to look perfect to be beautiful!  Embrace the messy cake and make an icebox cake!  

How to make a Mint Oreo Icebox Cake at

What you need

1 loaf pan (8 or 9 inch)

aluminum foil

at least 24 Mint Oreo’s 

16 ounces of Cool Whip (If you don’t have Cool Whip available, you can always make whipped cream.)

Start by lining your loaf pan with foil.

Spread a layer of Cool Whip on the bottom of the pan, then place at least 8 mint Oreo’s on top (you could break up a few more cookies to place in the middle if you want).  Cover cookies with more Cool Whip and another layer of cookies.  Continue until you have 3-4 layers (I only ended up with 3 layers, but I think you could get 4).  Top the last layer of cookies with Cool Whip.  Be sure to save a few of tablespoons of Cool Whip for retouching the cake the next day. Cover loosely with a foil tent and refrigerate overnight or longer.

When ready to serve, turn cake out on a plate, carefully remove foil and touch up bare spots with reserved Cool Whip, using a small spatula.

Garnish the top with chocolate syrup and chopped Oreos.

A few notes:

Shelly dunked her Oreo’s in milk before she layer her cake, I might give that a try next time, it will make the cookies even more soft.

Next time I plan to break up a few cookies to fill in the gaps with each layer.

I totally forgot that I was going to build this cake with pudding and Cool Whip until after I made the cake.  So stay tuned for another version I have in mind……what flavor of Oreo’s should I use for the next cake?

Regardless of all that, this is one super easy and delicious dessert that the kids could even make!

    Do they still make the coffee cream oreos? That would make an excellent Tiramisu version. I love mint, too, though. I am definitely going to try this once it gets warmer. Right now, cold desserts only make us feel colder. Ha!
