I lost some major mama points this week. My soon-to-be eight year old daughter opened the fridge and happened to spy this Irish Cream Oreo Icebox Cake perched inside. Of course, she immediately was excited by the possibility of enjoying a slice after dinner when I had to burst her bubble. Sorry, sweet girl, this dessert is for adults only. Enter conversation about legal drinking age. Although looking back on said conversation, adding adult beverages to dessert is downright genius. It means I don’t have to share with the four little ones of the house!
This six ingredient sweet treat is likely one of the easiest desserts you’ll ever make and absolutely perfect to enjoy for St. Patrick’s Day. Even better? There’s absolutely no baking involved and it tastes better and better the longer it sets in the fridge. How often can you say that about any food, let alone a dessert?
Layers of Oreos and Irish cream spiked mascarpone whipped cream make up this dreamy Irish Cream Oreo Ice Box Cake. It’s then slid into the fridge to meld together overnight. The cookies soften as it absorbs the moisture of the whipped cream creating a dessert that can easily be sliced into wedges to be enjoyed as a cake.
I’m sad to report that I just finished the last slice of this Irish Cream Oreo Icebox Cake. Lucky for me, and I suppose my husband who I’ve been sharing the cake with, it’s so incredibly easy to make that there might just be another one sitting in my fridge waiting to devour tomorrow!
