Chocolate Icebox Cake ~ Single Serve Dessert

>>  Sunday, May 3, 2015

We just finished our April Mega BM themed on Baking, and its time for the next edition! I have selected Kids Delight Creamy Food for the first week. The first two weeks edition is hosted by Mir, who is calling for Creamy Foods. 

It includes all puddings, custards, ice creams, and savory dishes like creamy soups, mac n cheese. I have been breaking my head to decide what to do. I have almost done most that I can make for my kids and it was a tough task.

For day one, I selected to make Chocolate Icebox Cake, that included everything that's my kids favorite. It has chocolate cookies, cream and set as an Icecream. The actual dish is made as a huge box with about 30 wafers. However as I was serving individual serving, I used three cookies and included grated chocolate and dark chocolate chips. 

I made the wafers from scratch and it was pretty easy assembling the whole dish.

Sending this to Mireille, who is hosting my Kid's Delight, themed on Creamy Foods

Chocolate Icebox Cake

All purpose flour - 1 1/2 cups
Cocoa powder - 3/4 cup
Granulated Sugar  - 1 cup 
Salt a pinch
Baking Soda a big pinch
Cold butter - 1/4 cup
Milk 1 tsp just to make it come together.

How to make the Wafers

In a mixing bowl, take the flour, cocoa, sugar, salt and soda. Mix well and add the butter, knead till it crumbles. Then knead well. The dough almost comes together, just sprinkle milk over this and knead till it holds shape.

Roll as a cylender and cling wrap. Refregerate for an hour.

Remove and slice very thin. Pre heat the oven at 200 C. Place the cookies on the greased tray with enough space.

Bake at 185 C for 10 mins. Remove and allow to cool.


After cooling for 10 - 15 mins, check if the cookies are crispy, else bake again for 2 mins. 

For the whipped cream

Fresh cream - 1 cup
Icing Sugar - 3 -4 tbsp (or increase as per taste)

Other toppings

Shaved Chocolates / Grated Chocolate
Dark Chocolate Chips 

To Assemble the Chocolate Icebox Cake:

I took three cookies for each single serve

In the serving bowl, place the first cookie, spread the cream over it, sprinkle grated chocolate, place the second cookie and repeat. On the third cookie, spread the cream, and top with dark chocolate chips.

Freeze till it sets.

When serving, cut through as 4 parts and serve right away

ice cream cakes were always my fave as a child. There is an ice cream parlor chain here called Carvel and every birthday I always got a cake from there. You are reminding me of my childhood with this post.
