Last week, my parents threw an impromptu barbecue together. We had barbecue chicken, ribs, salt potatoes, and corn on the cob. I was on dessert duty and wanted to try something new. I had just bought a huge container of fresh strawberries that needed to be used up before we headed on vacation. I scoured Pinterest for something the husband would approve {don’t get me started} and came across this delicious looking thing.No-Bake Strawberry Icebox Cake-2

I prepped it the morning of our barbecue and it took all it had in me not to dive right in and try it out. But I knew, after reading the recipe, that letting it sit longer would make it better.

And it was totally worth the wait!  No-Bake Strawberry Icebox Cake-3

No-Bake Strawberry Icebox Cake

Ingredients

  • 3 lbs. fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 2 (8 oz.) tubs whipped topping
  • 1 (14.4 oz.) box graham crackers
  • 1/4 cup milk chocolate chip morsels

Instructions

  1. Spread a small amount of whipped topping on the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking pan. Place 5 graham cracker sheets down the middle and break 2 more sheets into crackers to fit down the sides. Lightly cover the top of the graham crackers with more whipped topping and then a layer of sliced strawberries. Repeat three times, until you have four layers of graham crackers. End with a layer of strawberries on top.
  2. Place milk chocolate chip morsels in a plastic bag. Microwave in 10 second intervals until melted. Snip the end of the plastic bag and drizzle chocolate over top of cake.
  3. Refrigerate covered for at least four hours, or until the crackers have softened completely. No-Bake Strawberry Icebox Cake-1
