White Chocolate Famous Wafer Dessert

For a simple dessert with a stunning presentation one should try a Famous Wafer Dessert. The Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers are a top shelf item in your grocery store cookie isle, up there with the Lorna Doones. Sometimes the wafers can be found with the ice cream cones and toppings too.


The dessert recipe on the side of the box is a simple whipped cream spread thinly over each cookie, pressed together, and laid out on a platter like a log. But I was in the mood for raspberries and…


White chocolate, lots of it.


This is a neat dessert to play with as one can come up with any flavor combination desired. But I felt raspberries and white chocolate were in order.

Famous Wafer Dessert
one box Famous Chocolate Wafers
2 1/2 cups whipping cream
1 T. Chambord raspberry liquor
3-4 ounces grated white chocolate, divided- I use Callebaut
one small container Fresh Raspberries

In a large mixing bowl whip cream until very thick, almost stiff. Fold in 2 ounces grated white chocolate and Chambord. Spread a small amount of cream on each wafer pressing them together forming a long log on a pretty platter. Frost the log with the remaining cream and sprinkle with the remaining grated white chocolate. Decorate with raspberries. Chill 4-6 hours covered. Cut in one inch slices on a 45 degree angle. Serves 8.


Here it is all sliced and ready to be served. This is a lovely dessert.

    yet another wonderful, yet easy recipe. Unfortunately one I can't make since there is no way I'll find those cookies in France. That said, it may be fortunate for my waistline.

    Thanks for all of your great ideas.

    I have a hard time finding those cookies too – and I'm not in France! I usually keep my eyes peeled for them since I think there's one store in my area that carries them. I like to stock up because they also make fantastic pie crusts.

    Would you believe I posted an icebox cake just yesterday? Great minds, I'll tell ya. I love your flavor combinations. Sounds wonderful.

    I couldn't find the wafers here so I made my own. It was really easy, so I'll definitely be making it again really soon. And probably really often!

    I love your deserts, the problem is I would be mostly the one eating them in my house.

    BUT, I will save this when I am going to a party or something, so I don't pig out on the whole thing!

    I love your pictures Robin, they turned out great!

    All I can say is WOW! That's a show stopper dessert if I've ever seen one, and, um, pretty sure that would be insulin worthy!
