strawberry cheesecake bowl

I made this for Amy's celebratory dessert on Saturday night. It was fantastic and so pretty!

3 cups sliced fresh strawberries
3 T. sugar
2 pkg. Neufchatel Cream Cheese, softened
1-1/2 cups cold milk
1 pkg {3.4 oz} vanilla instant pudding
2 cups thawed Cool Whip Lite, divided
2 cups frozen pound cake, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 square Baker's Semi-Sweet Chocolate {I just used a handful of chocolate chips}

Combine berries and sugar and refrigerate until needed. Beat cream cheese with mixer until creamy. Add milk and vanilla pudding; blend until smooth. Stir in 1 1/2 cups Cool Whip until well blended. Spoon half into 2 1/2 quart bowl or trifle dish. Top with cake cubes, then strawberries, then remaining cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate 4 hours. Top with remaining Cool Whip. Melt chocolate in bowl and drizzle over the top. If you want to get fancy, you can even chocolate-coat a strawberry for the top. Enjoy!

I love knowing that if it's on your site, there's a good chance it's yummy (I haven't tried anything I haven't liked yet!)!

Mmmm this looks amazing. There was a recipe in Kraft magazine this month that looks like this. I am going to try!
