Stir in diced strawberries. Fold in 1 qt. whipped topping (or 2 cups whipped topping for trial recipe). Refrigerate until slightly thickened.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Make Ahead
Cheesecakes can be baked ahead of time. Cool, then wrap tightly in plastic wrap (or place in airtight container) and freeze up to 1 month. Remove from freezer as needed and place in cooler to thaw. Top with prepared mousse, then refrigerate until firm. Continue as directed.
