You only need a stack of Chocolate Wafer Cookies and some whipped cream to make these delicious No-Bake Icebox Cupcakes. Each cupcake is made by simply alternating Chocolate Wafers with whipped cream. But you have to plan ahead as you can’t eat these cupcakes right away. They must be chilled in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours. This allows time for the whipped cream to soften the crisp and crunchy Chocolate Wafers.
Icebox Cupcakes are a simpler version of an Icebox Cake (also known as a Refrigerator Cake). You can scale this recipe up or down depending on how many cupcakes you want to make.
If you are in a rush you can use store bought Chocolate Wafers to make these cupcakes. But I encourage you to try the recipe for homemade Chocolate Wafers. They are delicious. And I like how they are relatively low in fat, their texture is wonderfully crisp and crunchy, they have an appealing chocolate flavor, and they store very well. You might want to put a few aside to nibble on with a tall glass of cold milk.
For the whipped cream I have used a vanilla flavored whipped cream. However, you could flavor the cream with instant coffee, jam, fruit purees, crushed freeze dried fruit, or even finely chopped nuts. And you can decorate the tops of the Icebox Cupcakes with fresh berries, shaved chocolate, candy sprinkles, chocolate sprinkles, or chopped nuts.
