Strawberry No Bake Ice Box Cake

This layered dessert is so easy to make and is fancy enough for parties and showers. Graham crackers, homemade whipped cream, fresh strawberries, and chocolate. Who would say no?

2 pounds fresh strawberries, washed and patted dry
3 3/4 cups heavy cream, divided
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon rosewater, optional
4 sleeves (or 24 whole crackers) graham crackers
2 ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped

Cut each strawberry into thin slices.
With a hand mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer, whip 3 1/2 cups of cream until it just holds stiff peaks. Add the confectioners sugar, vanilla, and rosewater (if using) and whip to combine.
Spread a small spoonful of whipped cream on the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking pan. Lay down 6 graham crackers. Lightly cover the top of the graham crackers with more whipped cream, and then a single layer of strawberries. Repeat 3 times, until you have 4 layers of graham crackers. Spread the last of the whipped cream over the top and swirl it lightly with a spoon. Add a few more strawberries.
To make the ganache, heat the remaining 1/4 cup cream until bubbles form around the edges, then pour over the chopped chocolate. Let it stand for a few minutes, then whisk until the mixture is thick and glossy. Drizzle this over the layered dessert with a spoon, or transfer to a squeeze bottle and use that to drizzle.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or until the crackers have softened completely. Garnish with additional berries.
