Chocolate Strawberry Fool

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries, divided
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream, very cold

Preparation

  1. Place 1 cup of strawberries in a small bowl and add the sugar and vanilla extract. Mash the strawberries into small pieces using a fork. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Pour the cold whipping cream into a cold, medium-sized bowl. Using a beater, whip the cream until it holds stiff peaks. Fold the mashed strawberries and 3/4 of the chocolate into the whipped cream.
  3. Using a tablespoon, fill a wide-mouth glass (such as a martini glass or tumbler) 1/3 full with the whipped cream, then top with a layer of sliced strawberries. Repeat with more whipped cream and another layer of strawberries. Top with remaining whipped cream and garnish with chocolate shavings.

Serving Suggestion

Accompany this elegant dessert with a plate of delicate shortbread cookies. Blueberries, raspberries, or pitted cherries can be used instead of the strawberries, if you prefer.

Tips & Notes

Substitute all or a portion of the whipped cream with low-fat vanilla yogurt or Greek yogurt for a lower fat version.
