Cookie Monster Ice Cream

When you think of Cookie Monster, you think of a muppet who is obsessed with cookies, right? This means when you think of this recipe, you think of an ice cream that has a ton of cookies in it. You're exactly right.

Freeze Time 6 hrs
Total Time 6 hrs 20 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 12 Oreo cookies, crushed
  • 12 chocolate chip cookies, crushed
  • 1 and ½ cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 ounces)
  • 1 and ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2-3 drops blue food coloring

Instructions
 

  • Add your Oreos and chocolate chip cookies to a zip lock bag and crush them using a rolling pin.
  • In your stand mixer, whip up your heavy whipping cream until barely soft peaks form, or until it doubles in size.
  • Add in the vanilla extract and food coloring and and whisk until stiff peaks form.
  • Add in the sweetened condensed milk and whisk until fully combined.
  • Gently fold in the cookies. Add the ice cream into an airtight container and freeze for at least 6 hours. Best over night.

Notes

  • If you don't feel comfortable using food coloring in your desserts, no worries. Freeze-dried blueberries will be able to create that bright blue color you're looking for.
  • If you notice in step 2 of the directions, I said to whip until stiff peaks form, but I prefer to whip it a little more than stiff peaks because once you add in the sweetened condensed milk, the peaks will deflate a little bit. This way you can get nice stiff peaks towards the end. Another option is to fold in the condensed milk without using the mixer, but using a mixer is always easier.
  • I use store-bought chocolate chip cookies and Oreos. You can use any type of cookies you want. I don't recommend using homemade cookies because the soft texture of the homemade cookie won't hold up well in ice cream.
