Reese's peanut butter icebox cake

Serves 8

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces prepared whipped cream
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 9-12 honey graham crackers
  • Reese's peanut butter cups for garnish (optional)

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl whisk together the whipped cream, yogurt, peanut butter, milk and powdered sugar until smooth and creamy.
  2. Line the bottom of an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan with graham crackers. Break the crackers to make sure all of the holes are filled.
  3. Spread 1/4 of the whipped cream mixture on top of the graham crackers.
  4. Top the whipped cream mixture with another layer of graham crackers. Break the crackers to make sure all of the holes are filled.
  5. Repeat until there are four layers each of graham cracker and whipped cream, ending with the whipped cream mixture.
  6. Cover with plastic wrap and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight.
  7. To make the ganache, heat the chocolate chips and heavy cream over a double boiler, stirring constantly, until completely melted and smooth.
  8. To remove the cake from the pan, run a sharp knife under hot water and run along the edges of the cake. Place a plate on top of the pan and slowly invert, allowing the cake to fall slowly out of the pan and onto the plate.
  9. Let the cake sit in the freezer for 5 minutes before pouring hot ganache on top.
  10. Spread the prepared ganache on top of the cake and let it run down the sides. Garnish with peanut butter cups if using.
  11. Serve cold.
