chocolate wafer icebox cake

Nabisco's Famous Chocolate Wafers and fresh whipped cream. The hardest part about making this cake is finding the chocolate wafers.

 

INGREDIENTS

3 cups heavy cream

4 Tablespoons sugar

1 Tablespoon vanilla extract

2 (9-ounce) packages chocolate wafer cookies

1 sprig fresh mint

2 Tablespoons scraped milk chocolate

 

DIRECTIONS

1. In a large bowl, beat cream, sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form.

 

2. On a flat serving plate, arrange 7 cookies side by side in a circle, keeping 1 cookie in the center.

 

3. Spread with 1/2 cup whipped cream, making a 7-inch circle. Repeat with remaining cookies and cream, making 11 layers of cookies and ending with a layer of cream. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

 

4. Before serving, scrape milk chocolate on top and garnish with fresh mint. Cut cake into wedges and serve.

 

Approximately 8 servings.

 

VARIATIONS

Add flavorings (peppermint, orange, almond, etc.) to the whipped cream.

Dust top with cocoa powder, crumbled oreos or crumbled left-over chocolate wafers.
