PB Salted Caramel Icebox Cake

As prepared by Gimme Some Oven,

Growing up, I used to love making icebox cakes in the summer with my mom.


We would mix and match crusts and cookies, creams and yogurts, and have so much fun seeing what new creation we would enjoy for dessert!

The main thing she taught me is that icebox cakes are nearly impossible to mess up. If you have the ingredients for a crust, and then layer in some whipped cream for the filling, the sky’s the limit with anything else you want to throw in!

So I decided to throw in three favorites with this cake – some peanut butter squares, chocolate whipped cream, and some salted caramel. De-ca-DENT. And surprisingly easy.

Here’s the how-to!

 

Nature Valley Peanut Butter Soft-Baked Oatmeal Squares

Begin with these Nature Valley Peanut Butter Soft-Baked Oatmeal Squares for the cake “crust”.

 

Layer of peanut butter squares

In a bread pan or small baking dish, place a layer of peanut butter squares so that they are touching side-to-side.

 

Making chocolate whipped cream

Then make your chocolate whipped cream by gently stirring together a tub of whipped cream and a tablespoon of cocoa powder.

 

Spooning half the chocolate whipped cream on top

Spoon about half of the chocolate whipped cream on top of the peanut butter squares layer.

 

Drizzling caramel sauce on

Then drizzle about half a jar of caramel sauce on top of the whipped cream layer, and sprinkle with coarse sea salt.

 

Repeating with another layer of peanut butter squares and whipped cream

Repeat with another layer of peanut butter squares and whipped cream. Then freeze until frozen though, at least two hours. Remove from freezer and cut into squares to serve. Then drizzle with remaining caramel sauce, a little chocolate sauce, then sprinkle with sea salt.
