Chocolate Strawberry Ice Box Pie

This past week I was able to spend a week at a beach house for the 4th of July with Geoff,his Son and a family friend. It was a much needed time away from the world.  While planning our big 4th of July dinner I wanted to make a special dessert, like I always do when there is any kind of party or gathering.

 I had a limited supply of baking pans. I found a glass pie pan and decided I could modify it and still make it a very good dessert we could enjoy after our meal and while we watch the fireworks.


Here are the ingredients I used. If I was home making this I would have made real whip cream but the store bought whipped topping turned out to be very good. This is a great Semi-homemade recipe if you are having your own summer gathering.One note:Ignore the baked beans in the picture, they aren't part of the recipe, unless you WANT to be adventurous. NOT!!! Ha Ha!!

Chocolate Strawberry Ice Box Pie

2 1lb Packages of Strawberries
1 box of Famous Nabisco Chocolate Wafers
2 Tubs of Extra Creamy Whip cream
A Glass or metal pie pan

1.Wash and chop one of the containers of strawberries
2.Mix one tub of whip cream with the chopped strawberries and set aside
3.Line the pie plate with chocolate wafers using extra to cover any holes
4.Carefully spread the whip cream,strawberry mixture onto the wafers.
5.add another layer of chocolate layers over the top and spread the other tub of whipped topping over the wafers.
6.Slice a few more strawberries and decorate as desired
7.I crushed 4 or 5 left over wafers and sprinkled the crumbs over the top.

Chill in the refrigerator 4 hours or overnight.




Enjoy,
