Its simple, easy to make, and can be changed to so many flavors. This dessert is nearly perfect after every meal. It’s sweet, fluffy, and I like adding a little bit of fresh fruit to really brighten it up, it is definitely a family favorite. Its a hit anytime I make it.

No Bake Ice Box Cake doesn’t require any amazing baking skills. It doesn’t matter if your a great cook. Its so simple even a child can put it together. Graham crackers, whipped topping, vanilla pudding, milk, and fresh fruit are all you need. It can literally be made in any flavors that tickle your fancy. Its simple, and definitely old fashion. You simply layer the ingredients, and pop it in the icebox. You don’t get easier than this. Here’s how to make this easy dessert.

Here are the ingredients you will need:

  • 10.2 ounce box instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 6 cups milk
  • 14.4 ounce box graham crackers (approximately)
  • 8 ounce container Cool Whip
  • Fresh fruit (Blueberries, Raspberry, Strawberries)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the pudding mix with the milk for 2 minutes. Set aside for 5 minutes to thicken.
  2. Line the bottom of a 9×13-inch pan with graham crackers (you may need to use halves or quarters to fill in spots). 
  3. Spread half of the pudding over the layer of graham crackers. 
  4. Add another layer of graham crackers on top of the pudding, then spread with the remaining pudding.
  5.  Top with a final layer of graham crackers and spread the Cool Whip evenly over top. 
  6. Crush 1 graham cracker into crumbs and sprinkle over the Cool Whip. You can also top with fruit at this time instead of graham cracker crumbs. 
  7. Cover and refrigerate until cold and set, about 3 hours, or overnight. Leftovers should be stored, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

NOTES:

You can change the flavor of this cake by changing the pudding that you use. Chocolate is great, and so is butterscotch. It also doesn’t matter if you change the fruit that you top the cake with.
