Valentine Berries and Cream

    Valentine Berries and Cream
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped, divided
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh strawberries, halved

Line a 9-in. heart-shaped or square pan with foil; set aside.

In a large heavy saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate and shortening; stir until smooth. Pour into prepared pan, swirling to coat the bottom and 1-1/2 in. up the sides.

Refrigerate for 1 minute, then swirl the chocolate to reinforce sides of heart or box. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm. Using foil, lift from pan; remove foil and place chocolate heart on a serving plate.

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Combine confectioners' sugar and cocoa; add to creamed mixture with milk and vanilla. Beat until smooth.

Gently fold two-thirds of the whipped cream into cream cheese mixture. Spoon into heart.

Insert star tip #32 into a pastry or plastic bag; fill with the remaining whipped cream. Pipe around the edge of heart.

Garnish with strawberries.
