Yields 12 servings

ice box cake


  • A large baking dish (9 x 13-inch is ideal)
  • 2 (8 ounce) tubs whipped topping
  • 1 (14.4 ounce) box honey or chocolate graham crackers
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup sliced strawberries to garnish (optional)
  • Fresh mint as garnish (optional)


  1. In the baking dish, cover the bottom with a thin layer of whipped topping. Begin placing the graham crackers over the bottom of the dish until it's covered. Begin layering the graham crackers and whipped topping until you have 3 layers.
  2. Frost the entire outside of the cake with additional whipped topping and cover with plastic wrap. Chill in the refrigerator for several hours to allow the graham crackers to soften.
  3. Before serving, melt the dark chocolate chips in the microwave stirring occasionally to ensure they are completely melted. With a spoon, drizzle the chocolate over the top of the cake. Garnish with strawberries and mint leaves. Slice and serve.
