Chocolate Lover’s Strawberry Shortcakes

As a mom of four, I appreciate shortcut recipes. This one uses refrigerated biscuits, giving me time for special touches, like adding homemade whipped cream and hot fudge. —Melissa Haines, Valparaiso, Indiana

    8 shortcakes


  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar

  • 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar

  • Preheat oven to 350°. In a shallow bowl, mix confectioners' sugar and cocoa until blended. Dip biscuits in cocoa mixture to coat; shake off excess.
  • Place 2 in. apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool slightly.
