Oreo Grasshopper Ice Cream Sandwich cake


Oh...my...GOODNESS this was heavenly and EASY. So I made some modifications to this recipe to make it 1. healthier, 2. tastier, and 3. more colorful. :) The original recipe called for regular ice cream sandwiches. I used grasshopper ice cream sandwiches to make it prettier and because I love mint chocolate chip ice cream! I will experiment in the future with different flavors.



  • 12 grasshopper ice cream sandwiches (Bluebunny)
  • 1 tub Cool Whip FREE
  • 1 package (4 serving size) sugar-free chocolate instant pudding
  • 1/4 cup Nutella, (I used Kroger brand because it's lower calorie)
  • 8 reduced fat oreo cookies, chopped into pieces (not ground into powder)
  • Optional: 2 drops of green food coloring
  1. Pour nutella into medium bowl. Whisk in 1 cup Cool Whip. Add dry pudding mix; stir 2 min.
  2. Arrange 4 ice cream sandwiches, side-by-side, on 24-inch-long piece of foil; top with half the Cool Whip/Nutella mixture. Repeat layers. Top with remaining sandwiches.
  3. If using food coloring, add it to the remaining Cool Whip. I did this to make the frosting match the ice cream in color. Frost top and sides with remaining Cool Whip; press chopped cookies into Cool Whip on top and sides of cake. Bring up foil sides; double fold top and ends to loosely seal packet.
  4. Freeze 4 hours.
