Watch how to make this recipe.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Fit a baking sheet with a wire rack.

Slice the pound cake into 8 slices. Place the prepared baking sheet. Toast in the oven for 12 minutes.

In a small pot, heat 1/4 cup heavy cream over low heat. When hot, whisk in the white chocolate chips until melted and fully incorporated into the cream. Remove from the heat and chill in the fridge until cool but still a pourable consistency, about 30 minutes.

In a blender, combine three-quarters of the strawberries with the sugar. Reserve the remaining strawberries for garnish. Blend until smooth. Strain the puree through a strainer into a bowl. Cover and place in the fridge until ready to serve. Strawberry sauce can be made the day before and keep in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

In a large chilled bowl, combined the remaining 3/4 cup heavy cream and the cooled white chocolate cream mixture. Whip with a hand mixer until medium peaks form. Cover and place in the fridge while you make the French toast.

Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat.

In a baking dish. whisk together the chocolate milk, vanilla, cinnamon and eggs until well blended. Place 4 pieces of the pound cake into the egg mixture and let soak for 15 seconds. Flip and soak the other side for 15 seconds. Remove the cake from the egg mixture, allowing any excess to drip off, and place in the heated skillet with the butter. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove to a platter. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons butter to the skillet and repeat with the remaining 4 pound cake slices.

To assemble: Place a small pool of the strawberry sauce onto 4 plates, 2 to 3 tablespoons per plate. Place 2 pieces of French toast onto each plate. Top each with a large dollop of the white chocolate whipped cream, sprinkle with the some chocolate chips and garnish with a fresh strawberry and mint sprig.
