    Instructions To Make Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shortcakes

    To make the Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shortcakes, these are some very important instructions that you have to follow while making it. So by following these ones you will be able to make the Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shortcakes and the instructions are the following which are shown below: 

    For the Shortcakes:

    1. Set the oven temperature to 425°F. Put parchment paper on a large baking sheet and set it aside.
    2. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large basin. Using a whisk, mix the ingredients until thoroughly blended.
    3. Add the little chunks of butter and rapidly mix the butter with your finger tips into the dry ingredients until almost integrated. After adding the cream, use your hands to stir until the dough barely comes together. It’s going to be shaggy.
    4. Place the dough onto a sanitised surface and use your hands to gently work any stray bits into the dough. Using a rolling pin, pat the dough into a rectangular shape and spread it out to a thickness of approximately one inch. Cut out as many shortcakes as you can with a round or heart-shaped (3–4 inch) biscuit cutter; I generally get three out of the first roll.
    5. Continue cutting out the dough and rerolling the leftover dough until you have six shortcakes in all.
    6. After putting the shortcakes on the prepared baking sheet, bake them for about 16 minutes, or until they are puffy and golden brown. To cool fully, move the heated shortcakes to a cooling rack.

    For the Hot Fudge Sauce:

    1. In a medium-sized sauce pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chocolate baking chips and whisk until the chips are melted, once the butter has melted completely.
    2. Mix in the Sweetened Condensed Milk well with a whisk.
    3. Once the sauce is smooth and silky, keep whisking and simmering. Put away until required.
    4. Any leftovers should be refrigerated.

    For the Strawberries:

    1. Strawberries should be quartered and combined with sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, vanilla, and salt in a large dish. Stir well to coat the strawberries fully and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes or up to 1 hour.

    For the Whipped Cream:

    1. Pour the cool whipping cream into a large basin or the stand mixer’s body that has the whisk attachment attached. Beat the cream on medium-high speed until soft peaks form. After adding the sugar and vanilla, beat for a total of three to four minutes, or until medium-stiff peaks form.


    1. Cut a shortcake in two halves. Top with the other half of the shortcake and place a scant cup of strawberries and two teaspoons of hot fudge in the centre. Top the shortcake with two more tablespoons of hot fudge, a dollop of whipped cream, and any toppings you want. Serve right away and repeat as necessary!


    *If you like a less sweet dessert, you may use quartered strawberries instead of the sweetened ones.
