Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Shortcake

“A casual yet elegant dessert. I posted the recipe for Classic Shortcakes separately, then use this recipe to top the shortcakes. The strawberries need to stand for at least 30 minutes, but can be made the day before. Time doesn't include standing time for strawberries.”
