oreo and brownie ice cream dessert 4I certainly hope you like Oreo cookies, because this ice cream dessert has enough to satisfy even the biggest sweet tooth. And brownie lovers, meet your new best friend…this dessert has a brownie crust smothered in Hershey’s syrup and topped with vanilla ice cream.  This recipe was created by my sister who loves baking brownies.  She is always trying and comparing different recipes: boxed or homemade, double batch or single batch, frosted or unfrosted.  So when it was time for her oldest daughter’s birthday she got out her favorite boxed brownies and started layering on the chocolate syrup and ice cream until she had created this heavenly frozen dessert.  When I tasted it at that party, I knew I had to share it here on my blog.  So get out your Oreo cookies and let’s get cooking.

Now top the Oreo layer with the remaining ice cream and then crush up the 18 remaining Oreo cookies in the package and top them on the ice cream layer.  (Tip: you can always place the dessert back in the freezer while you are crushing the Oreos so it doesn’t melt too much.)
