Kids in the Kitchen – Cookies and Cream

No bake. Three ingredients. Guaranteed hit. Plus, it is so much fun for children to make!

All I have to do is get the ingredients out and instantly there appear volunteers from the audience. Dressed the part, even! Chef hat and all.

Children of all ages love to dip cookies in milk!

Perfect to let the children make for a summer party.

Either the chocolate chip or the chocolate sandwich cookie variety work well. Plus, no one can tell if you use the on-sale, off-brand store bought cookies and whipped cream. Go frugal all the way! Whatever you pick, the taste is a treat.

In our house Cookies and Cream is so beloved, our eldest requested it rather than a cake for her birthday last year!

Cookies and Cream

Yield – 8-10 servings

Preparation Time – 5 minutes

Refrigeration Time – Best after chilled at least an hour so that cookies soften.


  • 1 package store-bought chocolate chip or chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 1 large tub frozen whipped cream (16 oz)
  • 1 cup milk, for dipping


  • Let frozen whipped cream thaw a bit so that it is easy to spread.
  • Pour about a cup of milk into a small bowl.
  • Dip a cookie in milk, turning over to coat each side.
  • Fill bottom of serving bowl with a layer of milky cookies.
  • Spread a layer of whipped cream.
