"Remember the Ice Box Cake back in the 60's and 70's? The ones that used the Nabisco Chocolate Wafer Cookies? Well, this is the recipe to use when you can't find the cookies in the store! It seems a lot of stores are not carrying them anymore, and if you want them, you have to order them at Amazon.com. This recipe is courtesy of Ahmed1 at CDKitchen, and he had very good results using this recipe. NOTE: The preparation time does NOT include the 20-30 minutes in the refrigerator to chill. Keep in mind that the cooking time is 7-8 minutes PER BATCH. Enjoy!"

"I ended up adding an additional 1/2 cup of flour and the dough was still too soft to work with. As I was planning to crush these cookies for a cheesecake crust, this didn't bother me too much when they fell apart transferring them onto the cookie sheet. 400 degrees in a fan forced oven is too hot - they burnt around the edges, so the second batch went in at 350 and fared much better. They taste good."
"OUT OF THIS WORLD COOKIES!!!!! It is also the most GORGEOUS dough I have ever worked with...Loved it!
Made a couple of batches, no problem at all!!! Ice cream sandwiches, cookie crusts and cake! Yummy! Thank you so much!"
"Great cookies! I made them to use for a chocolate cheesecake crust and it was wonderful! Decided to make it again tonight... and being super tired, I mis-wrote the amount of milk... and I added 1.5*cups* uh-oh. I was going to throw it out, but my roommate said to just go with it, and i did!! I added 1 more cup of flour and 2 more ounces of melted chocolate and voila! yummy cake! (I made a couple cupcakes to taste it and no complaints other than it being a little fragile). i pressed it down flatter in in the pie pan because i still want to make my cheese cake, so here's to hoping it holds up well enough!!"
"Excellent! I made one small adjustment to the recipe...for time saving and clean up...Substituing 6 TBPS of European cocoa and 8 TBPS(4oz total for recipe) for the chocolate squares...they turned out perfect. Thin, crispy with a just a hint of sweet. I have over 40 recipe books, including ones just for chocolate- and had not found one that had this recipe. Thank you!!!!"
"Great for making the ice cream sandwiches!"
"These wafer cookies aren't supposed to be puffy, but are supposed to be kind of flat like the chocolate coating on a regular ice cream sandwich. This cookie recipe works great and we have enjoyed Recipe #329370 several times now that the hot weather is here using these for the cookies. Thank you!"
"i don't know what nabisco chocolate wafers are, but i was looking for something that resembled oreo wafers or thin mint wafers. the extra two tablespoons of flour i subbed with cocoa powder. the taste was right, the texture was a little puffier. i put them a little closer than 1/2" and they spread a little, that 1/2" really does count. also, i didn't have a circle cookie cutter, so after refrigeration i rolled them into balls and flattened them with the bottom of a cup. that first batch was a little too thick and didn't come out as crispy, so the second batch i flattened them with the palm of my hand to about 1/16" and they're still a little puffy. but taste is GREAT."
