No Bake But Loads of Taste: 7 Twists on the Classic Icebox Cake
Chocolate Chip Cookie Icebox Cake
Swap out the traditional chocolate wafers for chocolate chip cookies that you build into a tall confection with a mixture of mascarpone and cream. If you're feeling extra daring, add a tablespoon of whiskey to the cream mixture to put this cake over the top.
Chocolate, Banana, and Graham Cracker Icebox Cake
How about graham crackers? Here they star in a molded icebox cake with bananas and a chocolaty pudding-like filling. We bet you can't have just one slice!
Chocolate Peanut-Butter Icebox Cake
Enhancing the original, this four-ingredient recipe adds peanut butter to the chocolate wafer mix. The hardest part: Waiting while it sets up in the refrigerator.
Chocolate-Chestnut Mousse Cake
Sweet roasted chestnuts pull double duty here: they're teamed with whipped cream for one layer of the cake, and stirred into melted bittersweet chocolate for another.
Chocolate-Ricotta Icebox Cake
Not free-form like most icebox cakes, this decadent chocolate creation is molded in a springform pan. Mixing the cream with ricotta and melted chocolate makes an extra-luscious filling.
Chocolate-Mint Icebox Cake
Not only are icebox cakes no-bake, but they need to be made ahead, leaving you plenty of time for last-minute salads and grilling. The twist to this recipe: Mint extract is added to heavy cream and gives this dessert a refreshing finish.
Independence Icebox Cake
This colorful icebox cake calls for vanilla wafers, not chocolate, and pairs them with a patriotic fresh berry topping. It's perfect for any summer festivity, not just the Fourth of July!
