Fun Frozen Treat

I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! I took a mini blog break to enjoy all of the food and festivities. Now that I am back, I wanted to share this perfect summertime frozen dessert that I took to a cookout on Saturday. It is easy and oh so yummy!

Cookies & Cream Freeze

4 squares semi-sweet chocolate
14 Oreo cookies, divided
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tub (8 oz.) whipped topping, thawed

Melt chocolate as directed on package; set aside until ready to use. Line 8-1/2x4-1/2-inch loaf pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan. Arrange 8 of the cookies evenly on bottom of pan. Crumble remaining 6 cookies; set aside.

Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in medium bowl with electric mixer until well blended. Stir in whipped topping. Remove about 1-1/2 cups of the cream cheese mixture; place in medium bowl. Stir in melted chocolate.

Spread remaining cream cheese mixture over cookies in pan; sprinkle with crumbled cookies. Gently press cookies into cream cheese mixture with back of spoon; top with chocolate mixture. Cover. Freeze 3 hours or until firm. Remove from freezer about 15 min. before serving; invert onto serving plate. Peel off foil; let stand at room temperature to soften slightly before cutting to serve.
