Have you guys heard of an icebox cake? I’ve just recently come across this idea and they are amazing! These would be perfect for high summer, but they’re also pretty awesome just about any time. They’re basically cakes that layer graham crackers and whipped cream/pudding and then you chill for hours until the graham crackers are soft. They’re the perfect cake to make the day before, chill overnight, and then bring to a summer dinner party.
I have been in somewhat of a chocolate mood lately, so I paired chocolate pudding with chocolate graham crackers and then topped it all off with melted chocolate frosting. It was chocolate heaven without being over the top sweet/rich. The main reason that I finally gave these super easy cakes a try was that I still had some Cool Whip left over from this no bake cheesecake and I needed something to do with it. I saw that I had some chocolate pudding in the pantry, went out and picked up the crackers, and was in business!
Heating the chocolate frosting was an interesting idea that I saw on My Baking Addition's website. I’d never have thought to heat up prepared frosting and pour it over something. At first I was a bit skeptical, but it actually melted pretty quickly and poured really smoothly. I might be tempted to use that trick again when I need something quick!
