No-bake dessert crazes seem to come and go, and right now, I think we’re in one! Actually, they may seem trendy, but no-bake items have been around for a long time: ever since people wanted to save time and avoid turning on the oven. This icebox cookie cake is one of the oldest and most classic. And as a bonus, it’s also the easiest. Simple ingredients of cookies and whipped cream create quite a stunning dessert!

This sounds too good to be true, but it really is this easy and becomes a true cake!
