Chocolate Wafer Dessert

This is a delicious dessert that was very popular in the 1960s.  My mom, sister and I would often make this chocolate wafer dessert when we were having company over for a holiday meal.  Besides being delicious, this dessert requires no baking so it won’t heat up your kitchen.  It’s perfect if you are having people over because you can make it ahead and it can be chilling in the fridge while you’re cooking the rest of the meal and eating.  Once you see how easy it is I’m thinking you’ll make it more than once this summer!  There are also a couple of variations you can make, or you can just use your imagination!

2 cups whipping cream

1 package of Famous Chocolate Wafers

1/4 cup of powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla


Add the sugar and vanilla to the whipping cream

Beat the whipped cream mixture on high speed until stiff peaks form.

Set aside 1 cup of the whipped cream mixture.

Spread the whipped cream mixture onto the wafers five at a time.

When this is done lay the stacks of five on their sides on a platter to form a “loaf.”

Use the reserved whipped cream to frost this “loaf.”

Chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours.

The wafers will soak up the cream and will be easy to slice.  Be sure to slice diagonally when you’re ready to serve.  You can serve it just like this or you can drizzle it with chocolate sauce.

This dessert can be made in the shape of a more traditional cake and it would be cut and served that way. Stacks of five wafers frosted with whipped cream can be individual desserts if that is your preference. That option is super easy. This type of dessert is sometimes called an icebox cake. Give this delicious no-bake Chocolate Wafer Dessert a try!  Your holiday guests will love it!
