Looking for a dessert that will be as rewarding to the eye as it is the tastebuds? You can't go wrong with this easy, light, creamy, chocolate, strawberry sensation! The only problem you'll run into is...there will never be enough! Thanks to Kraft I've been making my own variation of this dessert for years. It never gets old.
The hardest part of making this "show stopper" dessert is dipping the strawberries in semi-sweet chocolate and stopping yourself from eating them (smile).
The big reveal...
Once you have your shortcake made and your chocolate strawberries ready, assembling is easy as "pie" (who ever said pie is easy?). Seriously though, it's so fun to put this cake together and your kids can help. Really hard to mess it up and they'll love it. HINT: You'd be wise to make some extra chocolate dipped strawberries as a reward for their help or you might end up with a few missing.
Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake
You don't have to buy buttermilk, you can simply add 2 tsp lemon juice (my preference) or vinegar to just under half a cup of milk. Let it sit for a few minutes and presto, a wonderful substitute for buttermilk.
All things cooking, from simple and clean to gourmet and exotic (and everything in between) have been my passion for over 30 years. Since discovering Pinterest, I pretty much exclusively cook from the recipes I PIN. My saying is, "if you can PIN it, you can cook it". I love to PIN recipes and I love to cook. I thought, why not blog the recipes I make from my Pinterest food boards. I'm the self-declared, Pincook.
