Dive into a decadent duo of rich chocolate and tangy strawberry ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ“


For the Fudgy Brownie Base:
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

For the Cream Cheese Layer:
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Strawberry Swirl:
1/2 cup strawberry preserves or jam
Fresh or frozen strawberries, optional for extra texture


Prepare the Brownie Base:
Preheat your oven to 350ยฐF (175ยฐC). Grease a 9-inch square baking pan or line it with parchment paper.
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Remove from heat and stir in sugar, eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
Beat in the cocoa powder, flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread the batter into the prepared pan.

Make the Cream Cheese Mixture:
In a medium bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 egg, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. Beat until smooth and creamy.

Assemble the Brownie:
Drop spoonfuls of the cream cheese mixture on top of the brownie batter.
Heat the strawberry preserves slightly to make it more fluid (if using jam that’s too chunky, you can blend it or pass it through a sieve for a smoother consistency).
Drop spoonfuls of the strawberry sauce over the cream cheese mixture.
Using a knife or a toothpick, gently swirl the cream cheese and strawberry sauce into the brownie batter to create a marbled effect. Be careful not to overmix.

Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the brownies and the cream cheese are set and slightly golden.
Let the brownies cool in the pan, then refrigerate them for a few hours to set completely for cleaner cuts.

Cut into squares once completely cooled.
Optional: Garnish with fresh strawberry slices before serving.

Enjoy your Fudgy Brownies with Strawberry Cream Cheese Swirls, a beautiful dessert with a rich, chocolatey base and a creamy, fruity topping that’s sure to impress!
