Step By Step  

A creamy orange version of this easy, freezy cake.

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

When I was a kid, Grandma had a giant freezer in the back of her garage. One of those wide, industrial white ones, with a lid that lifted from the top. Whenever we’d visit her farm, while the adults settled in with lemonade on the back porch, we kids would sneak outside to see what was inside that big old freezer.

There were always Creamsicles™. We’d peel away the paper wrapper to enjoy the sticky-sweet orange pops with a creamy layer of vanilla ice cream hidden inside. Sitting in the steaming heat of August at Grandma’s dusty farm, hidden away by the hay bales, we ate and made sweet memories, I can’t imagine a more refreshing retro flavor than classic Creamsicles™!

Whether you snuck one from Grandma’s freezer, bought them from a roving ice cream man, or just love to buy boxes when they go on sale, there’s no denying the Creamsicle™ flavor combo is a total favorite.

Which is why I decided to turn it into our favorite frozen crunch cake. On the heels of our famous Strawberry Crunch Cake, we decided it was high time there was a creamy orange version of this easy, freezy cake.

Get ready for bright mandarins, folded into a sweet whippy center spiked with Orange Crème Yoplait™ yogurt and sandwiched between two layers of streusel. OMG—prepare to feel like a kid again. No lifting the top on Grandma’s giant freezer required!

Here’s your ingredient line-up! All really basic baking stuff.

Start by crushing the Chex® granola in a blender or food processor. You want to create really fine crumbs, so just rock and roll with that puree button until you’ve got a nice, fine mix.

Mix with butter and sugar, then press half of your mixture into the bottom of an 8x8-inch baking dish.

Whip together the cream cheese, whipped topping, sugar, and Yoplait Orange Crème yogurt, then fold in a can of mandarin oranges. Bowl licking is highly encouraged—this filling is pretty irresistible.

Time to spread it! Pop your entire batch of filling on top of your crust and spread until even.

Then top it all off with the second half of your streusel and freeze. It’s seriously that simple.

All that’s left to be done now is slice and serve. And grab a fork, of course. Enjoy!
