This is all you need...
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream
1 8oz. container Cool Whip
1 package Oreo cookies
Put the cookies in a gallon zip lock baggie and break them into small but not too small pieces. I like to whack 'em with my rolling pin. Better than therapy, and cheaper, too! Let the ice cream soften a bit then gently stir in the cool whip and cookies. Put back in freezer for at least a couple of hours. That's it!
From whence it came: My sister-in-law, Lynn, used to make this recipe. I remember the first time she made it for us, I thought the Spy Who Loves Me was going to kiss his sister right on the lips. Creepy! He stopped short of that, but he is a BIG fan of this ice cream!
Why it's blogable: Three ingredients, a bowl and a wooden spoon and when you're done you have a sweet treat that will help you win friends and influence people. This recipe is just about as easy as they come, and it's super duper yum-e!
I have a bone to pick:
Dear Ice Cream Manufacturers,
We are not idiots! We can see that you have reduced the size of your cartons and raised your prices. You are annoying and rude and if we weren't totally and completely addicted to ice cream we would boycott your product and put you out of business! Lucky for you we can't live without ice cream, or you'd be toast!
A consumer who is NOT an idiot
Oh, that reminds me, now that the ice cream containers are smaller, you may not want to add all the Oreos. You can save out one sleeve and then stick an Oreo in each bowl when you serve it. It looks a little bit fancier that way, too!
Oh yeah, and one more thing...you can use other flavors of ice cream, too. Maybe mint or mocha. Live dangerously, try something crazy!
Hope you enjoy stirring it up!
