Chocolate Chip Strawberry Shortcake

I just love Strawberry Shortcake and whipping up different variations of this simply delicious dessert. So when I was invited to participate in a Strawberry Shortcake Contest hosted by Driscolls, I happily stepped into my kitchen ready to experiment once again. I recently posted a Rosé Spiked Strawberry Shortcake recipe whereby adding a little “kiss” of wine adds that little special touch.  Here is another twist on my favorite American classic – Strawberry Shortcake with Chocolate Chips.

This variation adds the always enticing flavor of chocolate morsels to compliment the sweetness of the strawberry mixture, not to mention the enchanting combo of chocolate and cream which is always a hit. For this recipe I used a cookie cutter to ensure the biscuits were all the same size making it easier to stack them and I like to add a dash of large sugar crystals (like Turninado sugar) on top of each dessert biscuit.

You can also experiment by adding flavors to your homemade whipped cream. In this case I added a teaspoon of vanilla extract, however you can add almond or mint extract or a tablespoon of liqueur such as amaretto (for an almond flavor) or St. Germain or Pavan.  And you could add finely chopped almonds, hazelnuts or pecans to the biscuits as well. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
