  • 2 boxes graham crackers
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 8 ounce package cream cheese
  • 5 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 pint strawberries , sliced
  • 1/2 pint strawberries , cut in half (for top of cake)
  • 1/4 cup melting chocolate wafers , optional


  • Line a 9×9″ pan with the graham crackers and set aside.
  • Pour the heavy cream into a large bowl and mix with an electric mixer on medium-speed until a stiff peak forms, about 4 to 5 minutes. Then add the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Mix just until smooth.
  • Spread 1/3 of the mixture onto the graham crackers. Then layer 1/3 of the sliced strawberries on top. Repeat with 3 layers. Save the strawberries you’re putting on top, until ready to serve.
  • Place cake in the refrigerator for at least one hour, to allow the graham crackers to soften.
  • Add the top layer of strawberries right before serving. Slice and drizzle chocolate on top if desired.



  • Slice the strawberries that extra thin you're layering into the icebox cake so that there aren't huge chunks in the middle.
  • Let chill in refrigerator at least one hour prior to serving.
  • I place my strawberry icebox cake in the freezer 30 minutes before serving so that it firms up.
  • Add the top layer of strawberries right before serving.
  • Use a sharp knife to slice your icebox cake.
  • Feel free to drizzle the top with chocolate or add on more fresh berries!
