oatmeal cookie chunk ice cream

Believe me when I tell you this is the best ice cream ever. My favorite ice cream flavor is Ben & Jerry's Oatmeal Cookie Chunk Ice Cream with sweet cream cinnamon ice cream with oatmeal cookie chunks and fudge. After moving to Charlotte from Raleigh last year I quickly learned that this ice cream flavor was going to be impossible to find. Having lived in Charlotte for over a year now, I had to get my fix somehow. The sweet cream cinnamon base alone is so rich, creamy and sweet that it would make me happy with no add-ins but throw in crispy, chewy oatmeal cookies and it is one of my all-time favorite desserts. And because I had full control of the amount of cookie chunks, I loaded them in so I wouldn't have to dig through the ice cream to find them like I do in a Ben & Jerry's pint. I also took the semi-homemade approach with this ice cream and baked Betty Crocker's oatmeal cookies because before I was an avid baker these were my favorite cookies to bake and sometimes still are. If you want to take the 100% homemade approach, these oatmeal cookies would also work perfectly. I decided to omit the chocolate chunks but included it in the recipe so you have the option. The cinnamon sweet cream ice cream base would be great on top of any apple, berry or pumpkin pie too.

Oh and bad news, I bought the waffle bowl so I don't have a recipe for it. I bought it from my favorite frozen yogurt store, Yoforia, and they charge by the ounce making this waffle bowl less than $1. I looked like a total wierdo only buying a waffle bowl (at 10am) but the yoforia guy was so nice about it and even offered to punch my loyalty card for it.  I would love to get a waffle cone maker, it was such a treat and a perfect way to serve ice cream. If only my small kitchen could fit all the unnecessary kitchen appliances I want. 

Oatmeal Cookie Chunk Ice Cream 
makes about 1 quart

2 c. heavy cream
1 c. whole milk
2 eggs
3/4 c. sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
9 oatmeal cookies, broken into small pieces
1/2 c. milk chocolate chunks (optional)

Mix the milk and cream together in a pan over medium-low heat. Heat the milk mixture for 10 minutes or until it reaches 140°F and then remove it from the heat. In a bowl, beat the eggs until lighter in color and fluffy. Add the sugar to the egg mixture very slowly. Then slowly whisk the milk mixture into the egg & sugar mixture to temper the eggs. If you added the milk to the egg mixture quickly then the hot milk would cook the eggs and you would have scrambled eggs, you don't want that! Now add the the entire egg/sugar/milk mixture into a pot and heat over medium-low heat for 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove mixture from the heat and pour it into a clean bowl and refrigerate the mixture for 1 hour. Stir in the cinnamon and freeze the ice cream according to your ice cream maker's manufacturer instructions. I added half of the cold oatmeal cookie pieces into the ice cream mixture 5 minutes before it was done mixing and then folded in the rest after removing the ice cream from the ice cream maker.


  1. This sounds perfect for me Shannon! I love oatmeal cookies. I haven't tried that flavor of Ben and Jerry's, I'll have to look for it!

  2. Oh my gosh I LOVE it! I did love the B & J flavor! MMMMM

  3. This makes me want to get an ice cream maker even more now! Hubby and I were just talking about it! I cant eat chocolate so this sounds perfect...I had no idea there were eggs in ice cream?

  4. I only recently was introduced to oatmeal cookie ice cream. Love it!

  5. @Samantha @ Ferrro Kitchen You won't regret buying an ice cream maker! And the eggs make the ice cream super creamy and reduce the amount of ice crystals.

  6. YUM! This looks like a fantastic ice oatmeal cookies...

  7. I don't think we have that flavour in the UK :( but I'd rather make my own anyway and this recipe looks yummy! :D Your photo is lovely too :)

  8. I have never see nor tasted this wonderful ice cream-I have been missing out! So glad you posted this, I have saved it. Your picture alone tells me it is really worth trying. Buzz Buzz!

  9. Omgggggggggggggggg I would love this as im a lover of allk those flavors

  10. AMAZING! I just got an ice cream maker and super excited to try delicious recipes like this! I am def going to make this!

  11. @Ashley @peaceloveyumminess Ashley, let me know what you think after you make it! I don't think I will ever need to make another ice cream flavor after this one, it's pretty much my ice cream heaven!

  12. That specific flavor was sent to the graveyard - that is why you've had no luck finding it. Sad - it was delish!

  13. Oatmeal cookies in ice cream form... I LOVE it, I love the smell of oatmeal, this is truly decadent.

  14. Oatmeal Cookie Chunk is my all time favorite! They don't have it in Chapel Hill anymore either. I can't wait to try this out!

  15. You could have the best of both and make your Chocolate & Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal Cookies to include in the Oatmeal Cookie Chunk Ice Cream. That sounds like a win win combo.

  16. @Anonymous You're right, that would probably be the best combo ever!

  17. Oh yum. That ice cream looks and sounds delicious. I made homemade ice cream bowls this summer, without the use of a waffle cone maker. Check it out here:

  18. Oh my gosh, just the idea of this recipe has me salavating. Two of my favorite things wrapped up together!

    I don't know if I've told you this before or not but you have a super cute blog!

  19. Awesome! Ben & Jerry's Oatmeal Cookie Crunch ice cream is my FAVORITE and haven't been able to find it here. Thank you for the recipe! I tried it, using the ingredients (I didn't heat anything up though, just mixed everything together, except for the cookie & chocolate pieces which I still added five mins before it was done mixing) and it turned out perfectly!

  20. I made this last night and I must say that it is the best homemade ice cream that I have ever made/tasted! I actually made the base and cookies one night and then mixed it the next evening during a dinner party. The guests loved it but the best part was that it was even better the next day when I tried the leftovers. Typically I am not a fan of leftover homemade ice cream as it seems to lack that creamy quality, which I enjoy, but this was not only creamy the next day but the cookies had time to soften more. The only modification I made was the addition of some vanilla. I was so disappointed when Ben & Jerry's stopped making their Oatmeal Cookie ice cream but now I can enjoy it at home whenever I want.

  21. Yay!!! It's my favorite Ben and Jerry's flavor as well. I've been wanting to make something similar with my new ice cream maker. Thank you!

  22. Best ice cream flavor ever.

    It never occurred to me to make it on my own since the B+J version is impossible to find.


  23. What is the option for the people who doesn't eat eggs? any substitute?

  24. Thank-you for posting this!!! I too LOVE this flavor, and love making homemade ice cream, so I was hoping someone else had been in the same quandry and had figured it out! To Anonymous @ 8/20/12 at 12:01PM, you can use eggbeaters if you're concerned about salmonella, or you can omit the eggs but it won't be quite as rich.
