5 ingredient fluffy, easy to make, and indulgent no-bake icebox cake recipe that celebrates all the good childhood tastes of summer.
And what better way to celebrate a Summer ice box cake recipe than with a S’mores themed one? This S’more Ice Box Cake will satisfy the kid in us all.
This S’mores Ice Box Cake was a hit with the adults and kids alike. It’s no wonder since it’s packed with marshmallows, layers of graham crackers, chocolate ganache, and marshmallow puff.
I took it to tea with friends and we feasted on it … the feedback was great. I love trying recipes and sharing with friends. It was a bit of a risk since this is my first ice box cake, but it speaks more to the kid in us all.
The photo shoot for this recipe was hilarious. Baby Lucy was everywhere and only wanted to get her tiny fingers into the marshmallows. Somehow she always knows exactly what she shouldn’t be eating and goes directly for it. I guess the pillowy marshmallow texture calls all our names.
I had a hard time grabbing any photos without trying to sway Lucy away with toys. Lucy will be 1 year old in a short month. Given my experience with this ice box cake I’m thinking she’d love a marshmallow cake for her birthday celebration.
