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!

Ingredients

2/3 c
plus 2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 c
baking cocoa, i used hershey's
1/3 c
butter, melted

egg white
2 1/2 pt

2 c

4 Tbsp
confectioners' sugar
1 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400 degree F.

Drop by 1/3 cupfuls 2 inches apart on greased baking pan.

Beat egg white till foamy, brush over shortcakes. Sprinkle with remaining sugar.

Bake at 400 for 15 to 18 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
5
Set 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.
6
In a mixing bowl, beat cream and confectioners' sugar until soft peaks form.

Before serving, split the shortcakes horizontally , spoon a couple large tablespoons of whipped cream and then some strawberries.

Add the top. Spoon more whipped cream, then drizzle with chocolate syrup. Add a whole strawberry to the top.
