This Martha White Chocolate Chip Strawberry Shortcake is a fun, delicious twist on traditional strawberry shortcake using Martha White chocolate chip muffin mix! This luscious, creamy dessert is loaded with chocolate chips making the dish extra rich and very seasonally-appropriate. (Hey, the kids have to get their fruit somehow!) The pop of red from the strawberries can make a great-looking addition to a holiday dessert tray. For flavor variation, try other seasonal fruits like cherries, or sweetened cranberries in a sauce instead of strawberries in this recipe. Take a peek at the recipe, courtesy of Martha White, below.
