Oreo Cheesecake Ice Box Cake


If you love all things cookies & cream, then you may have just become my new best friend.  Cookies & Cream is one of my go-to dessert flavors (along with mint chocolate or salted caramel), and when I saw an Oreo Ice Box Cake from Cookies & Cups in my Feedly account I knew I needed to try it immediately.  Then, shortly after I saw Brown Eyed Baker post one for a cheesecake adaptation.  I immediately added the ingredients to my shopping list and planned on making this for a family birthday party the next weekend.

This cake is VERY rich, but it definitely doesn't disappoint.  It had all of the flavor profiles I love about cookies & cream, but additionally, it was an ice box cake, and who doesn't love ice box cakes?!  They're simplicity alone makes them a great dessert, but they're always so rich in flavor from sitting in the refrigerator for such a long period of time (usually overnight for most people I'd imagine!) 

Oreo Cheesecake Ice Box Cake
Ingredients: 
90 Oreo cookies (I used Original, not Double Stuffed)
2 boxes cheesecake flavored instant pudding mix
4 cups of milk
1 8-oz. tub of Cool Whip
Chocolate Syrup and/or Crumbled Oreos as desired

Directions:
Line the bottom of a 9x13" baking dish with about 30 of the Oreo cookies.  You can break some up to fill gaps around the edges.

In a medium-large bowl, prepare both boxes of pudding as directed on the package.  Once thickened and set, fold in the Cool Whip just until incorporated.

Pour one third of the mixture over the Oreos.  Repeat Oreo and pudding layers two more times, for a total of 3 layers of each.

Garnish with chocolate syrup and crumbled Oreos if desired.

Refrigerate for 6 hours, up to overnight.

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my!

But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?  Check!  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do!  Pumpkin?  Well of course!  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try!

One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix them, ba…

Foodbuzz 24x24: A Very Hungry Caterpillar First Birthday Party

It's hard to believe that my baby boy is technically no longer a baby anymore!  It seems like just yesterday I was a nervous wreck on our way to the hospital, and now all of a sudden I'm planning a birthday party!

Even before Ty was born though, I knew I wanted to do a Very Hungry Caterpillar party.  I'm not exactly sure what made me think of it, but one day I was sitting in his room and imagining reading him the first book I bought for him.  Yep - The Very Hungry Caterpillar!

There is something about the classic children's book that lends itself very well to entertaining.  Generally speaking, the focal point of any event (aside from the reason for celebration), is the food.    For those not familiar with the book - The Hungry Caterpillar is all about food!  He eats is way through many different foods, until he's big and strong and becomes a beautiful butterfly.  A perfect metaphor for a young baby.  It's amazing how much such a little guy can eat - but at th…

White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling

OK, so, while this recipe was the result of me literally quick thinking at the grocery store rushing around to pick up a few ingredients over Easter weekend, I came up with a fantastic cake filling, in my humble opinion.  I love the cake fillings at Costco and wanted to make a variation on that.  This is really semi-homemade but oh so good!  It's rich, creamy and decadent.  Even my husband loved it, and he's not really a cake fan.  It was so easy to make too!
