Chocolate Icebox Cake Recipe

The chocolate icebox cake is very successful! A layer of chocolate ganache, chocolate mousse and chocolate graham crackers topped with chocolate sauce for a decadent treat that will make you a chocolate coma.

This time i decided to use chocolate. I mean, when are tons of chocolate not a good idea?

Layers like chocolate mousse are not real mousse, but the texture is very much like a mousse. That is also delicious. Chocolate ganache is thicker, so they contrast with each other well.

Chocolate graham biscuits help to give the structure of the cake and put everything together. Plus, they have more chocolate.

This cake is very successful. All my taste testers are fans. Some of my favorite taste testers are the children of my co-workers and i have heard there is debate about who gets the last piece of this special cake.
