How to Make Caramel Chocolate Icebox Cake

Step 1

I like to make my Homemade Caramel Sauce for this recipe, so I make that first. If you’re too lazy or don’t have time, you can buy the King’s Cupboard Caramel Sauce. It’s good but it’s definitely not as good as making it from scratch!

Step 2

Line a 1 pound loaf pan with parchment paper.

Step 3

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, add the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix on low to avoid splattering, and gradually increase speed, until you’re at full speed and stiff peaks form.

Step 4

Spread a layer of whipped cream frosting into the prepared load pan. Drizzle a layer of caramel sauce. Add a layer of cookies. The amount of whipped cream and caramel is up to you, but the thicker you go here, the less layers you’ll have.

Repeat this process of layering whipped cream, caramel, and cookies until the pan is full. Make sure your top layer is whipped cream.

Step 5

Add crumble cookies and a drizzle of caramel sauce on top of the top layer. Place the pan in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Step 6

Remove cake from the pan and using a hot sharp knife, cut into slices and serve immediately. Store leftover icebox cake in the fridge for a couple days or in the freezer for up to 1 month (wrap in plastic wrap to keep fresh).

FAQ's

Do I need a stand mixer for this recipe?

No, you don't need a stand mixer, but you do need at least a hand mixer to make the whipped cream. So, feel free to use either one!

Can I use different Oreo flavor?

Yes! Feel free to swap for the original Newman's Own O's which are vanilla creme center. Or, you could even use the Vanilla Newman's Own O's (like golden oreos) or Peanut Butter! These would all be delicious with this recipe.

Do you store icebox cake in the fridge or the freezer?

Icebox cake can be stored in the fridge if you're going to eat it right away. It's best chilled right out of the fridge so it's not completely frozen. But, if you plan to store it for longer than a couple days, the storing it in the freezer is best. To freeze an icebox cake, store it in an airtight freezer safe container.

Why organic?

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
