      I've noticed that in some recipes calling for chocolate crumb crust that some cooks are confusing the little waffle wafers with creme in the middle for recipes that call for chocolate wafers. These are not oreo's either. They are Nabisco Famous chocolate wafers and have no icing or filling. They are usually on the top shelf out of the way of faster sellers! (my market) These "wafer" cookies are dark chocolate and make a wonderful crust for cheesecakes and other desserts with a chocolate crust.

      I made this for Easter last year. My Aunt who claims to not like cheesecake ate two pieces! It was a hit. I was requested to make this again for Thanksgiving, but this time I have to make two. I changed the topping a little. I found using the heavy cream in the topping left the topping extremely stiff. I used sweetened condenced milk instead and it gave it a smooth almost fondont like apearance and was very easy to cut; and tasted great. I put sliced strawberries and whipped cream on top. Thank you for a keeper.
