- 3 cups chilled heavy cream, divided
- 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, divided
- 1 cup softened cream cheese
- 9 to 12 chocolate graham crackers, broken into squares
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
In a medium bowl, add 2 cups cream and 6 tablespoons sugar and whisk, using a hand mixer, until soft peaks form, 3 to 4 minutes. Slowly add the cream cheese and beat until fully incorporated.
Spread 1 1/2 cups cream cheese mixture on the bottom of a springform pan and arrange a layer of graham crackers on top. Spread another 1 1/2 cups cream cheese mixture and one more layer of graham crackers. Spread the remaining cream cheese mixture on top, making sure you have a smooth top. Cover the pan with plastic wrap, making sure it touches the top layer, and freeze until firm, about 2 hours.
Remove from the freezer and place in the refrigerator for about 6 hours to defrost but still remain firm.
Place the remaining graham crackers in a food processor and grind until you have fine crumbs. Using your hand mixer, whip the remaining 1 cup cream until stiff peaks form and add the cinnamon and the remaining 3 tablespoons sugar.
