Be My Valentine Shortcake
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!
