Two classic warm-weather desserts are weaknesses for me – one is peach cobbler and the other is strawberry shortcake. I could literally eat half of a 9 by 13 of peach cobbler by myself – and a whole tray of strawberry shortcakes. And since chocolate and strawberries are a match made in heaven, why not chocolate shortcakes?
Many of the recipes I found for chocolate shortcakes involved melting chocolate in double boilers, etc., but using a spread skips this step and makes this recipe so much simpler.
And I have now found out that adding chocolate hazelnut spread takes shortcake to a whole new level of deliciousness.
These shortcakes are like chocolate biscuits – just crispy enough to soak up the berry juices. And rich chocolate is the perfect match for sweet fresh berries.
The perfect summer dessert!
