These Cookies and Cream Popsicles are the perfect summer treat, and all you need to make them is two ingredients and a popsicle mold!
I feel like I always start my posts with a Hey, do you need X problem solved? Here’s a recipe that will do that!
Like, hey, do you have a sad brown banana? Make One-banana Small-batch Banana Muffins!
Or, hey, do you have tons of leftover pesto? Make a Pesto Chicken Sandwich!
But that’s how I approach most of my recipe creation because I love recipes that solve problems, even when X problem = something silly like too much ice cream.
So, hey, do you have some vanilla ice cream you need to get rid of? You should make some Cookies and Cream Popsicles!
A few weeks ago, my lovely sister gave me one of those giant tubs of bargain ice cream that she bought for a class party and didn’t use. And when faced with that much ice cream, these popsicles were the very first things I decided to make with it. (BTW, that tub is still going strong. I’ve made about a 75 things with that ice cream so far, and I’m pretty sure it’s going to last me until NEXT summer.)
I’m not much of a vanilla ice cream fan, but add some crushed Oreos and a wooden stick, and it’s like something magical happens and turns the most boring of boring ice cream into a perfect summer treat. They’re cool, refreshing, and refreshingly easy to make.
To make these Cookies and Cream Popsicles, you just let your ice cream get a little melty and then layer it into a popsicle mold with crushed up Oreos. Freeze for a few hours and you’re good to go.
So if you have some ice cream in your freezer, grab some Oreos and try this ASAP, and if you don’t, these popsicles are totally good enough to justify buying a carton just to make them. You won’t regret it!
If you don’t have a popsicle mold, this is the one I have, and I love it. And once you have a popsicle mold and try these Cookies and Cream Popsicles, you can try my Red Wine Popsicles and Smoothie Popsicles!
Two-Ingredient Cookies and Cream Popsicles
Cookies and Cream Popsicles
- 15 Oreos
- 4 cups vanilla ice cream
- Allow ice cream to sit at room temperature for 15 to 25 minutes until quite soft.
- Place oreos in a plastic bag and crush into pieces with the bottom of a glass or rolling pin.
- Add about 1 heaping teaspoon of crumbs to each popsicle mold. Fill halfway with softened ice cream. Add another heaping teaspoon of crumbs (this should use up the rest of the Oreos) and add the rest of the ice cream, leaving about a 1/2 inch of space. Replace lid, add popsicle sticks and freeze for 4 hours.
- Run popsicle mold under lukewarm water to loosen popsicles, gently remove, and enjoy!
