No-Bake Turtle Icebox Cake


4 more days until Christmas! eek!!! I am definitely NOT ready, but I have the perrrfect last minute holiday cake for Christmas day 🙂

No-Bake Turtle Icebox CakeYou see this cake right here? This is the easiest cake I have ever made in my life, hands down. No-bake and no-stove top. I thought the last recipe I posted was pretty easy, but this was literally almost no work at all, which is perfect during the hectic holiday season. Caramel, chocolate, pecans, and whipped cream…what’s not to love? The combination is fitting for the holidays, and its nice to get away from all the peppermint desserts around Christmas time.

I was kinda shocked at how yummy this cake turned out, because like I said, I put in almost no work at all. The only thing I wished was that I made more, because the flavor was positively delectable! This cake will definitely impress guests if you are holding a Christmas party, and can be whipped up last minute if guests show up unannounced. If you are holding a party, you probably would want to double up on all the ingredients, and use a bigger baking dish.

If you don’t like chocolate chips, try using shaved chocolate for the topping. I was aiming to use shaved chocolate, but I only had chocolate chips in my pantry, and it ended up turning out delightful! Really such an appetizing dessert, I plan to make this again soon because it was just mouthwatering delicious!

( I will be away visiting family for Christmas this year, so hopefully I still get to blog if I’m not so busy during the holiday. If I am, I will resume with my yummy recipes when I return 🙂 MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS! )
