CLASSIC OREO ICEBOX DESSERT

I have been craaaaaaving  this Oreo icebox dessert for about a month now, ever since our end-of-school ice cream party when my 'room mom' brought in Oreos for the students to put on their ice cream.  Yes, I'm highly suggestible ... advertising works very well on me, especially when there's chocolate involved.
