Strawberry and Chocolate Ice Box Cake

I get on these kicks with food.  One summer it was bean burgers.  Couldn't get enough of them, then it was granola bars, although I still make them pretty regularly.  Then it was crepes.  Anyway- you get the message.  Now, it is ice box cake time.
At an Amish store about an hour South of here they have these chocolate flower cookies.  They are for making ice cream sandwiches.  They sell rather large bag of them.  It has taken me a while to go through them but they were perfect for this dessert.  You can sub in chocolate graham crackers.

Chocolate Strawberry Icebox Cake

chocolate wafers (ice cream sandwich type or chocolate graham crackers
1 1/2 whipped heavy cream with about two tablespoons of sugar thrown in
Strawberries sliced flat with a few left whole or cut in half
chocolate sauce

Start with a layer of chocolate wafer.
Next straberries layed out flat and covering as much of the cookie as possible.
Next a lay of whipped cream
Drizzle chocolate sauce over that if you like.
Then another layer just like that ending with whipped cream and whatever garnish you desire.  Strawberry, maybe some mint, chocolate drizzle.

Place in refrigerator for at least two hours and up to overnight.

The possibilities are endless for this.

i feel like i've seen a version of this with vanilla wafer cookies, but chocolate would be equally delicious, if not better!
