What You Need

 vanilla wafers, divided
cup  sugar, divided
Tbsp.  margarine or butter, melted
pkg.  (3.4 oz. each) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
cups  cold milk
cups  thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
cups  sliced fresh strawberries

Make It

CRUSH 40 wafers; mix with 3 Tbsp. sugar and margarine. Press onto bottom of 13x9-inch pan.

BEAT pudding mixes and milk in large bowl with whisk 2 min. Stir in COOL WHIP; spread half over crust. Cover with layers of remaining wafers and pudding mixture. Refrigerate 3 hours. Meanwhile, toss strawberries with remaining sugar. Refrigerate until ready to use.

CUT dessert into squares to serve; top with berry mixture.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Instead of refrigerating dessert for 3 hours, freeze it for just 1 hour or until firm before cutting into squares.
Special Extra
Garnish each square with a dollop of additional thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping and vanilla wafer.
No-Mess Crumb Crust
Place 40 wafers in large resealable plastic bag. Use a rolling pin to crush the wafers in the bag. Add sugar and margarine; press down bag to remove excess air, then seal bag. Squeeze bag until mixture is well blended. Empty contents of bag into pan. Use back of spoon or small measuring cup to press crumb mixture onto bottom of pan.
