How to Make Mess-Free Wafer Crumbs

Crushing wafers into crumbs can be a messy task. To keep the crumbs contained, place the whole wafers in a resalable plastic bag. Squeeze the air from the bag, then seal the bag. Run a rolling pin back and forth over the wafers until finely crushed.

How to Store

Refrigerate leftover squares.
