I made this about 3 weeks ahead of time, kept it frozen and brought it with me over 3 hours away. I always changed it up adding golden oreos for the crust and frozen blueberries and rasberries and blueberry topping, instead of chocolate and strawberries. Everyone loved it and was a big hit. Would definately make it again!!!

Love the flavor and looks impressive; 1/2 cup butter seemed way too much...could not "sprinkle" on the second half (I'll try 1/4 cup butter next time and see how that works); and Cool Whip would probably make it overly sweet since you are mixing the whipped cream with sweetened condensed milk. If you want to try it, it is probably about 1 to 1-1/2 cups of whipped cream per layer.

This recipe sounds really good and very easy....one question....can Cool Whip be used instead of heavy whipping cream?Thanks!
