Nilla Wafer Treats

The neighborhood I live in has an annual fall chili cook-off.  We gather around on a September evening anxiously awaiting our chance to try many crockpots full of tasty concoctions.  After some very serious taste testing a winner is crowned.  This year I was out of town for a few days before the cook-off.  I literally got back in town one hour before the gathering.  I knew I couldn't show up empty handed...so these lovely little treats were born.  They are a lot like my Mini Cannolis that I made a few months ago.  However, they are a little simpler but just as tasty.  They would be great for any gathering, school party, or birthday treat.   Let your creativity run wild with different combinations of frosting and sprinkles!!

(printable recipe)

Makes approx. 60 - 70 treats

2 boxes Nilla Wafers
1 pkg. vanilla almond bark (or white chocolate, melted)
1 can vanilla (or flavor of your choice) cake frosting
sprinkles
powdered sugar
wax paper
 
Spread frosting onto one wafer and top with another creating a mini sandwich

Melt almond bark or chocolate in microwave in 30 second increments until smooth.  Dip wafers in melted bark or chocolate.

Dip in sprinkles and lay on wax paper to cool.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Serve immediately or store in a covered container after set.
 
My girls even talked me into making more and selling them at a lemonade/treat stand.  What a great way to celebrate a beautiful fall day.

  1. So glad I found this recipe! A bloggy friend and I exchanged some biscuits/cookies a while ago {diff countries} and I had no idea how I want to use my precious box she sent.

    1. Thanks, Winnie. The Nilla wafers are a simple vanilla cookie found here in the US. Could be made with any cookie.
