Berry Oreo Icebox Cake

Layers of Berry Oreo cookies and strawberry cheesecake make this easy, no bake cake completely irresistible!  It is the perfect picnic cake or “just because you feel like it” cake.  Give this Berry Oreo Icebox Cake a try the next time it is too hot to bake.

Oreos and strawberries are the two things that get “stolen” in our house.

I have hiding places for the Oreo cookies, but my children have gotten wise to my ways.  It’s probably definitely time to find a new hiding place…or learn Jedi mind tricks to keep them out of the “blog” food.

And don’t get me started on the strawberries.  There are only so many places to “hide” things in a refrigerator.  My little fruit monsters sneak berries like there is no tomorrow.  Not that I mind them eating the healthy stuff!

This dessert was one of those “must make” dessert ideas.  You know the kind that can’t wait any longer!

My hubby and I were running errands and happened to stop in Walmart for a few items for his next trip to Haiti.  (You can read about our past trip HERE and HERE.)

I can’t go in Walmart without going down the cookie and baking aisle.  Seriously, I go down it every.single.time.  It’s not like I don’t know what’s there…I just HAVE to do it!  Perks of having a dessert track mind all the time!

I was really trying to find the new Reese’s Oreos, but unfortunately my store is lame.  No new Oreos for us!

The Berry Oreos are actually a favorite of mine.  I picked up a bag of them…AND then put it back on the shelf.  I know…I can’t believe that either!!!  So of course the next day when my hubby texted me and said he was at Walmart again (yes, we like to make multiple trips and use our gas frivolously) I texted back immediately and asked him to buy 2 packages.

This crazy no bake dessert was slowly taking shape in my head.  It was one of those ideas that had to be made that very minute.  Well, the minute he got home with the cookies that is.  Most of the time I have a reason or place for a dessert.  This time it was purely because I couldn’t get this dessert out of my head.

I don’t know who’s idea it was first to dunk Oreos in milk and layer them with a Cool Whip based mixture…but clearly that person was a genius!!!

For the layers in between the cookies, I made a no bake strawberry cheesecake.  Cream cheese, mashed strawberries, a little bit of sugar, and some Cool Whip all whipped together makes a pretty tasty no bake cheesecake.

The dark pink berry Oreos, light pink cheesecake, and white Cool Whip gave this dessert the prettiest neapolitan look when you cut into it.  I may have done a happy dance when I cut…ok, when I butchered this cake trying to get a good piece for the pictures.  It still tastes good even when hacked to pieces.  #lifeofafoodblogger

More fresh berries on top totally made this dessert a winner.  You could even use raspberries if you wanted.  I had a hard time not eating very much of this yummy cake.  Between the youth group girls and my son, it was gone in record time!

Hooray for yummy dessert ideas that come to life and are better than you imagined!

Lemon Cream Berry Pie

This easy Lemon Cream Berry Pie has a layer of no bake cheesecake, lemon pudding, and Cool Whip.  Almost entirely no bake, this pie is so easy to make and have on hand for dessert.

Lemon Cream Berry Pie - layers of no bake cheesecake, lemon pudding, and berries makes this a delicious and pretty summer pie

So this week I decided I wanted pie.

Oh, I didn’t really need this said pie, I just had a craving for it.  What is with pie all of a sudden?  I never used to make it, and now pie cravings have become a real thing.  No wonder I have to work out…my eating doesn’t stay clean for very long at all.  #foodbloggerproblems


Lemon Cream Berry Pie - layers of no bake cheesecake, lemon pudding, and berries makes this a delicious and pretty summer pie

My husband just laughs and laughs at me when I mention that I am giving up sugar.  He knows that resolve is only going to last a day or two.  If that :-)

In fact, I think I may have just said that again yesterday.  Since it is still bright and early in the day as I write this, I am doing good.  As long as I stay out of the kitchen I might make it.

Of course we have a picnic to attend tonight…and I know there will be goodies.  Darn you baking craze…I made a new version of peanut butter bars to share with everyone.  Haha!  Now you probably want PB bars!  If you were here, I would most definitely force a few upon you.

Lemon Cream Berry Pie - layers of no bake cheesecake, lemon pudding, and berries makes this a delicious and pretty summer pie
Well, there I go again getting distracted.  You are here for pie, and all I’m doing is going on and on about peanut butter bars.  Sorry!  (come back later next month for the bar recipe)

You know the Disney movie UP?  Yeah, my brain is a lot like Doug’s.  Squirrel! (totally said with wide eyes while looking around)

So, pie.  I kept thinking about this Coconut Fudge Pie from a few months ago, and finally decided to recreate it with a summery twist.  Lemon, berries, and almost no bake.  It’s most definitely a sumer pie you are going to love.

Lemon Cream Berry Pie - layers of no bake cheesecake, lemon pudding, and berries makes this a delicious and pretty summer pie
I realize that there are more pictures in this post than normal.   This pie was just so photogenic that I ended up with quite a few I loved.  Ok, that made me LOL for real.  I take way too many pictures of all the food I make…I’m just usually better at narrowing them down.  Today you get the bonus few pictures because I was loving how pretty this pie ended up.

Let’s start with the pie crust.  Did you notice that I said this pie was almost no bake?  I did bake a pie crust for it.  If you wanted to go with a graham cracker crust or even a cookie crust, that would make it all the way no bake.  Actually brain fart…this pie made with the Lemon Oreo cookies would be the bomb.com…where was that idea earlier?  But if you like pie crust like me, bake that.  It still tastes crazy good.

Lemon Cream Berry Pie - layers of no bake cheesecake, lemon pudding, and berries makes this a delicious and pretty summer pie

Now for the fun and beautiful layers.  I am such a sucker for layered desserts.  Have you noticed that too?   :-)

The bottom layer is a no bake cheesecake mousse.  Softened cream cheese gets blended with powdered sugar, then Cool Whip is stirred in.  Yes, I use Cool Whip!  In fact, I eat it by the spoonfuls.  I know there are people who have issues with using it…I’m not one of them.  If you are reading this and having a time getting past that ingredient, you could use whipped cream.  But realize that it will affect the texture of the pie.  And I don’t know how long it will hold up in your refrigerator.

I used an instant lemon pudding mix for the middle layer.  Lemon pudding is the sweet and light way to go.  It’s also what I had in my cupboard.  Lemon curd would be awesome for this layer too.  My cupboards really need a detox, so I am trying to use up what I have.  I won’t tell you that I went to the store for the pie crust, Cool Whip, and berries.  This pie is about using up ingredients, and that’s the story I am sticking too.

More Cool Whip covers the entire pie.  Like I said…I’m good with the stuff.  Rows of raspberries and blueberries  around the outside edge give this pie a fun red, white, and blue look.  Ultimately this was the reason for the pie.  I wanted something patriotic for future picnics.  Not tonight’s picnic thought…they get the peanut butter bars I was babbling about earlier because this pie didn’t last too long.  No, I didn’t eat it all :-)  I sent it over with my husband to a church meeting, then afterwards we inhaled the leftovers.

So recap of the pie…
1.  It’s almost no bake making it perfect for the hot summer months.  See my note above about making it totally no bake.
2.  It’s full of Cool Whip…and I love the stuff.
3.  Lemon pudding or lemon curd…either works.
4.  Rows of red and blue berries contrast with the Cool Whip for a fun patriotic dessert.
5.  This pie doesn’t last long.  You might want to make two.

 The past few weeks I have been learning the value to saying no.  I usually just can’t say no when I am asked to do different projects.   You need 10 matching headbands for a wedding party this coming weekend.  Sure I will get right on that.   200 cupcakes for a party you are having…sure, why not.  Ok, ok, those might be slightly embellished examples, but you get the point right?  I don’t like to turn down requests for things I know I can do.

Peanut Butter Snickers Cheesecake Brownie Pie - fudge-y brownie pie topped with a peanut butter Snickers cheesecake and Cool Whip #pie #Snickers #coolwhip

So far in the last 2 weeks, I have said no to 3 large graduation cake orders and a hand picked blog project.  It was hard to say no because I know that I can do them.  The thing of it is that I would be so stressed out trying to finish everything all while doing a wedding cake and packing for our family vacation.  It really was in my best interest and my family’s best interest to not take on that many extra projects.

There were a couple that I thought long and hard about trying to fit in…I mean when someone hand picks you for a special blog job/project, you want to say yes immediately.  After weighing everything, I knew that I just couldn’t put the time and effort into it.  The email I got back from my campaign manager saying how impressed she was that I would say no to something like this, reaffirmed to me that saying no to someone or something is ok to do.

Just a little life lesson that I had this weekend that I thought I would share.

 Something I couldn’t say no to this week…this pie!!!!

Oh, my goodness!

Talk about decadent and delicious!  A thick fudge-y pie topped with peanut butter cheesecake that has Peanut Butter Snickers chunks in it and a layer of Cool Whip on top of it.  Yeah…this had my name all over it.  Well, one slice anyway.  Remember the lesson in saying no…it kind of has to apply to desserts too.  All winter and spring I have not said yes, and well, now I’m not going to be wearing some of my summer clothes from last year.

It’s time to start saying no to the goodness that keeps happening in my kitchen…well, after one slice that is :-)  All in the name of recipe research, right?

Peanut Butter Snickers Cheesecake Brownie Pie

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Yield: 12 slices

Peanut Butter Snickers Cheesecake Brownie Pie

Fudge Brownie pie topped with a peanut butter Snickers cheesecake and Cool Whip is a decadent and delicious dessert.

Ingredients

For the Brownie Layer
1 sheet refrigerated pie crust (I used Pillsbury)
1 brownie mix for 9x13 pan (I used a Pillsbury mix)
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup water
1 egg
For the Cheesecake Layer
1 package cream cheese, softened (8 oz.)
1 egg
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 bag Peanut Butter Snickers Minis, chopped into quarters (11.5 oz.)
Topping
1 container Cool Whip (8 oz.)
2 Tablespoons chocolate sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Let the pie crust sheet sit out on the counter for about 15 minutes. Remove wrapping and unroll gently. Press into a 10 inch pie plate and crimp edges. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the brownie mix, oil, water, and egg. Mix just until combined. It will be very thick. Spoon into pie plate and spread out. Bake at 350* for 35 minutes.
  3. While the brownie pie is cooking, place the cream cheese and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat until creamy. Add the egg, vanilla, and peanut butter and beat again until creamy. Stir in the Snickers candies by hand. When the brownie pie is finished baking, remove from the oven and gently spoon the cheesecake batter on top of the brownie. Spread out very gently. Cover the edges of your crust with foil to keep them from burning. Return to the oven and bake another 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool. Refrigerate until completely cooled. Top with the Cool Whip and sprinkles. Cut into 12 slices. Keep covered in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.

How many of you have had this Snickers Salad before?  It is a definite favorite with our kids.

Of course it always made me laugh every time I heard people talking about this salad, because Snickers and salad just don’t sound right together.  But then I had some of the deliciousness, and I was a believer.   The creamy Jello pudding and Cool Whip mixed with apple chunks and Snickers bars…now that’s the kind of salad I can get behind every night.  That’s one way of having your apple a day right?

The other day I bought more Crunch Pak apples for school lunches and after school snacks.  As much as the kids would like to have cookies and cake every day, we have been trying to enforce more healthy options and I love how convenient the bags are for kids to eat.  Nothing wrong with encouraging the kids to eat more healthy snacks with individual portion sizes. I also picked up an extra bag of apples because I also wanted to make some muffins or bread too.

But then I wandered into the Easter aisles at Walmart, and I had this crazy desire to put Snickers into said muffins or bread.  Of course a bag of those Snickers went into my cart in quite a hurry.  What was that I said about eating more healthy snacks?

Apple Snickers Cake from http://www.insidebrucrewlife - apple cake with Snickers bars baked in and on the pudding layer #apple #Snickers

My husband just shakes his head in disbelief every time I come home with more candy.  I realize I have issues if you are wondering.  This time I was telling him about my crazy need to bake some apple bread with Snickers when he stopped me.  His suggestion was an apple cake with the Snickers Salad on top as frosting.  The more I thought about it, the better it sounded!  Let me tell you people, he is a genius because this cake is simply to die for.

This Apple Snickers Cake is actually quite healthy…if you forget that it has candy bars and sugar in it.  I used a mixture of applesauce and yogurt in place of any oil and butter.  And 3 cups of chopped apples means lots of apple in every bite.  See totally healthy right?  Ok, fine, now you are shaking your head at me in disbelief too.

Whatever. This cake is amazing!  Case closed on whether it is really healthy or not!

Hot Chocolate Cheesecakes

Hot Chocolate Cheesecakes

You look like you could use some sugar.  Maybe some Hot Chocolate Cheesecakes would satisfy that sugar craving?

I’m sure that is what you need.

Hot Chocolate Cheesecakes

Winter is my enemy and I have been drinking lots of coffee and hot chocolate to stay warm.  My body is not loving this 12* stuff.  I know it could be a lot colder, but come on spring.  Please hurry here.

So while I am on this hot chocolate kick, I thought it would be fun to switch out the sugar in my basic cheesecake recipe for hot chocolate mix.  Word to the wise…DON’T try to use a diet hot chocolate mix.  That batch didn’t taste so great!  I also thought it would be a good idea to try to make these skinny-ish!  Again a bad idea!!  Maybe it was the diet hot chocolate mix, but the fat free cream cheese and fat free sour cream DID NOT bake up good at all.  So, I went full fat for these Hot Chocolate Cheesecakes, and they came out just perfect.

Some things aren’t meant to be fat free.  I’m pretty sure cheesecake is one of those.

Hot Chocolate Cheesecakes

Cheesecake is definitely a favorite around our house.   I gave up all thoughts of dieting when these hot chocolate cheesecakes were in my fridge.  Yes, I have will power issues.  The cheesecake wins every time.  Chocolate, cool whip, sprinkles…I couldn’t resist them.  If you make them cupcake size, you don’t feel as guilty eating them.   At least that’s the story I tell myself as I head to the gym again.
