This recipe is CRAZY EASY to make! Perfect dessert to bring for a potluck! No Bake Strawberries & Cream Chocolate Cake! YUM!

I was excited to partner with Little Debbie to bring you this recipe.  All the fun, crazy, and romantic memories from growing up and opinions in this post are my own.

Chocolate + Strawberries = True love.  Or something like that… It is definitely one of my favorite flavor combinations.  As a matter of fact on the first big date my husband took me on, back when we were just babies in college, he knew I absolutely loved chocolate and strawberry, so he made chocolate covered strawberries for me FROM SCRATCH!  He dipped them himself. Can you imagine an awkward college boy who barely knew how to use the microwave doing this?! Seriously… How sweet is that!?

That might have been the first and last time he has ever cooked for me, but fast forward a couple (or many) years and 3 kids and we both still love chocolate and strawberries. Now, though, quick and easy is just as important as delicious with busy family life. In my Strawberries & Cream Chocolate Cake, it is all of that, plus no bake which makes it perfect for little 3 year old hands to help put together.

To make it no bake, it starts out with Little Debbie® Swiss Rolls which are layers of delicious chocolate cake rolled with sweet cream filling then covered in chocolate.  Little Debbie® always brings back memories!   I have years of memories of going to the store with my dad when I was little.  We would walk up and down the aisles and feel the soft bread.  If we were good though, we always got to pick a treat.  My favorite then was the Little Debbie® Nutty Bars.  I always without hesitation chose those!  My dad loved the chocolate cake with the cream filling though and I used to try to steal the icing off the top!  Here I am 30 years later still looking forward to my favorite treats!  I guess it really is the taste you will never outgrow!
