Sometimes I find a dessert idea and wonder why I never ran across it before…and this Strawberry Icebox Cake Recipe is definitely one of those desserts. I must be living under a rock because this is one of the easiest and tastiest recipes I’ve ever made. It tastes incredibly fresh and the best thing is that it lasts in the refrigerator for several days…that is if you can manage not to eat it all at once!

It’s assembled in layers and they go together so quickly. Once you get your strawberries cleaned and sliced it takes literally a few minutes. Here’s what to do!

When you are making the layers, it doesn’t really matter what your graham crackers look like. They can be broken and it won’t taste a bit different! Sometimes I get a little heavy handed with the Cool Whip and can only get two layers. When I was making this to take these pictures, I was a little more careful and got three layers. Either way, it tastes the same. I like to save a few strawberries and use them for garnish. Fresh mint looks beautiful as well.

If you don’t like the idea of using Cool Whip, you could use real whipping cream. I don’t think it would last as long in the refrigerator. If you were making and eating the same day, then I think it would be delish.

This strawberry icebox cake could easily be made in a 9 x 13 pan if you were feeding a crowd. Just get more strawberries and Cool Whip. You will have plenty of graham crackers if you have a full box.
