How to Make Icebox Cake - A Childhood Favorite
- 1Whip the cream and stir in vanilla and sugar.
Line a loaf pan with foil or plastic wrap, enough to fold over and seal the contents while stored in the freezer overnight.
- 2Place the first cooky on a flat surface covered with foil or plastic wrap (enough as described above), and top it with a spoonful of the cream. *Place another cooky on top of that, tapping gently to flatten the cream, and place another spoonful of cream on that cooky, continue from * until the length is enough to fit the loaf pan.
- 3Begin a second row of cookies and cream and place this in line with the first row, making a double row, which should eventually fill the loaf pan.
Wrap the foil or plastic wrap to seal all. Place in the freezer.
- 4On the day you plan to serve it,remove from loaf pan and place on a pretty plate,and decorate the top with cut cherries and green leaves made of mint jelly candies, and have prepared a good quality hot fudge sauce to pour over each serving.
