Chocolate Icebox Pie

Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 1 1/3 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

 

For the Fillings:

  • 2/3 cup + 2 tbsp granulated sugar, divided
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 5 tbsp flour
  • 1 3/4 squares unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 can (12 oz.) evaporated milk or ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups small marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Semisweet chocolate for grating
  • 2 tbsp chopped pecans

Method

For the Crust:

1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees C. In a small mixing bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, butter, and sugar. Stir to blend ingredients until all crumbs are evenly moistened by the butter.

2. Pat the graham cracker mixture evenly into a pie plate or dish using the back of a spoon, covering the bottom and sides of the dish completely to form a crust.

3. Bake the crust for 8 minutes in the oven till crust hardens. Cool before filling.

 

For the Fillings:

1. Combine 2/3 cup of sugar, salt, and flour in a small saucepan. Melt chocolate squares (Easiest way is to melt it in a small dish in the microwave), then add the melted chocolate to the dry mixture along with the evaporated milk or cream. Whisk together to blend ingredients.

2. Add 1 cup of water and beaten egg yolks, whisk again. Turn heat to medium low and continue to whisk for 10-15 minutes. The mixture will heat slowly and take on a thicker consistency and become a custard. Don’t leave the pan alone for very long or the custard will burn/congeal to the bottom of the pan. Continue whisking until the custard thickens and begins to stick to the whisk in small lumps. Remove from heat.

3. Melt in the butter, then whisk in the marshmallows, which will melt into the custard. Let mixture return to room temperature.

4. Fill cooled graham cracker crust with the custard.

5. Place pie uncovered in the refrigerator and chill for at least 6 hours till set (preferably overnight).

6. At least 1 ½ hours before serving, combine 1 cup of heavy whipping cream and 2 tbsp sugar in a medium mixing bowl. Whip on medium high for a few minutes until the cream is light and fluffy.

7. Spread the freshly whipped cream on top of the pie with a spatula. If you have more time and want a more elegant presentation, you can pipe the cream across the top of the pie with a star tip.

8. Grate semisweet chocolate into 2-3 tbsp of chocolate shavings.

9. Sprinkle the chocolate shavings onto the top of the pie, along with 2 tbsp chopped pecans. Chill for at least 1 hour longer before serving.

Chia Icebox Cake

Ingredients

For the pudding:

  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder

 

For assembling the cake:

  • 1 box graham crackers (you will need about 2/3 of the box)

 

For the frosting:

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Method:

1. Whisk together chia seeds through cocoa powder until smooth. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Transfer to a blender and blend until smooth.

2. Line an 8×8 pan with one sheet of plastic wrap large enough so that the ends can be folded over the top of the pan (smooth out as many wrinkles as possible so they don’t get stuck in between cake layers).

3. Cover the bottom with one layer of graham cracker sheets, breaking the sheets if necessary to get a flat layer. Spread a thin layer of pudding over the sheets—about ½ to ¾ cup. Repeat layering until pudding is gone, ending with a layer of graham crackers. Freeze for at least two hours.

4. Once frozen, unmold the cake by gently overturning the pan over a cutting board or serving plate and removing the plastic wrap.

5. Combine the Greek yogurt with vanilla and maple syrup–consistency will be pourable. Use a spatula to spread it around more evenly. Top with fresh cut fruit, sprinkles, shaved chocolate and freeze for an additional 25-40 minutes, or until yogurt hardens.

6. Store in the freezer (yogurt may get soft in the fridge). Thaw at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Blueberry Lemon Icebox Cake

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1 cup chopped, pitted Medjool dates
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 large frozen bananas cut into 1-2 inch chunks
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk
  • 1½ teaspoons gluten free vanilla extract
  • 1 cup frozen organic blueberries
  • 2 cups raw cashews, soaked in water for at least 30 minutes preferably overnight
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil, in liquid form
  • ½ cup raw honey
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed Meyer lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Meyer lemon zest
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons water, if needed
  • ½-3/4 cups sliced raw almonds for garnish

Method

For the crust:

1. Combine the almonds, oats, dates, and salt in a food processor. Process until the ingredients begin to clump together, about 1- 1½ minutes. Transfer the mixture to an 8-inch spring form pan, gently pressing the crust into the pan and around the edges until the crust layer is level and smooth.

 

For the Blueberry “Ice Cream” Layer:

1. Using a clean food processor combine the frozen banana pieces, almond milk, and vanilla extract. Process until the mixture resembles the consistency of soft serve ice cream; this will take at least 1-2 minutes. Feel free to add another tablespoon of almond milk if it is too hard to process. Once the bananas are to the right consistency add the frozen blueberries and process again, scraping the sides as necessary, until the berries are incorporated and the mixture resembles soft serve ice cream.

2. Pour the “ice cream” over the crust and smooth the top with a silicone spatula. Gently tap the pan against the kitchen counter to release any air bubbles that are trapped in the filling and place in the freezer until set, about 1½ – 2 hours.

 

For the Lemon “Cheesecake” & Almond Layers:

1. In a clean food processor combine the soaked cashews, coconut oil, honey, lemon zest and juice. Blend until completely smooth, stopping to scrape the sides as necessary. This step can take anywhere from 1-3 minutes depending on the strength of your machine.

2. Pour the blended cashew layer over the partially frozen blueberry layer. Smooth the top with a rubber spatula until even and gently tap the pan against the kitchen counter to release any air bubbles that are trapped in the filling.

3. Sprinkle the sliced almonds over the top of the cashew layer and press in gently with the palm of your hand. Place the pan back in the freezer for 6-8 hours or overnight until completely set.

To serve: Place the spring form pan on the counter at room temperature and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Gently remove the side wall of the pan from the cake. Slice and serve. Store any uneaten cake completely wrapped in the freezer.

Chocolate Banana Icebox Cake

Ingredients:

  • 15 ounces milk chocolate, chopped
  • 5 large egg yolks
  • Salt
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 20 graham cracker sheets
  • 4 or 5 ripe bananas, very thinly sliced lengthwise
  • whipped cream

Method:

1. Line a 5-by-10-inch loaf pan with plastic wrap. Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Place yolks and a pinch of salt in another heatproof bowl.

2. Bring cream to a simmer in a medium saucepan. Slowly pour cream into bowl with yolks, whisking constantly; return mixture to saucepan set over low heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, about 8 minutes (mixture should not come to a boil). Immediately strain through a fine sieve set over chocolate; stir until chocolate melts and is smooth. Refrigerate, stirring occasionally, until thick, about 4 hours.

3. Spread 1 cup chocolate mixture evenly into bottom of loaf pan. Top with a layer of 4 graham crackers, trimmed to fit. Spread 1/2 cup chocolate over tops, and cover with some bananas. Spread 1/2 cup chocolate over bananas, and top with a layer of 4 trimmed graham crackers. Repeat with remaining chocolate, bananas, and graham crackers until you reach the top of the pan; finish with graham crackers.

4. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight. Uncover, and turn out onto a serving platter. Remove plastic wrap. Garnish with whipped cream, and cut into slices.

Lemon Icebox Cake

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp fresh lemon zest
  • 2 TB granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup salted butter, very soft
  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ⅛ tsp table salt
  • zest of 2 large lemons
  • ⅓ cup fresh lemon juice (from 2 large lemons)
  • 25-30 whole graham crackers (3-4 sleeves)
  • 1 cup lemon curd, slightly warmed up (store bought or homemade)

 

Method:

1. In a small bowl, combine 1 tsp lemon zest and 2 TB granulated sugar. Mix well and set aside at room temp, uncovered.

2. In a large mixing bowl, whip the butter until very soft. Add in the heavy cream and continue beating until smooth. Add sugar, salt, and lemon zest. Whip until mixture forms firm peaks. Gradually beat in lemon juice, beating until fully incorporated. The lemon whipped cream should hold peaks; don’t worry if it starts to curdle.

3. Place warmed lemon curd in a Ziploc bag, press out the air, and seal bag. Cut a very tiny hole at bottom corner, and set aside.

Spread a small amount of lemon whipped cream onto the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish.

4. Lay down a layer of graham crackers (about 6). Spoon ¾ to 1 cup of lemon whipped cream over crackers. Drizzle about one-fourth of the lemon curd over the whipped cream layer. Repeat layering 3 more times. You should end up with four layers total, finished by the final drizzle of lemon curd.

5. Cover and let chill in fridge for 3-4 hours or overnight. Crackers will soften to a spongey cake texture.

6. Use a fork to break up lemon sugar and sprinkle over top of cake before serving.

Leftovers will keep well in fridge for 1-2 days.
