How To Make Rolled Ice Cream
1. Prepare the ice cream base. Mix the heavy cream with the condensed milk in a large bowl. Pour the mixture into a baking tray - or quarter sheet pans - and pop it in the freezer for 10 minutes.
2. Add the Oreos. Remove it from the freezer and add the Oreos on top. Chop and mix the Oreos with an offset spatula - or sharp edged spatula - combining it well with the creamy base.
3. Freeze. Put the ice cream in the freezer for 5 hours or overnight until it's solid.
4. Roll the ice cream. Remove the ice cream from the freezer and place it on a flat surface covered with a towel. Cut the ice cream with the spatula into strips that are as wide as the spatula. Roll the ice cream with the spatula into a thin layer spiral shape. Repeat this with the remaining ice cream.
5. Serve. Transfer the ice cream rolls to a chilled ice cream bowl and top with whipped cream and some extra Oreos or crushed Oreos on top. Enjoy!
