How do you make an Icebox Cake?
- Using an 8-inch x 8-inch baking pan, take graham crackers and split in half. Line 9 of the halves along the bottom of the pan.
- In a large bowl combine white chocolate pudding mix with 1-1/2 cups of whole milk and mix until firm. Place in the refrigerator for 2 minutes then mix in the cool whip. Layer half of the pudding mixture over the graham crackers.
- Layer 9 more graham crackers on top of the pudding, and top them with the remaining pudding mixture.
- Top that pudding layer with the last 9 graham crackers. In a microwave safe bowl add the chocolate chips and butter. Microwave for 1-1/2 minutes. Stir until combined and melted. Add the milk and powdered sugar and mix until combined. Pour over top layer of graham crackers and put in the freezer for 3 hours.
- 10 minutes before serving remove from the refrigerator and then slice and top with ice cream, white chocolate sauce, and white chocolate chips.
How long will an Icebox Cake keep?
- Icebox cakes don’t last as long as traditional cake or ice cream cakes. After you cut into them they can last up to three days.
- They are best eaten within one to two days of making them simply because the graham crackers will get too mushy after that.
You can cut this Eclair Icebox Cake into large pieces or more brownie size pieces, but no matter how you slice it you will always get a bite of all the layers this cake is comprised of. As you slide your fork through the dark chocolate top layer all the way through the graham crackers and pudding you will capture every bit of sweet goodness this Eclair Icebox Cake has to offer.
