Instructions

To make the graham cracker crust:

  • Grease a 9-inch spring-form pan with cooking spray or softened butter. Line the bottom and sides with parchment paper.
  • Place the graham crackers, sugar, and salt in the bowl of a food processer and process until finely ground. Add the melted butter and process until the crumbs are uniformly moistened, scraping the bowl if necessary.
  • Transfer the crumbs to the prepared pan and using your fingers, firmly press them into the bottom and 2/3 of the way up the sides of the pan. Then use a measuring cup or straight-sided glass to tightly secure the crumbs into place. Freeze the crust while you make the filling.

To make the filling:

  • Transfer the crumbs to the prepared pan and using your fingers, firmly press them into the bottom and 2/3 of the way up the sides of the pan. Then use a measuring cup or straight-sided glass to tightly secure the crumbs into place. Freeze the crust while you make the filling.
  • In a separate bowl and with a hand mixer, whip the cream until it holds stiff peaks. Gently fold the cream into the chocolate filling. 
  • Transfer the filling to the prepared crust, smoothing the top with an offset spatula or butter knife. Cover the cake with plastic wrap and refrigerate the cake for 4 to 5 hours.

To make the glaze:

  • Place all of the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high in 30 second bursts, stirring after each, until melted and smooth Let cool to thicken slightly.
  • Remove the sides of the pan and the bottom (by sliding a long, serrated knife between the crust and the metal bottom to loosen). Place the cake on a serving plate and pour the strawberry glaze over the top, spreading the glaze almost to the crust, but leaving the edges of the cake exposed. Place in the refrigerator to set up, about 20 minutes.
  • Slice into wedges and serve with fresh strawberries on the side.
  • The cake will keep tightly wrapped in plastic wrap for up to 3 days.
