Fab Frugal Friday: Last Minute Valentine Recipe Chocolate Peppermint Mousse Stacks

If you haven’t discovered Nabisco’s Famous Chocolate Wafers, you’re missing out on a wonderful frugal shortcut that will turn you into an instant Dessert Diva. Look no farther for a last-minute cinchy dessert that will make your Valentine think you slaved for hours!!!

The wafers are thin, crispy dark chocolate discs that are not overly sweet and can be used so many ways. I often crush them and mix them with melted butter and a little sugar and then press the mixture into a crust, and there are lots more ways to use them – see above photo! Keep these wafers in your fab frugal pantry to whip up an amazing effortless dessert anytime!


8 ounces light cream cheese, softened
12 to 15 round peppermint swirl red and white candies, finely crushed
2 cups whipped cream or non-dairy whipped topping
18 Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers
A little dark chocolate for shaving

Stir together the cream cheese and crushed peppermint candies. Fold in the whipped cream.

Spread 1 heaping tablespoon of peppermint mixture on a chocolate wafer. Repeat two times, forming a stack of three wafers and mousse. Chill for at least 30 minutes, so that the wafers will soften.

Serve with a dollop of mousse on top and chocolate shavings scattered on top as a garnish.
