Recipe: No-Bake Strawberry Icebox Cake

No-Bake Strawberry Icebox Cake recipe is great for summer entertaining!

8-10 servings

2 pounds fresh strawberries
2 pints cold heavy whipping cream
1/3-1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 box (14 ounces) graham crackers or gingersnaps
Topping: chocolate syrup, shave chocolate, sprinkles or chocolate candies (I used Milk Duds)

Clean & pat dry strawberries. Save a few beauties for the topping. Slice the strawberries thin.
Whip the cream in a mixer with whisk attachment. Start on low & increase the speed as the cream thickens. Add the sugar to taste.
Use a platter or a baking dish & start to layer your cake. Start with a few dollops of whipped cream to anchor the cake. Then make 4 layers starting with the graham crackers, whipped cream then strawberries. Add more whipped cream for glue. Repeat this process. Final layer should be whipped cream. Garnish with whole strawberries & chocolate.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight so cookies can soften.
Serve immediately.
