Happy Memorial Day, everyone! Here’s a quick and easy recipe that everyone will love!
When our twins were younger, they confused Memorial Day with “Mem-Oreo” Day, and a new family tradition was born! We always have Oreos on “Mem-Oreo” Day while we enjoy time with family and friends and remember the sacrifices so many made for us.
This year, I decided we’d try a recipe I remembered from My childhood: Oreo Delight.
It’s quick. It’s easy. And, it’s delicious.
Yes, you could just buy a gallon of cookies and cream ice cream, but I promise this is better.
You’ll only need three ingredients, and they are:
- A family size package of Oreo cookies
- Half a gallon of vanilla ice cream
- A large container of whipped topping.
Seriously, that’s it.
First, let your ice cream and whipped topping soften up a bit while you crush those Oreo cookies. The size of the pieces is all about your preference. (I just put them in a plastic bag and beat them with my rolling pin!)
Once the cookies are crushed and everything’s a bit soft, put it all in a bowl and mix until well-combined then spread in a 9×13 dish and freeze.
I’d be sure and freeze it for at least a few hours, but I froze ours overnight. When you’re ready, just cut into squares and serve.
Add a half of a cookie on top of each piece for presentation’s sake, too!
