Quick Easy Chocolate Strawberry Dessert

Tonight I was almost done making dinner when I realized I did not have a dessert. Normally that is no big deal. I mean we do not have dessert every single night. However, We have company in from out of town and I know they love their dessert. So I whipped up these cute easy Chocolate Chip Strawberry desserts in no time. Gluten free and easy. Thanks to Udi's I had some gluten free chocolate chip cookies on hand. Perfect for when you don't have the time to make them from scratch. Here is what you need:

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 Cup Chocolate Chips
1 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream, divided
Strawberries
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup sugar
I made a quick ganache by adding 1 cup gf chocolate chips and 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream to a microwave safe dish.
Cook for 3 minutes on 50% power.
Remove from the microwave and stir vigorously until it is creamy.

Dip your washed and dried Strawberries into the chocolate one at a time and place on a dish lined with parchment paper. Once done put the strawberries in the fridge to harden. Garnish your plate with the leftover chocolate.

Whip up your whipped cream, by adding 1 cup whipping cream, vanilla and sugar to a mixer and whipping until it is fluffy. Transfer to a piping bag.
Place your Cookies on the garnished plate.
 Top them with whipped cream and then top with the strawberries.
Tada.
Gourmet dessert in no time.
