Is there anything better than chocolate, strawberries, and whipped cream?

Top Review by moxie

These were delicious and make SUCH a gorgeous dessert!!! I made them for a baby shower, and they were long gone while the other desserts just languished on the table. I melted some chocolate chips and drizzled them over the top, too. I did only use about half of the filling, but it's pretty good on it's own. =)
