Strawberries & Cookies in Warm Dark Chocolate Toffee Sauce

I’m having a love affair with toffee sauce all because I bought the Stonewall Kitchen variety on accident. I thought I grabbed two of their Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Sauce. (If you haven’t tried it, you must), and was a little disappointed when I got home and realized I had grabbed a Dark Chocolate Toffee Sauce instead. I’ve been enjoying it on homemade ice cream but one night, when a girlfriend of mine was over watching Sabrina, I decided to whip this up. It’s fast, simple, and elegant.  I’m not including quantities here, since you could make this for one or twenty just as easily.

Pillows of freshly whipped Bailey’s cream never hurt dessert.

Strawberries & Cookies in Warm Dark Chocolate Toffee Sauce

Chill glass bowl & beaters at least half an hour before you want this dessert.
Wash fresh strawberries. Pat dry.
Crush a chocolate chip cookie or two into serving dishes.
Layer strawberries on top.
Whip heavy whipping cream in chilled glass bowl until soft peaks form. Add a spoonful of powdered sugar and a splash of Bailey’s Irish Cream.
*Slowly warm Stonewall Kitchen’s Toffee Sauce in the microwave on a medium power level until smooth and liquified.
Pour toffee sauce on top of strawberries and crushed cookies.
Top with heaping pillows of whipped Bailey’s cream.

That’s it! Looking back, a sprinkling of cinnamon atop the cream would have enhanced the presentation of this dish. If you try that, tweet me a photo @krwatson!

*You could, of course, make your own toffee sauce. My mom makes a delicious toffee sauce in no time at all. But when Stonewall Kitchen’s is this good and already in your fridge, it’s too tempting to use it!
