I have made this a few times and it tastes 10 times better if you let it almost totally defrost before serving. (I let it sit out at least 1/2 hour after removing from loaf pan). If you serve right out of the freezer it is kind of tasteless but is delicious when it melts a little. Also I made the mistake of using a store brand once but real Cool Whip tastes much better. Other points I discovered after reading reviews and also making a few times: Get 12 oz. Cool Whip to have enough to use in the recipe and to be able cover the entire loaf at serving time. I use 10 oreos plus 1 1/2 tbsp. butter for a more substantial crust. This keeps well in the freezer. You can make it a couple of weeks in advance so there's one less thing to do when preparing for company. All in all it's a good summer dessert. Read More

I was surprised when we ate this because I felt like basically I was eating strawberry ice cream with crushed oreos. Not bad just why go through the effort if I can buy ice cream that tastes the same? Read More

I made this a few weeks ago for a family BBQ and it was a BIG hit! I used graham cracker crumbs to make the crust. Make sure to line the loaf pan with foil as this helps it to come out easily. I quickly figured out that you could use almost any type of fruit to make this and it would still be super yummy! I'm going to make it again for Memorial Day but I think I'm going to use peaches or mandarin oranges with the graham crust. UPDATE: Me & my big ideas! I made this for a third time using mandarin oranges as I had threatened to do before. It didn't come out so well but I think I know why: using a lg. can of the oranges I did drain the liquid but I think they needed to be drained AGAIN after mashing. The flavor was terrific and after about a full day it was completely frozen but that was just the leftovers--we ate it without the fancy topping anyway and it was a bit more like a really oold yogurt consistency but still very very tasty. So I think I will do it again with a double draining for any type of canned fruit that I might use. Read More

This was delicious the whole family loved it. I substituted fat free condensed milk fat free Cool Whip and about 12 Nabisco Chocolate Wafers to lighten it up a little. Freezes well. Great recipe can't wait to make it again. Read More

This was a hit with my family. Thanks to the other reviews I let it sit out of the freezer for a little while before serving. I also had to use extra cookies for this (12 total). Also I think it wouldn't hurt to get a bigger container of Cool Whip to use for the outer layer (you can use the leftover Cool Whip with the extra Oreo cookies...mmmmm). Next time I will try something else like raspberries. Read More

This was so delicious my family requested we make this again! I followed the directions but did something a litle different since I made this several days ahead of when I wanted to serve it. Since I wasn't sure if the strawberries would last until the serving day I layered those in the pan first before pouring in the cool whip mixture. It didn't look as cute on top but it worked and the dessert stayed fresh until serving time! Chocolate graham crackers worked great instead of oreos. Read More

I served this to friends and they couldn't believe that there wasn't ice cream in it! They left with the recipe. This is the perfect make-ahead dessert for entertaining. I now keep one stashed in my freezer for impromptu guests! Read More
