This has got to be one of the easiest, tastiest, most scrumptious dessert to put together. Ever. There’s no wrong way to do it. You can make it big, you can make it small. Make it to fit your needs. Or cravings.

You can totally cheat making this. Use store bought cookies and cool whip.  Buy the Hot fudge sauce. No one will care when they take that first bite. or the last bite. And they will eat every bite. You can use any kind of cookie. It doesn’t have to be chocolate chip. (did I really just say that?)

You can switch out the Hot Fudge sauce for Chocolate syrup or caramel sauce. Or get really fancy and use chocolate and caramel. Or what about butterscotch? The key to this Chocolate Chip Cookie Icebox Cake is the waiting. You have to wait at least 12 hours (more is better) to eat it. For the cookies to soften to a cakelike state.

Trust me, the wait is worth it. My youngest and I put this together completely on a whim. We had all the ingredients. I had a baking spree just the day before. She whipped the cream perfectly. Then she stacked the cookies, and the whipped cream, and the cookies and the whipped cream…

Our proportions were a little off, almost running out of whipped cream, although if we hadn’t been eating spoonfuls as we stacked, we would have had plenty.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Icebox Cake

Chocolate Chip Cookie Icebox Cake

Ingredients

  • 20-24 Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup Hot Fudge Sauce

Instructions

  1. Whip Cream with powdered sugar until peaks just begin to form, making whipped cream.
  2. On a serving plate, place 5-6 Chocolate chip cookies to form a circle. Place about 1 cup of whipped cream on top of cookies, carefully spreading to about 1 inch from outer edge.
  3. Second layer, staggering the cookies, place again, another 5-6 cookies forming a circle, on top of whip cream and first layer. Gently press down to secure layer. Place 3/4 cup whipped cream on top of this layer.
  4. Start narrowing your cake, using only 4 cookies, and 1/2 cup whipped cream, then 3 cookies and 1/3 cup whipping cream until you have the desired height for your cake with one cookie on top.
  5. Reserve about 1/4 cup whipped cream for garnishing just before serving.
  6. Cover cake loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 12 hours before serving.
  7. When ready to serve, garnish with remaining whipped cream and warmed Hot Fudge sauce.

Notes

All measurements in assembling are approximate. Use as many cookies as needed to get the cake as large as you would like it. I used these Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies but any chocolate chip cookie will work (homemade or store bought)

  1. I might need to make two of these because I don’t plan on sharing mine!

  2. Get out!! Did you really just stack up some cookies and cool whip and top with loads of hot fudge?!?! Why did I never think of that!? Pretty genius. And easy. Love easy.

  3. I’ve been wanting to try this forever!! I wish I could just reach through the screen and take a big ol’ slice!! Pinned :)

  4. I think the picture says it all! What a scrumptious looking dessert!

  5. Oh Joan! By now you should know how much I love chocolate chip cookies, so you should already know how I’m dying over this cake! Please make this for me, mmkay :D

  6. shudddduuuuup with that oooozing chocolate sauce and these cookies in icebox cake form!!!! OBSESSED

  7. I make a version of this where you soak the chocolate chip cookies in orange juice and sherry before layering up with the cream, cover it all in whipped cream when you’re done and grate chocolate all over the top. It makes a very elegant gateau-like dessert that takes minutes to put together. I learnt to make it in a restaurant I worked at where it was on the menu. I agree that the waiting time is key – it gets better for being left longer, it’s just so delicious it’s hard to wait! :)

  8. Saved and pinned! That is such a great idea. A perfect dessert to make with the little people too!
