Peanut Butter Oreo Icebox Cake Recipe
Today I’m sharing this easy peanut butter Oreo icebox cake. It’s basically a homemade peanut butter ice cream cake that’s smooth, creamy and stuffed with layers of Oreo cookies. And best of all – it takes under 15 minutes to prepare.
Ps – it’s Fiona from Just So Tasty stopping in. This summer, icebox cakes have been my go-to dessert. They’re so easy to make, completely no bake, and no one can turn down a slice.
Whether it’s a Classic Icebox Cake, lemon icebox cake or s’mores icecream cake – no bake desserts are perfect for summer. And since peanut butter is probably my favorite thing on earth – it was definitely time to make this peanut butter Oreo icebox cake.
It has layers of creamy peanut butter filling, alternating with layers of Oreo cookies. It basically tastes in between a peanut butter cheesecake and a peanut butter ice cream cake – which is a very good thing.
For this peanut butter icebox cake – we’re making it in a loaf pan. I used an 8 inch loaf pan, but a 9 inch pan will work just fine too.
The peanut butter filling is super easy and only needs 4 ingredients:
- whipping cream
- cream cheese
- peanut butter
- powdered sugar
How to Make Peanut Butter Oreo Icebox Cake
- First beat the whipping cream until stiff peaks form. If you prefer whipped topping (such as cool whip) feel free to use it instead.
- Then in a separate bowl beat together the cream cheese, peanut butter and powdered sugar.
- Last but not least, mix the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture.
From there, it’s time to assemble. Line the loaf pan with 2 sheets of parchment paper (or aluminum foil) so that there’s an overhang on each side. Then alternated between adding a layer of Oreo cookies with a layer of peanut butter filling.
Feel free to use whatever variety of Oreos is your favorite – plain, peanut butter or double stuffed work perfectly. Before adding each Oreo cookie, it gets dipped in a little milk first to soften the cookies. This step is super important so that you can easily slice the cake.
Then it goes in the freezer to harden for about 4 hours (or more). You can also let it set in the fridge if you prefer a softer consistency, instead of a consistency that’s more like ice cream.
Then for the toppings!!!! You can either add the toppings right before serving, or do it ahead of time. I like to add crushed Oreos, peanuts & chocolate sauce. But it’s totally up to you. Peanut butter cups, Reese’s Pieces, or chocolate chips are also delicious options.
This peanut butter Oreo icebox cake is such a delicious treat for summer, or whenever you’re looking for an easy no bake peanut butter treat. With peanut butter, whipped cream, Oreo cookies and chocolate sauce – you really can’t go wrong!

- To assemble the cake, dip each Oreo in milk first. Place a layer of Oreo cookies into the bottom of the pan, then spread about 1/3 of the butter (about 1 cup) on top. Repeat with a layer of Oreos dipped in milk, followed by about 1/3 of the batter. Repeat with another layer of Oreos & the rest of the peanut butter filling.

Greetings Pinky Girl 🙋♀ that was the name of my very 1st puppy!)
If I wanted just the peanut butter icebox cake, are there anything different I need to do? I love peanut butter and would like to just have it ALL peanut butter. Thanks!
I haven’t made it without the cookies (or some type of cookie) before. But I can’t see why it wouldn’t work!
Can you just use cool whip instead of, more or less, making cool whip??
Yes, you can! Enjoy!
