Better Than Cookies and Cream!
Sure, Ben and Jerry were genius in adding Oreos to their ice cream. But this tops even that!
I'm sure many people have done this and that I am not the first person to have this brilliant idea. But the idea of placing a small scoop of ice cream in the middle of an Oreo was a brilliant and easy idea that is now a snack favorite. These would have looked pretty rolled in pink sprinkles, wouldn't they? I didn't have any!
These instant crowd pleasers couldn't be any more simple to make!
Oreo cookies (2 per person)
Ice cream -- your favorite flavor(s) and one scoop per cookie
An ice cream scoop
Take ice cream out of freezer and microwave just enough to soften, about 5 to 10 seconds
Open up desired amount of Oreo cookies, and leave the frosting on
Scoop ice cream on to cookie halves
Place tops on and press firmly
Clean sides with a butter knife of frosting spatula (or fingers!)
Roll in sprinkles if desired
Place back in freezer to harden, about an hour before serving
