    Drizzle a little rich chocolate sauce on the plate for something extra fancy.

    I made this in muffin cups and it worked wonderfully for individual deserts. They looked fancy but were very simple to make.

    Delicious blend of rich flavors. Don't skimp on the strawberries and try a little shredded coconut garnish to complete the treat.
