Old School Chocolate Wafer Log

Old School Chocolate Wafer Log

My mom used to made this years ago and I thought she was a genius for it. But when I went to make it the first time myself, I realized the recipe was right there on the wafer box.

And though she’s still a genius, I think mine is a little better because I add Bailey’s to the whipping cream and sliced almonds and shaved chocolate to the top.


Serves 6-ish

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pint whipping cream
  • 2-3 tablespoons Bailey's Irish Cream
  • 1 box Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • Chocolate for shaving

DIRECTIONS

  1. Put cream & Bailey's in a mixer and beat until stiff, yeah I said that
  2. Spread some of the whipped cream on a serving plate as a base to hold the wafers
  3. Spread a layer of cream on one side of a wafer, stack another wafer on top, add cream, another wafer and so on until all the wafers are used
  4. Lay the wafer stack on it's side on the plate, and fully cover with remaining cream
  5. Cover loosely with saran and refrigerate overnight
  6. Remove from fridge, and top with almonds and shaved chocolate
  7. Now this part is critical: cut the log on a diagonal to expose the wafer & cream layers
