Ingredients

  • Oreo Crust
  • 50 oreos, crushed (save ½ cup for ice cream filling)
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • Ganache
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Ice cream Filling
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ cup crushed oreos (use set aside from earlier)

Instructions

  1. Prepare a 9x13 baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor, blend the oreos until fine. Set aside ½ cup of the crumbs for later.
  3. In a mixing bowl add the crushed oreos and the melted butter. Fold together until a crumbly mixture is formed.
  4. Pour half of this oreo crust mixture into the baking pan. Spread evenly and press into the bottom of the pan. Place in the freezer while making the ganache.
  5. Pour the chocolate chips, salt and vanilla in a mixing bowl together.
  6. In a pot, heat up the heavy cream over the stove. Once it starts steaming but before boiling, pour this over the bowl of chocolate chips.
  7. Let this sit for 5 minutes so the hot cream can start melting the chocolate chips.
  8. Once the 5 minutes has passed, start slowly whisking the mixture together. It will be clumpy at first, but slowly everything will begin to combine.
  9. Take the oreo crust out of the freezer and pour a layer of ganache over the oreos, using about half of the ganache. Spread evenly with a rubber spatula. Place back in the freezer.
  10. In a separate, large mixing bowl add the heavy cream and vanilla. Whip with a hand mixer until thick and the whipped cream holds peaks.
  11. Add the sweetened condensed milk and fold together until combined and smooth.
  12. Lastly, add the ½ cup of crushed oreos set aside earlier. Fold again until everything is combined.
  13. Remove the pan from the freezer. Pour the whipped oreo cream into the pan and spread out evenly. Freeze for 5 hours.
  14. Pour the rest of the ganache over the cream layer and spread evenly. Top with the other half of the oreo crumbs as well, patting to spread evenly.
  15. Freeze for another 3 hours or overnight.
  16. Remove sandwiches from the pan by lifting out with the parchment paper.
  17. Cut into squares, using a knife dipped in hot water to make it easier.
  18. Enjoy!
