The Freshman Cook: 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! Chocolate Icebox Cake

(printable recipe) 3 cups of Heavy Whipping Cream 2/3 cup sugar 1/2 box of Chocolate Graham Crackers small block of Chocolate  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. 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. Place your graham crackers on top of the whipped cream  in the sequence shown above. 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. 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. Remove cake from pan by lifting the paper. 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.  Cut slices diagonally to show off your beautiful cake! Enjoy! At the beginning of this post I stated that you could make this recipe easier. You can do it by using premade whipping cream! Thanks for stopping by today! Celebrate It! Starts Thursday at 9pm!
