When my husband and I were out shopping in Amish country yesterday, I picked up something that I haven’t bought for years.
Chocolate wafers. They’re in the bulk section of the grocery store we visited.
And then I came home, decided to hell with the diet, and made these.
I used frozen yogurt rather than ice cream, hoping that would help in the battle against too many calories.
I used to make these all the time when our boys were young. I’d fill them with Breyer’s vanilla ice cream, and for special occasions I’d use their favorite: chocolate chip mint.
Or was that my favorite?
My memory plays tricks with me sometimes.
They’re darn good with Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia Fro-Yo, too.
And they’re extremely simple to make. If you can’t find chocolate wafers, Keebler chocolate graham crackers work just fine.
I always smooth out the edges because I’m such a suzy homemaker.
They’re best eaten a day or two after making them. That way, the ice cream seeps ever so gently into the wafer, making it the perfect texture for biting into.
Is there a simple treat that you like to make?
Until tomorrow, then . . .
