If you love strawberry shortcake, then you are going to love these Chocolate Chip Strawberry Shortcakes. Because after all, isn’t everything better when you throw in some chocolate?
If you’ve only ever made strawberry shortcake using angel food cake, then it’s definitely time that you branch out, shake things up a bit and give these a try.The shortcakes are so simple to make. They have this buttery, melt-in-your-mouth texture, that is divine! Then you top them with sweetened whipped cream and strawberries . . .are you hungry yet?
I love the bits of chocolate throughout, so much so, that I always throw in some extra chocolate chips. I also like to sometimes do half mini semi sweet chocolate chips and half milk chocolate chips.
This is the perfect dessert for your spring and summer BBQs.
A FEW TIPS ABOUT MAKING THESE SHORTCAKES:
- It’s really important that you don’t over mix the ingredients. The batter will be thick, and kind of “shaggy looking”, don’t keep mixing it trying to get it smooth.
- DO NOT over bake these shortbreads because if you do, they will be dry and not very good. You want the bottoms to just be golden.
- Fold in the chocolate chips at the end, just until combined.
- These are best if eaten the day you make them.
