The Store-Bought Cookies Ina Garten Uses For Simple Icebox Cake
Icebox cakes are made with layers of cookies and either whipping cream, sweetened condensed milk, or pudding that sets overnight turning into a creamy, flavorful dessert.
Ina Garten transforms this classic 1950s dessert into her Mocha Chocolate Icebox Cake with updates like a mocha whipped cream and Tate’s Chocolate Chip cookies.
Tate’s cookies are the perfect choice because they’re just crispy enough that they’ll soften overnight without disintegrating into a mushy mess.
To make a Mocha Chocolate Icebox Cake, you’ll need about three packages of Tate’s cookies and a mocha cream made of whipping cream, mascarpone, Kahlua, and cocoa powder.
According to Garten, “The whole thing takes five minutes to make, and you make it the day before,” making it the perfect delicious yet simple dessert for entertaining.
