Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Line heavy large baking sheet with silicone baking pad or parchment paper. Combine chocolate and 1/3 cup sugar in food processor and process until chocolate is finely ground. Add flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt; process until combined. Add butter and process until mixture resembles fine meal. Mix egg with milk in small bowl to blend; pour over flour mixture in processor and pulse just until combined. Spoon dough into six 3-inch mounds on prepared baking sheet, spacing evenly. Sprinkle with remaining 2 teaspoons sugar. Bake until cooked through, about 18 minutes. Carefully transfer shortcakes to rack. Cool completely.

Shortcakes can be made 1 day ahead. Wrap individually in plastic and store at room temperature.

Toss strawberries and 1/4 cup sugar in large bowl. Let stand until juices form, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour.

Combine cream, sugar and vanilla in cream whipper.

Using serrated knife, carefully split shortcakes horizontally in half. Place bottom halves on each of 6 plates. Top shortcakes with strawberries, chocolate sauce, then whipped cream. Top with shortcake tops and serve.

Will make this again!
This was so good - and it tastes as good as it looks! The whole family enjoyed it. It's ALOT of dessert. And 2 lbs of strawberries sounds like too much, but it works out in the end. Not much prep time, and so worth the effort!
