I decided (again) to revisit the icebox cake. I wanted something with chocolate and peanut butter, though. I couldn’t really find anything that struck my fancy…And most had peanut butter whipped cream. I wanted either chocolate sauce or cocoa whipped cream. And a layer of peanut butter. So, I came up with my own:
Chocolate Peanut Butter Icebox Cake.
The thing I love about icebox cakes is that they sit overnight so the flavors meld, and crisp cookies or graham crackers become softened, kind of like cake. And the longer they sit, the better they get. I don’t make them nearly as often as I’d like, but seeing as I can plow through a 9X13-inch Chocolate Eclair Cake on my own, it’s probably better that I don’t make them that frequently. Still, they’re so delicious and easy to make…If you don’t mind waiting the 12 hours or so until they’re ready.
This was very very good. Creamy and peanut-buttery. I think to make it even more decadent I might add some hot fudge sauce and make regular whipped cream. But that’s something to work on for another time.
I am glad I didn’t make a larger batch of this.
The bambino tried it, and was apparently less than impressed…He didn’t ask for his own, which he usually does if he like something. Jay hasn’t tried it yet, so I don’t know what he thinks about it. No matter…That just means there’s more for me!
