  • 12 oreo cookies
  • 1 family pack of vanilla ice cream
  • Red and green Gems or M&M's, jelly candy
  • Strawberry syrup I used Hershey's


  • Scrape off cream from between 6 oreos , and pop in 12 oreo cookies (minus the cream) in a mixer/grinder or food processor, grind to a fine powder.
  • Put cookie powder in each bowl and press down with a spoon to level.
  • Add vanilla ice cream in the bowls and again press down with a spoon to level. (Keep the ice cream out of the fridge for a few minutes to soften it a bit so that it becomes easy to flatten it in the bowl.)
  • Keep the bowl in the freezer to allow the ice cream to set. (2-3 hours)
  • When the ice cream is set, decorate it using red and green candies and strawberry syrup.


Allow the ice cream to become hard before adding decorations on top. Otherwise, the syrup will seep in or blend with the ice cream and pattern won't form properly.
If you want the kids to make this dessert, you can give them a ziplock bag and a rolling pin. They can crush the cookies in the bag instead of powdering them in a food processor.
