Icebox cakes are a summertime favorite! Not only are they quick and easy to prepare, but these delicious desserts don’t require the oven which is a huge bonus! If you’ve never made an icebox cake before, you are going to LOVE this! You simply layer up a cream filling and cookies of any type… the cookies soften creating an amazing cakey texture!
This Peanut Butter Banana Icebox Cake has chocolate wafers sandwiched between layers of peanut butter cream and bananas! You won’t believe how deliciously light and decadent at the same time!
I’ve garnished this cake with beautifully simple chocolate curls, they just take a couple of minutes to make!
