Godiva Triple Chocolate Strawberry No Bake Dessert

Easy No Bake Dessert for summer events

Its Summer Time and the weather is heating up. As Much as I love baking, having the oven on during the warmer days can be unbearable. (Especially since we do not have air conditioning). This decadent and Easy No Bake Dessert is absolutely a favorite summer dish in our house and is great to bring to summer family gatherings because it makes a HUGE amount for a small price tag.

This no Bake dessert features three layers of Godiva pudding in white chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate. It also has fresh sliced strawberries and homemade whip cream on each layer.

1 box Godiva White chocolate pudding mix

1 box Godiva milk chocolate pudding mix

1 box Godiva dark chocolate pudding mix

2 pints whipping cream

2 tablespoons powdered Sugar

1 large crate of strawberries

1 extra large bowl or deep pan
