Strawberry Ice Box Cake

If you’re a fan of strawberries and chocolate, try this easy and delicious Strawberry Ice Box Cake that features layers of chocolate wafers, whipping cream and fresh strawberry puree! What a refreshing creamy dessert perfect for any summer gathering.

Ingredients for Strawberry Pie

Strawberry Ice Box Cake

Slightly adapted from


Chocolate Wafer Cookies (such as Nabisco Chocolate Wafer Cookies)
1 pound Strawberries – hulled
1/2 cup Sugar
1 envelope plain gelatin (from a 1 oz. box)
1 TSP Vanilla Extract
1 and 1/4 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
Easy Strawberry Ice Box Cake
Directions: Place parchment paper on the bottom of 8×4 loaf pan, making sure you have an overhang of paper on the sides. Place strawberries, sugar, and vanilla extract in a food processor or high powered blender and pulse until smooth. Using a small saucepan on the stove, heat 1/4 cup of the strawberry mixture on low. Add gelatin and let sit for three minutes, stirring occasionally until dissolved and mixture thickens. Transfer gelatin mixture back to food processor and pulse to combine. Beat the whipping cream and yogurt with an electric mixer until peaks form and then fold into the strawberry mixture.

Place cookies along the sides and bottom of pan. You should be able to fit three on each longer side, three on the bottom, and one on each shorter side. Pour all the mixture into the pan. Fill in the middle with three rows of cookies standing up. Cover and freeze for about 8 hours or longer up to 2 days. When ready to serve, turn cake upside down on a plate or cutting board and take out of pan. Remove paper and slice crosswise. Serves 10-12

Tip: If cake is hard to get out of pan, just let it melt for a few minutes. In my opinion, it’s actually better slightly melty 🙂

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?
