Labor Day is this weekend and while the holiday has a meaning of celebrating the economic and social contributions of workers for many of us it also means the end of summer. And with that comes the end of summer sweet strawberries. This is a perfect recipe for Labor Day because it uses some delicious fresh summer berries and there is no baking required to make this icebox cake. So it is super simple to make and a chilled cold creamy berry filled cake is just what hit’s the spot on a hot summer day gathered around picnic tables grilling food and hanging out with friends and family!

A super simple no-bake cake that takes advantage of fresh seasonal berries. Drizzle with a chocolate ganache to take this icebox cake to the next level of heaven!
For The Cake
2 Lbs. Strawberries, washed, hulled and sliced*
3 Cups Whipping Cream
1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
2 Teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
24-28 Whole Graham Crackers (4 Sleeves)
For The Ganache
1/4 Cup Whipping Cream
2 Oz. Semi-Sweet Chocolate, chopped*
For The Cake
With a mixer whip the whipping cream until it holds stiff peaks.
Add the vanilla extract and powdered sugar to to the cream and whip to combine.
In the bottom of a 8″X13″ baking pan spread a layer of the sweetened whipped cream to cover the bottom of the pan.
Place a layer of graham crackers over the whipped cream.
Then place a layer of strawberries.
Continue layering until you run out of strawberries and graham crackers, ending with a final layer of whipped cream.
Place baking dish in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
For The Ganache
Heat the 1/4 cup whipping cream in a small sauce pan until bubbles form around the edges of the pan.
Pour the heated cream over the chopped chocolate and let stand for 5 minutes.
Whisk the chocolate and cream mixture until the mixture is thick and glossy.
Drizzle the chocolate ganache over the cake.
* Feel free to change this recipe up by using other berries or fresh fruit. I have made this with raspberries, blackberries and even bananas & strawberries combined.
* You can also use semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of the chopped chocolate for the ganache.

Well, the coupons are hot this week! With Labor Day right around the corner we are going to start seeing the last push off for summer related coupons before we head into fall coupons. That means, if you have not stockpiled up on items like condiments (ketchup, BBQ sauce, mayo, mustard & salad dressing), paper goods (plates, bowls, cups) and grilling meats like hot dogs now is a good time to be watching for those deals and filling up your pantry to last until around Memorial Day next year.
This weeks Sunday coupon inserts seem to have a lot of coupons that will help you save on those items. I see Kraft BBQ sauce, Heinz Ketchup (this is a good one this brand of ketchup does not put out coupons all the time) and other goodies!
This insert preview is brought to you courtesy of Klip2Save a coupon clipping service located out of Tennessee. If you are in the market for some clipped coupons check them out and get your orders in before the hot coupons are sold out!
