Graham Crackers drizzled in chocolate then layered with fresh whipped cream and cream cheese;
add sweet strawberries and repeat the layers for a simple and delicious icebox cake!
The warm weather is here and I love making no-bake desserts. Strawberry Cream Cheese Icebox Cake is the perfect recipe for quick, easy and delicious! It's put together in a matter of minutes, there's no baking necessary and it can be made ahead of time too. It starts with graham crackers that are drizzled with chocolate syrup then fresh whipped cream, cream cheese and powdered sugar are mixed together and smothered onto the graham crackers. I added some sweet strawberries and repeated the layers for the perfect icebox cake. You have to let this sit for at least two hours, however the longer you do, the softer the graham crackers get. We tried ours after two hours and I liked that the crackers were still a little crunchy, however the kids liked it when they were softer. Either way, it's delicious!
Ingredients are as follows:
2 C heavy whipping cream
2 (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 C powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
10 full size graham crackers
1 1/2 pounds strawberries, stems cut off and diced
The graham crackers, strawberries and chocolate syrup are all what I used, however if you want more you can go ahead and add more. This makes an 8 x 8 inch pan.
Whip the heavy whipping cream until soft peaks form; set aside.
Cream together the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla.
Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.
Place a layer of graham crackers into the bottom of the pan and drizzle with chocolate syrup.
Evenly spread on 1/3 of the cream cheese & whipped cream mixture.
Add a layer of diced strawberries.
Repeat the layers two more times and add another drizzle of chocolate syrup to top it off. Cover with saran wrap and place it in the fridge for at least two hours.
Slice, serve and enjoy!
