This Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Box Cake is the perfect sweet treat. Made with delicious allergen-free chocolate chip cookies from Julia’s Table and a dairy free + paleo vanilla pudding, this dessert is so easy to whip together and is a real crowd pleaser.
Traditionally, Ice Box Cakes are made by making layers with cream and wafers and refrigerating them overnight. We followed that same concept, but used delicious nutrient-dense Paleo vanilla pudding instead of whipped cream. It has full fat coconut milk, egg yolks, and gelatin, and it’s sweetened only with maple syrup! If you’d like to make this Paleo vanilla pudding on its own, I would suggest taking the gelatin down to just 1 T. We needed the extra gelatin so the cake would firm up enough to make slices! In this recipe, it has more of a cheesecake consistency, which goes perfectly with these delicious Julia’s Table Chocolatey Chunk Cookies.
If you are not familiar with Julia’s Table, they are an allergen-free baking company based in Utah. Inspired by one of the founders’ mother who has celiac disease, their products were developed to taste delicious while excluding the top 8 allergens. They offer a variety of products that include breads, rolls, wraps, cookies and brownies.
If you’re close to me in Denver, you can find these delicious cookies and brownies at your local King Sooper’s! Find them in the baking department with the other pre-made cookies and brownies.
