Hide Images

  • 1

    Heat 1 cup heavy cream with 1/4 cup sugar in a small pot. Once cream is hot (steaming) remove from heat. Add chocolate and chili powder to a mixing bowl and add the hot cream. Let sit until chocolate is melted and whisk everything together.

  • 2

    Add the rest of the cream to bowl and stir together. Cool chocolate mixture down in refrigerator until cold. Then whisk or use a hand mixer to whip the cream and chocolate until it holds stiff peaks.

  • 3

    Working in a baking dish or on a platter, add a small spoonful of the chocolate whipped cream to 4 crackers and lay them down on the platter. The cream will help the crackers stay in place.

  • 4

    Add a layer of chocolate cream to the bottom layer of graham crackers, then add another layer of crackers. Continue layering until cake is 4 layers high. Make sure to keep about 2 cups of chocolate cream to top the cake with later.

  • 5

    When last layer of graham crackers is on top, cover cake with plastic wrap and store in refrigerator for at least 4 hours (overnight is best). Don’t frost the top of the cake before you store it.

  • 6

    When the cake comes out of the refrigerator, frost with the leftover cream. To bring the whipped cream back to life, you can add a little cream to it and whip it again with a mixer until it's light and fluffy. If you want to make it look nice, pipe frosting onto the cake.

  • 7

    When the cake is frosted, stir together 1 tablespoon sugar with 1 teaspoon chili powder and dust the cake with the sugar mixture. Then shave some chocolate on top and serve chilled!

More About This Recipe

  • Here’s the problem with summer: It’s hot and an oven only makes it hotter. But if you’re like me, you still want cake. It’s a serious summer dilemma.

    This cake is like a breath of fresh air during the summer. It has just a few ingredients and you don’t have to turn on the oven!

    The key ingredient to this cake is a simple chocolate whipped cream with just enough chili to give it a little kick.

    Heat about a cup of cream with 1/4 cup of sugar until it’s hot and steaming. Then pour that over the chocolate and chili and let it sit until the chocolate is melted. You should be able to stir it all together into a smooth, rich melted chocolate.

    Add the rest of the cream to this and chill it down in the fridge until it’s cool. Then use a whisk or hand mixer to beat the chocolate cream until it holds stiff peaks.

    This stuff tastes so good!

    When your whipped cream is ready, spread a small amount of it on four graham crackers and lay those down on a platter. The cream will help the bottom layer of the cake stay in place.

    Then start adding layers of cream and graham crackers until you have a cake four layers high. Be sure to save some cream for later so you can top the cake!

    When you add your last top layer of graham crackers, wrap the cake with plastic wrap and store it in the fridge for at least four hours. This is a really important step because it will soften up the graham crackers a bit.

    When they come out of the fridge, you should be able to bend the crackers a bit.

    You’ll want to save 1-2 cups of chocolate cream to top the cake with after it comes out of the fridge. If the cream is too hard, you can bring it back to life by whisking it with an extra few tablespoons of cream until it’s light and fluffy.

    You can just spread the frosting on, but I like to pipe it on.

    To top off the cake, just stir together some sugar and chili powder.

    Dust that mixture over the cake and grate some chocolate shavings on top.

    This is one of my new favorite summer desserts. It’s totally delicious and tastes really unique. I can’t wait to make it again!

Chocolate Icebox Cake

9 Feb, 2017 Chocolate Icebox Cake Joanne Rappos desserts cakes

The first time I had this cake was while having dinner at my husbands grandparents place. When granny brought it out I saw my husbands (boyfriend at the time) eyes light up in a way that I had never before seen. She knew it too. With her coy smile and flashy eyes she remarked about not forgetting that it was his favourite. In fact it was and is a favourite amongst all the grandchildren, present company included!

My husband has very fond memories of spending weekends at his granny&rsquos with his other cousins in the pool or enjoying quiet afternoons there colouring and doing word puzzles and searches in granny&rsquos famous puzzle books. She would often make this and serve it out as a special treat for the little guys. They called it the magical dessert in the big glass bowl. Always trying to figure out what it was. Was it ice cream? Was it cake? Was it ice cream cake? Oh to be 8 again.

The mystery ended when we were given the recipe a couple years later. We always intended to make it but it kind of got lost in a card box. I recently found it when I was organising and purging and had to make it! Well I was so glad I found it because it turned out fantastic and was literally the best thing ever to watch my husband throughly enjoy it with a big old grin and eyes beaming knowing behind them were memories of a happy curious 8 year old enjoying a sweet treat.

Let&rsquos break this recipe down now. It&rsquos basically a mousse layered cake. Simple but so so good. If you are a mousse lover like I am you will fall in love with this. It&rsquos similar to a tiramisu but not as heavy. This is much more airy. It&rsquos no bake and low fuss as far as cakes go. A few things I did differently from the original recipe was I reduced the sugar by 1/4 cup because the ladyfingers had a dusting of sugar on them and it turned out perfect. Just enough sweetness. I decided to use milk as the base for soaking the lady fingers because I thought that straight coffee and liqueur would take away from the chocolate mousse which really is the star of the show. The coffee and liqueur really just complement it. Feel free to add more if you like the flavour to be more intense though.

It was literally the best thing ever to watch my husband throughly enjoy it with a big old grin

The raw egg dilemma&hellip ok yes you will be using a raw egg just like you would in many mousse recipes and tiramisu recipes. The key is to be sure to use fresh eggs and if you can try to use organic or free range and even pasteurised. I read that you can pasteurise your own eggs by placing them in water that is 60•C or 140•F for 4 minutes. This is hot enough to kill bacteria but not hot enough to cook the egg. I haven’t tried it but let me know if you have or if you know of any other tips for using raw eggs in recipes. Would love to hear of any suggestions.


All in all this recipe is a total win!! I have had several requests for this and my husband can&rsquot wait to take it to work! Simple, chocolatey, mouse heaven in a dish. There is no wonder why this long love affair started. And we have granny to thank for it!!

* I made this in a round 2.3Litre/ 2.5qt Corning ware dish but can use a glass bowl or a flatter dish — make sure to double or half recipe according to the size of your dish

Ingredients

  • 24 lady fingers
  • 1 can of nestle cream (approx 300 grams) or 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 lb. butter or 2 sticks
  • 2 tsp of coffee - I used instant granules but you can use brewed as well
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tbsp Frangelico (hazelnut liqueur)- optional or you can use brandy instead
  • 1 egg separated
  • 4 tbsp of cocoa powder plus a little extra for dusting after
  • 1/2 cup of milk (I used almond milk)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup roasted hazelnuts- optional

Directions

In a large mixing bowl cream butter and sugar for 3-5 minutes until light fluffy and almost double the size

Beat in the yolk and mix well until fully incorporated

In a small bowl mix and dissolve 1 tsp of coffee (if using instant) with 1 tsp Frangelico and mix into the large bowl also adding the vanilla and cocoa powder- otherwise just add the brewed coffee and liqueur as is

In a separate bowl beat the egg white until frothy and also doubled in size

Gently fold in the egg white with the chocolate mixture until fully combined and set a side for a few minute

In a separate bowl mix the milk remaining coffee and Frangelico and use as your dipping bowl to soak the lady fingers in prior to placing them in a serving dish

To layer start with lady fingers at the bottom of bowl/dish then pour out and spread 1/3 of the chocolate mousse. Repeat two more times with a total of three layer and ending with the chocolate mousse on the top

Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes remove and top with chopped roasted hazelnuts and then keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

This recipe looks really good and a bit similar to others I have tried. I would rather use butter and real whipping cream instead of margarine and cool whip - I am guessing I can do so as long as I put stabilizer in the whipping cream? This makes a great dessert to bring to a party or potluck, it's always a big hit!

Do you mix the chocolate and vanilla pudding mixes together with the milk or do you mix them separately and layer separately.

Icing sugar is 10X confectionary sugar

Icing sugar and confectioner's sugar are the same thing.

Photos please! We eat with our eyes first.

totally agree - I would lilke to see the items first

Recipe Summary

  • 1 3/4 cups heavy cream, chilled
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon mint extract
  • 1 package (9 ounces) chocolate wafers
  • 1 cup miniature chocolate chips

Make the mint cream: With an electric mixer, beat heavy cream, sugar, and mint extract until stiff peaks form.

Line a serving platter with two sheets of wax paper side by side. Assemble the cake: Spread each wafer with about 1/2 tablespoon mint cream, forming stacks. Lay stacks horizontally along seam of paper, pressing gently to form a log. With small spatula or knife, cover log with remaining mint cream. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or up to 2 days.

To serve, gently remove wax paper from underneath cake (holding cake in place with a metal spatula, if necessary), and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Slice cake diagonally with a serrated knife.


Recipe Summary

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 14 ounces semisweet chocolate (do not use chips)
  • 2 containers (15 ounces each) part-skim ricotta cheese, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 package (9 ounces) chocolate wafers (about 44 cookies)

Prepare pan: Remove sides from a 9-inch round springform pan (see note, below). Place a sheet of waxed paper over bottom, leaving an overhang lock sides onto bottom, firmly securing paper. Spray inside of pan with cooking spray line sides with a strip of waxed paper 28 inches long and 4 inches wide.

Make chocolate-ricotta mixture: Break 12 ounces of chocolate into pieces. Place in a heatproof medium bowl set over, not in, a pan of simmering water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until chocolate has melted, 8 to 10 minutes.

In a food processor, blend ricotta until very smooth, about 1 minute, scraping down sides of bowl. Add warm chocolate blend until smooth. In a large bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form. With a rubber spatula, gently fold in chocolate-ricotta mixture.

Assemble cake: Arrange half the cookies in an overlapping pattern to cover bottom of pan. Spoon half the chocolate-ricotta mixture on top of cookies smooth top. Cover with remaining cookies top with remaining chocolate-ricotta mixture, and smooth top. Cover with plastic wrap refrigerate at least 6 hours and up to 2 days.

Before serving, release sides of pan and remove waxed paper from sides. Using bottom piece of waxed paper, pull cake onto a platter with a metal spatula, lift cake and remove waxed paper. Using a vegetable peeler, shave remaining 2 ounces chocolate over top of cake. With a knife dipped in hot water, cut cake into 10 slices (wipe off knife, and dip in hot water after each slice).


Icebox Cakes

I took a walk down Memory Lane when I saw Icebox Cakes: Recipes for the Coolest Cakes in Town come across my desk. I have a vague memory of icebox cakes from early childhood but my recollection is rather beige, i.e., rows of vanilla wafers between layers of vanilla pudding. Hardly a resemblance to what I’ve seen in this book.

It is widely held that icebox cakes evolved from Marie-Antoine Carême’s French charlotte, a combination of ladyfingers and custard dating from the early 1800’s. More than a century later, the National Biscuit Company (AKA Nabisco) introduced chocolate wafers ⎯ which were packaged with an icebox cake recipe. It was an easy, quick dessert: just buy wafers and whip up a lot of cream. Even more attractive was the homemaker didn’t have to light the oven (back when few homes were air-conditioned).

Jean Sagendorph and Jessie Sheehan’s creative and contemporary recipes are totally 21st century. The cakes are made in loaf pans, springforms, 8 x 8 or 9 x 13 pans. And though they specify a container, I believe since there is no baking after assembly, you can decide which container to use (assuming it’s about the same volume as what was specified). They offer the latitude to make your own cookies/wafers or save time by purchasing. If you choose “store bought,” they make suggestions such as Nabisco’s, Trader Joe’s Meyer Lemon Cookie Thins, and Anna’s Thins, etc.

If you want to bake your own wafers, their traditional recipes include ladyfingers, vanilla wafers and homemade chocolate wafers. Then they kick it up a notch, adding Mexican Chocolate Spice, Pistachio, Red Velvet and Black Pepper.

Some fillings are tinted with the juice of a fruit or liqueur. Others add nuts, spices or even peanut butter, yielding icebox cakes like Black-Pepper Rum, Key-Lime Pie and Chai-Ginger. These are not your grandmother’s icebox cakes.

Match the heat of a summer night with this Mexican Chocolate Spice icebox cake. Don’t be put off — or intimidated — by the length of this recipe. Experienced bakers may not need the full detail the authors have given, but it’s certainly helpful for novices.

Yield: 12 to 15 servings

This cake is for those who like a little heat with their chocolate. The combination of cinnamon, black pepper, chili powder, and just a touch of cayenne give this cake an unexpected kick. (You’ll have extra wafers left over after assembling your cake – lucky you! Store them in a resealable plastic bag in the freezer and enjoy them for up to 1 month).
One 9-by-5-by-3-in/23-by-12-by-7.5-cm loaf pan
One 10-in/25-cm oval or rectangular serving platter

Ingredients:
Makes about 60 wafers
1 1/4 cups/170 g all-purpose flour
3/4 cup/75 g Dutch-process cocoa powder
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups/250 g granulated sugar
3/4 cup/170 g unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons whole milk
1 tablespoon light corn syrup

Makes about 6 cups/720 grams
3 cups/720 ml heavy cream
1/3 cup/45 g confectioners’ sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Ground cinnamon and granulated sugar, whisked together until well blended, for decorating

Method:
Make the wafers
1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, spices, and salt.

2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the granulated sugar, butter, and vanilla on a medium-low speed until slightly fluffy, about 2 minutes. Be careful not to overbeat. Scrape the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula.

3. In a small bowl, whisk the milk and corn syrup to combine. Add the milk mixture to the butter-sugar mixture with the mixer on medium-low speed beat until just combined. Scrape the sides of the bowl with the rubber spatula.

4. Add the flour mixture all at once to the mixer bowl. With the mixer on low speed, beat until the dough just begins to pull away from the bottom of the bowl to fully incorporate all the ingredients.

5. Divide the dough in half and place each half on a sheet of plastic wrap. Loosely wrap the dough and form each half into a log about 2 in/5 cm wide. Roll the logs along the counter, still wrapped in plastic wrap, in order to shape into perfect cylinders. Tighten the plastic wrap around the logs and freeze them for at least 2 hours, or overnight. If you have trouble forming the soft dough into logs, form the dough into a disk (or loose log shape), wrap it in plastic wrap, and place in the freezer for about 20 minutes, just until it is cold enough to shape into the necessary log. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

6. Once frozen, unwrap one of the logs and use a sharp paring or chef’s knife to cut it into thin slices and 1/8 in/3 mm thick rotate the log as you slice, or the side sitting on the cutting surface will flatten. Arrange the slices about 1 in/2.5 cm apart on one of the prepared baking sheets and place in the freezer for at least 10 minutes. Repeat with the second log and prepared baking sheet. If you need more room to fit all your dough slices, simply arrange them on additional sheets of parchment paper, lay the dough-covered papers on top of the other on the second baking sheet in the freezer, and switch them out as you bake off each batch. (You can also wrap the baking sheets in plastic wrap and freeze the rounds for up to 1 week.)

7. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350°F/180°C.

8. Place one baking sheet of the frozen dough rounds in the oven and bake until they appear dry, 10 to 12 minutes, rotating the sheet halfway through the baking time. Using a solid metal or plastic spatula, immediately press down lightly on each cookie to flatten it. Let the wafers cool on the baking sheet for 2 to 3 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. The wafers should be very crispy when cooled. If they are not, place them back in the 350°F/180°C oven for 1 to 2 minutes. Repeat to bake the additional sheets of frozen dough rounds.

9. Store the wafers in an airtight container as soon as they have cooled. They will remain crispy at room temperature, tightly sealed, for about 24 hours. Freezing the baked wafers in a resealable plastic bag also works well, for up to 1 month. There is no need to defrost the wafers before assembling your cake.

Make the Whipped Cream
1. Refrigerate the bowl of a stand mixer and the whisk attachment (or medium metal bowl and beaters from a hand mixer) until quite cold, about 15 minutes.

2. Once chilled, remove the bowl and whisk from the refrigerator, add the cream, and whip it on medium speed until just thickened.

3. Add the confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and cayenne and, on medium-high speed, whip the cream until it hold stiff peaks that stand upright when the whisk is raised (the stiffer the cream, the more support it will provide the wafers in your cake). Use it immediately.

Assemble the Cake
1. Line the loaf pan with plastic wrap that hangs slightly over the pan sides. Using a small offset spatula or the back of a spoon, spread a generous layer of the whipped cream on the bottom of the lined pan.

2. Cover as much of the whipped cream as possible with a layer of the wafers, filling in any gaps with broken wafers. The pieces should touch. The goal is a solid layer of wafers.

3. Continue layering whipped cream and wafers until you run out or reach the top of the pan, ending with whipped cream. Gently cove the cake with plastic wrap. Refrigerate 24 hours.

4. Peel the plastic wrap from the cake, place the serving platter over the cake, and invert the cake onto the platter. Carefully remove the pan and plastic-wrap lining and dust the cinnamon sugar on top of the cake. Using a knife, cut it into slices and serve.

Hi Priscilla, the mixture of gluten-free flours used right here is important for best texture. Almond flour provides a pleasant crumb texture and potato starch makes it gentle and fluffy. Hi Vicki, We haven’t tried that, but almond flour provides a nice crumb texture, so we aren’t positive it would work. Has anybody tried a glaze that doesn’t use common white powdered sugar?
