  • pistachio ice cream 1.5 litres
  • mini Oreos 350g
  • double cream 200ml, softly whipped 
  • melted dark chocolate
  • caramel sauce
  • chopped pistachios


  • Step 1

    Remove the ice cream from the freezer to soften a little while you remove the fillings from the oreos and discard (you just want the biscuit).

  • Step 2

    Line a deep 18cm square or round springform or loose-bottomed cake tin with clingflim, and arrange a neat layer of the biscuits on the bottom. Spoon over a layer of the ice cream, packing it down until even. Add another layer of biscuits, then ice cream, and repeat, finishing with a layer of biscuits. Freeze the cake in between layers if the ice cream is melting too much.

  • Step 3

    Cover with another layer of clingfilm, then freeze for at least 3 hours, or until solid. To serve, tip the cake onto a plate and remove the clingfilm. Top with the whipped cream, drizzle over the melted chocolate, caramel sauce and scatter over chopped pistachios.
