[ Indulge in this sweet treat from Amy Anderson's blog, DIY Candy - featuring the Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator from AJ Madison]
When it comes to autumn, I’m one of THOSE people. I get overly excited for fall every single year. I love the weather, and I love the color orange (have you seen my front door?). I love wearing puffer vests and drinking coffee, and my absolute favorite temperature is 57º (I’m very specific). But there’s one thing that’s even better than all of those combined: pumpkin spice everything. So if you’re wondering where this pumpkin icebox cake recipe came from, I think you have an inkling.
I recently moved into my new house and I was excited to get a new, large fridge so I could make an icebox cake for fall. Icebox cake recipes are no bake (right up my alley) and delicious. We got our
Samsung Family Hub fridge from AJ Madison and it has plenty of room for everything! Including all sorts of holiday treats and desserts, like this icebox cake recipe. Here’s how I made it.
White Chocolate & Pumpkin Icebox Cake Recipe
- One box cinnamon graham crackers
- 1 can pure pumpkin (15 oz)
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 8 oz block cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- cinnamon and whipped cream for garnish (optional)
Tools: 9″ springform pan, hand mixer
In a medium (chilled) bowl, add the heavy whipping cream and sugar. Using the hand mixer, beat the whipped cream and sugar on medium speed until stiff peaks form. This can take 1 – 2 minutes. Don’t overbeat.
NOTE: If you want to make additional whipped cream for topping, double the heavy whipping cream to four cups and the sugar to one cup. Mix like above and then remove half of the mixture from the bowl and set aside for serving.
Add the cream cheese, pumpkin, pie spice, and vanilla extract. Mix until just combined using a spatula or the hand mixer on low speed.
Fold in the white chocolate chips.
Break up the graham crackers to cover the bottom of your springform pan. Start with large pieces and then go around the edges with smaller pieces. My photo should help illustrate . . . you can’t mess up an icebox cake.
Spread 1/3 of your pumpkin mixture on top of the graham crackers. Place more graham crackers on top then repeat. You’re going to have three layers of graham cracker and three layers of pumpkin mixture, with the top being pumpkin.
Stick in the fridge and chill for at least four hours.
Serve your pumpkin icebox cake garnished with whipped cream and cinnamon if you like!
This icebox cake recipe couldn’t be any easier! Notice the amazing layers of graham and pumpkin – that graham softens during the refrigeration process so that the resulting icebox cake is just soft, creamy amazing-ness.
