Creating this No Bake Strawberry Ice Box Cake is a breeze, and you only need a few basic ingredients. It comes together in no time and boasts an incredible flavor profile. Get ready to fall in love with this no-bake dessert, especially with that luscious chocolate ganache.
- 2 pounds of fresh strawberries, sliced
- 1 quart of heavy whipping cream, divided
- 1/3 cup of powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract (optional)
- 14.4 ounces of graham crackers (1 box)
- 1 cup of milk chocolate chips (or chocolate chunks)
- Start by washing and slicing your strawberries.
- Whip up 3 1/4 cups of the heavy cream using a hand mixer or a stand mixer until it holds stiff peaks.
- Add the powdered sugar, vanilla, and almond extract (if you’re using it) and mix until well combined.
- Begin by covering the bottom of your pan with graham cracker sheets.
- Lightly coat the top of the graham crackers with a thin layer of whipped cream, followed by a single layer of sliced strawberries. Repeat these layers two more times.
- Spread the remaining whipped cream over the top and give it a gentle swirl with a spoon. Add a few more strawberry slices.
- For the ganache, heat the remaining cream until it starts to bubble around the edges, then pour it over the chocolate. Let it sit for a few minutes, and then whisk until the mixture becomes thick and glossy.
- Drizzle this ganache over the layered dessert using a spoon, or you can transfer it to a squeeze bottle for more precision.
- Refrigerate for at least four hours, or until the graham crackers have completely softened.
- Garnish with extra berries to make it even more delightful.
