Chocolate Cream Dessert Recipe

Chocolate Cream Dessert Recipe

Since the 1960's, whenever I've asked my family what dessert I should fix, this is what they've requested. It has a light texture and also a tempting pale chocolate color and is not overly sweet. It's a delightful treat.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + cooling YIELD:12-16 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 cups crushed vanilla wafers (about 90 wafers)
  • 2/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • FILLING:
  • 1 milk chocolate candy bar (7 ounces), plain or with almonds, broken into pieces
  • 1 package (10 ounces) large marshmallows
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Sliced almonds, toasted, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the vanilla crumbs, butter, sugar and cinnamon. Set aside 1/3 cup for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. pan; refrigerate until firm.
  • 2. In a large saucepan, heat the candy bar, marshmallows and milk over medium-low heat until chocolate and marshmallows are melted, stirring often. Remove from the heat; cool to room temperature.
  • 3. Fold in whipped cream and vanilla; pour over crust. Chill for 3-4 hours. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture and almonds if desired. Yield: 12-16 servings.
