Head on over to Julia's at Hooked on Housesand see her treasure hunt with her Friday blog party! http://hookedonhouses.net/ It is fun and easy!!
Speaking of "Hooked on"-my family is hooked. ...I made something for the Back to School dinner that I have not made in YEARS! In fact, I don't think my youngest ever had it. It is called Icebox Cake in our house because my grandmother (we called her GG when she had greatgrandchildren) did have an icebox in her apartment in the city and continued to call her refrigerator the same. She made the cake, then my mom and now I finally did! It is easy to make, but I think we stopped making it when the chocolate cookies were hard to find and became expensive-grandma, mom and now me-ever frugal.
Here's what you need-
Plain Chocolate wafer cookies (they are round-used to be square)
Heavy cream for whipping
sugar (or Splenda)
chocolate curls, grated chocolate or wafer for top-(pretty it up!)
Why didn't I pull out one of mu pretty plates? Because they were hovering over me to cut it already! So I did!
