I always make this recipe when I go to holiday parties and it's always a hit. I leave out the pecans and just add some extra wafers though. -In response to shellag- Nabisco makes vanilla "Nilla" wafers and they're completely different than the cookies sandwiched with icing.
Does anyone know how many cups of cookie crumbs you need? Where I come from a wafer is a cookie sandwiched with icing.
the recipe was tasty, but it was difficult to mix the melted chocolate into the batter. also, i was not able to taste the eggnog as much as i thought i would.
