Ingredients

  • 16 Oreo chocolate creme sandwich cookies
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 quart (4 cups) cherry or cherry vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 8 Oreo chocolate creme sandwich cookies, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 quart (4 cups) vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 1/2 cup fudge ice-cream sauce
  • Sweetened whipped cream, if desired
  • 12 fresh cherries with stems

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Place 16 cookies in food processor. Cover and process until finely ground. Add butter; cover and process until mixed. Press in springform pan, 9x3 inches. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until firm. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 2
    Wrap outside of springform pan with foil. Spread cherry ice cream over cooled crust. Freeze 30 minutes.
  • 3
    Sprinkle chopped cookies and 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips over cherry ice cream; press slightly. Spread vanilla ice cream over top. Drop fudge sauce over ice cream in small spoonfuls; swirl slightly into ice cream. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips; press slightly. Freeze about 8 hours until firm.
  • 4
    To serve, let stand at room temperature 5 to 10 minutes. Carefully remove side of pan. Cut dessert into wedges. Top each wedge with whipped cream and cherry.

  • Spray the back of a metal spoon with cooking spray, then use it to press the crumb mixture into the pan.
  • It’s a snap to spread the fudge sauce over the ice cream. Just spoon the sauce into a resealable plastic food-storage bag, cut off a small tip from a corner and squeeze.
  • This special dessert keeps well in the freezer for up to two weeks. Make the dessert, freeze until firm, then cover with foil to store.
