Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Hints Iíve found work best for me:
Cream cheese mixes best when close to room temp. The Cool Whip should be thawed but not warm

Be sure and wait for Mix 1 to cool completely before topping with Mix 2.

RE: strawberries. They must be thawed enough to where they will break apart but still are partially frozen in chunks when placed in refrigerator. Upon removal from refrigerator, break up any remaining chunks before pouring on.
