That Famous Chocolate Icebox Cake Recipe
2-3 packages of Famous Chocolate Wafers
3 cups heavy whipping cream
1 Tablespoon vanilla
3 tablespoons of powdered sugar
Beat the cream with the sugar and vanilla until soft peaks form.
On a serving plate, arrange seven cookies in a circle, with one in the center. Spread the cookies with half a cup of the whipped cream. Don’t be like me and spread it too far out to the edges, it should be at least a quarter inch thick between the layers. Repeat until you get to about four or five inches high, finishing with a layer of cream. Do a little decorative stack on the top if you like.
Cover with plastic wrap (I used my cake dome) and refrigerate for at least four to six hours. Dust with cocoa powder or top with chocolate shavings before serving.
Serves about 8-10.
***Don’t let whipped cream get toooo soft… or it absorbs too much into the cookies and gets too mushy.
