    Thank you Martha!! It was a co-worker's birthday today and I am on a job currently that provides housing...with a kitchenette...This was an amazingly satisfying and sweet recipe that looked and tasted great! My only substitution was that NO store nearby had the chocolate wafer cookies so instead I bought a package of "America's Favorite Cookie" and opened each one and scraped the creme filling out, which worked just fine with a different layering layout.

    This is a twist on the classic Icebox Cake recipe that has often been on the Nabisco chocolate wafers box. Something magical happens when this sets in the fridge overnight... it stops being cookies with cream and becomes a soft, delicious cake! Its the perfect summer dessert. The ways to flavor the whipped cream are endless, too!

    I don't think I whipped the cream enough and it looked a little "drippy" so I made mine in a trifle bowl and it was beautiful and delicious.
