  1. Dab 1/2 teaspoon whipped cream on each wafer. Stack wafers together on a serving plate to make a log 14 inches long. Frost log with remaining whipped cream. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze 4 to 6 hours. Let thaw in refrigerator for one hour. To serve, slice at a 45 degree angle for the full zebra stripe effect.

So yummy! For Valentine's Day one year, I seperated half the whipped cream and mixed in some raspberry preserves to one half. I used the raspberry portion to spread between the wafers to make the cake part. (Made 2 side by side logs instead of one long one) Then I covered the entire "cake" with the plain whipped cream and garnished with fresh raspberries and chocolate sprinkles on top. It was quite a hit with my boyfriend. I have also used strawberry preserves as well.


This was an incredibly easy dessert and is yummy too! Be sure to make it ahead and chill; it gets better the longer it sits in the fridge and the cookies soak up the cream. If you make the log shape, it helps to cut on a sharp angle, the slices look much better. Just before serving I added sliced strawberries and chocolate shavings. A dusting of cocoa powder would be pretty too!


This recipe and a picture is on the box of Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers. Add 1 tsp. vanilla to the whipped cream. Thanks for the suggestion to serve with strawberries. Delicious.
