I had a sudden urge to eat chocolate, and this recipe was excellent! You can almost always find the ingredients in the pantry, so it is a delicious, convenient, snack!!
This is just what I was looking for. Years ago my mother made a dessert with chocolate wafers and whip cream layered and then sliced diagonally. You no longer can buy the wafers. I wanted to make pilgrim hat favors using the wafers and small chocolate peanutbutter cups. The wafers from this recipe worked perfectly. Thanks. Now I may even make my mom's old recipe again for Christmas.
