Old Fashioned No Bake Strawberry Icebox Cake Recipe

This old fashioned no bake strawberry icebox cake recipe is a delicious layers of graham crackers, cool whip and sweet slices of strawberries. As the ingredients sit in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight, these elements slowly merge into a moist, creamy cake texture that is reminiscent of an eclair or a much fancier meringue dacquoise.

I would like to add that you can slowly drizzle simple ganache sauce over the strawberry icebox cake.

Instructions on how to make chocolate ganache

Heat ¼ cup heavy whipping cream in a small, heavy saucepan over medium-low heat. Once it bubbles, turn off the heat. Add chocolate and let stand for 3 minutes. Whisk mixture until it’s thick and glossy. Let it cool to lukewarm and drizzle ganache over dessert. Use a plastic baggie with tiny bit of tip cut off to drizzle the ganache upon the icebox cake.
