    Dear Amy,
    Thank you for the love, care and inspiration that goes into your recipes. As a dairy – free, gluten – free, no cane sugar cook and eater I receive so much encouragement from these daily presents in my in-box!
    This cake looks absolutely scrumptious and though I shouldn’t have the dairy, I know my husband would love it.
    Thanks so much for sharing your niece’s long distant birthday with me!

    I can only imagine how tough it has to be for you being so far from family. (I bet you’re not missing the cold so much though!) this looks like a lovely birthday cake!

    I wonder if I could use Cool Whip instead of the cream to accommodate dairy free eaters??

    We are so on the same wavelength–I was just dreaming of making an icebox cake yesterday! This looks gorgeous. I love the carob chip cookies in it, but as you say, I bet any cookie would work beautifully. I’m sure your niece will be thrilled–even if she can’t actually have a slice. :)

    Wow, this looks amazing and I’m so hungry right now I could eat a shoebox cake instead of an icebox cake! =) I’ll be saving this recipe for later. What a treat! Wish you were my neighbor. I’d pop over for a slice (begging, but in an appreciative way).

    It sounds like your niece is a wonderful young lady. :) This cake looks fantastic, too! Wow…

    BTW, I made your almond-butter cookies this weekend and now it is difficult to stop eating them! Even Hubby liked them. Thank you again for a marvellous blog!

    This looks absolutely divine. And I know just what you are feeling- my nephew is 16 hours away and it’s been 5 years now since I moved. It’s so hard to watch them grow up anyway, but from afar… it’s heart-wrenching. Thanks so much for doing what you do- I’m so glad to have “met” you through the blogging world, and we love your recipes <3

    Amy I can empathize with you.

    I have one neice and I am her god-mother. When she was little her nanan (me) was so special to her and we always had FUN. She was in Houston so I didn’t get to always spend time with her.

    Now she has a daughter, and she made me HER god-mother as well. I pick up Sophia every Tuesday afternoon from school and we get some special time together.

    Thank you for reminding me its not always the homework that we need to work on. Its the art and the chocolate chip cookie time as well that really help sweeten that special bond! She is 9 years old and growing up quickly! i know I will be saying the same thing you just wrote in no time at all.

    You and Allie are so blessed to have each other!

    So those gluten free cookies that were in question a few weeks ago will get a new chance on life tomorrow with Sophia manning the mixer!

    Thanks and Hugs!

    The cake looks phenomenal! I feel I can taste it just by looking at it. Love the inspiration that you had for making it.

    I don’t really know what an icebox cake is, but it sure sounds and looks delicious!

    is there to list nutrition facts for your recipes? I know it must be an annoying request, I only ask because I am gf and on Weight Watchers, I know, too much! ok if you can that would be awesome. If you can’t, I understand.

    BTW your blog and recipes are awesome!

    Miz Amy,
    I am so excited that I had an opportunity to have a wonderful slice of your Icebox Cake with Carob Chip Cookies, it was a little bit of heaven. Thank you so much for sharing it with us here at Full Plate Thursday. Hope you are having a great week end and please come back!
    Love You!
    Miz Helen

    2 cups of heavy cream??? Wow, that’s unhealthy. Replace with unsweetened almond milk.


    Amy Reply:

    @James Sklar, The recipe wouldn’t work with unsweetened almond milk. You’d have a soppy mess on your hands.

    You’re right – it’s not the healthiest recipe but once in a while a little indulgence is perfectly ok in my book.

    I’m curious… why do you put the coffee granules in it? Do they give it a coffee taste? I can’t stand coffee so I’m just curious.


    Amy Reply:

    @Sherri, I get this question all of the time! You can’t taste the coffee at all. Coffee just enhances the flavor of the chocolate. You can omit if you’d like.


    Sherri Reply:

    @Amy, Thanks for your reply! I may give it a try. :)
