    This is my Mom's birthday cake, except she uses the original Nabisco chocolate wafers recipe, without mint or chocolate chips. Sometimes we sprinkle the top with chocolate shavings for a similar, less crunchy effect. I prefer it a bit sweeter by using Cool Whip instead of real cream. We also make it much simpler, by making one long stack, alternating wafer and whipped cream, and then slice it at an angle for the same lined effect. Sometimes these wafers are with ice cream cones in the store.

    I have made this cookie over the years which was always a family favourite and now the grandkids love it. At Christmas Time, I give it a few food colour drops of green and make an extra large one in the shape of a Candy Cane. I then drizzle it with chocolate and candy cane broken up and sprinkled on top. Everyone loves it.

    My mom made this all the time growing up and it is so simple and good. Never had the mint or chips added, but that sounds like it would change it up a bit and sounds great.

    There should be a recipe right on the box of the Nabisco Famous Cohocolate Wafers. Online it is at http://www.nabiscoworld.com/recipes/recipe.aspx?recipe_id=53331

    Google Nabisco Famous chocolate wafers. We never used mint or the chocolate chips on top.

    These instructions are very badly written. The 'stacks' should be vertical not horizontal. What are 'chocolate wafers?' Chocolate biscuits or chocolate covered after dinner mint type things. Luckily I know how to make this or I would be very confused. I have used ginger biscuits and dipped them in coffee before smothering them in cream.

    Delicious. I made a double recipe, so it ended up being a square cake (about the size of a double layer cake) instead of a roll. Everyone was impressed and it was really easy.

    Do you freeze this? It looks to die for and I want to try it, but I don't want to mess it up. Reading that you're supposed to be able to cut it, but it's made of whipped cream is what is confusing me... will someone that has made it please help!
