This jello is another in the series of ice cream flavored treats.  This one was made for Sarah‘s BBQ and housewarming party for her new Brooklyn abode with a much coveted yard. Its made with vanilla bean ice cream and sweetened condensed milk.  Its crowned with mini Oreo cookies and crust of crushed Oreos.  A cool and creamy compliment to a very hot summer.

Cookies and Cream Jello

3 packages of Knox plain gelatin
3/4 cup cold water
1 3/4 cups boiling water
1 pint cookies and cream ice cream
1/2 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 bag of mini Oreo cookies

In a small bowl, sprinkle 2 packages of Knox over 1/2 cup cold water until gelatin absorbs the water. Stir in 1 cup boiling water for 2 minutes until the gelatin is fully dissolved. Stir in ice cream until the mixture is smooth. Crush up about 1/2 cup of the cookies and stir in. Refrigerate until mixture thickens to a gel. Arrange whole cookies in the bottom of the mold and spoon ice cram into mold over cookies. Refrigerate until set but not firm.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl sprinkle 1 package of Knox over 1/4 cup cold water until gelatin absorbs the water. Stir in 3/4 cup boiling water for 2 minutes until the gelatin is fully dissolved. Stir in 1/2 cup sugar until dissolved. Allow to cool to room temp and stir in about 1 1/2 cup crushed cookies. Spoon into mold over ice cram layer and refrigerate until firm.

  1. That looks absolutely delicious and beautiful! I want I want.

  2. Did you just use plain gelatin in the ice cream?

    • Yes, Knox plain gelitin. One envelope of Knox with 3/4 cup boiling water for every 1 cup of icecream.

  3. Hi Victoria,
    Do you post the recipes for your jello creations ? I can’t seem to find them and I’d love to make this cookies-and-cream version for my young nieces and nephew.

    Thanks very much and Best Wishes

  7. [...] of Brooklyn and my latest creation is owed entirely to her innovation with gelatin. When I saw her cookies and cream jello I knew that I would one day try it out myself. This past week while out thrifting, I came across [...]

  8. I stumbled upon your blog today and I am so impressed. I am helping my mom plan my sisters graduation party this year and she wants a large 2010 jello mold. So far my search has come up empty handed. Do you have any suggestions about where I can find one. Thank you so much.

    • No, unfortunately I have not seen a jello mold like that. The only thing I can suggest is to do a search for cake pans instead. And if you do manage to find one, I also suggest that you make the jello in two layers; use opaque jello (mixed with sweetened condensed milk, yogurt, or ice cream) for the numbers and clear jello on the bottom to really make the numbers stand out. Good luck!

  9. I really loved this recipe! im going to try to make this as soon as posible! i just have a question, do you need to mix the sweetened condensed milk and the ice cream with the jello or just the ice cream? could you clear that up for me? thank you a lot :)

    • Yeah, I just noticed there is an omission in the recipe. Since I first made this recipe I have revised it and replaced the sweetened condensed milk with sugar for a more stable consistency. Here is the revised recipe: Thanks and good luck!

      Cookies and Cream Jello

      3 packages of Knox plain gelatin
      3/4 cup cold water
      1 3/4 cups boiling water
      2 cups (1 pint) cookies and cream ice or vanilla cream
      3/4 cup sugar
      1 bag of mini Oreo cookies

      In a small bowl, sprinkle 2 packages of Knox over 1/2 cup cold water until gelatin absorbs the water. Stir in 1 cup boiling water for 2 minutes until the gelatin is fully dissolved. Stir in ice cream and 1/4 cup sugar until the mixture is smooth. Crush up about 1/2 cup of the cookies and stir in. Refrigerate until mixture thickens to a gel. Arrange whole cookies in the bottom of the mold and spoon ice cram into mold over cookies. Refrigerate until set but not firm. (Gelatin should stick to your finger when touched.)

      Meanwhile, in a medium bowl sprinkle 1 package of Knox over 1/4 cup cold water until gelatin absorbs the water. Stir in 3/4 cup boiling water for 2 minutes until the gelatin is fully dissolved. Stir in 1/2 cup sugar until dissolved. Allow to cool to room temp and stir in about 1 1/2 cup crushed cookies. Spoon into mold over ice cram layer and refrigerate until firm.

  10. HI, I am so fascinated by this jello, got to try it. Before that, can you please tell me how big is your mold, like how wide and how tall. And also, just to confirm that the jello is served upside down?

    • This recipe calls for a four cup mold. If you are not sure how many cups your mold has, fill it with water one or two cups at a time using a measuring cup. And yes, once you are ready to unmold the jello, you will invert the jello mold onto a plate after dipping it warm water for 15 seconds. So… technically the jello is right-side-up and you make it up-side-down. ;)
