Some things were born to just go together. Like ham and cheese, salt and pepper, socks and cold weather…and chocolate and strawberries! Here are 2 recipes from ThriveLife using their shelf-stable ingredients, and we’ve added 10 more chocolate strawberry recipes to tempt you.
2 cups ThriveLife All-Purpose Flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Iodized Salt
3 tablespoons ThriveLife Cane Sugar
1 stick butter, or 1/2 cup reconstituted ThriveLife Butter Powder, chilled
2/3 to 3/4 cup half and half
2 cups ThriveLife Freeze Dried Sliced Strawberries, rehydrated and drained
1/3 cup ThriveLife Cane Sugar
1 1/2 cups Cool-Whip, or freshly whipped cream
Sprinkle rehydrated strawberry slices with the sugar; cover and let stand at room temperature for about one hour. If using freshly whipped cream, whip the cream until it holds a soft peak and sweeten with sugar or ThriveLife Honey Crystals to taste. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Preheat oven to 425°F. Set rack at center level.
Combine, flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in large bowl, and then add butter cut into about 8 pieces. Mix with pastry tool until it resembles coarse meal and make a well in the center. With a fork, stir in the half & half, just until dough is moist. Do not overwork. The dough doesn’t have to hold together well at this point. Let the dough stand for a minute. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Fold the dough over on itself 2 for 3 turns, until it holds together and is less sticky.
Gently pat the dough into a 6” by 12” rectangle about ¾” thick and cut into 8-3” biscuits with a floured round cutter. Place on non-stick cookie sheet. Brush with milk and sprinkle tops with sugar, if desired. Bake for 10–15 minutes or until golden brown. While still warm, slice horizontally with a serrated knife. Cover bottom with about 1/3 cup of berry mixture. Replace the tops; add a tablespoon or so of berries. Serve with prepared Spiff-E-Whip. Makes 8 servings.
Maple Hot Chocolate
1 cup ThriveLife Gourmet Hot Cocoa Mix
4 cups hot water
1 teaspoon maple flavoring
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
12 large marshmallows
In a large saucepan combine hot chocolate mix with hot water, maple flavoring, vanilla, and 8 marshmallows. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until marshmallows are melted. Ladle into 4 mugs and top each with a marshmallow.
