This is such a very simple recipe which I remember my mom making when I was little.

It was a favorite of my big brothers, and I wished my mom made it more often.

Prepare it the day before you intend to serve it, and you can decorate it for Christmas with a little color on top.

Prep:

20 Min

Method:

No-Cook or Other

Ingredients

1 pkg
chocolate wafers
1 pt
heavy cream, whipped
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 Tbsp
sugar
6
maraschino cherries

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Whip the cream and stir in vanilla and sugar.
Line a loaf pan with foil or plastic wrap, enough to fold over and seal the contents while stored in the freezer overnight.
2
Place the first cooky on a flat surface covered with foil or plastic wrap (enough as described above), and top it with a spoonful of the cream. *Place another cooky on top of that, tapping gently to flatten the cream, and place another spoonful of cream on that cooky, continue from * until the length is enough to fit the loaf pan.
3
Begin a second row of cookies and cream and place this in line with the first row, making a double row, which should eventually fill the loaf pan.
Wrap the foil or plastic wrap to seal all. Place in the freezer.
4
On the day you plan to serve it,remove from loaf pan and place on a pretty plate,and decorate the top with cut cherries and green leaves made of mint jelly candies, and have prepared a good quality hot fudge sauce to pour over each serving.
