Ingredients

Scale

For the Icebox Cake:

  • 2 standard packages of Graham crackers
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 14 oz marshmallow fluff
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 cups hot fudge sauce, slightly warmed to easily spreadable consistency but not hot
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows

Topping Ideas:

  • Additional mini marshmallows
  • Crushed graham crackers
  • Broken pieces of milk chocolate bar

Instructions

  1. In a bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the cream cheese and marshmallow fluff until smooth and creamy. In a separate bowl whip the heavy cream for about 4-5 minutes or until stiff peaks form. Use a rubber spatula to fold the whipped cream into the marshmallow fluff mixture until smooth and combined. 
  2. In the bottom of a springform pan start building your icebox layers by adding an even layer of graham crackers to the bottom of the pan. Breaking the graham crackers into halves or pieces to cover the bottom of the pan the best that you can.
  3. Add an even layer of marshmallow fluff filling, using half of the mixture. Next, evenly cover with a cup of mini marshmallows. Then, drizzle on a layer of hot fudge sauce using half of the sauce. 
  4. Repeat starting with the graham cracker layer until all ingredients are used and the pan is full ending with the hot fudge layer.
  5. After the last hot fudge layer garnish with toppings of your choice, such as some mini marshmallows, a sprinkle of crushed graham cracker, and milk chocolate pieces. 
  6. Gently cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or up to 1-2 days in advance.
