More About This Recipe

  • 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. 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. Even as it starts to melt, it still tastes PB-caramel-chocolate-tastic.
