    Chocolate chip strawbery shortcake

    tiffin crowder from VALPARAISO, IN

    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

    Renee Haripal from Hollywood, FL

    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

    parag karania from ATLANTA, GA

    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.

    easy

    JENNIFER MARSH from SYRACUSE, NY

    This was a great substitute for a birthday cake. I was pressed for time so I baked the shortcake then combined the strawberries with raspberries. I topped with whipped heavy cream. I will definitely make again using seasonal fruit.

    Chocolate Chip Strawberry Shortcake

    SHEILA NEELAN from WINNETKA, CA

    What a change in the regular shortcake I grow up on the chocolate chips just made it so much better. Only 1 little problem I found in the directions is doesn't say anything about the chocolate chips so I just placed them on top of the whipped topping then the strawberries on top of them.

    I made this for a 4th of July dinner, along with regular shortcake. The chocolate chip shortcake won hands down. Everyone raved about them so much that I no longer make regular shortcake.
