When was the last time you made an icebox cake? This retro dessert stands the test of years: turns out it’s not only delicious when you’re a kid but also when you’re all grown up, like us. It’s also still plenty fun to make by layering ultra-thin cookies and sweet whipped cream and then leaving the two-ingredient dish to “cook” overnight in the fridge. By morning, there’s a delicious cake just waiting to be sliced and eaten at summer dinner parties and birthdays.
I made this Peanut Butter Icebox Cake for First We Feast using chocolate wafers and delicious peanut butter whipped cream. Find the recipe and check out my step-by-step photos over in First We Feast’s slideshow.
