Cookies & Cream Jello

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.

    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

  2. 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.

    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 🙂

    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?
