Fudgy Brownies with Strawberry Frosting

Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting

This past weekend, I had a pan of our favorite Homemade Brownies sitting on the counter and some extra Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting in the fridge. One thing led to another and these strawberry frosted brownies were born.

With an added drizzling of fudge across the top to dress them up, I had a fancy-looking dessert ready in just a few minutes.

The fudge drizzle is optional. I just think it makes them look extra special! You can either drizzle the fudge on the brownies before you cut them or wait until you cut them and drizzle each individual brownie. I drizzled the brownies after I cut them.

Frosting Ingredients:

  • finely chopped strawberries
  • cream cheese
  • butter
  • powdered sugar
  • OPTIONAL: red food coloring for a brighter pink color
Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting takes brownies to a new level!

Brownie Recipes

Want to elevate your next pan of brownies? Try one of the tips below!

  • Add frosting in any flavor you love. For the recipe, I chose to use strawberry cream cheese frosting. However peanut butter frosting or coffee buttercream sound delicious too!
  • Add any of your favorite mix ins. Stir chopped nuts, chocolate chunks, peanut butter cups or Oreos into the batter before baking. 
  • Make a brownie skillet cookie. Bake the brownie batter in a skillet, and top with ice cream, peanut butter and hot fudge while its still warm and dig in with a spoon.
  • Swirl in some caramel or raspberry jam into the batter before your bake them. And then add some more on top when they come out. 
  • Add chocolate frosting and a generous amount of sprinkles. The visual appeal on this one will please any child or kid at heart.
