Everyone was so impressed with this scrumptious filled chocolate heart that I served at a banquet. Now you can enjoy getting rave reviews from family and friends when you serve it.

What You Need:

(Makes: 8-10 servings)

8 ounces of semisweet chocolate, chopped

1 tablespoon of shortening

2 packages (3 ounces each) of cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup of butter, softened

1 & 1/2 cups of confectioners' sugar

1/3 cup of baking cocoa

2 tablespoons of milk

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

2 & 1/2 cups of heavy whipping cream, whipped, divided

1 & 1/2 cups of fresh strawberries, halved

What You Do:

STEP 1) Line a 9 inch 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 inch up the sides.

STEP 2) Refrigerate pan for 1 minute and 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.

STEP 3) 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.

STEP 4) Gently fold two-thirds of the whipped cream into cream cheese mixture. Spoon the mixture into heart. Insert star tip #32 into a pastry or plastic bag; fill with the remaining whipped cream and pipe around the edge of heart. Garnish with strawberries.

STEP 5) Happy Valentine’s Day & Enjoy!
