In a plastic slider bag, break 50 wafers into small pieces. They should be chunky pieces, not fine dust. In an 8x8 dish, put the pieces on the bottom and stack the whole pieces around the edge.
Cut strawberries into pieces and sprinkle with sugar. Let strawberries set for 10 minutes to absorb the sugar. Drain excess liquid off of strawberries and layer in the dish over the wafers.
Do not start the next step until you have the strawberries in the dish over the wafers. I got ahead of myself one time and made the pudding mix, which sets up really fast and my strawberries were still in the bowl. By the time I layered the strawberries, my pudding mix was a solid gooey mess
Mix pudding mix and milk in a bowl for 5 minutes. Tip: Pour the milk in fast over the mix and stir. The pudding mix calls for 3 cups of milk. I use 2 cups to make a thicker pudding.
Spread the pudding over the strawberries and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Remove from refrigerator and cover the pudding with whipped topping. Take a few minutes and sit back and admire your new dessert, then serve.
