The Pin Junkie: No Bake Strawberry & Cream Refrigerator Cake

So this no bake strawberry and cream refrigerator cake is pretty amazing!  It has only four ingredients, there's no measuring, mixing, or cooking required, there's very little cleanup in the way of dirty dishes, and it's incredibly yummy!  This strawberry and cream cake is simply layers of whipped cream, graham crackers, and strawberries with chocolate on top.  I made it a day ahead of when I served it.  You would think the graham crackers would get soggy from the whipped cream and strawberries, but it made the graham crackers soft, not soggy and they tasted like very thin layers of cake.

The only thing that gave me problems was the chocolate.  I melted the chocolate over the stove and tried to use a spoon to drizzle it.  Even though the chocolate was melted, it must not have been hot enough because it cooled before I could get the spoon over the top of the desert to drizzle it.  I tried putted the chocolate in a piping bag, and the effect was pretty, but I felt like WAY too much good chocolate was left in the piping bag and not nearly enough got on the dessert.  Next time (and I'll certainly be making this again) I might just sprinkle mini chocolate chips on the top and call it done!

I'm even going to say this recipe is somewhat healthy, at least when compared to other deserts.  It's certainly low fat with the graham crackers and strawberries and I used low fat whipped cream.  This recipe is definitely a winner!

  1. This recipe sounds delicious and so easy to make! Love the strawberry topping and chocolate drizzle. And I totally know what you mean about too much chocolate stuck to the piping bag! That's why I always use the spoon method :)

  6. This looks so good and easy. I'm use to making desserts that take half a day. Since my husband is on a diet, making something healthier needs to be on the horizon.

  9. It looks so good and I saw where you said it was inspired by two different pins, but do you have your version with quantities somewhere? I saw where the one recipe took three pounds of strawberries and that sounded like a huge cake. I want to make your version. Thanks.
