Chocolate Strawberry Short Stuff

My buddy, Alex, asked me if I could help him make a strawberry masterpiece for the Mill’s kids contest. The recipe involved chocolate and whip cream so there was no way I could say no! I tell ya, it was even harder for the both of us to resist licking the spoons, beater and plates! We decided to call our dish, “Chocolate Strawberry Short Stuff.” It gives a fun chocolatey twist to the traditional Strawberry Short Cake experience. Give it a try!
