Sunday's are Chocolate

Happy Happy Easter when I think of Easter I think of chocolate and having a new dress and bonnet and remembering why we celebrate this beautiful Holiday. Sometimes I think of Annelle from Steel Magnolias putting all of the colored eggs in the trunk of her car. Or attending my first Passover in Hawaii that was an experience to remember. We will be having a low key Easter since all of the kids are out of town. I made these Chocolate Wafers Stack cookies a few days ago. They were very easy to make. I already had a few left over cookies from the Spearmint Torte I made a few weeks ago. If I were to make this again I would cut back on the amount of orange juice concentrate to about a quarter of a cup. They sit in the fridge for 6 hours you can cut with a fork very easily. Each bit has a chocolate and orange flavor together. Hubby consumed a couple in no time.

Chocolate Wafer Stack Cookies

1 cup chilled heavy whipping cream
2/3 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, partially thawed
40 chocolate wafer cookies
Finely grated orange peel

Beat whipping cream with electric mixer until stiff peaks form add orange juice until peaks form.
Place eight cookies on shallow baking sheet, spacing apart. Spoon 1 tablespoon of whipped orange cream on top of each cookie, top each cookie with a second cookie and another tablespoon of orange cream. Repeat 2 more time with cookies and cream, creating 8 stacks of four cookies.
Top each stack with a fifth cookie. Chill tray for at least 6 hours.
Very carefully transfer 1 stack to a small plate. Whisk left over orange cream. Spoon dollop of orange cream atop each stack, sprinkle with grated orange peel, and serve quickly.
