Chocolate and strawberries have never been more delightful! Moist, delicious chocolate cake topped with an amazing strawberry whipped topping and hot fudge swirl! If you like chocolate covered strawberries, you’re gonna LOVE this cake!
This week I’m turning the big 4-0. I can’t say I’m super excited about it, as I’m not sure anyone really is when they’re entering middle-age. However, I will say that I have much to be grateful for – a fantastic family, wonderful friends and neighbors, and a fantastic community where I live.
My birthdays growing up were always a family affair – grandparents, lots of cousins, and of course my parents and brothers. I usually had one of two birthday cake options; 1) Angel-food cake with strawberries, or 2) Grandma’s Chocolate Cake. Both of these are pretty awesome, and both always bring back great memories of fantastic birthdays. This year for my birthday I couldn’t decide which to make, so since it’s a special milestone, I decided to combine the two into one glorious cake!
I started off with my Grandma’s Best Chocolate Cake, which it probably one of my all-time favorite chocolate cake recipes! It’s incredibly moist, delicious and the perfect amount of chocolate. I then wanted to add some strawberry into the cake, so I made an amazing Strawberry Cream Cheese Whipped Topping to layer on top. The flavor is incredible, and the perfect way to infuse some strawberry flavor. Next, I swirled some hot fudge on top of the strawberry topping, and ran a toothpick through it to create pretty stripes.
For a pretty garnish, I then dipped fresh strawberries into chocolate, and added one to the top of each slice! It really brings all the flavors of the cake together perfectly!
Here’s the recipe for this incredibly delicious Chocolate Covered Strawberry Chocolate Cake:
If you or someone in your birthday is celebrating a birthday, I hope it is fabulous! This cake is perfect for any occasion, and perfect when you’re looking for the flavors of home. Enjoy! ~Erin
