This super creamy, delicious White Chocolate Oreo Ice Cream takes only 5 minutes and 4 ingredients to make!
As Chocolate Week comes to a close (how sad!) I want to share with you all this ice cream, which is my best friend Paige’s absolute favorite thing I’ve ever made. And she’s tried just about everything I’ve ever made…ever. This ice cream, as well as this post, is dedicated to her.
I know some people like to consider their friends as their chosen family, but in my case, friends have come and go, whereas my family has always been there. I’ve had ups and downs in my life, and in my downs, friends have tended to go and been replaced with new friends as I got better. Friendships I thought would last forever faded away until all that was left is good memories.
It might sound like I’m bitter, but I’m not. Each friend I’ve had has taught me something integral as to how to live my life today and none of those friendships has ever ended terribly, with a major fight or anything. It was always more of two people changing, evolving, and just naturally growing apart.
However, Paige has always been there, through the good, the bad, the everything. Paige and I have known each other since Kindergarten, and been inseparable since. We’ve had brief periods where we weren’t constantly together, but she’s always been one person that I can always rely on and talk to about absolutely everything – the good, the bad, and the ugly.
She knows all my biggest fears, goals, and insecurities. She knows every embarrassing moment I’ve ever had, and been present for most of them. And vice versa…neither of us are known as the most graceful people around. If she ever decided to blackmail me…well, I’d probably die of embarrassment. I can only imagine the things she has on me.
When we’re together, we’re like two peas and a pod. With me being 5’0″ and her clocking in at 4’11”, we always get comments about how darn short we are, but being together, both of us feel normal sized! Works out perfectly.
Spending so much time together, we tend to be obscenely similar. We make the same jokes (and tend to be the only people who laugh at them), we love most of the same foods, and we both loved baked goods (me the baking, her the eating).
What most of you probably don’t realize is the incredible impact she has had on this site. Before her, I could care less what a cake looked like. It was all about the taste. However, Paige and her mom are absolutely the most creative people on the planet and though both rather bad bakers (except for their oatmeal chocolate chip cookies…yum!), they make the most stunning baked goods and food displays. I envy them, so naturally I make them help me.
I’m definitely not the best froster in the world, but I am a slight control freak so I don’t let her touch the actual frosting of the cake, but all the cake toppers I use? All Paige. If you saw my 100th Post Cake, yeah well, Paige spent a while cutting out all those hearts and hot glueing them onto sticks. She’s beyond amazing and has so many phenomenal ideas.
The flowers on this cake were also her ideas, and I absolutely love the way that cake ended up looking. Girl is a creative genius and is constantly dreaming up new ways for me to decorate cakes (not minding the fact that I definitely cannot execute her innovations). She helps style tons of my shoots (and holds up the poster boards in the back of most of them…) and is constantly lending me props, cake stands, and cute knick knacks to put in pictures. She’s also a sort-of baking assistant, as in she actually helps when I ask her to get stuff for me in my not-so-nice-I’m-baking-right-now voice. All in all, she’s a life saver, and me, and Bakerita, would not be the same without her.
I’m currently planning a makeover for Bakerita, and of course Paige is helping me with everything – from the colors, to the layout, to the logo. With her on my side, it will definitely be amazing. I truly can’t express how much Paige, and all of her help, love, and support have meant to me over the years. She’s a part of my family and I can’t imagine my life without her. Love you Paige!
Because I love her so darn much…I just knew I had to make her her favorite ice cream when she told me her wisdom teeth were coming out. I made this ice cream one time, forever ago, and since then she has firmly stated that this was her favorite thing I’ve ever made. Ever. Honestly, I was nervous to make it again. I never wrote down the recipe but knew that base I used (so easy!), and the standard was set so high.
I winged it, and when Paige took a bite, all hallucinating on pain medication and looking like a little chipmunk, I was so relieved when she exclaimed that it was just as good as she remembered. Thank goodness. She reconfirmed again when she wasn’t high on drugs, just so we’re clear.
This ice cream is sweet, but it is really good. Somehow, sweetened condensed milk and whipped cream make a silky smooth, creamy, delicious ice cream when frozen. While I love these flavors, you can eliminate the white chocolate and Oreos and add whatever flavors you want. It’s truly a super simple, super delicious ice cream recipe that’s so adaptable! Hope you enjoy as much as Paige did!
