I am constantly amazed at how animated and talkative people get when you mention food. The mere aroma of certain foods can evoke memories that transport us back to a special place and time. Food can bridge the gap between all ages, races and ethnicities.
Let's face it, the only thing that should ever come between people is a table and some serving bowls.

Another Blast From The Past

Here is another blast from the past; do you remember Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers? I hadn’t until our family kept reminiscing about things we use to make and eat years ago. It seems like all the recipes we grew up with as kids came from the back of a box or package of something. As we were talking we were remembering how much we enjoyed these recipes and wondered why we ever stopped making them. Most of these recipes were quite easy and affordable; I guess like with everything else things just get away from us. Maybe it is time to start making these recipes again and recreating some of those special times.

Famous Chocolate Refrigerator Roll

This chocolate cookie roll is frosted with whipped cream and may be made ahead of time and kept in freezer, just thaw about 30 minutes before serving.

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups heavy cream, whipped, or 1 (8-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (9-ounce) package NABISCO Famous Chocolate Wafers
Chocolate curls, for garnish

1. Stir vanilla into whipped cream or topping.
2. Spread 1/2 tablespoon whipped cream or topping on each wafer. Begin stacking wafers together and stand on edge on serving platter to make a 14-inch log.
3. Frost with remaining whipped cream or topping. Chill for 4 to 6 hours. To serve, garnish with chocolate curls; slice roll at an angle.
