No Bake Strawberry Ice Box Cake

This No Bake Strawberry Ice Box Cake is so easy to make and only requires a few simple ingredients. It comes together in minutes, and has the most amazing flavor. You will love this no bake dessert, with a perfect chocolate ganache.

 This is seriously one of the easiest desserts that I have ever made. It has only a few ingredients and all that you do is layer them, then throw it in the fridge- no baking required.
This dessert is so fresh and yummy and reminds me of strawberry shortcake. Plus the chocolate ganache on top is the perfect finishing touch.

what could I use in place of graham crackers?

This recipe calls for graham crackers but you could easily replace them. Here is what we recommend:

-Golden Grahams Cereal (we crushed ours)
-Vanilla Wafers
-Biscoff Cookies
-Vanilla Oreos
-Teddy Grahams

how far in advance can I make this dessert?

This recipe explains that it is best when it has sat in the fridge for about four hours. You could eat it sooner, but the texture is best when the graham crackers have softened a little.

We recommend making this four hours in advance, or even the night before. If you make it more than 24 hours in advance, the graham crackers will get a little soggy and might not be as enjoyable.

how should i store this?

This cake is best stored in the freezer. If you do plan to make it 48 hours in advance, we recommend freezing it for the first 24, then thawing it in the fridge 24 hours before serving it.

We don’t recommend making it more than 48 hours in advance.

We also recommend covering it tightly with saran wrap or foil, to keep out moisture, as well as to keep it from drying out.

It’s also common for foods with whipped cream to take on other food in the fridge, so for the best results, keep it covered tightly.

  • 2 pounds fresh strawberries, washed
  • 3 1/2 cups whipping cream, divided
  • 1/3 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract (optional)
  • 4 sleeves (about 19 ounces, or 24 to 28 whole crackers) graham crackers
  • 4 ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped


  1. Take out a few of the best-looking strawberries and set them aside for the garnish. Hull the remainder of the strawberries and slice each berry into thin slices.
  2. With a hand mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer, whip 3 cups of cream until it just holds stiff peaks.
  3. Add the confectioners sugar, vanilla, and almond extract (if using) and whip to combine.
  4. Spread a small spoonful of whipped cream on the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan, or a similarly-sized platter. Lay down six graham crackers. Lightly cover the top of the graham crackers with a thin layer of whipped cream, and then a single layer of strawberries. Repeat three more times, until you have four layers of graham crackers. Spread the last of the whipped cream over the top and swirl it lightly with a spoon. Add a few more strawberries.
  5. To make the ganache, heat the remaining cream until bubbles form around the edges, then pour over the chopped chocolate. Let it stand for a few minutes, then whisk until the mixture is thick and glossy.
  6. Drizzle this over the layered dessert with a spoon, or transfer to a squeeze bottle and use that to drizzle.
  7. Refrigerate for at least four hours, or until the crackers have softened completely. Garnish with additional berries.
