  • 1 cup  lower-fat non-dairy whipped topping  250 mL
  • 36  plain chocolate wafers  36


  1. In a medium bowl, add chocolate pudding mix to milk. Beat for 2 minutes, until thickened and smooth. Fold in whipped topping.
  2. Arrange 18 chocolate wafers in a single layer on prepared cookie sheet. Spoon chocolate pudding mixture onto the wafers. Top with remaining wafers, pressing lightly and smoothing around the edges with a knife, if necessary.
  3. Freeze for at least 3 hours, until firm, or in an airtight container for up to 1 month. (If they are too hard to eat, let sit at room temperature for 10 minutes before serving.)
