The kids and I made these as a practice trial...gonna surprise Dad for Valentines Day!


They turned out wonderful...wish the pictures would have shown better, but you get the idea!

Chocolate and strawberries go so well together..this was a tasty and pretty dish..

The recipe can be halved. If only making a few. I froze the remainder of the cakes, for a later use.

You could also just make a few larger ones or share a big one with your sweetie!

5Set aside 8 - 10 strawberries; slice remaining strawberries..sugar them a little if you want. We left them without sugar. The chocolate syrup makes up for the sweetness, or lack thereof.
