Strawberry Cloud Dessert

This is the recipe I brought to the party this month. I meant to take a picture, but we ate it too fast. :) It was pretty easy to make. Just be sure to use a very large saucepan and very large bowl...the marshmallows really puff up!

2 cups (32 squares) chocolate graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup melted margarine
1 package large marshmallows
1 3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 pints fresh strawberries, chopped
1 carton frozen whipped topping, thawed

Combine crumbs and margarine; press into 9x13 pan. Melt marshmallows with milk over low heat until smooth. Cool mixture; whisk in vanilla. Fold in strawberries and whipped topping. Spread over crust. Refrigerate 2-3 hours before serving.

I want to make this again soon and try substituting mandarin oranges or raspberries for the strawberries just to see how it would be.
