    Looking for a recipe using chocolate wafers

    Many, many years ago I made a dessert with Nabisco chocolate wafers and a mocha cream. The wafers were placed in a loaf pan (I'm assuming) vertically to create vertical layers. I tried it because the idea intrigued me. I remember I really liked it. The cream softened the wafers. My sister borrowed the recipe. We've both lost it. It would be wonderful if someone had it and could share it.[/b]

    Thank you very much. I have googled many times and have seen the many replies, looked at them but they are not it. I believe this recipe came from an old magazine .... probably Family Circle or Woman's Day. I do thank each of you for trying to help me. I could possibly use one of the mocha cream recipes and go from there. Hopefully I can remember how to place those wafers. They were definitely placed vertically. Aleida

    The original recipe used sweetened whipped cream, I'm sure you can substitute any mocha flavored whipped cream in the cake if that is your preference.

    Here is the original recipe (the sugar is my addition) from the bottom of the "Famous Chocolate Wafer" box:

    2 cups heavy (whipping) cream
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 tablespoons sugar (optional, not in original recipe)
    1 package Nabisco® Famous Chocolate Wafers (9 ounces)

    In a large bowl, start whipping the cream.
    Add the sugar and vanilla and continue whipping until stiff peaks form.
    Spread 1/2 Tablespoon whipped cream on each wafer, stacking the wafers together, then stand the stacked wafers on edge on a long serving platter to make a 14-inch log.

    Frost the log with the remaining whipped cream. Refrigerate for 4-6 hours. Slice at a 45┬░ angle so that each serving shows the chocolate and white layers.

    You can freeze the cake for up to 2 months, covered tightly with plastic wrap; thaw in the refrigerator for 1 hour before serving.

    Mocha Whipped Cream:

    1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    3 - 4 tablespoons (35-50 grams) granulated white sugar, or to taste
    2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (regular or Dutch processed)
    1 teaspoon instant coffee powder or espresso powder
    1 cup (240 ml) cold heavy whipping cream

    Place your mixing bowl and wire whisk in the freezer for about 15-30 minutes. Place the vanilla extract, 3 tablespoons of sugar, cocoa powder, and instant coffee powder in the cold bowl. Stir in about 2 tablespoons of the cream to form a thick paste (this will dissolve the cocoa and coffee powder). Then add the rest of the cream and beat just until stiff peaks form. If not using immediately, cover and refrigerate. Makes about 2 cups (480 ml) whipped cream.

    I just found this other recipe with these pictures that seem to be your description of the loaf chocolate wafer cake:





    And here is the recipe:

    CHOCOLATE WAFER CAKE - LAURIE LOVES RECIPE & PICTURES
    http://www.laurieloves.com/2013/02/chocolate-wafer-cake.html

    "Chocolate Wafer Cake was a family childhood favourite dessert.
    This is the EASIEST dessert ever and it ALWAYS gets great reviews!."

    It starts with only 4 ingredients:
    1/4 cup sugar, 2 cups whipping cream, 1 teaspoon vanilla,1 package of chocolate wafers.

    Beat whipping cream and add sugar and vanilla. Whipped cream should be firm but do not over beat as it will turn to butter.
    Spread wafer with whipped cream and layer with another wafer. Repeat and after 6 wafers, place on a plate and then add another stack of 6 wafers until the package is done. Your cake should look like the picture.
    Spread remaining whipped cream over the top and sides.
    Refrigerate for 4-6 hours. This allows the wafers to soften and changes the texture to be cake-like.
    Slice the cake on the diagonal and serve. Everyone will love it!.

    A few VARIATIONS:
    Add coffee to the whipped cream for a coffee mocha wafer cake.
    Add mint flavouring and green food colouring for a chocolate mint cake.
    Add any food colouring to coordinate with the season!.
    I have also made individual wafer cakes for a girlfriend's birthday party.

    Hi Pinky.. I am sorry. The truth is it has been a long time and with these wonderful looking recipes I am starting to have doubts about my memory. I do definitely remember it was mocha cream and that the wafers were vertical. I do not remember that I had to cut the loaf/log on a slant to see the layers. However I thought I had a memory happening when I read how the wafers were piled up and then laid down as a log. For sure I am confused. And I thank you so much for your help. I will be picking a mocha cream and trying something. Aleida

    U R welcome Aleida, and thanks for your prompt response. icon_biggrin.gif

    All these cake recipes are basically the same but the only difference is the way in what you place the chocolate wafer cookies: vertically for a log cake, or horizontally; and also in what way you cut the wafers: diagonally or straight.

    I also found this other similar cake with the chocolate wafer cookies placed in a circle and here are the picture and the recipe:



    ICEBOX CAKE - SMITTEN KITCHEN RECIPE & PICTURE -
    Adapted from The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook
    Ingredients:
    3 cups heavy cream
    3 tablespoons sugar
    1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    2 (9-ounce) packages chocolate wafer cookies [or, make your own!]
    Unsweetened cocoa (or chocolate shavings)
    Directions:
    In a large bowl, beat cream, sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form.
    On a flat serving plate, arrange 7 cookies side by side in a circle, keeping 1 cookie in the center.
    Spread with 1/2 cup whipped cream, making a 7-inch circle. Repeat with remaining cookies and cream, making 11 layers of cookies and ending with a layer of cream (there will be a few cookies left over). Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
    To serve, dust top lightly with cocoa powder or chocolate shavings.

    You can make this cake with mocha cream instead of mint:

    This old-fashioned no-bake cake has just three components: store-bought cookies, homemade mint whipped cream, and chocolate chips.
