Just a Little Taste

My husband's birthday is the first week in January.  
We are usually feeling a little "full" food-wise this time of year.  
We have spent the last few weeks finishing off holiday leftovers
 and eating every last cookie, piece of peppermint bark and bag of 
candy that found their way into our house over the holidays. 
 And now-it's time for cake!  
I thought the traditional log version of an
  old-fashioned ice box cake would be the perfect solution.
It's fun for the kids to make, super tasty, and small enough that there 
wouldn't be any left to tempt us to continue eating the next day.

  • 1 package Nabisco chocolate wafers
  • 1 pint heavy whipping crew
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2-3 tbsp. powdered sugar

Whip together the heavy cream, vanilla and powdered sugar 
with an electric mixer to make a heavy whipped cream.  
Cover the top of each chocolate wafer with the 
whipped cream and then stack sideways to form a log.  
Cover the whole log with the remaining whipped cream
 and refrigerate overnight (or at least 5-6 hours).

  1. I love this dessert. It's a favorite with our extended family and my my beloved aunt who passed this year. We always had it for her January birthday.
