Icebox cake in a pan and on a plate.
The Way To Fill Your Icebox Cake Void Now That Nabisco Chocolate Wafers Are No More
Nabisco's Chocolate Wafers is a common element seen across most traditional icebox cake recipes. Nabisco is no longer making them, but bakers can use similar products.
You can make your chocolate cookies for a 100% homemade icebox cake. You'll need all-purpose flour, butter, sugar, cocoa powder, egg white, sea salt, and vanilla extract.
After you mix the dough together, you have to freeze it, cut it into rounds (or whatever shape you desire), and bake them at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 12 to 14 minutes.
Other cookies can also substitute for Nabisco's wafers, such as Tate's chocolate cook cookies, which meld well with whipped cream and become cakey without turning to mush.
You can also buy Oreo cookies without the cream, or brownie crisp cookies from Dewey's Bakery, which evoke a brownie's crunchy edges, making them perfect for your icebox cake.
Goya's Chocolate Maria Cookies are crunchy little rounds that go great with an icebox cake recipe. All of these cookies will blend into the cake while maintaining their texture.
