Ingredients

Strawberries

  • 12 oz strawberries sliced
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

Chocolate Shortcakes

  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons semi sweet chocolate chopped into small pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup whipping cream cold
  • 3 tablespoons butter melted and cooled

Whipped Cream

  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Place the sliced strawberries in a medium bowl with 2 tablespoons sugar.  Gently mix together and set aside.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Whisk flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, chopped chocolate and salt together.  Add the whipping cream and mix gently, then add the butter and mix until combined.
  • Divide the batter into about 5-6 balls, place on the parchment and smoosh down slightly.
  • Place the pan in the freezer for 10 minutes (if you don't have room in your freezer for the whole baking sheet, put them on a greased plate).
  • Then bake for 9-11 minutes until cooked through.
  • Then work on the whipping cream.  Pour the whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a mixer bowl and beat over high speed until medium to stiff peaks form, about one minute.
  • To assemble the shortcakes, place one biscuit on a plate, top with some whipped cream and strawberries, then add another biscuit with more whipped cream and strawberries.  Or make mini shortcakes with a single biscuit layer.
