Here is an easy and yummy Strawberry & Cream Icebox cake recipe! There are some non-traditional icebox cake secret ingredients that are fun!

Icebox cakes have been around for awhile, but I just finished making my first one!  My husband and I were saying how we hadn’t had strawberry shortcake all summer *gasp*!  I was totally craving it, but I didn’t want to make a traditional strawberry shortcake.  I decided to make strawberry shortcake in the form of an icebox cake.  This is a scrumptious strawberry dessert that is creamy and delicious!

Dollar General is probably the closest store I have to my house to pick up groceries and other miscellaneous items. I often go there for quick shopping trips.  Lucky for me, they had most of the ingredients I needed for this recipe.  I made a spur of the moment shopping trip for the ingredients I needed that I already didn’t have on hand.  Have you tried their Clover Valley line of products?  These to me are just as good, if not better, than other name brand items!

3.  Place a single layer of vanilla wafers in a 9×13 pan.  Top with 1/2 of the cream mixture.  You may want to use a spoon and place 6 dollops spread out on top of the wafers.  It will be easier to spread that way.

4.  Repeat the layer of wafers and cream mixture again.

The next morning, cut more strawberries in half and add as a final topping.  If you’ve never had an icebox cake before, it really is important to let it sit overnight.  If the temptation is just too much and you dive it too soon, the wafers won’t be soft and it honestly just isn’t as good as it is the next day.

This recipe was actually the WINNING recipe on the Dollar General contest poll!!

Now even though it won – I have to give the disclaimer that there wasn’t a whole lot of buzz about this “contest.”  It was basically one of those “who can get the most friends to click their recipe” contest.  No one actually tasted these recipes and voted like you would in a real contest.  So it’s really a fake contest win – but it still tastes like “heaven in your mouth” as my daughter said when she tasted this strawberries and cream icebox cake!.  😉
