 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!

  1. Tried your boxed cake mix tweak with bananas, and added coffee instead of water. It was fantastic! Used your one minute frosting, which is now my go-to recipe – I LOVE rich, moist cakes with a ganache-like topping or filling, and your recipe was exactly what I was searching for!!
