Notes

Adapted from Magnolia's famous Chocolate Wafer Icebox Cake - otherwise known as the cake on the box of Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers.

My version (shown in the picture) used 4 cups of heavy whipping cream instead of 3 cups, which threw off the balance of the chocolate and cream. If I were to do it again, I would stick to 3 cups as below...

VARIATIONS:

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

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