Chocolate Friday - Chocolate Strawberry Shortcakes


Chocolate dipped strawberries are really good. And here's another recipe that combines chocolate with strawberries. I found this recipe on the Taste of Home website.



Chocolate Strawberry Shortcakes

Ingredients:

  • 1 quart fresh strawberries, sliced, divided
  • 2/3 cup sugar, divided
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon miniature semisweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 3/4 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sugar
  • 1/2 pint heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 3/4 cup hot fudge ice cream topping, divided
  • 10 fresh strawberries or grated chocolate, optional

Directions:

Combine strawberries and 1/3 cup sugar; refrigerate if desired. In a bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt and remaining sugar. Cut in butter and 2/3 cup morsels until crumbly. Add half-and-half and stir until just moistened. Divide dough into 8 patties, about 3/4-in. thick. Place on waxed-paper-lined baking sheets. Brush with egg white; sprinkle with coarse sugar and remaining morsels. Bake at 450° for 13 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool slightly. Meanwhile, in a bowl, beat whipping cream and confectioners' sugar until stiff peaks form. Refrigerate.
To serve, carefully split the shortcakes horizontally and place bottom halves, on individual dessert plates. Top with one-half of each of the strawberries, whipped cream and fudge sauce, sliced strawberries and whipped cream. Garnish with a whole strawberry if desired. Yield: 8 servings.


Until next time...

This looks deadly!

I, too, buy calico's frequently for daily wear. They are so inexpensive and sooo cute. We often have to line them because they are thin...but no big deal!

Happy Saturday!
