Be My Valentine Shortcake

Cassie *


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!

How to Make Be My Valentine Shortcake


  • 1Preheat oven to 400 degree F.

    Spray a sheet pan with cooking spray.
  • 2In a bowl, combine Bisquick, 2/3 cup sugar and cocoa.
  • 3Stir in milk and butter; mix well.
  • 4Drop 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.
  • 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.
  • 6In 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.
  • 7Enjoy...the kids loved these. This was a great way of getting the kiddo's involved in cooking.

    **This picture was the one my son made...he got a bit carried away with the chocolate!
