Chocolate Chocolate Icebox Dessert

Linda Larsen
Chocolate Chocolate Icebox Dessert is a super easy make-ahead recipe that is elegant and delicious. This is technically a three-ingredient recipe, since we don't count sugar or flavorings in the total number. For the original recipe, see Old Fashioned Chocolate Dessert.

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: Serves 8


  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 package plain chocolate wafer cookies


Beat together cream, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and vanilla until stiff.

Spread a strip of whipped cream down the center of a serving plate to put the cookies on. Spread a generous spoonful on each cookie and stack them on their sides on the whipped cream on the plate to make a long log.

You'll need to judge the number of cookies to use. When about 1/3 of the cream is left, stop adding cookies and start frosting the outside of the log.

When the cookies are frosted and stacked, cover the entire log with more whipped cream thickly and thoroughly. Be sure to get all the way around the sides of the cookies with the cream. Cover and chill in refrigerator for at least eight hours. Slice on a diagonal to serve.

Or, you can divide the wafers into eight groups. Frost the top of each wafer and stack them vertically, making eight stacks of cookies. Then frost the top and sides of each little stack, like you would a cake. Top each with a maraschino cherry half and chill for at least four hours. Serve one stack to each diner.

Fabulous, Guest

My mother made the plain version of this dessert. I was so glad to find a really chocolate version. People think this is hard to make but it's so easy. It's the easiest and richest dessert in the world.
