Ingredients
  1. 1 (6.8 oz) Symphony bar by Hershey’s (contains almonds and toffee chips)
  2. Regular Cool Whip – 8 oz
  3. Chocolate cookie pie crust
Instructions
  1. Let Cool Whip come just to room temperature (not too cold or warm).
  2. Melt Symphony bar on 50% power in the microwave for about 90 seconds.
  3. Let melted chocolate cool to room temperature and then fold into the Cool Whip.
  4. Pour into the pie crust and chill until cold.
Notes
  1. Pro shopping tip: This size Symphony bar is also called “giant” and Wal-Mart has them on their candy aisle next to the normal Hershey’s bars.
  2. Pro prep tip: The most important part of this recipe is getting the temperatures of both the Cool Whip and the melted chocolate as close to room temperature as possible before mixing; if too cold, the chocolate won’t blend evenly; if too hot, the Cool Whip will melt.

Ingredients
  1. "Famous" Chocolate Wafers (Nabisco, 9 oz.)
  2. 2 cups heavy whipping cream
Instructions
  1. Whip the cream on high with a mixer until it forms a stiff peak.
  2. Make layers by spreading whipped cream between cookies and lay in a row on their sides on a cookie sheet or long dish.
  3. At the end, ice with remaining whipped cream.
  4. Decorate the top with cookie crumbs.
  5. Place 4-5 toothpicks across the top of the cake, cover loosely cover with plastic wrap and set in the refrigerator overnight.
  6. To serve, cut slices diagonally across the cake so the chocolate "stripes" show.
Notes
  1. Pro shopping tip: Nabisco Chocolate Wafers may be in the cookie section of your grocery store (probably on the top shelf) or near the chocolate syrup for ice cream.
  2. Pro prep tip: The layering is easier if you make “sandwiches” of 4-5 cookies, lay them next to each other, and then connect with more whipped cream.
  3. Pro prep tip: Cover and chill any extra whipped cream to “touch up” the cake before serving.
