Can you make this chocolate chip cookie ice box cake gluten free?

YES YOU SURE CAN. Simply swap out the store bought chocolate chip cookies (we used Chips Ahoy) for a gluten free chocolate chip cookie and you’re good to go!  That is the beauty of this recipe–it’s super easily tweaked and customized so you can fit it to whatever your needs are!

How to store this chocolate chip cookie ice box cake

Another wonderful feature of icebox cakes is that they’ll keep in your freezer for a decent amount of time. If you don’t finish your whole icebox cake in one sitting, simply wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and place in the freezer until ready to eat again! Our icebox cake lasted 2 months in the freezer before it started to taste a little freezer burnt. But I can guarantee yours will never last that long 🙂

We hope you enjoy this nutella chocolate chip cookie icebox cake just as much as we do. SO LIKE A LOT.

Happy baking!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups heavy cream, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 33 Chips Ahoy Cookies
  • 1 cup Nutella spread (about 1 7.7 ounce jar)

Instructions

  1. In a standing mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the remaining 2 cups of heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla extract and salt and beat well. Set aside.
  2. Line the inside of a standard-sized loaf pan with plastic wrap on all sides. Working in layers and starting with the whipped cream mixture, spoon and spread the whipped cream,  dunk the Chips Ahoy cookies in milk before laying out into an even layer, breaking the cookies up into small pieces to get them to completely fill in and cover the whipped cream. Drizzle a few heaping Tablespoons of Nutella over the cookies, using an offset spatula or a spoon to spread into an even layer.
  3. Repeat layers until your loaf pan is full, finishing with a layer of whipped cream. It’s completely up to you how much you spoon on each layer– if you want more whipped cream, do it! More chocolate, do it!
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer to set for at least 3 hours.
  5. When ready to serve, take the icebox cake out of the freezer. and lift out of the loaf pan, inverting the cake onto a serving dish.
  6. If desired, top with crumbled cookies. Use a hot, sharp knife to slice and serve! Enjoy.

  1. Why do you say 2 cups heavy cream, divided? The first sentence says to whip the remaining 2 cups of heavy cream, but I can’t see where more cream was used. Thanks!
