The first time I experienced Strawberries with Cream & Chocolate was at our family’s annual 4th of July celebration twenty-one years ago.  A dear friend, Jan Leone, brought it as her contribution for the potluck meal. It was sitting next to the other desserts like cherry & apple pie, puppy chow, homemade ice cream, chocolate sheet cake and watermelon when I saw it for the first time. I stood there and just stared at it. It was gorgeous, simple and perfect and I knew I would love it. Strawberries with Cream & Chocolate has three ingredients: fresh strawberries, chocolate shavings and Cool Whip. I’m not kidding you – that’s it, but that’s enough!

I have served this dish so many times over the years. It is as great during the winter as it is in the summer. I have taken it to picnics and served it at formal gatherings. I absolutely love it and you will, too.
