Preparation

  1. In medium bowl, mix strawberries with 1/4 cup of the sugar; refrigerate while juices develop, at least 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheet with foil. Lightly brush melted butter on all sides of each bowl. Place 1/2 cup of the sugar in large resealable food-storage plastic bag. Place 1 bowl at a time into bag, and gently shake until bowl is coated in sugar. Place bowls on cookie sheet. Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until browned on edges and firm to the touch. Bowls will crisp as cooled. Remove to cooling rack to cool.
  3. In chilled medium bowl, beat whipping cream, remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and the vanilla with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.
  4. Spread 2 tablespoons whipped cream in each bowl. Use slotted spoon to divide strawberries among bowls. Divide remaining whipped cream evenly among strawberry-filled bowls. Sprinkle each with chocolate curls.

Expert Tips

  • To make chocolate curls, pull a swivel-bladed vegetable peeler down the edge of chocolate bar, using long, thin strokes.
  • Sliced bananas make a nice addition to the strawberry filling.
