What you Need to Make Brownies with Strawberry Topping:

I know a lot of people prefer to use box mixes when it comes to certain things and I can totally understand that.  But when it comes to these brownies, they’re just as easy as any box mix and taste just as good. To make these strawberry brownies from scratch, you’ll need:

  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Eggs
  •  Vanilla
  • Cocoa powder
  • All purpose flour
  • Salt
  • Strawberries
  • chocolate chips

How to Make Brownies with Strawberries: 

A great thing about this recipe is that it’s also an easy one bowl recipe.  Just mix everything up in one bowl, pour it into the pan, top with chocolate chips and strawberry hearts and pop it into the oven.

The hardest part of making these brownies?  Waiting for them to cool before you slice into them.

Tips for Baking the Best Fudgy Brownies: 

  • Do not over mix your brownie batter after adding the flour. 
  • Do not over bake them either. Mine were done at exactly 25 minutes in a 9×9-inch pan. Each oven is different. But remember, they will continue to bake slightly in the hot pan once pulled out of the oven.
  • Line your baking pan with greased parchment paper and let it overhang on both sides a little, so you can easily pull them out of the pan. 
  • Let your Brownies rest for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour before cutting.
