Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake ~ by Kelsey

I found this recipe on

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup milk
2 pints strawberries, sliced, with sugar
1 (12 ounce) container whipped topping
2 tablespoons chocolate syrup (I forgot to do this part)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Grease two 9 inch layer pans.  In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Cut in butter until it's coarse crumbs.  Add milk, mixing just until moistened.  Spread the batter evenly in the two pans.  Bake at 400 degrees for 15 or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool.  Combine strawberries and sugar (I used a little Splenda).  Cover the bottom layer with whipped topping, then strawberries, then a little more whipped topping.  Put the top layer on and put more whipped topping and more strawberries.  Drizzle with chocolate syrup.
