Icebox Cake


My sister called from Colorado just to say, "They are so over winter," at their house! Shortly after I received this pix from a friend and had a good laugh. Is everyone ready to hang their snowman and hope for Spring?

Before that happens, my girls have requested, "some old-fashioned recipes," desserts their grandmas used to make. This is one that is fairly inexpensive, can be made today and enjoyed all weekend. I live a low-carb lifestyle and like to use toasted walnuts or pecans in place of graham crackers with sugar-free pudding. Try mixing it up, creating your own with your favorite pudding flavors and share!



Icebox Cake

Ingredients:

  • 1 box (14.4 oz.) graham crackers
  • 2 boxes (3 oz. each) butterscotch cook-and-serve pudding
  • 2 boxes (3 oz. each) vanilla cook-and-serve pudding
  • 1 box (3.4 oz.) chocolate cook-and-serve pudding
  • 10 cups of milk

Directions:

Coat a 13x9x2" pan with nonstick cooking spray. Line the bottom with a single layer of graham crackers. Cut graham crackers to fit the pan if needed. Cook butterscotch pudding as directed on the package, about 10 minutes. Pour over layer of graham crackers. Place another layer of graham crackers over the butterscotch pudding. Cook vanilla pudding, again following the package directions, and pour over graham crackers. Place a final layer of crackers over the vanilla pudding. Cook chocolate pudding according to package directions, and pour evenly over the graham crackers. Finely crush the remaining graham crackers, and sprinkle them over the vanilla pudding layer. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. Cut into 16 squares. You may want to top with a swirl of whipped cream.

This is yummy year round.  I hope to post a fun variation for you really soon!  Thanks for flying by...

  3. This looks yummy, maybe I'll have to make it for the next Astoria Ward potluck during conference sessions(that is if I haven't had this baby yet since she is due April 6th). I am still waiting for that yummy artichoke salad you brought to a BBQ at the Doxey/Brenchley's last summer.
