Ingredients

For the strawberry cream cheese frosting

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped strawberries
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 3 to 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1-2 drops red food coloring if desired

For the Fudge Drizzle (optional)

  • 3 tablespoons butter melted
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup or honey
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk or cream

Instructions

  • Make the brownies as directed in the recipe or on the box and let them cool.
  • Meanwhile, make the frosting. In a large bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese and butter until fluffy. Add the strawberries and 3 cups of powdered sugar and beat together slowly. Add enough of the remaining powdered sugar to form a spreadable consistency. Spread on cooled brownies.
  • To make the fudge drizzle, add the melted butter, cocoa powder, corn syrup powdered sugar and milk or cream to a microwave safe bowl. Stir together and microwave for about 20 seconds. Stir again. Drizzle warm glaze over cooled brownie bites. Glaze will set when cooled.

Notes

The fudge drizzle is optional. I just think it makes them look extra yummy! 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.
