Chocolate chip strawbery shortcake

by t. tiffin , VALPARAISO, IN on Aug. 2006

This is a simple dessert for a summer meal. Its a great twist on a basic strawberry shortcake. The chocolate chips are a nice sweet bonus. My family loves it! They always go for seconds(and thirds if possible!)

Very Good

by R. Renee , Hollywood, FL on Aug. 2006

This is a very good ideal. Chocolate and strawberries have always gone well together. Maybe even drizzle a little chocolate sauce over the top for a pretty decoration. Im excited to give it a try.

great combination of flavours

by p. parag , ATLANTA, GA on Aug. 2006

this was a great combination of flavours. The strawberries and cream have always been great but the added cake and cookies made such a difference.
