Indulgence made simple with this no-bake chocolate graham cracker cake
Chocolate Graham Cracker Cake is a favorite of two sisters, my mom and Aunt Marge, made by my grandma when they were kids. It's one of those childhood desert memories that's never forgotten and designed to put a smile on your face and deliciousness in your belly.
To this day, the family tradition continues. In fact, when Marge comes to visit mom on her birthday, this is the cake she makes.
The no-bake chocolate icebox graham cracker cake recipe
1 1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup of whipping cream
16 graham crackers
(Note from Marge, "I use a pint of whip cream because I like lots. So, I add about 1/4 more sugar and an additional 1/4 cup cocoa and a little more vanilla).
Sift sugar and cocoa and add slowly to the whipping cream. Beat until it peaks. Stack the 16 crackers in two rows of eight, side by side, horizontally. Spatula the cream mixture over the crackers, one cracker at a time. It will look like a loaf when completed. Be generous with the mixture between crackers. Hold the stack firm. Spatula icing over the sides and the top as well. Chill overnight.
To serve, add dark chocolate shavings or Hershey's chocolate syrup for another layer of deliciousness. Or do what Marge and mom do, cut a slice right out of the fridge and eat it.
