Labor Day

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!

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.

Heat the 1/4 cup whipping cream in a small sauce pan until bubbles form around the edges of the pan.

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.
