Engine Oil In Cooling System

Anyone run into the problem of engine oil getting into their cooling system?

We have an '04 Hemi Durango that went through 1.5 quarts of oil in 4 weeks but didn't burn or leak any. All this engine oil seems to have to gone into the cooling system and has contaminated the antifreeze.

Ironically it still runs good.
I suspect the root cause is it got overheated a time or two.

Could it be a leaking head gasket or warped/cracked head or a cracked block?
Other possiblities?

Those are all good possibilities. Is there coolant on the oil dipstick too?

There's no sign at all of coolant in the oil.
However the coolant looks like an oily chocolate milkshake.
