As Ice Box as it is going to get!!!

I had never heard of an Ice Box Cake and the process certainly was intriguing!  I didn't really follow any set recipe and I didn't exactly use cookies either.  During our last vacation, Neil and I went to a Russian grocery store.  They had these thin wafers packaged together. about 10 all together, and so we bought some with the intent on figuring out how exactly it was used in their recipes.  Well, I haven't figured that part out yet but we did have success with using it in our version of the Ice Box Cake.


These are the wafer layers.... if you have any idea how they are supposed to be used please do tell!
My layers were homemade whipped cream with cream cheese, and chocolate ganache.


I "iced" the cake with the cream cheese and whipped cream mixture then sprinkled on mini chocolate chips.
We were too impatient to let it set over night, but we did wait a good eight hours!  Turned out to be super yummy!

I love those wafers! I've seen them used to make a cake with thin chocolate and nuttela-ish layers.

Wow! I have 2 Russian stores by where I buy bread and cold meats. I had seen these waffles but didn't how to use them.
This now leads me to do some research.

Thanks.
