My family has been making this dessert for over 80 years. It was first introduced by Nabisco in 1929 as "Chocolate Wafer Icebox Cake". My mom, now almost 90, remembers her mother serving this to her when she was a child.

As the wafers sit overnight, they become cake-like and incredibly delicious! Combined with real, hand-whipped whipping cream, it's comfort food at its finest! So creamy, good and satisfying! Perfect with a hot cup of coffee after a great meal... and so easy!
