Mocha Cookies and Cream Icebox Cake

Name a better combo than cookies and cream. I’ll wait–oh wait….I stand corrected, because MOCHA and cookies and cream has to be the best flavor throuple of all time. When I was in high school, my friends and I would make this amazing concoction: vanilla soft serve stirred with crushed up Oreo cookies and drizzled with hot coffee. It was a poor man’s affogato and really hooked me on that coffee Oreo flavor combo.

So when we started brainstorming icebox cake flavors for the summer, we just had to make a mocha cookies and cream icebox cake! She’s a decadent cookies and cream icebox cake loaded up with Oreo cookies, freshly whipped cream, and a sumptuous mocha fudge. Need I say more?

How to store your mocha cookies and cream icebox cake:

Another wonderful feature of icebox cakes is that they’ll keep in your freezer for a decent amount of time. If you don’t finish your whole mocha cookies and cream icebox cake in one sitting, simply wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and place in the freezer until ready to eat again! Our icebox cake lasted 2 months in the freezer before it started to taste a little freezer burnt. But I can guarantee yours will never last that long 🙂

We hope you enjoy this mocha cookies and cream icebox cake just as much as we do. SO LIKE A LOT.

Ingredients

For the mocha cookies and cream cake

  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 Tablespoons espresso powder
  • 3 cups heavy cream, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup brewed coffee
  • 33 Oreo Cookies

For the cookies and cream whipped frosting

  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Oreo cookie crumbs (about 3 cookies)
  • 10 Oreo cookies, optional garnish

Instructions

  1. Place chocolate chips and espresso powder in a microwave safe bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan over low heat, heat 1 cup of the heavy cream until scalding (not boiling!). Remove from heat and pour onto the chocolate chips.
  3. Allow mixture to sit for 5 minutes, then stir with a whisk to combine. By this point, chocolate should be fully melted. If it’s not, place in the microwave for 15 seconds and stir. Spoon into a piping bag and place in the fridge until ready to layer.
  4. In a standing mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the remaining 2 cups of heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla extract and salt and beat well. Set aside.
  5. Line the inside of a standard-sized loaf pan with plastic wrap on all sides. Working in layers and starting with the whipped cream mixture, spoon and spread the whipped cream, pipe and spread the ganache, and dunk Oreo cookies in coffee before layering on top of the fudge. It’s completely up to you how much you spoon on each layer– if you want more whipped cream, do it! More chocolate, do it!
  6. Repeat layers until your loaf pan is full, finishing with a layer of whipped cream.
  7. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer to set for at least 3 hours.
  8. When ready to serve, take the icebox cake out of the freezer. Beat the heavy cream with a whisk until medium-stiff peaks form. Add the powdered sugar and beat well. Last, fold in the Oreo cookie crumbs until evenly distributed.
  9. Remove ice box cake from the loaf pan and place on a serving tray. “Frost” with the whipped cream, using a spoon to make big swirls. If desired, top with crumbled cookies. Use a hot, sharp knife to slice and serve! Enjoy.
