Voortman products give me all of that. They’ve been around for over 60 years, making amazing wafer cookies, turnovers, and so much more! Not only are their products perfect for recipes in the kitchen, they transfer over to awesome art projects, or fun learning experiences for the kids. My favorite is using them to create original recipes that my children will still have fond memories of long after their childhood is over.

My most recent recipe is a strawberry shortcake icebox cake! Despite its fancy appearance, this recipe is surprisingly simple and something that would be very easy for the kids to pitch in and help with. You only need a frozen loaf pound cake, strawberry ice cream, whipped topping and of course, your Voortman wafers.

To start, cut your pound cake into 3 layers. Place a piece of plastic wrap along the inside of your loaf pan, this will help you get the cake out later. Then, place the bottom layer into a loaf pan, spread a layer of strawberry ice cream on top.

Here is where you can get creative! Add a layer of strawberries, or even some crumbled Voortman wafer cookies! Just know this, if you use strawberries they will freeze while setting in the freezer. If that bothers you, then consider using the Voortman wafer cookies instead.

Voortman wafer cookies are easy to shape and crumble! Place them into a bag and crunch them with your hands or a rolling pin. It doesn’t take long.

Once all of your layers have been placed, pull the sides of your plastic up and cover the top loosely. Place into the freezer for a few hours and then serve!
