Cookies & Cream Frosting {Recipe}

Several weeks ago, I made a caramel buttercream that quickly rose to the top as my absolute favorite frosting.

But… that was before I made this.

Cookies & Cream Frosting.

Y’all.  This frosting is amazing.  I made it to go on top of a Cookies & Cream Cake I was baking, but I literally could have sat there and ate it with a spoon… or dipped a huge stack of Oreo’s in it.  You choose.

It would be so good on so many things.

Cookies & Cream Frosting


  • 6 tbsp. butter at room temperature
  • 8 oz. cream cheese at room temperature
  • 4 cups of powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp. heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup crushed Oreo’s

Start by combining your butter and cream cheese.  I did this with the paddle attachment on my stand mixer.  Make sure the two are completely combined.

Add in the powdered sugar.  Mix this in slowly so you don’t send a white cloud flying all over your kitchen.  After it’s been well-incorporated with the butter and cream cheese, add in the heavy whipping cream.  Mix well, scraping the sides of your bowl as you go.  Mix until the frosting reaches a light and fluffy consistency.

Now it’s time to add the crushed cookies.  Fold the cookie pieces into the frosting.
