tfdo 0798703 THANK YOU!

Looks yummy. Might use nilla wafers instead of grahams. FYI this should hold up well in a cooler for a couple hours easy.

HOw long will this recipe hold up when I have to take it to a luncheon (in a cooler)? We usually meet by 12 P.M. and have dessert at about 1-130.

Hi there! So, since this is an icebox cake, if you just put it in a cooler it won't hold up. However, the Test Kitchen recommends freezing it the night before. Then, you can take it to your luncheon in the cooler and it should thaw enough and be perfect in time for dessert! Enjoy!
