    diner524's Note:

    A casual yet elegant dessert. I posted the recipe for Classic Shortcakes separately, then use this recipe to top the shortcakes. The strawberries need to stand for at least 30 minutes, but can be made the day before. Time doesn't include standing time for strawberries.

      This was very good. We don't like the sweetened frozen strawberry sauce, so I just increased the amount of strawberries and made my own sauce. The chocolate sauce was a breeze to put together. I served with some fresh raspberries on top. Made and reviewed for PRMR. Sorry it took so long. Thanks! :)

      Hi Diner 524, It never occurred to me to include chocolate in a strawberry shortcake. Wow, was this neat! One of my favorite flavor combinations. Even though it's still late winter, strawberries show up at the local market from places unknown and I can't pass them up. What a wonderful way to indulge!
