This was a favorite with my children when they were growing up. The recipe is on the box of chocolate cookies, but I changed it slightly.

1 pint heavy whipping cream

¼ cup confectioners' sugar
2 t pure vanilla extract
1 box (9 oz) chocolate wafer cookies
Chocolate bar, slightly more than room temperature.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk, whip the cream until medium peaks form.
Add the sugar and vanilla and whip until firm peaks form.
Using a spatula, scoop about 1 tablespoon of whipped cream onto one side of each cookie.
Stack them on their sides and line them up on a platter. You should have 5 to six per row.
Now start spreading the whipped cream on the sides and then the top of the cookies.
Cover gently with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 6 hours. This gives the cookies time to soften to a cake-like texture.

Remove from refrigerator and using a potato peeler, peel a little chocolate for the top of the cake.
Slice cake diagonally and enjoy!
