Nutter Butter Nutella Icebox Cake

Do you guys know the tight pants song from Jimmy Fallon?

{Gord and I are a little obsessed with that man. I actually gave Gordon his book for Father’s Day!}

Well in this house, we sing fat pants.

“Everybody’s talkin’ ’bout my fat pants. I got my fat pants. I got my fat pants on!”

We sing this for a number of reasons, but mainly because I make ridiculous desserts like this.

It all started with this Nutter Butter Nutella Pie. {Just, YES.}

All roads paved with nutter butters and nutella are roads I want to travel. AmIright?

So that was YEARS ago that I posted it {all you newbies will definitely want to click through to make THAT gem} but different variations of that recipe have always lingered around in my brain, ready to pop out at any moment.

Well, I’m not sure whether it was the 104 temperatures we’re supposed to get this week {kill me now} or the fact that I haven’t purchased nutter butters SINCE I made that pie back in 2011 but either way, I knew I had to use this brilliant cookie-nutella combination in an equally easy yet devilish way IMMEDIATELY. {–>Can’t explain. I don’t even understand myself, you guys.}

So this is what popped out of my brain and onto your screens this very day.

You’re welcome, America.

Nutter Butter Nutella Icebox Cake

While it is the very definition of devilish, it is also cold, sweet, refreshing and is the perfect chocolate/peanut butter combination. The softened cookie texture with the creamy nutella concoction makes for one heck of a dessert. Add a little whipped cream and this dessert will move into OMG status.

I knew this dessert was going to be trouble, so I took my pictures, my few bites*, portioned it all out and sent it off to other homes because THERE IS NO ROOM AT THE INN**.

Anyways, this dessert is amazing and I have a funny feeling all ya’lls will love it too. Enjoy! Happy Wednesday 🙂

    This looks super decadent (& guilty lol) but I’ll put it in my recipe box just in case I finally lose that 3 pounds!

    Are you are aware of Gulliver’s Gate, near Times Square? It’s a fairly new attraction based on a train layout going through many countries. You might want to check their website to see if it’s appropriate for your family.
