Chocolate-covered strawberry brownies are a decadent dessert made with fresh strawberries on top of fudgy chocolate brownies.
My favorite form of chocolate is arguably brownies. Their dense, fudgy, chewy texture is just how I want my chocolate. With Valentine’s Day in sight, I decided to add some color to my brownies and topped them with fresh strawberries.
When I think of romantic Valentine’s Day foods, chocolate-covered strawberries instantly come to mind. They’re fresh and sweet, but not too indulgent.
Well, I wanted to make them indulgent.
I thought the best way to make chocolate covered strawberries indulgent was to put them on top of a decadent dessert such as brownies. That should do the trick, right?
It certainly did. My brownie recipe is without a doubt decadent. It makes brownies that are chewy, fudgy and, most importantly, chocolatey.
So imagine biting into the fudgiest brownie you can think of. Now imagine that brownie topped with freshly cut strawberries and a smooth layer of chocolate. That is what these strawberry brownies taste like.
The sweet strawberries bring a fresh and fruity flavor to rich, chocolatey brownies. After having one (okay, two) of these brownies, I may never want to eat plain old chocolate-covered strawberries again. They just taste so much better on top of fudgy brownies!
And you will be happy to hear that they are ridiculously easy to make. I used by fudgy chocolate brownies recipe and simply topped the cooled brownies with chopped strawberries and melted chocolate. Yes, it’s that simple!
The most important step is letting the brownies cool completely so the strawberries don’t get all hot and bothered 🙂 I also suggest waiting about five to ten minutes once you drizzle the melted chocolate on top of the strawberries so it hardens slightly.
That’s the trick to keep the drizzled chocolate look in place once you start cutting the strawberry brownies !
And just like that you will have chocolate-covered strawberry brownies ready to eat. Aren’t they the perfect treat for Valentine’s Day?
But to be honest, I will most likely make these brownies whenever I have a craving for chocolate-covered strawberries.
