Ingredients

Servings:
  • 3 Cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • .5 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • .5 Cup chocolate-hazelnut spread (I like Nutella)
  • 15 standard cinnamon graham cracker sheets
  • 2.5 Cup thinly sliced strawberries


Preparation

  1. Line an 8 by 8-inch baking pan with aluminum foil and set aside. Combine the cream, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla in a large bowl and mix with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a clean bowl and gently fold in the chocolate-hazelnut spread. Be careful not to mix too aggressively or your cream will deflate. Line the prepared pan with graham crackers. You may have to break a few pieces to get them to fit just right. Top with a thick layer of chocolate hazelnut whipped cream. Next, place 1 cup sliced strawberries over the cream evenly—they should sink in a bit. Repeat the layering process twice, ending with cream. Your cake will have 3 layers of graham crackers, 3 layers of cream, and 2 layers of strawberries. Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight. Garnish with the remaining sliced strawberries and cut into 1-inch slices.

Makes about 20 servings.
