This no-bake Gingersnap Turtle Icebox Cake is loaded with a sweet and creamy molasses filling, crisp gingersnap cookies and a hot fudge and caramel topping that’s to die for!
If you’re looking for a holiday inspired dessert that doesn’t require oven space, then this cake is for you!
This recipe is straight out of my good friend Julianne’s cookbook, “No-Bake Treats.” You may know Julianne’s delicious blog, Beyond Frosting, where she shares incredible dessert recipes. Well, she took it one step further with her new book. It’s loaded with incredible unbaked cheesecakes, icebox cakes, pies and so much more!
I had one heck of a time picking out one recipe to share on the blog.
Everything looks so good, but since we’re heading into the holidays, I couldn’t resist trying this gingersnap turtle icebox cake. I’m a sucker for anything that includes gingersnaps.
It doesn’t much simpler than this recipe, either. Layer the cookies on the bottom of a spring form pan and top with a layer of the molasses infused cream cheese spread.
PRO TIP: I love that Julianne includes tips within her instruction. She recommends lining the bottom of the springform pan with parchment paper before attaching the springform sides. Genius!
Once you have all your layers done, pop this beauty in the freezer and let it chill for at least 4 hours.
When you’re ready, pile on the turtle-inspired toppings of chopped pecans, caramel and hot fudge. It’s the perfect addition to this cake, and really makes it look so fancy!
I invited some family and friends over to give this cake a try, and it was a HUGE success. Everyone licked their plates clean and so did I!
I can’t wait to try more of the delicious recipes in this cookbook!
If you’re looking for a great gift idea, or just want this cookbook for yourself (you do, trust me), you can find it in bookstores now, or on Amazon HERE.
Bring on all the holiday goodies!!
