Gluten Free Oreo Ice Cream Cupcakes
Cookies and cream gets to go gluten free with these easy but delicious Gluten Free Oreo Ice Cream Cupcakes!
It’s been a really hot couple of days and we’re keeping them cool with these Gluten Free Oreo Ice Cream Cupcakes! Super simple, and takes only about 15 minutes to make. The only down side is how long it has to freeze before they are ready to enjoy, but definitely worth the wait.
When it comes to ice cream, I am a purist and I love the plain old traditional vanilla. But every once in a while I really enjoy something different and my other go to flavour was always cookies and cream. As you know that flavour is not gluten free, so when the gluten free oreos came out and A.S. Brydens and Sons Ltd. reached out, I decided to create my own and make these Gluten Free Oreo Ice Cream Cupcakes.
This recipe was actually inspired by one I found by The Pioneer Woman, and although the basics are the same, we made a few tweaks to make them just how we liked.
How to make these Easy Gluten Free Oreo Ice Cream Cupcakes?
You will need:
- Gluten Free Oreos – if you’re in Trinidad these are available nationwide in the groceries.
- Melted Coconut oil or butter
- Your favorite vanilla ice cream
- A 12 cup muffin pan with liners
- Sprinkles and whipped cream, cause why not indulge?!?!?
How to make these Gluten Free Oreo Cups?
First you need to crush the Oreos, either in a food processor or in a ziplock bag using a rolling pin. I like this option because I get to work out a little frustration hammering away.
Next, transfer to a bowl, add the coconut oil or melted butter. Mix well then divine evenly among the 12 lined cups, pressing down to make a nice firm crust. Then to make the ice cream topping, mix the vanilla ice cream with some chopped Oreos, spoon over the crust, add some more Oreo chunks, freeze and enjoy.
How easy is that? That’s what I love about this recipe. It is super easy, but delicious and makes the perfect summer or hot day treat! And if you’re looking to make it even more decadent, add some whipped cream and sprinkles, or top with another oreo cookie.
