Is Icebox Cake really a cake? How I make mine...

Oh, a question for the ages...How is icebox cake called a cake, when it doesn't contain any cake? Ultimately, it doesn't really matter when my version of icebox cake tastes as good as it does. *wink*

Icebox cake is pretty much adding a cookie of sorts sandwiched between something creamy (like pudding or whipped topping). 

I grew up making and eating this version of said cake. My mom made it for all occasions and many Holidays. So guess what? Now, I do the same and it is definitely a family fave. It is easy to make but never skimps on flavor.

Ice Box Cake

2 boxes of chocolate pudding (not instant)

1 box vanilla pudding (not instant)

1 box of graham crackers


Line a 9x13 pan with graham crackers. 
You will have to break some into smaller squares to cover the bottom of the pan.

Cook 1 box of chocolate pudding (according to the box directions).

Pour over graham layer.

Put another layer of graham crackers over chocolate pudding.

Cook vanilla pudding.

Pour over grahams.
Place another layer of grahams over vanilla pudding.
Cook last box of chocolate pudding.
Pour over graham layer.
Take a sheet of grahams and press them into crumbs. 
Sprinkle crumbs over the top.
Refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Overnight is best! 
The longer it has a chance to chill, the better it comes together.

** Unfortunately soy milk can not be used for this recipe. Cows milk and almond milk work best.

  • Top the cake with chocolate icing after it is cool…
    for an even sweeter treat!

    • You can use 2 boxes of chocolate pudding and 
      1 box of butterscotch pudding (omitting the vanilla) for a 
      different flavor combo.
