Happy Strawberries and Cream Day! I didn't know that was a thing, but apparently it is and apparently it's today. So, I thought I'd share with you one of the easiest and pretty damn tasty desserts you will ever make. Enjoy!
The recipe actually calls for a lot more work than I put into it (like making your own cream filling and chocolate sauce–psssh, yeah right, like I’m going to do that). I’ll post the original recipe from The Kitchn though for any of you who aren’t as lazy as I am: No-Bake Strawberry Icebox Cake.
For my version you only need 4 things:
- Graham Crackers
- Cool Whip
- Chocolate Syrup (optional)
Now, time to put it all together:
First, wash and cut your strawberries into thin slices.
Next, start your first layer of graham crackers (don’t worry, I filled in the gaps).
Then, put on a layer of cool whip.
A layer of strawberries, then repeat till finished! Now, you can top it with chocolate sauce. I didn't have any when I made it this time, so I left it off.
Then comes the final step, which is the hardest. You have to let it chill in the fridge for at least FOUR HOURS. I know. But trust me, it's worth it!
