  • 1 box of chocolate graham crackers
  • 1 quart of heavy whipping cream
  • 2 Tablespoons of confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • hot fudge
  • mini chocolate chips

1. In a large metal bowl, mix cream until soft peaks form. Add confectioners’ sugar and vanilla and continue to mix until stiff peaks form.
2. Crush the graham crackers. I put them in plastic bags and used a rolling pin. They were so easy to crush up.
3. Add a layer of graham crackers, then whipped cream. Repeat until you fill the entire mason jar making sure the last layer is whipped cream. Top off with a cherry and mini-chocolate chips.
4. Chill. This is the most important step. This is the secret to making this recipe even better: Let the mason jar icebox cakes chill in the fridge for 4-6 hours before serving.
5. Serve with hot fudge and extra chocolate chips.
  • I like to put the metal bowl in the freezer and let it get cold before I used it to mix up the cream.

    Do they still make chocolate graham crackers???? I've been looking for them for a few years now and haven't located them. We live in N. E. and they used to be made by the Nabisco company. I love anything chocolate!! Thanks for any help locating them.
