Cover and bake on high about 2 hours. Keep an eye on it and watch for the cake to look done. May only take 1 1/2 hours or maybe longer. Serve out of crock pot and top with cool whip.

I used chocolate but someone suggested white cake and butterscotch pudding?

>> Inside Out Strawberry Cheesecake

Debra Taylor | San Lorenzo, CA | served at several events

(Please note I cook by sight, smell and taste, so all measurements are guesstimates)

1 – 8 oz pkg Cream Cheese
1 – Large pkg fresh strawberries (32 oz)
1/4 C Powdered Sugar
1/2 to 1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbl – Milk possibly more or less
1 Stack Graham Crackers – finely crushed (or whatever you call one wrapped stack of crackers – sleeve?)

Rinse the berries, leave the stems on. In a bowl mix together, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla. This will be quite thick, now start to thin it out with the milk. You want this to be thin enough to easily dip the strawberries into, but not thin like a glaze.

Dip the strawberries into the cream cheese mixture, then roll into the crushed graham crackers. Voila! You are done, and they are ready to eat!. They will hold overnight in the refrigerator.

Easy peasy and everyone oohs and ahs because they look so nice.
