Cookie Icebox Cake

Seven Layers of Chocolate Chip and Cinnamon Chip Cookies with Mascarpone Whipped Cream and topped with homemade chocolate sauce. from #dietersdownfall.comOH Wow!

I think I may have outdone myself here… What do you think of this gorgeously stunning Icebox Cake?

It’s the first Icebox Cake that I made and had. I was telling my Mom about making this and how good it was and she told me about how my Grandmother used to make Icebox Cakes with chocolate wafers. Ummm… where were these cakes when I was a kid Mom? Why did you not make your mother’s desserts?

Thank goodness for Martha Stewart to fill me in on the awesomeness of this dessert. To add to Ms. Stewart’s recipe, I made some homemade Chocolate Sauce to pour over the top.

Also, I found these adorable spoons while at Epcot and wanted to show them off… I wanted one in each color, but just got these two cute ones.  It was so hard to resist all the cuteness!

But I digress…

This was the first time I made an Icebox Cake and it’s the first time that I made my own Chocolate Syrup. All I can say is, why didn’t someone tell me how good homemade chocolate syrup was?? Oh my!
