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 fruit like there is no tomorrow. Not that I mind them eating things like these healthy strawberry yogurt parfaits.
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 because I couldn't stop thinking about it. 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 berry Oreo icebox cake. Lucky for me, the youth group girls and my kids had it gone in record time!
Hooray for yummy dessert ideas that come to life and are better than you imagined!

How would I make this dessert in a 9 x 13 pan? I need to make this for my co-workers tomorrow and need it in a bigger pan than 9 x 9.
I would double all the ingredients and layer it all in a 9x13 pan. I hope your co-workers enjoy it!!
Hi, I made this & used half berry Oreo's & half peanut butter Oreo's
Waaaaay good !!
This looks amazing! I am debating making this for my Bday celebration instead of the same old boring Carvel Icecream Cake. But should I really do the work for my own Bday?!
It is totally worth the work of doing your own cake. Plus, this is so easy, so there isn't much work involved!!! I say do it!!! 🙂
I love this idea! So glad you changed your mind and had the hubs pick up a few packages.

Haha, too cute - I would try to sneak these Berry Oreos away from your baking stash if I found them hidden away too 🙂 Love the strawberries and oreos together and awesome idea to use them in an icebox cake! It looks amazing!

Oh my goodness you sound just like me! No matter what store it is, I have to go down the baking aisle. And now I'm definitely going to have to try the Berry Oreos!!
Such a pretty dessert! Two ideas: If it is hard to cut into photogenic slices, could you just kind of scoop it up like cobbler? Or, could you make this in individual glass containers like berry oreo icebox parfait? No matter the form, it is going to taste delicious!!
I like the parfait idea! Thanks Wendy!
