We Should Cocoa. We had our highest number of participants yet - 24 in total. As I have now come to expect with all the creative food bloggers out there, the diversity of entries is literally the proof of the pudding. It's good to see contributors new and old. I know I sound like a stuck record, but I'd like to try each and every one of these. Do take a look at these posts, they are well worth the effort. And don't forget to check out the Chocolate Teapot on July 1st for next month's challenge.
A creature of habit, I am listing these in the order that they came in.
Chocolate Roulade with Strawberries and Cream. What's that I hear you ask, wasn't that last month's challenge? Well yes, Dom didn't quite make it for the May Roulade round-up so snuck in first for this month instead.
Chocolate Pavlovas with Strawberries?
Strawberry Cake Balls with Popping Candy. A bag of these fascinating summer truffles would not go amiss with me.

Strawberry Shortcake Stack and mascarpone instead of cream.
Chocolate Covered Strawberry Eclairs.
White Chocolate Fairy Cakes.

Chocolate strawberries AND cream.
Stracciatella Ice Cream with Macerated Strawberries, which I defy anyone not to enjoy.

Strawberry and Chocolate Hearts.
Strawberry Goat Cheese Brownies are a top selling item for Victoria of The District Chocoholic - is anyone surprised?
Strawberry and Chocolate Shortcake. Whilst you are drooling over this, do check out her home made cake stand.
Chocolate Strawberry Shortcakes.

Strawberry & White Chocolate Muffins would be just the thing to munch on whilst watching a match.
Strawberry and White Chocolate Cheesecake. I am particularly pleased by this entry as Lesley is my aunt and as far as I know, the only member of my family to not only read this blog but to also have a blog of her own.
