I accidentally made you a St. Patrick's Day dessert. See my post for more (ridiculous) details, but in the meantime, here's the recipe.

Who knew 4 ingredients could taste so good? Icebox cakes pack a ton of bang for their buck -- they are surprisingly delicious and require barely any effort at all. Enjoy!





Bailey's Mint Oreo Icebox Cake

Recipe by: Willow Bird Baking
Yield: 4-6 servings

Ingredients:
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup Bailey's Irish Cream (I used Hazelnut flavor)
1 package mint Oreos
chopped Andes mints (optional topping)

Directions:
Whip the cream, powdered sugar, and Bailey's Irish Cream together in a chilled bowl to stiff peaks. In a loaf pan lined with parchment paper, layer mint Oreos and Bailey's whipped cream, starting with Oreos and ending with cream. Cover and refrigerate overnight. When ready to serve, invert onto a platter and top with chopped Andes Mints if desired.










To really understand me as a person (through a discussion of Oreos), see what Oreos have to do with Scrooge McDuck, and see more photos, please head over to Willow Bird Baking!

I wish they sold all those Oreo flavours in Canada! I want them all, but especially the lemon and coconut versions!

Does it have to be mint Oreos? Can it be birthday Oreos or even just plain vanilla creme? Also, is it only Bailey's Irish creme or can we use another brand?

Sure, can use any oreos and any liqueur, really. Switch up flavors to your heart's content. Recently I posted a cherry birthday cake oreo icebox cake (http://willowbirdbaking.com/2014/02/24/cherry-icebox-birthday-cake/). Lemon golden oreo would be lovely.

Here's a regular spiked icebox cake: http://willowbirdbaking.com/2013/01/06/boozy-icebox-cake/

Limoncello shortbread icebox cake: http://willowbirdbaking.com/2013/06/26/limoncello-spiked-shortbread-icebox-cake-with-fresh-raspberries/ (this one was soooo good)

The sky's the limit! Enjoy :)

Any non-alcoholic version you can recommend as a substitute? Or with the liquor, is the alcohol powerful enough for it to be tasted in it?

You can taste the alcohol. If you'd rather it not be spiked, just leave the alcohol out entirely -- any of these work with just the cream and oreos and any extracts you want to flavor (for instance, for lemon, add 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract and maybe some zest if you have it to the cream).

For regular vanilla cream, use vanilla extract. There are coconut, peppermint, orange, lemon, raspberry, coffee, hazelnut, etc. etc. etc. extracts :) Lots to choose from if you're interested in trying out some different flavor profiles.

Ooh, thanks a lot! I think I'll experiment with the cream a bit, just to try some variations.

Again, thanks for the tips! :-)

Sure :) A good rule of thumb I use is about 1/2 t of any extract for 2 c cream. Hope you enjoy!
