These look amazing like you worked all day, but with only 3 ingredients and about 30 minutes of time, you’re finished in a flash!

12 whole strawberries (rinsed, thoroughly dried)
4 ounces of melting chocolate
4 ounces of melting white chocolate

In a small bowl, melt the chocolate in the microwave on high in 90 second increments until melted and creamy.  For the white chocolate, in a small microwavable bowl, melt on high heat in 60 second increments until melted and smooth.

Line a counter or baking sheet with waxed paper; drip strawberries in one type of chocolate or the other, allowing extra chocolate to drip back into bowl.  Lay the strawberry on the wax paper and allow chocolate to cool and harden (about 5-10 minutes).

Then cross-dip the strawberries, if desired, dipping chocolate strawberries into white chocolate and vice-versa, and again placing on waxed paper to fully cool and dry.

Use a fork to lightly drizzle alternating chocolate across dipped strawberries.  And you’re done!  Enjoy!

1/2 cup butter (or margarine)
1 cup powdered sugar
2 eggs
2 egg yolks
6 tablespoons flour
2 cups whipping cream
2 tablespoons sugar

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.  Spray 4 custard cups (or small individual sized baking dishes) with baking spray and place on a cookie sheet.

Microwave butter & chocolate in a large bowl on high for about 1 minute until butter is melted; whisk until chocolate is also melted.

Stir in the sugar, then whisk in the egg yolks and eggs until well combined; stir in the flour.

Divide batter between prepared cups and bake 12-14 minutes or until sides are firm and center is soft; let stand 1 minute.

While cakes are baking, whip together the sugar and whipping cream until stiff.  Invert hot cakes onto dishes and top with whipped cream.
