You can make this using whipped topping, but I'd rather eat the saturated fat that's in whipping cream than the chemicals in whipped topping, so I say go for it and enjoy. It's not an every day treat, after all, it's for my Ladies Who Lunch. You should technically get 8 servings, but we are ladies who lunch with gusto, so this served 4 of us.

No-Bake Chocolate Strawberry "Tiramisu"
1 pint strawberries, cored and chopped
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup cream whipped until stiff peaks form
1 box chocolate wafers
Combine the strawberries and sugar; mash and let sit for a few minutes before using a sieve to remove most of the juices.
Fold the whipped cream and strawberries together until well blended.
Line a loaf pan with plastic wrap, leaving about 4 inches hanging off each end of the pan).
Scoop some of the cream mixture into the bottom of the pan and spread evenly. Taking one of the chocolate wafers, use a scoop of the cream to top the wafer and place it, cream-side-out, against the edge of the pan. Continue in this manner, stacking the cookies against each other until rows are formed and the pan is full (you should get 4 rows).
Fold the plastic wrap over and place the pan in the fridge overnight to soften into a cake).
Before serving, fold back the plastic wrap and turn out onto a serving platter. Remove the plastic wrap and serve.
