Chocolate Icebox Cake

With the heat of summer bearing down on us right now in North Carolina, I thought the time was right for a Chocolate Icebox Cake! Simple to make, and yummy to eat, there is no baking involved. So your kitchen will not have to feel the heat, and neither will you! This icebox cake has 4 ingredients, and if you want to make it even simpler, you can only use three ingredients. Plus, you probably have most, if not all of them, in your pantry right now!

(printable recipe)
3 cups of Heavy Whipping Cream
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 box of Chocolate Graham Crackers
small block of Chocolate

making whipping cream
 Whip the heavy whipping cream in a large cold bowl.
Start by mixing on low for 2 minutes. Add sugar. Mix on
low for 1 more minute. Turn speed to high, and mix until
cream is thick and about medium stiffness. That means
that the cream will have tips, but they will curl on the end.

parchment paper in a loaf pan
Cut some parchment paper for your loaf pan. You want
the paper to overhang on each strip so you can remove
the cake from the pan.

building the Chocolate Icebox Cake
Place your graham crackers on top of the whipped cream
 in the sequence shown above.

cutting graham crackers
The best way to cut graham crackers so they won't break
is to use a serrated knife and slowly saw along the
graham crackers seams.

building a Chocolate Icebox Cake
Pipe your whipping cream on to the top of the graham crackers.
Place another sequence of graham crackers on top of the whipped cream .
Then continue with more whipped cream, and another layer of graham
crackers. You should have 4 layers of whipping cream and 4 layers of
graham crackers.

Chocolate Icebox Cake
Remove cake from pan by lifting the paper.

Chocolate Icebox Cake
Place a layer of whipped cream on the plate you want to serve the
cake on. Make the layer the same size as the cake, and place the
cake on top of the cream, so the cream becomes the bottom layer.
 Place a thick layer of whipping cream on the top layer of graham
 crackers. Cover cake with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3-4 hrs
 or overnight. Decorate with shaved chocolate just before serving.
