I love me some Chocolate...no lots of Chocolate. As much of a Chocoholic as I am, I can not and will not have a heavy chocolate cake for dessert. It usually is great the first few bites but it will have you reaching to loosen your belt in no time. I believe a dessert should be satisfying and not heavy. Nice and light. Otherwise it may ruin your meal. I save the decadent desserts for girls nights and when we have friends over for coffee.
This has all the best qualities for a great sweet ending. It looks pretty and impressive. Everyone gets their own serving. You can make it a day in advance. It is also very dangerous because it is very cheap, quick and easy to make. Not to mention I usually have all the ingredients on hand anyway. You can even drop a dollop of it into your morning coffee the next day.
2 Cups of COLD heavy cream
1 cup of Semi Sweet Chocolate chips
2 teaspoons of Vanilla extract.
3 tablespoons of butter
Garnish: Chocolate shavings and 6 strawberries
Depending on how big your cups are this recipe will serve 6.
Melt the butter and a 1/4 cup of heavy cream over low heat.
Add the Chocolate Chips and vanilla. Whisk until smooth. Set aside and let it cool to room temperature. The butter will prevent the chocolate from hardening up again.
Divide into 6 Cups, top with a strawberry and the chocolate shavings.
