- Using an electric mixer, whisk together 1 3/4 cups heavy cream, 3 tablespoons confectioners sugar and 1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder until soft peaks form. Spread about 1/3 cup into an 8-inch round on a large serving platter. Arrange 6 chocolate wafer cookies in a circle on top and place an additional cookie in the center. Spread another 1/3 cup whipped cream evenly onto the cookies; sprinkle sweetened shredded coconut on top.
