Strawberry Ice Box Torte - a taste of summer :)

Yesterday we got a HUGE 2 lb container of strawberries . I took the opportunity to turn half of them into a quick dessert that I adapted from a Kraft recipe.
Get out your graham crackers- time to get busy!

Strawberry Ice Box Torte
1 pkg instant french vanilla pudding mix
1/2 an 8 oz tub of frozen whipped topping,thawed
one pack of graham crackers
1 1/4c milk
16 oz pkg strawberries,sliced

     Slice up your berries and set aside. Whisk together pudding mix & milk for two minutes or so, fold in the whipped topping and then fold the strawberries into your pudding mixture. Now layer graham crackers into the bottom of your dish. i chose a loaf pan, but an 8x8 would work well too. I broke the graham sheets on the seams to fit as needed. You can break them up & lay them however you'd like. Now layer 1/3 of the pudding mixture on top of  the first layer of grahams. Repeat this two more times. Garnish with berries & more whipped topping if you like. Refrigerate for a good 4 hours before serving. That's it! Enjoy :)
