This super simple recipes is easy enough for beginning cooks to make. It is so simple and so good! Make sure you chill it for at least four hours in the refrigerator so the cookies soften. For an all-chocolate version, see Chocolate Chocolate Icebox Dessert. Be sure to look at my step by step instructions before you begin. Yum.


  • 1 package plain chocolate wafers (Famous Wafers), about 40
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Steps to Make It

Beat together the cream, powdered sugar and vanilla in a large bowl until stiff.

Spread a strip of whipped cream down the center of a serving plate to put the cookies on. Spread a generous spoonful of the whipped cream mixture on each cookie and stack them on their sides on the whipped cream on the plate to make a long log.

You'll need to judge the number of cookies to use. When about 1/3 of the cream is left, stop adding cookies and start frosting the outside of the cookie log.

When the cookies are frosted and stacked, cover the entire log with more whipped cream thickly and thoroughly. Be sure to get all the way around the sides of the cookies with the cream. Cover the roll and chill in the refrigerator for at least eight hours. Slice on a diagonal to serve to make sure you get cookies and cream in every slice..
