Summer is here and we had a surge of heat wave for a week where the temperature soared to 90s. I did plan to make icebox cake for a long time and decided to do on this uber hot day. However, I didn’t expect, it will be so difficult to take pictures. The moment I set my dish on the plate it started to melt, poor thing couldn’t stand the heat giving the literal meaning to the phrase “melt into a puddle”. Hey! Don’t come to conclusion with my pictures, try it, I guarantee you’ll like it.
Below is my daughter’s testimony.
Please do tell me what an ice box cake is. Because if I imagine what and ice box is, it is one of those big blue roller ottomans, that people put drinks and ice for picnics or a barbeque. But ice boxes are my favorite after this wonderful experience.
I wasn’t really home when my mom made this. She just texted me that she made something out of the mounds of ice-cream newly occupying our freezer. I mean what could you make with ice cream? A smoothie, or a topping, or maybe even a sandwich with something new.
Oh boy, when I went home and opened that freezer, I saw a brown ceramic container with Oreos on top. OREOS?! I said to myself. We never have Oreos! I dropped my bags and my keys and hurriedly took the container out. I unwrapped the Saran wrap to reveal the love of my life. Instead waiting for it to thaw, I set out to murder it with the largest knife I could grab and started stabbing my way to a large square piece. I found so many layers of rocky road and an ice cream sandwich and Oreos and Oreo ice cream. I don’t think it could have been clearer that I had found the one!

- Rocky road ice cream -- as needed
- Ice Cream sandwiches -- 4 to 5 (I needed 4 as my ceramic pan was not wide enough to fit 5)
- Oreo cookies -- 12 (crushed with 1/4 cup reserved for topping)
- Hot fudge or caramel sauce topping -- 1/2 jar (I used caramel sauce)
- Reddi-whip or whipped cream -- 1 can (optional)
- Line 9"x5" loaf pan with plastic wrap(I used a ceramic tiramisu pan), leaving some wrap hanging along the sides.
- Soften ice cream by leaving them out on the counter for few minutes. This will help in spreading them easily. Spread about 1/2 inch thick layer in the bottom of the pan. Using a knife push the ice cream to all corners and smooth the top to get an even layer.
- Add ice cream sandwiches on top of the rocky road and press to make sure they are set tightly.
- Pour hot fudge or caramel sauce on top of the ice cream sandwich and spread evenly with a knife. Now add crushed oreo cookies on top of the sauce, reserve 1/4 for the final topping.
- Add another layer of rocky road ice cream and fold the hanging plastic wrap to cover the pan. Place the pan in freezer for 4 hours or more to set.
- When ready to serve, take the pan out of the freezer and remove the entire cake by lifting the plastic wrap and place the cake on a serving platter. Top off with whipped cream and remaining crushed oreos. Enjoy!!!
