The traditional icebox cake, that Grandmas all over the country, used to make was a dessert made with whipped cream and chocolate wafers or biscuits. The biscuits were stacked with layers of whipped cream to form a brick, which was then frozen overnight. The biscuits absorb the whipped cream and the cake could be served in slices. This version is a little bit different but just as delicious, if not better!
When making the salted caramel, make sure that you use real coarse ground sea salt, as you don’t want your caramel to taste too salty! Here are a few other things you’ll need for this no-bake cake: chocolate and caramel ice cream topping, lots of Oreo cookies, a cup of your favorite coffee and lashings of freshly whipped cream!
If you’re a fan of Salted Caramel coffee beverages, you’ll definitely love this savory sweet dessert with its luxurious taste of the coffee. It’s perfect for making up in advance, as you need to make sure it’s well chilled before cutting this great tasting treat, so that it can be shared with your family or dinner guests.
How to Make No Bake Salted Caramel Oreo Icebox Cake
Start by lining an 8 inch by 8-inch making tray with non- stick paper.
Dip 16 Oreo cookies in the cooled coffee mixture, I add a little sugar to the coffee as I have a sweet tooth and place the dipped biscuits in the bottom of the pan.
Now in a bowl, mix together the caramel topping and sea salt. You can adjust the salt taste to your liking, depending on if your sea salt is coarse or fine.
In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese and caramel until creamy. To this mix, add and fold in 2 cups of Cool Whip.
Spread half the caramel cheesecake mixture over the bottom layer of Oreo cookies in the pan.
Add another layer of dipped Oreo biscuits and top with the remaining caramel cheesecake.
Decorate the top by spreading 1 cup of Cool Whip over the top.
Now put our creation into the fridge, for at least a couple of hours but preferably overnight until well set.
Cut into squares using a knife that has been dipped into boiling water. Top with extra Cool Whip, caramel, and chocolate syrups, and extra sea salt if desired. Cut into 16 squares. Store in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator.
