Mocha Chocolate Icebox Cake

This is my absolute favorite summer dessert right now. It’s totally over-the-top, with layers of chocolate chip cookies and coffee & chocolate flavored whipped cream. I guarantee you will be running back to the fridge to grab more! It’s so simple to make – just a little whipping and layering, then leave it in the fridge overnight to soften the cookies (this is by far the hardest part). I recently brought this to a bbq and everyone loved it, so I promised I would post the recipe here. I can’t say enough good things about this cake, it’s so delicious!

Although you can probably use any kind of chocolate chip cookie out there (including homemade if you felt so inclined), I would highly recommend you try it with Tate’s (I buy mine at Whole Foods or Fresh Direct) first. They are really crispy and thin and maintain the perfect texture in the cake. I’ve made this cake 4 or 5 times now, and every time I’ve used Tate’s, so I can’t be held responsible if another cookie doesn’t give you the same amazing outcome. :)



  1. Sounds way too yummy! Please eat it all before I arrive.

  2. Yum! I will try this at Thanksgiving, the next time I have a chance to experiment in the kitchen!

    Starting my no Jube Jubes or desserts for a month but I would take a short break from the mini diet to have at least one, no make it two pieces of this dessert. Pops
