Ingredients:

  • 1 box (9oz) Famous Chocolate Wafers. (Typically in the ice cream/toppings section)
  • 1 cup (8oz) Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Peppermint Extract (adjust according to taste preference)
  • Crushed peppermint candies for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

Add whipping cream, powdered sugar and peppermint extract to a bowl. Use an electric mixer (use the whisk attachment) to beat on high speed until stiff peaks form, about 2-3 minutes.

Spoon 3/4 of a teaspoon of whipping cream on Famous Chocolate Wafers, press another cookie on top. Continue doing this until your cakes are 5 cookies tall.

Add whipping cream and crushed peppermint candies to the top of cake to garnish.

Place cakes onto a serving tray and refrigerate overnight. You want to place them on the serving tray immediately since cakes will soften and might become difficult to move. Makes 8-9 mini cakes.
