Little Ladyfingers Chocolate Icebox Cake

The Little Ladyfingers Chocolate Icebox Cake is a fresh and delicious cake perfect as a dessert. It’s an easy to make no-bake recipe, which means it’s perfect if we don’t want to use the oven. To make the layers i’ve used some Pavesini: little biscuits only sold in Italy i guess, if you can’t get them…no fear! You can used some sliced pound cake. If you want to personalize the cake, you can add some ingredients to the filling, such as fresh chopped berries for example. Let’s see the recipe!
