This has been made for many a birthday party in my family! Very rich, kids love it. Most of the cooking time is *freezer* time.

I got this recipe from my mom a long time ago and had it written down, but couldn't find it. I was happy to find it here! Just wanted to share a modification I've done a few times. My wife loves mint chocolate chip ice cream. So I've made a mint version. Follow the same recipe, but substitute mint Oreos for the regular ones and add about 16-20 Andes mints to the chocolate sauce mixture. Then use mint chocolate chip ice cream. I usually top the cool whip by sticking another Andes mint in every piece. It's extremely minty, but very good if mint is your thing.
