Chocolate Wafer Rolls refer to a dessert made of chocolate wafers and sweetened whipped cream. Generally, crunchy and crispy rolled wafers are filled with chocolate cream and covered with delicious dark chocolate. It is rich in aroma and flavour and goes down well with kids and adults alike. There is a good balance of flavours which makes it suitable as a standalone snack, but it may also be used to make other innovative desserts.

Chocolate wafer rolls can be easily prepared at home. Start by spreading whipped cream on chocolate wafers and stacking the creamed wafers one atop the other into a 14-inch (approx.) tower. Lay the stack carefully on its side on a serving platter to make a log. Cut diagonally into slices and garnish with chocolate shavings before serving.

By-products of chocolate wafer roll include:
Crushed chocolate wafer roll: The biscuits are crushed either with hand or by placing them in a cloth and pounding them with a hammer for a few seconds. The latter procedure tends to impart a finer crushed product than the former.
Powdered chocolate wafer roll: You may powder the biscuits in a dry grinder or by placing them between cloth or plastic sheets and pounding them with a hammer. They may be powdered fine or coarsely as per the recipe requirements.
