Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake

This recipe merges two of my favorite desserts…Chocolate + Strawberry Shortcake = YUM! Really, there’s no need for a special occasion to serve up this little bit of goodness! It’s a delicious treat which will be enjoyed all throughout the year. However, with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, we have been looking at one of our favorites to share with you.

Surprise your sweetheart with a dessert on Valentine’s Day they’ll love – this is a mix of chocolate cake/cookie and a strawberry shortcake. My kids LOVE it and ask for it whenever we head over to family or friends and we are in charge of dessert. 🙂

    I made these yesterday. I only used the shortcake recipe, as I macerated my strawberries to my liking, and used canned whipped cream. Anyhow, I had doubts upon putting them in the oven because the batter was so crumbly. But I seriously might never make strawberry shortcake without chocolate shortcakes. They are that delicious! If you like strawberries and chocolate, this is the recipe for you.
