It Isn't Pretty...But It Sure Is Tasty

My cute Grandpa turned 80 last week...So of course, we had to celebrate! His favorite dessert is this chocolate wafer and cream cake, so I made it for the party. Now I admit that I am no gourmet cook, but this dessert turned out perfect. If I do say so myself. It is ridiculously easy to make, and trust me, everyone will rave about this delicious treat for days and days. 


This is the most important ingredient...Nabisco Chocolate Wafers. I've never tried this dessert with any other kind. Take my word for it, and stick with these. 
 And of course, you will need one quart of whipping cream.
 Whip your cream until it is light and fluffy. Add two tbsp. of vanilla extract and 1 cup of sugar into the cream just as it is finishing being whipped. 
 I used plastic bowls this time, but any small bowl will work. 
With a rubber spatula, spread a small amount of whipped cream onto the bottom of the bowl. This will act as the base for the dessert, and hold the wafers down. 
 Next, place one chocolate wafer on top of the whipped cream. 
 Add another small layer of whipped cream onto the wafer. 
 Grab two wafers, and with your rubber spatula, put whipped cream in between. Don't skimp on the whipped cream...the more, the better. 
 Continue adding cookies and whipped cream, in an alternating pattern. I usually use anywhere from 6-8 cookies in each dessert. 
 Then, flip the cookies on their sides, and place in the bowl, on top of the whipped cream and wafer.
 Once again with your rubber spatula, cover the entire dessert with whipped cream. Like I said earlier, don't skimp on the cream. 
 I told you that it isn't that pretty, but trust me, it is delicious!
 Cover each dessert with plastic wrap, and place in your refrigerator. Let them sit overnight. They will become chilled, and the wafers will soften up like a cookies and cream cake. 
 I topped mine with little flags with an 80 on them for the birthday party. They also look good with chocolate shavings on top of them. 
 Enjoy!
