I offered to bring dessert to the Lammas celebration tonight. Since I'm a little short on time for cooking because we have a wedding coming up next week (our son), it had to be easy. And for a change, I didn't want to think about nutrition -- I mean, it's dessert! So after not making this chocolate wafer log for 20 years or more, I've made it twice in the last nine days. The first go-round I had helpers and we followed the recipe on the package but this time I added two tablespoons of sugar. And grated Hershey chocolate bar on top. Ridiculously easy, fun to make, and good.
Chocolate Wafer Log: Whip 2 cups whipping cream, adding 2 T. sugar and 1 t. vanilla extract, until soft peaks form. Put 1/2 T. whipped cream on each chocolate wafer making stacks. Use the entire 9 oz. package of chocolate wafers, and then arrange on a platter in whatever shape you'd like. Grate and sprinkle chocolate bar on top. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4-6 hours. Slice on the diagonal if you make a log shape.
Happy weekending and thanks for visiting here. xo
