Zebra chocolate icebox cake
(inspired by larecetadelafelicidad)

icebox cake
10 cocoa cookies with vanilla cream filling (Oreo)
1/3 cup milk
3/4 cup whipping cream
2 teaspoons sugar

chocolate frosting
1/2 cup whipping cream
4 oz chocolate, chopped

3 tablespoons chopped almonds


For the icebox cake
In a medium bowl whip together whipping cream and sugar until stiff and soft peaks form.
Dip each cookie into milk, only for a few seconds, the cookies should only be dipped, not soaked.

Spread whipped cream on one side of each cookie and stack them together in a line. (picture below) 

Transfer cookie snake to a plate lined with baking paper and cover cake completely with remaining whipping cream.
Place in freezer for about 2 hours, or until whipping cream is set.

For the chocolate frosting:
In a small saucepan bring whipping cream to a boil. Add chopped chocolate and let rest for a few minutes, stir until dissolved.
Take cake out of the fridge and cover completely with the chocolate frosting.
Sprinkle with chopped almonds and store for another 2 hours in the freezer or until you are ready to enjoy...

Cut icebox cake diagonal to admire the beautiful zebra look inside.

    1. Hello Sarah, what a nice compliment. I've got the platter from amazon. In Germany we normally eat our Bratwurst from these paper plates. The platter I used it made from porcelain. You can find it here;-) Thanks for stopping by;-)
