Servings 4 people


  • 1 box chocolate graham crackers
  • 1 qt heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp confectioner's sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 jar hot fudge
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips


  • In a large metal bowl, mix cream until soft peaks form.
    Add confectioners' sugar and vanilla and continue to mix until stiff peaks form.
    Note:  my friend recommended I put a metal bowl in the freezer and let it get cold before I used it to mix up the cream.
  • Crush the graham crackers.
    Note:  I put them in plastic bags and used a rolling pin.  They were so easy to crush up.
  • Add a layer of graham crackers, then whipped cream.
    Repeat until you fill the entire mason jar making sure the last layer is whipped cream.
    Top off with a cherry and mini-chocolate chips.
  • Chill. This is the most important step.
    This is the secret to making this recipe even better: Let the mason jar icebox cakes chill in the fridge for 4-6 hours before serving.
  • Serve with hot fudge and extra chocolate chips.
