chocolate roll.

Chocolate Roll from Brittany:

4 cups real whipping cream (I prefer heavy, but regular works too)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp peppermint extract
1 cup powdered sugar
1 package Famous Chocolate Wafer Cookies (hard to find but King Soopers has them locally)

Beat cream, sugar and vanilla with mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form (more than you would typically beat the whip cream). Stir in peppermint extract to taste.

Spread a layer of whipped cream on the bottom of serving platter. It should be thick enough that the wafer can stand on its own. Spread whipped cream onto wafer cookie and top with another cookie making a sandwich. Place cookies on serving dish using the whipped cream layer that was spread to anchor them. Continue to layer whipped cream and cookies until all wafer cookies have been used. I squeeze the cookies pretty close together so some cream oozes out the top. Once all the cookies have been places spread additional cream over and around the chocolate log. Place in fridge for at least 4 hours. Garnish with chocolate shavings or crushed peppermint right before serving. Slice on the diagonal to see all the layers of cookie.
