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! My pictures.

    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.
