Salted Caramel Oreo Icebox Cake

This is another one of the recipes I chose for the dessert course of the teen progressive dinner back in February: Salted Caramel Oreo Icebox Cake.  Most teens love coffee as well as chocolate, and this has just enough of a coffee flavor to be barely noticeable.

For this recipe I again turned to Inside BruCrew Life and Jocelyn's inspired recipes.  She has a number of recipes for icebox cakes, and I will be posting about a couple of more of them in days to come.  They are made with oreos dipped in milk (or coffee, in this case), layered with cheesecake filling and various toppings, then chilled thoroughly so they cut like a cake.

I made this in a 9-inch square baking dish and it was the first dessert to disappear from the chocolate buffet I had prepared for the teens.  So the next week, I doubled the recipe for a 13x9-inch pan and took it to our weekly potluck lunch at church.  Again, a huge hit!

If you think you would not care for the coffee flavor in this, just dip the oreos in milk instead of coffee.  It's good either way!  I think a combination of coffee and milk might work well, too.

For more dessert inspiration, check out my Sweet Treats Pinterest board.  You will find dozens of new ideas!


  1. Yum!! Coffee and Chocolate are my two favorite flavors!

  2. the combination of coffee and chocolate...mocha, right? And I really like ice box cakes.

  3. It really is a great recipe. Very quick and easy to put together and make ahead. As I mentioned, Jocelyn has several icebox cake recipes on her site. I adapted one using strawberries last week, and hope to post about it soon. It was so good!

  4. Yay!!! I am so glad to hear the ice box dessert has been such a hit every time you make it. It is definitely one of my favorites!!!

  5. Thanks for visiting, Jocelyn! It's an honor to have you here at my kitchen table. I turn to your recipes first when I need an idea for a sweet treat. Have you ever thought about writing a cookbook?
