Last summer I fell in love with the icebox cake. I can’t remember how many different versions we made over the summer, but we loved them all, the Lemon Blueberry Icebox Cake, included. It’s the perfect dessert for summer because it’s cool, refreshing, and requires no baking.

This fall I decided that it’s also the perfect dessert for the holidays. It’s cool, refreshing, and requires no baking. It’s also a snap to pull together, meaning it gives you time for other pursuits. You can assemble it one night before bed and it will be ready the next day when you’re heading to a church potluck. Or layer all the goodies together in the morning before work or school and it will be ready to take to that party in the evening. Easy peasy. It’s like the crockpot –only not hot.

My new favorite icebox cake is the Salted Caramel Mocha. Yeah, baby. The SCM Frapp at Starbucks is probably one of the things I most look forward to at the holiday time. I’ve taken those flavors and infused them in an icebox cake.

Can you say Super Yum?

Now, I’ll confess. I didn’t spend a lot of time creating a handmade salted caramel topping. I’ve seen recipes for that crazy and that kinda goes against what I said about super easy and crockpot ease and all that kind of thing. Instead, to mimic the flavor of the salted caramel, I simply leaned on my favorite Heath Toffee Bits.

Me and Heath, we go way back. My kids know that if a Heath bar crosses their path, part of it is mine.

You will, however, want to make a batch of Mocha Chocolate Syrup for this cake. It won’t be the same without it. So, make that a couple hours in advance so it can cool a bit before assembling the cake.

This cake is a huge hit at our house, so I’m guessing it will be the same at yours. Let me know how you like it or if you make any tweaks to the filling.

    I did it! I made the sauce last night, used some in coffee and that was YUM! Put the dessert together before work so it was ready for a work meeting tonight. The only edit I made was I used Gluten Free Grahams so that the one celiac in the group could also enjoy! (All other ingrediants were already GF).. I ate the very last 2 bites of the pan… EVERYONE loved it.. They knew it was GF and devoured it. My Friend thanked me for it and then said she felt ill.. I freaked out until she said she was not ILL from gluten.. but sick to her stomach because she ate WAY too much!

    Already linked this to the work FB page b/c everyone asked for the recipe!

  5. So glad you commented on this recipe today!!!! How did I miss seeing this earlier?? Sounds YUM!

    • It is!

      Turns out there aren’t enough graham crackers, but I’ve got strawberries, chocolate wafers, chocolate syrup and whipped cream. Also making them in individual mini sizes. 🙂

  6. Would this come out too heavy if I used regular cream cheese? I have some I really need to use up and this sounds fabulous. I’m thinking I’ll make a smaller version, though, as there are only two of us and we have self-control issues when sweets are involved.
