Chocolate Chip Cookie Icebox Cake- 6th Birthday

So normally I post what I have done.  But this is a plan.  My son thinks he likes cake, but yet his pieces of cake go virtually untouched.  One day he is going to grow up just a bit more and realize no matter how exciting cake is, he doesn't like it.  What he does love is chocolate chip cookies, so I'm hoping to make this for his birthday next year.  Yeah I'm planning like eight months in advance. Its from Martha Stewart's July 2011 issue.  Its a Chocolate Chip Cookie Icebox Cake.   
Can you believe I couldn't find a picture of it anywhere online?  So this is snapshot of the magazine.  I did find this blog that changed the recipe slightly, seems very useful. I'll have to try it earlier than 8 months from now.

Also, speaking of icebox cakes, I've always wanted to try this one. But it calls for Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafer cookies, and considering they are hard to find in a B&M stores, and amazon makes you buy in bulk they are a little pricey and I've never thought my husband would appreciate $53 charge from Amazon for cookie to make a cake.   But then my mom came up with a great idea when I was talking to her about icebox cakes, use chocolate graham crackers, sure it would look different, and might taste different but I don't know what it tastes like anyway.  Although maybe they would go totally soggy.  I don't know, I'll have to try.

  1. I wonder if you could make the chocolate wafers! I like to make oreos out of chocolate cake mix just add eggs and make them into cookies, you might be able to tweek the recipe to make them thinner so they look wafery. Or just make wafers with a wafer recipe! I think the cake would be fabulous!!!
