This is a favorite dessert in our house. It's something we have year round, and always on Valentine's Day. The china plate you see in the photo is the same china I've eaten off of for special occasions since I was a little girl. I took this photo when King-Man and I had this dessert on Valentine's Day. Yum.

All you need to make this decadent dessert is angel food cake, hot fudge sauce, strawberries, and whipped cream. All of these things can be prepared ahead, so it's easy to assemble these inviting dessert plates at the last minute. That makes this a great dessert to serve guests.

When serving a large group, I've set up a dessert bar buffet where guests can assemble their own dessert plate. It's easy to double or triple the ingredients to accomodate any number of guests. You can keep the fudge sauce hot in a crock pot or fondue pot. Set the whipped cream in a bowl of ice to keep it chilled. I usually just offer the simple combination of ingredients described above; but you can also offer other toppings for guests to choose from like raspberries, mangos, blueberries, caramel sauce, marshmallow creme, and chopped nuts.

Make it a yummy day!
