No Bake Strawberry Ice Box Cake Recipe

This is seriously one of the easiest desserts that I have ever made. It has only a few ingredients and all you do is layer them, then throw it in the fridge- no baking required.

It’s a delicious and refreshing dessert loaded with fresh strawberries and chocolate. This dessert reminds me of strawberry shortcake. Plus the chocolate ganache on top adds the perfect finishing touch.

What could I use in place of graham crackers?

This recipe calls for graham crackers but you could easily replace them. Here is what we recommend:

  • Golden Grahams Cereal (crushed)
  • Vanilla Wafers
  • Biscoff Cookies
  • Vanilla Oreos
  • Teddy Grahams

How far in advance can I make this dessert?

This recipe explains that it is best when it has sat in the fridge for about four hours. You could eat it sooner, but the texture is best when the graham crackers have softened a little.

We recommend making this four hours in advance, or even the night before. If you make it more than 24 hours in advance, the graham crackers will get a little soggy and might not be as enjoyable.

How should I store this No Bake Strawberry Ice Box Cake?

This cake is best stored in the freezer. If you do plan to make it 48 hours in advance, we recommend freezing it for the first 24, then thawing it in the fridge 24 hours before serving it.

We don’t recommend making it more than 48 hours in advance. If you have any leftovers, cover it tightly with saran wrap or foil, to keep out moisture, as well as to keep it from drying out.

After a day or two it starts to get soggy. So eat those leftovers within a day or two.

It’s common for foods with whipped cream to take on other food flavors in the fridge, so for the best results, keep it covered tightly.
