Peanut Butter Chocolate Ice Box Cake

Erin SheehanThis year, as my birthday rolled around, I wanted to reprise last year’s ice cream cake recipe. But as the date approached, it became apparent that it would be way too hot to bake the bottom layer of an ice cream cake. I started looking around for a recipe that would satisfy – one with no baking at all! I finally found an ice box cake recipe and modified it to fit the bill.

This cake recipe was not cheap to make, in fact I am quite certain I could have bought a premade cake cheaper. But it sure does taste a lot better when you make your own, doesn’t it? Here’s the recipe in case you have a birthday coming up this summer and you don’t want to use the oven, but want something sweet and special.
