Have you ever tried icebox cake? Have you ever tried making icebox cake? Are you like many people who respond, “What’s an icebox cake?” Well, for the uninitiated let me bring you into the loop. Icebox cake is a chilled or frozen dessert where cookies are layered with some form of whipped cream. The whole thing is refrigerated or frozen and then sliced into servings. The cream provides just enough moisture to slightly soften the cookies, and the result is delightful. The textural contrast and flavor combination make this particular version irresistible. Dark chocolate wafer cookies (homemade if you like, store bought can work too) are layered with salted caramel whipped cream. The whole thing is topped off with coffee whipped cream and guys, what are you even doing if not adding this to your to-make list RIGHT NOW?!
It is no exaggeration when I tell you that this cake disappeared in record time. Everyone who tried it loved it, everyone wanted more. Some people even drove over to my house specifically to get some before it was gone and declared it worth the trip. I adore the chocolate and caramel combo but it can sometimes be too rich. This has just the right amount of decadence without being cloying. While this particular version is going to be in high demand in my home from here on out and is sure to grace many parties, my wheels are already turning with ideas about what combination to try next. There are just so many possibilities! This brilliant version from Zoë Bakes was a great place to start.
