Mother Duck used to enjoy a certain dessert made from chocolate wafer cookies layered with whipped cream. You would then place the treat into the fridge for a few hours, allowing the cookies to soften, creating something akin to a chocolate cake. Unfortunately, the original Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers used in the recipe seem to be discontinued, so Mother Duck and I recently went about finding an alternative.
The first item presented to us when looking up alternatives online was the Reko Chocolate Pizzelle, an Italian waffle cookie. While these cookies did soften up just fine in the fridge, they became very spongy, so they weren’t a great substitution.
Our next attempt involved Oreo Thins. These tasted much better, though after a few hours, they were still a bit difficult to cut through. Waiting a full day, however, resulted in softer cookies that were easier to cut with a fork. Perhaps in the future, it might be better to separate the Oreo’s twin cookies in the hopes that even thinner cookies might soften faster. In the end, this recipe was quite tasty and might be worth trying yourself if you’d like an easy dessert that requires no baking. And since this was such a short post, we’ll be doing a little snack review this upcoming Friday!
