When I saw this Pumpkin Chocolate Icebox Cake recipe in the November issue of Sunset magazine I knew I had to try it. It is a very easy, no bake recipe, which makes a delicious, fall dessert. It’s pretty from the top and even prettier when you cut a slice! I tried it last weekend and it was a hit. Perhaps this will be a new tradition for our Thanksgiving table!no cook, Pumpkin icebox Cake

Nancy, this is such a pretty cake, and I love how easy it is to make. I’ve seen Icebox Cakes before, but not with pumpkin and definitely not this pretty! It would make such a lovely fall celebration cake. I’m featuring this post at the party this week. Hope to ‘see’ you there! Thank you so much for sharing with the Hearth and Soul Link Party. Have a lovely week!
